The Role of Music in Yoga Classes

While Yoga might just be a routine activity for some people, others use Yoga to connect with their inner selves and free their minds of the problems they are facing. According to Patanjali, who was one of the founding fathers of this practice, Yoga is the name of ‘stilling the mind.’ In Yoga, you still your mind and mental stillness take you away from any kind of distraction or judgment that you face in your daily life.

Music for Mental Stillness in Yoga

Some people might associate mental stillness with silence, but this does not always have to be the case. Your mind can be still and focused when without any silence. You just have to listen to the right kind of music as it will put you in a trance that will allow you to enjoy Yoga and connect with your spirit. If you are just starting out, you might find it confusing to sit silently doing yoga exercises without anything to synchronize them to. With music, this awkwardness is removed as you can connect with your mind and body. This physical and mental flow definitely helps you do much better.

Of course, this differs from person to person. Some people might like to play music in the background while others might be distracted by the same music. If you feel that the music you are playing is bringing back memories that you do not want to think about, then you can simply mute. However, for most people, music provides a rhythm that they can move to while doing Yoga. It also depends on the kind of Yoga you are doing. For example, for Hatha, you would need a static kind of music playlist as it foes with the Yoga poses.

We’ve teamed up with some amazing producers and musicians to create unique mixes for some of the classes.

Turn up the volume to hear the musical accompaniment for each of these classes!

Getting into the Flow

Science has been working on finding out how music affects our body and mind. According to most studies, music plays a role in improving your mood and enhancing physical performance. If there are so many benefits, then why not have a playlist playing in the background when you are doing Yoga or teaching your students. Having some music in the background can make Yoga much more fun, especially if you are doing it with a group of people. Curating a yoga playlist is not like curating one for a road trip or a party. You have to play the right songs that will take you out of your fatigue and bring you to a world when you can flow with the words. This playlist will surely help you get into this world. The softer tones in these songs will help you get into a rhythm and go with the flow.
