I was able to chat with music enthusiast and amazing yoga instructor Jamie Horgan. When I first took one of Jamie’s classes I really connected with her playlist and each sequence seemed to be perfectly choreographed with the music. I wanted to ask her, what are the benefits of integrating music & yoga and how do you create your magical playlists?

2. Meditation: Contrary to popular belief, mediation is not about silence. No matter where you are in meditation, there will always be sounds going on around.
