If you’re currently searching for suitable music for your yoga class and are in need of a little inspiration, simply continue reading to discover how to craft the perfect playlist for your yoga classes.

Instrumental

As yoga should be a tranquil, relaxing experience, it’s highly advisable to select peaceful instrumental tracks, which don’t feature distracting lyrics. As tracks which feature lyrics can pull individuals out of their meditative zone, even if the lyrics in question, are positive and uplifting. After all, the human brain has a tendency to immediately focus on interpreting song lyrics and you don’t want to be accidentally distracted by the lyrics of the songs.

Nature

If you choose to play tracks which feature outdoor sounds such as the sound of a waterfall or a river in the background, you’ll find it far easier to relax and to put aside your everyday worries in order to focus on your yoga poses. Alternatively, you may be interested in putting on tracks which include the sound of birds chirping. Especially if you plan on attending or running morning yoga classes.

World Music

Whether you’re looking for slow tracks which you can use for the warm-up portion of your yoga classes or you’re looking for more upbeat tracks for the middle portion of your classes, it’s well worth looking to the world music genre for yoga appropriate tracks. Most world music tracks feature calming instruments such as drums and woodwind instruments, which will assist you in getting into the right frame of mind in order to focus on your yoga class.

Alternatively, if you’re a yoga teacher, you may want to try making different playlists for each class, based on world music from different parts of the world. As an example, you may want to create a playlist which features Asian music for one class and a playlist of Latin music for another.

Music for Each Sequence of Your Workout

For example, if the cooldown section of your upcoming Yoga workout lasts for 10 minutes, it’s well worth downloading a longer track which lasts 10 minutes, so you’ll be able to complete the cool-down section of your workout without having your cool down broken up by one track ending and the next track starting. Also, try to choose tracks for your warm-up which boast a slow tempo, which will allow you or your students to slowly and safely warm-up, before attempting more difficult yoga poses.

So, if you’re looking to put together a yoga playlist for your own personal use or you’re looking to put together an appropriate playlist for a yoga class, it’s well worth using the tips listed above in order to create the perfect playlist for your needs.
