Heather writes: This mix is called the Funwick Flow because it’s inspired by my family, the Fenwicks – when we get together it’s good times all around! This mix wraps me in the warmth of my loved ones and instills good vibes to anyone who hears it – I can literally see the happiness seeping into my students as the songs roll on! Paul Simon is a family favorite of ours since childhood, and I love how the idea of “Hearts and Bones” actually relates to the practice of yoga in the physical body and in the yogi’s heart.
My brother Will acquainted me with “Heart it Races” over Christmas break and it’s a fun, pop-y, motivating happy tune to start getting the gears shifting. My partner Will introduced me to “Space Walk” by Lemon Jelly, which inspires an uplifting, heart-opening vibe. My brother Matt has influenced my music findings for years and brought me to The xx, The National, Wilco, Local Natives, and Groove Armada, which ends the set with a salty-dreamy-floaty retake on an old jazz tune.
Nina Simone’s “Here Comes the Sun” is a tribute to the newest member of the family, my nephew Jack, whose innocence and ridiculous cuteness has melted all of our hearts and brings a ray of sunshine wherever he goes.
It’s not your typical “new age yogi mix,” but I love playing this set at Yoga One because it’s a place where anyone who enters can be footloose and funky!
