Yoga Music Playlist

August 11, 2011

Making a play list for class is one of a yoga teacher’s challenges as well as a joy. I usually make a new playlist about every couple of weeks. This is not to say that I play the same list for 2 weeks. I have many on hand I switch out depending on my mood.

The key to a good play list to set the beat to the music to somewhat coordinate with the time of the class and the intensity of the practice at that moment. I usually let my mood determine the “theme” of the list. This latest list is entitled “The Boyfriend Mix.” It’s a little mix of songs that are by singers who I call “my boyfriend”, songs that are memories from old boyfriends, or songs that put one in the mind if love, or husband or “boyfriend.”  Most are from the 90’s. and there are a few bits of “yoga music” thrown in. 90 minutes.
