Yoga -ish

2016
Cover:Yoga -ish

What with all the recent, and future, goings on around the globe we thought now was probably a good time to take up yoga.

First we found a good teacher, who’s actually great and we’ll make it easy for you; you can find her here. Then we started twisting, stretching and pulling but we became aware that even though our head was supposed to be clear as an alpine meadow we couldn’t help thinking about soundtracks. This, no doubt, shows we’re pretty base beings and, given our usual taste in music, that’s probably no great revelation.

So we put together this little hour of ‘somewhat’ suitable music. There’s a definite lack of any ‘new-age’ and it’s a little on the base (bass) side but, hey, at least we’re true to ourselves.

It’s just over an hour, starts slow for a warm up, goes low and propulsive then mellows out at the end. It’s probably pretty far from most folks idea of a perfect yoga playlist – but then we’re pretty far from most folks idea of perfect yogis.

And breathe…
