I spend quite a bit of time crafting the playlists that I use in my yoga classes because I think that a good yoga playlist can really take the class to the next level. Don’t get me wrong, I still love practising to only the tune of my own breath, especially when practising out in nature. But there’s something about a well crafted yoga playlist that really helps you get into almost a trance. The music guides you, centres you, keeps you going and flowing. It can be absolute magic.
In my opinion, a yoga playlist needs to have a certain structure, a certain flow. Starting off slow and then perhaps picking up the pace a little bit towards the middle but then easing off again towards the end and then obviously finishing it off with a kickass Savasana song. Of course the playlist structure will also depend on the type of class, e.g. I wouldn’t use one of my upbeat Vinyasa Flow yoga playlists when teaching a Restorative Yoga class, but overall I like to create almost a curve in all my playlists.
Anyway, I figured I should spread some of that yoga music love and start sharing my yoga playlists on here! Starting off with this lovely soothing cosy yoga playlist, perfect for a more calming practice, such as a soothing slow flow or a nurturing restorative session.
This is actually one of my fave yoga playlists that I’ve put together, I think it’s super versatile and somehow it always makes my mat time complete magic. Let me know what you think in the comments below!
Until next time! Sx
