It’s no secret that I’m not Adriene’s biggest fan, but I found myself really needing her introductory touchy-feely speech today. After a long day, yoga really is the best stress reliever and I found myself needing a little pep talk to let go of everything that was on my mind. I also really enjoyed the full body flow she put together and will definitely feel it in my arms and obliques tomorrow. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1SvHXqenPs

I had a late night and practically had to drag myself out of bed this morning. I found myself watching the clock throughout, a definite sign that you’re not having a good spin. BUT even though I was tired, I still have a promising spinning mix for you this morning. 1. Warm up – don’t try to hit the beat on this one if you’re cold. 2. Stay seated, turn the resistance up to 4 or 5. 3. Drop the resistance down to 4 (if you aren’t there already) and drop down onto your bars into an arrow…

So I was quite surprised to have found a playlist I really enjoyed… well until my data connection freaked out and I got kicked off the playlist near the end L Also, you may notice that the names of the tracks are not what you’re listening to. When I went back to listen to the playlist again, everything…

Ok, I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I choose spinning playlists based on their cover pic. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t. But while I was first hooked by this evening’s playlist’s image, it was the “soulcycle” tag that also caught my eye. Now I’ve heard about SoulCycle a few times, but I never really knew what it was all about. So I checked out their website, and it all seems pretty hippy, airy fairy, one love brother.

It’s the first full flow of the series. And if like me you struggled to get up this Monday morning it’s come at the perfect time. I enjoy flows when I’m feeling low on energy as the breathing techniques help restore your body and bring back that missing energy. So enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHb71QonmXo
