A Totally 80’s Yoga Playlist!

Last year, one of my yoga classes landed on my mom’s birthday. One of the things my mom and I have always enjoyed sharing is 80’s music. We’ve shared I can’t even tell you how many Poison concerts, and we used to decorate for Christmas to George Michael.

And since she occasionally drops into my classes, I decided what could be more fun than dedicating the class to celebrating her, and built a totally rad 80’s playlist featuring some of her favorite songs?!

The playlist was perfect to making the class fun and special, and I loved being able to pay tribute to the woman that made me!

To continue the fun, I’ve included the playlist we flowed to that day!


  1. Faith – George Michael

  1. Kiss – Prince & the Revolution

  1. Rio – Duran Duran

  1. Walk This Way (ft. Steven Tyler) – Run-DMC

  1. You Shook Me All Night Long – AC/DC

  1. Pour Some Sugar On Me – Def Leppard

  1. Your Mama Don’t Dance – Poison

  1. Sweet Child O’ Mine – Guns N’ Roses

  1. American Girl – Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers

  1. Don’t Stop Believing – Journey

  1. Home Sweet Home – Mötley Crüe

Okay, so American Girl came out in the late 70’s but it’s one of my moms favorites so I bent the timeline a little for her.

What other songs would you add to the list? What are some of you favorite 80s hits?
