Stop everything you are doing. Yes, right now - put your phone down, stop responding to your friend’s text, and that Instagram caption can wait.
Take a breath in. . . and a giant exhale out let it go.
One more time even DEEPER now. Inhale let your lungs fill up, now really fill them up as MUCH as you can . . .yes keep filling . . . now hold it for a few seconds at the top . . . exhale let it go.
Feel more calm, relaxed, and centered? If so, great you’re one of the few people I’ve met where taking a few breaths has calmed everything down.
If not, welcome to the other 98% of the population (myself included) where we need that little extra push, that nudge into the “zen like” state we are all after.
For me, this is what yoga provides. It’s that much needed secondary way to not only dive into a deeper sense of mind and self, but to most importantly RELAX and take a few moments for yourself out of your chaotic life. As a yoga practitioner and instructor for over 2 years, I have come to appreciate how music heavily influences our thought patterns and overall well being. I have learned to recognize the subtle nuances in songs that allow students (and myself) to get the most out of yoga and their practice, and with this playlist I hope to help you achieve just that. Whether that be flowing through a 90 minute vinyasa class, or letting your mind slip into the deepest realms of your consciousness for a mere 10 minutes on your commute to work, this playlist is for you.
So pause your chaotic life, breathe, and listen - your path to taming your wild mind begins by hitting play.
About The Curator - Cam Bigelow
Cam is a music and yoga fanatic where he spent the last few years honing his skills and passion in the heart of beautiful Boulder, Colorado. He composes his classes based upon what feels best in his body and adds a little “flair” in which he draws from seasoned yoga instructors around the Boulder area. He is always on the hunt for the next song that will “wow” his students and will take his class to the next level. When not obsessing over his playlist for the 12th time or teaching on his mat, you can find Cam exploring all the nature Boulder has to offer, jamming out on his ukulele, and perfecting his bacon-wrapped scallop dinner.
Raised in Orange County, California and residing in Boulder for the last eight years, Cam is shaking up his life by moving to San Francisco in the next few months. For more information about Cam’s yoga practice, check out his website cambyoga.com and Instagram @cambyoga.
