In yoga, we utilize music to enhance the experience that is already available to us. A steady and grounding tempo in the background helps us get out of our heads, staying present in each beat and every lyric. With music being nothing other than an extension of human expression, a strong playlist gives us the courage to be vulnerable in releasing that which no longer serves us, and discovering that which does. Ali’s Flow playlist brings all of these elements into play (literally). So, put on those head phones and take a listen on your walk over–Ali’s TIUD is at 5:30 tonight!
Why do we hold all of the things, and beings, and aspects of the world to such narrow, pointed standards? To be successful looks like this, to be fit looks like that. Those people are living happy lives, while these people are sad and discontent lives. Duality is everywhere, so it seems the second we denote anything as “good,” all which opposes that, even on the most minute level, is forever burdened with the badge of “bad.” Why should one person’s version of happiness or success determine whether everyone else’s is more or less than? Life isn’t a one-size-fits-all situation. In fact, life looks different on every being who lives it!
