Yoga music hunt

by Kim on June 6, 2013

Every time I go to a BodyFlow class, I fall in love with one of the songs that’s played and try my darndest to memorize a few of the lyrics so I can go home and look it up.

And of course, every time, I forget the lyrics within about 2 minutes. (Or I decide I like the next song even better and start focusing on trying to remember those lyrics…and then forget them too…)

So then I thought, hey, what if it were a perfect world and Les Mills posted their playlists online??

Well guess what:

BodyFlow tracklist

They only post the playlist from the latest release on the LM site, but this Australian website seems to have ALL OF THEM on their Body Balance page (Body Balance is Australian for Body Flow). All you need to know is the session number, which I’m sure your instructor could share with you.

I think this was the playlist I heard in last night’s class:

Body Balance 55

I loved the last two tracks by Richard Maddux (if you’re into soft, soothing meditation music, you should definitely check him out), and Scarlet by Brooke Fraser ended up being the song I was trying to remember.

Oh, and I tried out my new yoga mat last night—LOVED it! Much more cushiony than my previous one and zero problems with slipping (so far). It also still has that incredible new-mat smell, which I kept trying to get a whiff of during my downward dogs, AND it came with a detachable strap, which makes me look cool while carrying it.

Not as cool as Lady Gaga, though.

After last night’s class, I came home to this treat:

The proper way to eat this is: 1. Peel banana. 2. Spread cookie butter on tip of banana. 3. Take a bite. 4. Spread more cookie butter on banana. 5. Take another bite. 6. Continue until banana is gone, respecting the proper ratio of one blob of cookie butter per banana bite.

Brent watched me do this and was not very impressed. I’ve been doing it for so long I forgot it’s not exactly normal.

In other news, I’m trying to convince Mason to wear a baseball hat.

My reasons include: summer eye shade, cuteness, and prop opportunities at his upcoming 1-year pictures (not necessarily in that order).

However, so far, I’ve only been able to get him to leave it on for more than 2 seconds if it’s backwards.

Not sure if I should be encouraging that. Like all moms, I know the inevitable progression: first, a backwards hat, then DRUGS.

This morning, the gangsta and I checked this out:

I’ve decided to make a point of visiting more of the small, local farmer’s markets this summer.

And I do mean small. You’re seeing almost all of it there.

We have a HUGE Saturday morning market downtown, which is so amazing that it makes all the other ones look like garage sales next to a mall, but it’s occurred to me that I don’t have to wait until Saturday and fight the crowds downtown to pick up a few fresh veggies.

They had the usual fare: in-season fruits and veggies (lots of rhubarb right now!), flowers, herbs, honey, some salsas and jams, meat, and baked goods.

Mason saw it for what it truly was: a giant, mostly empty parking lot. Aka a toddler’s dream.

Afterwards, I couldn’t resist stopping at the World Market next door, where we drooled over these cool mirrors:

Mason literally drooled over them. He loves mirrors lately—if you put him in front of one, he will make out with himself. It’s pretty hilarious.

P.S. The winner of the Color Run entry giveaway is…

Congrats Meredith! Hope you love it!

Do you ever fall in love with new music in fitness classes? If so, do you try to hunt it down later?

Do you have multiple farmer’s markets in your area? If so, do you stick to one or branch out?

love the playlists! I’ll have to check out the artists, I’m always looking for songs for my classes. :)
I agree with the banana eating, I also like to add some chocolate chips into the mix, on top of the peanut butter of course…

I totally agree that is the correct way to eat a banana – acceptable with any type of nut butter as well! ;)

I am lucky enough to have one right up the road from where I work. Every Wednesday I can stop there on my way home!
p.s. I am pretty sure Lady Gaga doesn’t actually use her yoga mat…could you imagine doing a pose in that outfit?!

The Hilldale Farmers Market is a good one too – it is on Wednesdays and Sundays from 7am – 1pm. It isn’t as huge as the Downtown market either of course, but there is usually a good selection!

I feel like if you look hard enough you can find a farmers market somewhere any day of the week around here!
