Mother’s Day Yoga + New Playlist

Happy Mother’s Day!


While I wish that I could have spent the day with my mom I am so happy that I was able to celebrate Mother’s Day with her while I was in Florida last weekend.

I spent my Mother’s Day with beautiful, beautiful yogis teaching class, taking class and with teacher trainees. This was my fourth year in a row teaching my Sunday morning hot class on Mother’s Day and it’s always a special class full of love and energy.

I didn’t do any readings but I did play two audio pieces about motherhood during their floor work.

The first was a funny piece from NPR’s Scott Simon about what his wife does all day every day as a full-time mom.

And the second was a more emotional and heartfelt Story Corps interview between a mother and her son. I don’t have the embed code for it but here’s the link to the story. I highly recommend a listen. It’s only three minutes long.

I spent the rest of my day with the teacher trainees. They only have one weekend left in their 200 hour certification and it’s really incredible to see how much they have grown in every way imaginable since the start of their journey in January.


Today they started teaching each other entire classes and completely rocked it. I loved seeing them stand up their totally in their power, smiling and commanding the class.

Now, for this week’s playlist. Lots of good new music for you!

Standouts today include…
– A Sky Full of Stars by Coldplay
– Don’t Leave by Seven Lions featuring Ellie Goulding (it’s always a good day when there’s a new Ellie song!)
– A cover of Duran Duran’s Ordinary World from Joy Williams of the Civil Wars

Several of you have asked if I can put these on Spotify. I don’t use Spotify (I know I’m missing out!) so I’ll try to play around with that soon!

Happy Mother’s Day! Love to all of you!

    I’ve loved “Breathe Me” by Sia for ages — this is a great remix. I always enjoy your playlists — and now that I’m attending yoga (1x week — it’s a start!) I am wishing my teacher had music like this! I’m with you on enjoying Ellie songs 🙂

    Reading about the TT’s teaching an entire class gives me so much anxiety….that will be me in just a few short weeks. Congrats to them for almost completing the 200 hours!
