Mid-summer is a time of ripening—the gifts, skills, and talents that we have been cultivating this year begin to climax and offer up their fruits. The peak of summertime is also rich with feelings of magic, delight, celebration, and wonder. We hope this month’s collection of music encourages you to soften into the warm summer days and find light-heartedness and playfulness both on and off your yoga mat.
