As a teacher, one of the most challenging aspects of planning a yoga class is finding good music to play.
You don’t want anything too distracting, or that sounds weird, is too high pitched, or not really the same “style” as your students. In my own searches for the perfect playlist, so much of the yoga music out there is a little too spa-like for a strong flow.
Finding music that’s relaxing without being corny, but builds when you need a little extra inspiration to power through those planks, is a fine and time-consuming art, which is why I’m sharing my personal favorites with you!
Here’s my go-to playlist for a fun, strong practice:
