The "Put Me In My Happy Place Again" PlaylistDesperately need to relax and release the tension of the day? Ivanhoe suggests you go for a slower paced yoga routine where you hold each pose for several breaths. "As you listen to the music, concentrate on where your body and the floor connect," says Ivanhoe. Our zen playlist starts out with softer indie songs, and then leads in to more meditative, instrumental songs. There's even some chanting thrown in there. So breathe in and exhale.
