Back by popular demand – the YOGANONYMOUS Jam of the Week — a chance to discover new (or old) music that you can incorporate into your practice, or just rock out with anytime of the day.

Strap on your puffy headphones and and bump this track. The helium-throated girl-next-door, Ellie Goulding, is here to take the edge off your day. Her cover of The Weeknd’s High For This is a study in contrasts. She sounds like she’s made of cotton candy, but the beat comes in chunky. Lean with it. Rock with it.

These beats are perfect for a rainy day home practice. The highs and lows might just balance your crown and root chakras. Go ahead, get lucky.

420? Notice, this song is a tantalizing four minutes and twenty seconds long. Ellie says, “Trust me boy,you wanna be high for this.” Shawty must be talking ’bout green tea.

  1. your writing inspires me… love how you describe this song. i love her. i am bumpin this right now as i drink coffee & read emails. not exactly what you had in mind, but i’m enjoying it.

    • Glad you like the jam Christina. I love it too. Bump it! Coffee and email listening is what I had in mind, actually. I don’t partake in the ganja at all. Just trying to sound more adventurous than I truly am. I never say never though. Justin Bieber’s advice…
