303 Day Yoga Playlist, 2014


I cheated a little this year and included a couple of great songs about Colorado that aren't by Colorado artists.*  Happy 303 Day!!  Don't forget to wear your Colorado gear to Illegal Pete's tomorrow for some free chips & queso :)


You can listen to this playlist on Spotify by clicking here

This is my 3rd annual 303 Day yoga playlist featuring local artists.  You can find the other two playlists here and here.

*Thanks, Emily, for the Concerning Colorado playlist you sent me ages ago!  I'd never have found the Say Zuzu song without it!

  • Canyons, by Instant Empire
  • The Wolves, by Ben Howard (and check this out if you haven't seen it yet!)
  • Four (featuring Reese Weil), by Plan B

And here is the quote I shared during this week's classes:

"When we find ourselves devoid of passion and purpose, the first thing we need to do is stop.  But that's not easy. The rest of the world is zooming by at full speed.  Left alone with ourselves, without a project to occupy us, we can become nervous and self-critical about what we should be doing and feeling.  This can be so uncomfortable that we look for any distraction rather than allowing ourselves the space to be as we are."   -- Dawna Markova
