While Nashville has garnered quite a reputation for its honky tonk and hot chicken, the recent revitalization of downtown and its surrounding neighborhoods has this lively destination now brimming with hip hotel stays, artisanal boutiques and a thriving culinary scene thats been consistently gaining national attention. Known officially as “Music City,” Nashville’s proximity to the east and west coasts make it the perfect stop for a sophisticated girls weekend (bachelorette not required), filled with entertainment, eats and craft cocktails.

Know Before You Go 

Nashville, Tennessee

Just a short flight from both the east coast and west coast, Nashville is the perfect meeting point for a bicoastal friends getaway. Upon landing at BNA airport, downtown is a short 15 minute car ride away. If you plan on exploring more of the outskirts of Nashville, a car rental is recommended, but if staying downtown, parking expenses can add up, so ridesharing is the ideal way to get around. Walkable neighborhoods like Germantown, East Nashville and 12 South are all just a 15 minute ride away. While the southern summers tend to be a bit of a scorcher (not to mention the humidity), spring and fall are ideal times to enjoy the lush greenery that envelopes the city.

Yoga Video: Morning Yoga for Tight Hips and Shoulders

May 23, 2018

Disclaimer: This video is brought to you in part by SoBro Guest House, who generously hosted me while I was in Nashville for our workshop.

I was in Nashville last weekend for our workshop, which was so much fun. I love meeting YBCers in person, and I'm so thankful to all who joined us. We just announced our fall Namaslay 2.0 Yoga Workshop tour dates, so if you can make it, I'd love to meet you on the mat! 

One of the other things I loved about my quick stay in Nashville was the SoBro Guest House, where I stayed. It's not a typical hotel, as they are small apartments, which I loved. They're fully equipped with kitchens and laundry right in the apartment which are both such huge perks. We saved money by making our own breakfasts (and SoBro Guest House even had someone come and stock our fridge ahead of time!), and I was thrilled to do laundry the night before we left, so I came home with clean clothing! One less thing I have to do when I get home, you know?! 

Anyway, I shot this video outside in their patio area on Sunday before I took off. I created this gentle hip opening and shoulder opening practice figuring that it would feel especially good for anyone who wakes up feeling kind of stiff through the body. As always, be gentle with yourself, and work within a pain-free range. I hope you enjoy!! 



Can we say it? If the Guest room is rockin' don't come-a knockin'. Check! We're calling this a preview, based solely on the fun summer months ahead. If the new music coming out of Nashville is any indication of good times to follow, we're in for a cool treat. Checkout new music and remixes by Nashville artists: Halfnoise, Luthi, Cherub, Kacey Musgraves, Rayland Baxter, and Caroline Rose mixed in with some new and old feel good beats.

Temperatures nearing upper seventies have us ready for walking tours down music row, strolling the shops in 12 South, exploring Nashville's awesome park systems, evening shows at Ascend Amphitheater and ... impromptu Guest House deck sessions featuring some of Nashville's  most up and coming names. We wanted to share the energy and give you readers something to carry you through the work week. Feel free to send us any new music on Facebook and Instagram! 

Checkout Nashville locals and friends of Guest House on this playlist- Daniel Ellsworth and the Great Lakes, Daniella Mason, and Yon Ort. Also, if you haven't heard the new album "Shape the Future" by Nightmares on Wax, you should mess with the whole thing! 






Known as country music’s mecca, Nashville has somehow become fertile ground for pop artists like Daniella Mason. She’s written for Nick Jonas and toured with Demi Lovato, but now she’s stepping out on her own. Last October, Daniella released her first full-length self-titled record. Today, she premieres the video for her track, “Nightshapes,” in which she explores the monotonous, yet pivotal intimate moments of relationships. Her ethereal voice is backed by trickling electronic melodies, and scenes featuring her co-writer/guitarist/husband, Chris.

