Playing music while you do yoga greatly depends upon the kind of yoga you do. Generally speaking, the more traditional yoga practices like Ashtanga and Iyengar do not have music playing in class because the focus of the practice is to offer no other distractions, like music, to your breath and asanas (postures). But newer forms of yoga like power yoga or other hybrid-styles have soft yogic music playing in the background.
Whether you're in a yoga class or just simply want to unwind and relax, yoga-inspired music is a calming alternative to your usual Sade or favorite piano concerto. Here is beautiful Yoga-Meditation Music that will leave you feeling calm and restored. And who couldn't use a few moments of peace during this holiday season?
