Music adds such a tremendous energy to any group exercise class so it is very important to always keep it fresh and exciting! Whether I am teaching Pilates, Yoga, Relaxation Yoga, Power Yoga, Yogalates or Spinning the music may make or break the class. I am always looking for and adding new artists, songs and genres to my workout mixes to ensure something fresh and intoxicating each and every class.
