Self-practice can be challenging. You might step onto the mat and think What poses should I do? In what order? For how long? Where do I even begin? This is where a good playlist can come in handy. Cue up a good progression of music, and your body might just find itself moving of its own accord.
Keep reading to see a few groovy playlists to inspire movement on the mat.
1. “Yoga Playlist of the Month” - Breath and Flow
As implied by its title, this playlist is remixed on a monthly basis by its husband and wife curators: Flo & Bre Neidhammer. These well-known traveling yoga teachers are also music enthusiasts, and know how to organize a groovy and fun playlist for yoga practice.
Length: 60 min
Best suited for: Vinyasa / flow classes
2. “Playful” - Brooke
Another helpfully-titled playlist, this compilation of songs combines some traditional yoga beats with some vibey remixes. This playlist follows a clear arc - intensifying throughout the middle portion and slowing at the end - which serves as a wonderful cue to your body / mind to follow suit as you flow along.
Length: 1 hour, 21 min
Best suited for: Vinyasa / flow / power classes
3. “Yoga Workout: Relaxing Instrumental Grooves and Moods” - Astrowanderer00
If you’re looking for a more mellow playlist to accompany gentler movements, then consider checking this playlist out. This series of songs creates a tranquil, spa-like atmosphere conducive to a relaxing practice.
Length: 3hr 17min
Best suited for: Yin / restorative / meditation classes
4. “Handpan / Hang ~ Soothing, Relaxing, Calming” - Jate
Another gentler playlist, this collection of music revolves around the specific instrumentals of handpans / hang drums. This playlist therefore provides a steady mellow vibe that could serve as a great soundtrack to gentler movement or even seated meditation.
Length: 8hr 1min
Best suited for: Meditation / yin / restorative
…finding some good music can be a great starting point for having a fruitful practice. I hope these playlists serve as a good starting point in that process.