“The inspiration behind ‘Nightshapes’ is a bit peculiar as it was technically inspired by a trip to the chiropractor. One night when I was half asleep, I had this crazy realization about my husband and our 10-year relationship and how we had fallen into this beautiful, seasoned rhythm that had become so telepathic it was crossing over into our sleep. I realized that we were unconsciously mirroring each other or moving together… he would roll over and then I would roll over… our limbs would intertwine and then untangle in sync, almost like a dance. Soon after this mid-night epiphany, we saw our x-rays at the chiropractor and noticed that our spines curved in the exact same way, just in opposite directions so that the curves were facing each other. Coupled with my recent nightshapes realization moment, it was almost too much to handle. I thought it was the most poetic, weird little picture and I brought the idea into my next writing session. The producer, Sarah Emily, immediately said, ‘It’s like your spines are parentheses,’ and the song just came together in what seemed like minutes.”

WELCOMING FALL 2017, in support of STAY INN -- an outdoor party series by Guest House.

We are jazzed to bring you the STAY INN playlist as a taste of our upcoming outdoor party series. This playlist starts off chill and sultry with Beacon's  (Ghostly Intl / VN. Mgmt) "Marion", moving on to a sprinkling of some spicy chai R&B from Nashville local R.LUM.R "Close Enough." Our friend Erick Wilson aka Yon Ort (👀) continues the local love with his first single "What You Feel," and it feels so good.

The dance party picks up wth new music from Body Language, gets weird with Four Tet, then takes us even 'Higher' with Mondo Cozmo. Finally, we let our semi-local friends Tennis, by way of Denver (...we will claim you) take you home with their sexy new dance track "No Exit".

Be on the look out for media from our first Stay Inn party featuring DJ Brent James with a cameo from Jason Huber of Cherub. Sign Up for THE GUEST LIST below!

The new guys in town, WONDR MUSIC, stopped by to talk all things Nashville, their new single, and how they hotel-hang. 


We can't start this without asking, how did you all meet? 

We actually met in college our freshman year at Belmont through some mutual friends. We lived in the same dorm where a group of us started playing NBA Jam almost daily and all became tight after the first semester. Our core group is pretty much all our friends from freshman year. We both messed around with music our freshman year, but started making music together our Senior year (2016). I (Nick) actually wanted to manage Ryan at first. He did a semester in Brooklyn and when he came back, his rapping and producing were both next level. He asked me to be his hype man for a Halloween show and from there we both kinda decided this is what we wanted to do. 

Every artists' favorite question (ha); Where do you draw inspiration from? 

A lot of what I write about is basically a way of expressing my surroundings, or what I hope to be surrounded by in the future. I draw inspiration from previous and current relationships with girls, friends, and the constant drive for success. -Ryan

A lot of what we talk about is relationship driven, but I'm inspired by a lot of different things. Whether it's something I read or a conversation I had, I find inspiration in a lot of different places. Especially in cool ass rooms like SoBro. -Nick

What’s the worst thing you’ve ever seen in a hotel room? 

Montezuma Tequila... Spring Break Junior year it was the cheapest tequila we could find. We bought a handle and it sat on our night stand the rest of our trip.  Every time we walked into the room it was just a terrible reminder of the best and worst eight dollars we'd ever spent. 


Next stop on your travel list? 

We’re trying to plan a trip to Greece in August, but for the Fourth of July we're planning on going to Charleston, SC. Go Cocks.


What MUST be in your fridge at all times?

A dozen eggs, BBQ sauce (gotta have some sauce), almond milk, spinach, zucchini lasagna, and chicken. We've both got really into cooking cause we're trying to save some money and it's been pretty cool learning different recipes. 


What’s next on the music front? 

Now that we're both fully committed to making music we've had a lot of time to create. The plan is to just keep making music and dropping singles every month or so and put out another music video soon too!




Summer is here and hot chicken can literally be fried on the streets of Broadway. Music City is warm to put it mildly, but the way we see it you’ve got one option; SWEAT IT OUT, while trying to play it cool

Lawn Daze is here for you. Consider it your subterranean sound of the next few months while you lay low in your backyard and take turns in the mini-pool. Cold beer in hand. 

Featuring local faves Biyo’s new hit ‘Moments’, Los Colognes’ ‘Flying Apart’, and those new guys WONDR debuting their ‘Moves'. We’re also stoked to see Foster the People circling back around with a few new jams. And of course, anything Nick Murphy and/or Kaytranada is an instant ‘go’.  Check your ego cuz’ we’re ALL sweaty. Enjoy.
