    I currently really love the song Something in the Water by Carrie underwood as a cool down song! I think the message is a really great way to end a class with a positive, “I feel accomplished enough to take on the day” feeling. (I teach a morning class) and it leads nicely into my stretch song.

    Hi Cynthia,

    I just want to thank you so very much for all the work you’ve done, learning, developing, and then sharing! all your wonderful class and playlist ideas. I recognize how much time and energy you’ve put into this, and I send you a big high five from the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia! I’ve really benefited from your kind and generous contribution to the indoor cycle community. Thanks, cycle sister!

    I totally forgot about this song until I was trolling through my iPod today

    The Beloved – Sweet Harmony (5:03) – an excellent cool-down song. I love the chorus!
