Nicki Doane and Eddie Modestini’s Playlist


By YJ Editor  |  

For yoga teachers Nicki Doane and Eddie Modestini, music and yoga are two great tastes that taste great together. “Music and yoga go together. Yoga can open up the physical body. And music keeps you engaged vibrationally. It’s uplifting and inspiring,” says Doane. The duo encourages you to practice to the music you enjoy. To get you started, they created the sequence in the June 09 issue’s Home Practice and infused it with some of their favorite songs to make you feel alive and to connect you with your true nature. When you start the accompanying playlist, warm up with a few rounds of Sun Salutation A. As you practice, let yourself feel the rhythm and move to the groove. Play and have fun with your yoga. All the while, the accompanying music will guide your practice, move your body, and inspire your life. When you hear the song “One Step Closer to You” picking up speed, start to emerge from Savasana and notice the world around you. You’re sure to feel elevated.
