yoga beats

[posted by freebean]

Are you ever in a yoga class & really love the music that is accompanying your practice?  Not sure about what kind of tunes to tap or simply just don’t have the time?

Here are some no-brainers so you can stay present in your practice and not worry about what the next song should be:

  1. Take Musical Notes from a Pro Derek Beres offers his weekly yoga playlist (and is soon coming out with his own album)
  2. Look Within your own iTunes library.
  3. Get a Pre-Mixed collection, now yoga studios, like Om Yoga in NYC, are putting out their own mixed collections.
  4. Go Global – diversity will bring you into balance, try the Gipsy Kings, Bebel Gilberto, Radiohead (some of my faves).
  5. Yoga Opera – try some new genres and see what inspires you.

What shakes your asana?

  1. I’m partial to Bach’s cello concertos (the Rachmaninov version), Sigur Ros, and Niyaz. Frou Frou, Zero 7, and Anonymous 4 are often in rotation, too.

  2. i agree – love all of your picks!
