Tribe Tunes: November 18

joThis week’s Tribe Tunes are provided by Tribe Yoga Jam Instructor Jo Gale. Jo leads a fierce and mindful flow class, inspired by the traditional Ashtanga-Vinyasa and Hatha practices, her own personal practice, and the connection she makes with her students. She leads her classes in a way that is fun and accessible while challenging students, and encouraging them to try something new. She aims to make her classes a release for body and mind, bringing your focus away from the constant rush of city life and to your mat.  We love her because she is fierce and feminine. Here are some of Jo’s top yoga tunes.

 

I LOVE MUSIC. Building a playlist for a yoga class is not an easy task. My class starts slow, builds up and ends slow again, once I make a playlist I listen to it and switch songs numerous times before I am happy with it, here’s a little sample…

Dr. Toast – Light : If you take my class, 70% chance you will hear this  near the beginning. Trickling piano and a subtle beat… perfect

 

Jamie XX  – Sleep Sound : When people ask me what kind of music I play, I find it hard to describe, chill, a little hip-hoppy, a little rock and roll, and a little dance-y…. This track sums it up.

 

Balam Acab – Big Boy : A favourite song to wind things down, ambient and electronic, sounds like you are floating in the ocean.

This Sunday Jo will be leading our free Tribe Fitness #YogaJam at Mountain Equipment Coop, 400 King Street West. Details are here.

Tribe Tunes: October 14

Tunes Tuesday2This month launched the return of Tribe #YogaJam, our free community yoga class offered through Tribe Fitness. During these colder seasons we’ve teamed up with MEC and have moved our complimentary #YogaJam indoors to 400 King Street West, Toronto, from 10-11am (doors open at 9:45am). Same flowy fun, same great music, just a new location to groove in.

One of the most frequent questions over the summer was where did we get our music from.  So, introducing a new blog feature, #TribeTunes Tuesday. Every week we’ll share a few of our favourite tunes which we love to sweat to and we hope you will too!

Here are four songs from my  summer #YogaJam class.  Join myself and the rest of our yoga team every Sunday at MEC  for our free #YogaJam fun! Bring your own mat and water bottle. All ages and levels welcome (babies and kids too!).
