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.
