If you follow me on Instagram or read my last post, then you’re already privy to my unlikely transformation to a ~*yogi*~ (said with irony to mask how truly into yoga I am these days). I’m going to be talking more about my experience with CorePower Yoga Teacher Training in subsequent posts, but today’s post is decidedly non-yogic. Today I’m sharing my Winter 2017 Workout Playlist.
YTT entails a lot of yoga, as you may imagine. And while it’s no doubt a good workout (mind & body; om), I feel best in my body when I’m incorporating strength training as well. Plus ragdoll and half pigeon actually feel better when your muscles are sore from other, more strenuous workouts. I could say that I’ve been struggling to find the time to get in the gym between yoga sessions, but in reality, I think it’s more a question of motivation.
This week marks the end of 4 straight weeks of travel, so now that I have more autonomy over my own schedule, I’m aiming to get 2 strength training sessions in at the gym, plus yoga on top. It’s not much, but it’s something I should actually be able to manage.
And nothing motivates me to get in the gym more than a new workout playlist. (Ok, actually I’m actually way more excited by a new pair of leggings, but this is a far cheaper alternative.) So, if you’re also in the need of an extra boost of energy, enjoy this hour of hip hop heavy, completely NSFW string of songs to sweat to. Subscribe on Spotify so you can take it with you to the gym!
