Being a yoga instructor, I have discovered many benefits of yoga over the years. I have learned that yoga is not merely some movements but it is the route through which I can connect with myself and with the world around me. The beautiful part of yoga is that it does not belong to one place or one nation. It is universal and everyone can understand the process even if they do not understand the language or the history behind this ancient practice.
What makes yoga so interesting is the fact that it is so beneficial that it actually has an impact on your physical wellness. It is understandable that exercise would make you flexible but the beauty of yoga lies in the fact that it helps in improving heart health and the working of other organs too.
Basically, when we are doing yoga, we are focusing on our bodies. For example, when we meditate, we focus on one point and let go of everything else. Yoga helps you let go of all the negative and focus on one thing, whether it is a song or hymn. Sometimes, it might even be just one word or a phrase and we call in mantra. Nowadays, music is a necessity in everyone’s lives. You keep your earphones plugged in even if you go out for grocery shopping. Why not use music in yoga too?

November Playlist for Yoga
I have made this playlist for yogis doing yoga in November. This is the most of contemplation. We are coming to the end of the year and now, we look back at everything we have done during this year. Have we gotten better? Do we need to make any improvements for next year? What have we lost and what have we found? What are our plans and resolutions for the next year? All of these thoughts come into our minds as we come to the close of a year and beginning of another.
I have tried to make this playlist very inclusive. It has songs like Tarana from Ustad Sultan Khan that will soothe you on the inside and others like The Night by 14KT that will have you mesmerized by the lyrics. You might not understand every word of every song but I assure you that you will be able to sync your movements to every beat. If you are a beginner, I invite you to do yoga online with me. Together, we can sway and move to all these songs.
