Music for the Independent Yogi

With apologies to Emerson College’s radio station, WERS (which bills itself as “Music for the Independent Mind”), I offer the playlists of Amy Leydon, one of  the country’s top yoga instructors. She’s not afraid to play something slightly inappropriate (System of a Down?!?) in between “come to a comfortable seated position” and “namaste.” Excellent dinner music, background music, and even some dance(able) music. She’s just got a unique ear and eclectic taste and makes me look forward to hearing what she comes up with next.
