Groove With the Music

Jenn Holmes Fort Worth Yoga

When it comes to building a playlist, it can be some serious business. Okay, maybe some serious fun business! For real though, when it came to building my first playlist for a public class, it felt somewhat daunting. I always stressed over playing music for a room of people, but then I realized I was creating the atmosphere and as long as what I chose wasn’t offensive, it might just help someone grow out of their zone or feel in their zone!

That’s the best part about music. It is different for everyone who hears it, feels it, experiences it! The same goes for yoga. Everyone has a different experience in their own body while they all may be taking the same class. So what could be better than creating your own playlist for your personal practice, your group class, your girls brunch - you name it! Creating something special with an end goal in mind feels so liberating once you do it!


How to build an awesome yoga playlist!


1. Theme is key


Whether it’s cozy night vibes, party rock or an entire playlist devoted to song about cats (I’ve done it and it rocked) - coming up with a theme or vibe for the playlist helps in curating the right kind of songs. This can help keep your tempo’s on track. Slowly building into those big upbeat songs and slowly making your way back to a low key sound. Coming from a background in music (nerd alert), I think of it in crescendos (<) and decrescendos (>). Pretty cool right?


2. Mix it up!


It’s fun to mix up different genres into the playlist in order to keep your listeners and practitioners on their toes. If you haven’t heard the songs fully before - make sure you do so that you know how one fades in to the other. Weird transitions aren’t the end of the world, but seamless transitions for the mood make your playlist keep going strong! Keep it new with fresh sounds in between songs of the moment.


3. Listen and Edit


Consider who is attending you class or gathering. Listen to what moves you, but edit out what doesn’t work. If I find something I like, but it doesn’t fit in with the vibe I’m working with, I will keep it on the back burner for later. Who knows when that one might come in handy!


4. Figure out your length


If you’re building a playlist for an outlined period of time, like a class, make sure you have a little time in the beginning to end to slowly ease in and out. I once made a playlist that was an hour for an hour and 15 minute class, that was definitely a learning curve! Check your times, and when i doubt - make it long or purposely short to let you students be okay with silence.


5. Let loose, it’s fun!


Above all else, listen to what moves you and makes you want to share with your audience. Music and yoga have two main things in common - they are food for the soul. So let your soul get full on what makes you happy and share that joy with people you care about!

Need a home practice playlist? Here's one of my favorites! 

Come find out what I’ve put on my playlist! Either in my weekly classes or at my special January class on Friday, January 26th - for a Funky Soul Flow! Let the music move you, loves!

Funky Soul Flow

Let's move and groove to some old soul and funk! This is a fun all-levels flow focusing on fun! This funky class will come with the sounds of legends as we flow through an invigorating practice that will awaken your inner god and goddess!

Happy Yogidays: Holiday Gift Guide

Holiday Gift Guide for Yoga

The holidays can be hard. The balance between gift giving and smart consumerism can be a challenge. Our best solution? Start small and mindful. You can usually find the best gift just around the corner or made by a "friends sister's daughter". Take all of that and add to the list that your recipient is super passionate about yoga (an activity that has very little material requirements) and it's easy to get stuck in gift card mode. We scoped out our favorite local Fort Worth and eco-conscious artisans and small businesses and put together our 2017 Holiday Gift Guide for Fort Worth Yogis.

6. Private Yoga Session

The BEST gift you can give your favorite yogi is something a little more luxurious. Give them the opportunity to practice 1 on 1 with their favorite Fort Worth teacher. Is there specific skills they've been wanting to learn, or are they interested in a Reiki session? Either way it will be an experience they won't soon forget!

Are you a yoga practitioner? What's on your wishlist this holiday season? Or what is the best gift you've recieved in the past?
