Tim Floreen teaches in San Francisco at Yoga Tree Castro and Stanyan.
I believe music can be a powerful complement to a yoga practice.
It can open up our hearts and call forth emotions like nothing else can. That’s why putting together playlists is one of my favorite parts of teaching yoga. I like to venture outside the realm of New Age-y yoga music and create eclectic mixes that embrace music of all genres: electronic, folk, hip-hop, classic rock, and sometimes–SOMETIMES–even country. Years ago, I used to live in L.A. and listen to KCRW, an NPR affiliate with amazing music programming. I still stream KCRW online and get much of my music inspiration from them.
I hope you enjoy this!
I teach a vigorous, challenging, heated vinyasa flow class, but always with the understanding that students should modify and rest as needed, and always with the awareness that yoga is much more than just a workout. My classes also include breath work, meditation, and other traditional yogic practices, as well as plenty of lightness and silliness. And did I mention I like to play good music?
