    I started teaching at a gym in group fitness classes. I had some traditional yoga music pop up in my playlist, and it's just not the right vibe for that setting. I've been to studios and I hear really cool music that seems modern. Where are those pla...

    Yoga playlists can be fun and accessible. I play all kinds of music depending on where I am teaching. Check out my playlists for yoga on Spotify. Millie Loves Yoga. One playlist you might like is Summer Yoga. No vocals Just amazing healing sounds.

    Anyone into Aerial Yoga? It’s so fun!! #Athleta 

    Yes, I have done aerial yoga off and on for a few years. It does dig into your body, but I sometimes wear one of those waist wraps, to prevent pain. I have an aerial sling in my home.

    What should I know before starting yoga in my mid 60s? I'm not sure if I'm flexible enough to do some of the moves. And what benefits do other older women find from starting yoga? 

    Take a look at the "Yoga After 50" book by Larry Payne, Ph.D. It is available in the King County library system. It has good discussions about poses and modifications. Have fun and do what works for you!

    Hi! I love the suggestions of dumbbells and using fists. I would also suggest that you be really mindful to engage your forearm and arm muscles and really focus on using those to help you stabalize yourself. Often times I see students with wrist issu...
