music to yoga by...or just have a moment of peace

So, my friend Stephanie is ever so much better at this whole blogging thing than me, but she constantly gives me support and a ton of inspiration!
Consider this your shout out from me, my dear!
Her blogging is what got me started back in 2009 with the very blog you are currently reading.
At the moment she is writing about some of her favorite love songs in honor of that lovely holiday that is Valentine's Day.

I completely adored her first choice

(Depeche Mode's In Your Room)

I have been listening to quite a variety of music lately, as always it depends heavily upon my mood or actions at the time.

In part of my trying to get into better health I have been doing a bit of yoga each day to relax and usually put on a bit of music to have as background noise which is mellow & reflective.

A fave right now is a folk trio whom I adore & have seen about 3 times now in various places, The Wailin' Jennys

Their song One Voice is their version of a peace song & just makes me happy to hear.

Another classic song in the yoga mix is John Lennon's Imagine

Then there is this version of Mad World which was originally done by Tears for Fears, but I love this version by Gary Jules ever so much more!

Then there is this one from Nirvana The Man Who Sold The World which was originally a David Bowie song, but something about how Kurt Cobain sang it just resonates with me.

There are of course many great songs out there, but these are a few of my favorites and I hope that they give you a moment of reflection as they do me!
