got this question in the mail…

Hi! I was wondering if you could possibly recommend music for a practice. I have been using the same music for awhile and would love a change but I don’t have a clue how to go about finding good music!

my response…

first of all… playlist playlist playlist

i have NEVER found a yoga cd that i’d play straight through a class all the way in the same order.

because i teach vinyasa flow classes, i adjust the playlist to complement building of the sequence toward a crescendo and then following it into a cool-down and final meditation.

For meditative centering and savasana:
John Hughes & Anuvida & Nik Tyndall

John Hughes - Kora Sutra Reiki Healing Hands

for the build i usually like to get a little ethnic and funky these
Ravi Shankar & Thievery Corporation

(almost anything by thievery is awesome for practice!)

Chants of India - Ravi Shankar & George Harrison Richest Man Babylon -vThievery Corporation

and to mix it up, depending on how i feel maybe some…
Erykah Badu or 4Hero

4Hero - Two Pages

and then there are the devotional jams i like to play which require their own special post. so stay tuned.

hope this helps,
tazima!
