In the yoa classes I teach at UP I love to play a good, upbeat playlist. Recently, some of the students asked me to share my music with htem, so I made this grooveshark playlist…enjoy:
With music, a flowing, power vinyasa style class can become a fuller, more invigorated practice. Yoga (yoke/union) links body and mind, breath and movement, and music adds another component: the beat of a song with the yogi’s heartbeat, the rhythm of a melody with the sequence of postures. Here is a playlist inspired by vinyasa to inspire your own practice. It includes modern music, beginning with crescedoing songs to warm up, transitions into powerful music for the flow, and ending with more relaxing songs to wind down to Savasana.
