Tiny Yogi’s Playlist

June 15, 2011

One of my greatest joys these days is rocking my 9 month old son to sleep in his room while listening to music. I’ve been using the playlists I’ve made over the years teaching yoga at pre-schools. Recently, one of my old favorites came on and a flood of beautiful memories filled my heart. I thought I’d share these musical gems with the community. These songs were chosen especially for young children, but can be enjoyed by all. All of these songs have been collected from special sources including my teachers, friends and musicians I’ve met along the way. Hopefully you’ll find something new and off the beaten path to enliven your teaching and/or practice.

      My alter ego is “dj teacup.” A name given to me by a three year old! If you are ever in need of a special music selection, call on me. I’ve got a rich collection.

    Need to load up the itunes application and take a little listen to these.

    I have a loud room at the moment (fans, since A/C is questionable), and when I have a quieter room, I’ll need to explore the element of adding music to the kiddos yoga practice.

    Thank you!


  6. This is fabulous! Thank you for sharing these Abby! I like the ones for Savasana!
