If you have developed the habit of doing yoga as a young adult, then it is quite great because you will be taking this habit till your old age and that is when you need it the most. As a young person, your body is filled with so much energy but your brain is not always that energetic. There are so many questions in your mind. What am I here for? Am I where I need to be in life right now? Am I doing everything right? Everyone wants to know that what they are doing is right and that they are serving their purpose in the world. This is why we set resolutions and goals. We need something to look forward to and we all want to have something that we can work for.With yoga, you can connect to your inner self. Yoga provides you a calm environment in which you can get in touch with yourself and learn your purpose. It gives you the ability to connect with the parts of you that you never knew existed. You will be able to look at thoughts and memories much differently. Yoga slows your life down and allows you to pick up any part of it and contemplate. This is why yogis are so content and have a better understanding of themselves and the world around them.

Doing Yoga to Relaxing Music

The whole aim of yoga is to slow down and relax. When your mind relaxes, it does not only bring contentment but a lot of mental health and wellness too. Studies have shown you important yoga is to bring down the severity of different mental diseases. What better way to amplify the effect of yoga than to add calming music in the background? You will come across many playlists. Some will resonate with your style and liking while others will not. Worry not as you will find your song or playlist. You just have to keep looking and experimenting with different genres of music.

Here is a yoga playlist that I have made for you. These songs have been hand-picked carefully by me and everything from the lyrics to the tune of these songs is absolutely apt for yogis who want to let go of themselves and focus on their movement. You can play it while doing yoga solo or you can join me in one of my classes and we might do yoga to one or all of these songs.
