In my recent article on the sexiness factor of yoga when it’s done right (for me), I mentioned a brand-new yoga playlist that I’m using for my vinyasa classes, and yes, I would make love to these tracks.

Ask and ye shall receive–so for those of you that were curious, here it is, with the youtube videos I could find! It’s called Heart and Soul Yoga, and it is not for the faint of heart or soul; also not for those that prefer saluting the sun to dirges. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. 😉


Crazy for you: Adele

All that you Give feat. Mindy Gledhill: Kaskade

Wilhelm Scream: James Blake

Hannibal: Caribou

You’re my Flame feat. Sia: Zero 7

El Estuche: Aterciopelados (yes, from the Dirty Dancing Havana Nights soundtrack)

Guajira (I Love You 2 Much): Yerba Buena (yeah, this is a sexy song [and footage from DD2])

Pennies from Heaven (Count De Money Remix): Billie Holiday

Sexy Boy: Air

Fire in your New Shoes feat. Dragonette: Kaskade

Starstruck: Santogold

Mickey Hart and Zakir Hussain: from the Global Drum Project (couldn’t find the exact song, but close enough)

We All Try: Frank Ocean

Daydreams: Adele

Silence: Matisyahu

Limit to your Love: James Blake

River Guard: Smog

I Loves you Porgy: Nina Simone

    I'd love to be in those classes, Julie. A great mix beyond the typical yoga sounds. Smog/Callahan!!! For Real, you know your stuff!

    James Blake, yes I home practice/handstand to it all the time. Was blown away by him at Pitchfork.

    Perfect timing for this article. Please share, people, with your teachers.

    Hi Mandie – this is not a CD, but a playlist made by the author – it is mostly a compilation of Youtube videos.

    Where can I buy the Frank Ocean song?? I LOVE it but can't find it!!

    thanks, I got almost all of the songs on spotify except Riding for the Feeling: Bill Callahan and River Guard: Smog. Also wasn't sure if I got the right song from Mickey Hart and Zakir Hussain: from the Global Drum Project but I chose Kaluli Groove which seemed most fitting. Couldn't find the exact version You’re my Flame feat. Sia: Zero 7 so I chose another one. The list is on my Spotify account Staffan Hillberg if anybody want's to listen to it.
