Yoga is a medicine for your soul, not just for your body. You have not experience the wonder of yoga if you have not had Hozier playing in the background. Some songs just go really well with yoga and it is very easy to forget which song you were listening to that last time that you did yoga. This is why having a playlist comes in handy. You just have to play the playlist and let the music take over you while you do different yoga exercises. Even as a yoga instructor, you will need different playlists for teaching your students.

The thing about yoga is that it works in wonderful ways for everyone. It might be a source of flexibility for you while for someone else, it is a source of mental peace. This is why many people do yoga regularly as they want to maintain their physical and emotional health, both. It is not uncommon for yoga instructors to have different playlists for different classes. Some might have different playlists for each month while others curate playlist based on the exercises they are doing. Whenever you take out your yoga mat, you will need some soothing music in the background that you can lose yourself to.

Effect of Music During Yoga

While in other kinds of exercises, you can synchronise your movements with the beat of music, in yoga, you can actually feel mesmerized by the music. The music should be good for the movements that you are going to do. It should be relaxing and gentle so that you can find yourself in the words and the beat of the music. This is why there are certain songs that are associated with yoga.

Spotify is a good place to find music for yoga. There are thousands of options that you can choose from. You can make your own playlists but there will come a time when you will need some expert’s advice. If you are going to try out new yoga routine, you will need some new songs too. For the faster movements, you will need fast-paced songs while slow-paced songs go well with slow and flexible movements.

Little Dragon Playlist

The Little Dragon Playlist is suitable for beginners and experts. You will surely find a song that you can relate to, during yoga. The whole playlist is on a relaxing note and you can just play it every time that you are doing yoga. There are songs from artists like Boards of Canada, The Knife and Little Dragon. Some of the songs are longer, for exercises where you have to stay in a certain pose for a specific duration. This playlist is pretty awesome for vinyasa yoga, whether you are teaching or doing yoga at home. As a student, you can also suggest this playlist to your yoga instructor so that the whole class can benefit from the relaxing tones of these songs.

There are different kinds of exercises in yoga and it depends on the yoga teacher which exercises they are doing that day. If you are part of a yoga class, your teacher will inform you beforehand which exercises you will be doing that day so that you can come prepared for it. Back bending is a part of yoga and most of the pictures you see of yoga online are of yogis doing backbends.

More about Back Bending

Back bending involves bending the back forward or backward. You would be surprised to see what it can do for your physical and spiritual health. Our spines are strong yet flexible. While bigger bone in the back give us strength and the cartilage provides protection, the joints allow the back to be flexible. So, you can get into any pose and it would increase the strength of your back, if you are doing it right. Back bending is quite effective for physical wellness. Since the activity is invigorating, it helps in stretching the neck and back while keeping your chest flat. If you do these exercises regularly, your legs will gain more strength. It also makes arms and back stronger. Basically, the mobility of your back muscles is increased so the incident of back pain is reduced.

You might not have expected it when you first started doing back bending but it also has energetic benefits for your body. When you feel that you are in danger, your body has a natural reflex to curl up. Since the torso is the most vulnerable part of the body, as this is where the heart lies, our body tries to protect it by curling up. However, when you are doing backbends, you are making your body open. By exposing yourself, you are utilizing your courage. This also helps in giving you more courage and the ability to fight your fears.

Music for Back Bending

There are a lot of things that are important during back bending. You have to make sure that you do not end up injuring your back. This is why you must do back bending under the supervision of a teacher, when you are doing it as a beginner. Over time, you will learn to what extent your body can be flexible. This will prevent any injury. Also, you should do warm-up exercises so that your body does not get physically harmed during yoga.

Secondly, good music is very important. Expert yogis are able to do yoga even in silence and by listening to the sound of nature but when you are starting out, you need some background music. I have made this playlist for back bending lessons. Even if you are doing it at home, you can just play from the very beginning or choose any song to play for your exercise. Some of the songs in the playlist are longer so you can stay in your position for a longer time. I hope you find this playlist helpful.

