My yoga class playlist

February 27, 2013

VolumeI believe in the magic of music.

Music is an easy way to channel something inside or outside of myself. When I have emotions I can’t quite put words to, there is definitely a song that can do it for me. Some songs can take me right out of my current experience while others are completely grounding. Naturally, I use music in my yoga classes as a quick way to get students “in the mood.” Below is one of my favorite playlists:

The Mystic’s Dream by Loreena McKennitt

Moment of Surrender by U2

Eminence Front by the Who

A Different Drum by Peter Gabriel

Empty by Ray LaMontagne

For What It’s Worth (Stop, Hey, What’s That Sound) by Buffalo Springfield

Strength, Courage and Wisdom by India.Arie

Fly by Steve Winwood

I Shall Believe by Sheryl Crow

By Your Grace/Jai Gurudev by Krishna Das

By This River by Brian Eno

Life and Death by Deeper Connexions

Gymnopédie No. 1 by Erik Satie

Do you have any songs you love hearing in yoga class or would love to hear in class? Please share them here!

(Thanks to Teachasana for the inspiration to share my playlist!)

    The right music always makes my yoga experience. My favorite yoga song is Peace Train by Cat Stevens. Love the upbeat mix to get warmed up!

    • Oooooh! That’s a good one! It’s always amazing to me when a teacher uses a song that would never have occurred to me and yet it works!

  2. Ohh…I know most of those artists but don’t know those songs. Will have to get them soon. And Cat Stevens, or Yusuf Islam has some great songs for yoga!

    I would LOVE to hear this while doing yoga:

    It’s Imogen Heap’s “Hide And Seek”

    • Whoa. That Imogen Heap is some serious stuff. I’ll definitely comb through Warren’s Cat Steven’s collections for songs! Thanks!
