Yoga Music with Mel Russo (E35)

Mel arrives at LTNF with a vast amount of musical knowledge. It began when she was a child in a highly musical household. Opera, classical, jazz filled her ears from a young age. And her parents must have excelled at introducing good music to the family if Mel’s musical taste is any example, for the playlist that she brought us this week is… stunning!

Mel and I met in person (a first for this remote host) in The Catskills, about two and a half hours from my Manhattan Tower. Mel’s links:

Mel’s Yoga Practice

I teach a strong breath-centered and alignment-based vinyasa class. When we’re practicing in person I offer hands-on adjustments, with your consent of course. I’m known for my playlists, which I put a lot of love and energy into. I craft them to insure the best possible experience for you. In my classes you’ll hear everything from A Tribe Called Quest to Krishna Das. I hope you’ll find an old song you once loved but forgot about, or a new song to make you smile.
