Yoga Playlists (part two)

It's Sunday so that means that it's time for another yoga playlist. This one is pretty recent and I used it as a chance to throw in more contemporary "indie" music. This one played very well in the Uptown studio. I've only used it for C2s but I don't see why it wouldn't work for C1s as well (speaking in Corepower terms)

Ka-ba Vinyasa 14

1. Over The Horizon Radar by Boards Of Canada from "Geogaddi"
2. Fair Oaks by Phil Western from "4am"
3. Kids by MGMT from "Time to Pretend - EP"
4. Soldier Jane by Beck from "The Information"
5. L.E.S. Artistes by Santogold from "Creator / L.E.S. Artistes - Single"
6. M79 by Vampire Weekend from "Vampire Weekend (North American Edition)"
7. Ghostwriter (Remix) by RJD2 from "The Horror"
8. Hallogallo by Neu! from "Neu 1"
9. Kodac Moments by The Modernist from "Kangmei"
10. Fish Beach by Michael Nyman from "Drowning By Numbers"
11. Thank You by Angie Mattson from "Given to Sudden Panic and Noisy Retreat"
12. Silencio by Ely Guerra from "Lotofire"
13. Seymour Stein by Belle & Sebastian from "The Boy With The Arab Strap"
14. Ferris Wheel by Donovan from "Sunshine Superman"
15. Le soleil est près de moi by AIR from "Le soleil est près de moi - EP"
16. Aguirre III by Popol Vuh from "Aguirre (Original Soundtrack)"

Notes: You may already notice that I use certain artists and even certain albums repeatedly. I usually end my playlists with Popol Vuhs "Aguirre III" because it works really well and I love the track (it's what I want played at my funeral). Ely Guerra appears a lot as do Air, Neu!, Harmonia, Boards of Canada and the Modernist. I recommend that everyone putting together playlists have a small pool of artists that they pepper a good chunk of their playlists with. This will give your class "sound" a consistency and it will also let you experiment by bringing newer sounds in while still maintaining that core consistency.

Everything here is available from iTunes (this is rare so enjoy!). I've submitted it and should have a link for the page soon.

In this playlist Boards start things off, Nyman comes in for the post inversion childs and Aguirre is the savasana track.
