Everyone knows I’m a dancer, first, then a yoga strike-a-poser. I haven’t really done much yoga to music and I find that I’m more focused in silence, OHMs, or listening to my breath. I caught myself ‘enjoying the silence’ in the absence of car radio music, but realized I was listening to the wind like when I’m riding my bike, a white noise I didn’t really know I liked. I’ve started becoming aware of the sounds around my work campus. I listen to trees and birds but mainly use my hearing senses to hear the bus and gage how long before I miss it toting my laptop and mega-sized purse with, sometimes with/sans carefully-maneuvered coffee mug. I added Yogi music to spotify account, but not feeling it much. It would please me so much if I could coordinate yoga practice to music I feel makes me breathe, maybe faster than deeper, but I’d work on it.

HELL-O! “Here comes the sun” It’s been a hard day’s night, and now I’m feelin’ downward dog. 😉
#17 MY FAVORITE YOGI – I really had no idea that her whole Ray of Light stretch was about the Shanti spiritual realm and yoga practice… maybe had I been doing “yoga” I could have recognized it. So let’s listen and maybe cherish the stretch and “OPEN our HEARTS” to some Shanti, Shanti…
Well, then again… There’s my Gaga in my favorite Bikram pose. Just won’t choose between them, but I know I love Bikram, sweat and tears. They say its competitive and I remember hoping that one day I’d be tapped to join a team, but then I thought – it’s not about that… and when it is, it’s no longer about self.