Blues yoga playlist

Yoga teachers or yoga studios always have an amazing playlist that you can easily do all your yoga moves to. However, when you are doing yoga at home, you end up wondering which music you should play in the background. Some people are okay with doing yoga in silence while others need a beat of the music to which they can sync their yoga movements. A Blues playlist is what you need when you are feeling a little stressed and you need to let it all out. The musical beats will resonate with your feelings and yoga moves.

Background Music for Yoga at Home

When you are doing yoga at home, you do not have to go with the same playlist every day. Sometimes, you are doing yoga as a part of your daily routine while at other times, you are doing it to relieve some stress. The playlist differs based on what purpose you are doing yoga for. An upbeat playlist is for times when you are in the mood and you just want to bust some nice moves to stretch your body and feel active. On the other hand, if you are slightly stressed and you want to relieve the tension, you should go for a more laid-back playlist.

A Blues Playlist for Yoga

The music genre, Blues, originated back in the 1870s. Having its roots in African-American traditions and musical culture, this genre has become popular in the whole world now. This genre does not only have instrumentation but there are also bass lines and lyrics. So, you get the best of everything with such a playlist. Back in the day, the first time of the song was repeated four times. Even though the pattern has changed since then, there is still a lot of repetition. This is really great for yoga since you need to do repeated movements and your body will be able to create a rhythm with the same music being played four to eight times.

This playlist has some amazing songs such as ‘Go with Love’ in which Taylor McFerrin is addressing a lover who does not believe in their love anymore. Then, there is Kojak asking a lover to tell what is on their mind even though it will break the singer’s heart. As you go down the playlist, Aretha Franklin sings for you to get on a train that you do not need a ticket for. It is a song for the Lord’s praise, a song about hope and faith. You will find something to love in every single song.

House Yoga Playlist

House yoga playlist

When you think of a yoga playlist, some soothing, slow songs come to your mind. But it does not always have to be this way. Sometimes, the yoga playlist is quite upbeat and might have some funky songs. The variation in songs is suitable for different kinds of yoga. Commonly, yoga songs are instrumental or are taken from Indian traditional practices. A lot of ethnic music and natural sounds are present in yoga music as they are very easy to synch to. Also, these beats and music patterns are quite steady so you can do repetitive movements.

Whichever music you choose for yoga is your own choice. Depending on which kind of yoga you like to do, you can choose the songs that you like. Some people can easily meditate with sounds of nature or instruments in the background while others need to listen to words in order to center their thoughts in their yoga practice. A faster-paced yoga would require faster songs while yoga done for meditation will require slow, soothing music that sounds relaxing to the ears.

Upbeat Music for Yoga

There is no rule that all yoga music must be somber. It can be upbeat too, depending on which moves you are doing. Some yogis like to do their exercise to fast-paced music. The best part about this kind of yoga is that it allows you to transition from one pose to another. Most of the times, this fast-paced music is contemporary and has tabla beats in it. Also, New Age music is present in such playlists as this music s very vibrant and fills the yogis with energy.

A genre that is normally present in upbeat playlists is House music. It is a genre that is popular with disc jockeys and electronic dance music. It came into being in 1980s and since then, it has become a popular music genre in clubs. House music is a combination of different genres such as pop, rap, jazz and Latin music. Coming from New York, this is a music started by DJs. Nowadays, it is used in different yoga playlists by yogis who like to do fast-paced movements.

There are different genres of music and different people find solace in different sorts of music. Some can resonate well with the instruments while others like to listen to the words. For some, the loud bass might be too much while for others, it is a way to block out the rest of the world. During yoga, you have to concentrate on what you are doing. Your aim is to look inside yourself and to find peace and calmness. The music that you listen to during yoga should not distract you. It should merely provide a pattern or path for you to follow. This is why you might not want to listen to rap during yoga as it does not go with the flow of yoga.

Since it was intertribal, there isn’t a single language in the song. However, it has vocal harmon

y which leaves the listener mesmerized. There is a repeated motif in the song which is why it is perfect for yoga. The women singers sing this repeated motif and you can find a perfect rhythm to the yoga moves in this repetition.
