Yoga background music


#1

I’m looking for some generic yoga music to listen to during my morning routine. I have a really hard time relaxing my mind in the mornings, and feel pretty sure that a bit of music would help.

If anyone have any links to any good bits, would you please share them with me?

Thanks in advance.

I have Kevin Kern music during my evening practice lately. Simple, but quiet and very beautiful.
Sometimes, Paul Mauriat (especially now: it`s an autumn music).
Vivaldi suits well.
No links, unfortunately.


#3

where can we find such music?


#4

I found it on grooveshark.com


#5

Nice one, Tangle.
You may also try to search it in torrents.


#6

Jonathan Goldman has many good CD’s out dealing with sound. My favorite is called Peaceful Journey.

You can try that:

Some quick google searches brought up these (for the one asking where to find such music):

I believe in compensating people for their time, effort, energy and talent. Otherwise, how would we encourage them to continue providing us with beautiful music? So I don’t download music without compensating the artist. :slight_smile:

I like anything which makes me feel happy with life. Colin Hay and Jeremy Kay are great for this.


#12

For soothing and relaxing, I like Rasa, Deva Premal, Anugama, Dean Evenson, Chinmaya Dunster, SoulFood.

Sometimes for an invigorating practice I like Beats Antique, Baka Beyond, Afro Celt Sound System, Thievery Corporation, Shaman’s Dream

For a mix that is already suited for a yoga practice, starts off slow, builds in intensity, then a relaxing close, any Shiva Rea Compilation, or other yoga compilation are nice. Tandava has two that are good.


#13

I love Deva Premal and also Dean Evenson


#14

If I’m relaxing its Pink Floyd, Bob Marley, etc.

If I’m going for power its metal or really up beat rap. Sometimes its even country music. LOL


#15

Classical music all the way. Vivaldi, Bach, Beethoven, etc. This song is also very relaxing and beautiful.


#16

After hearing the Four Seasons a million times, I don’t want to hear it at yoga class.

As much as I like classical music, I can’t think of much that I would want as yoga music. I actually would prefer the new-age stuff they use, but could go for some Gregorian Chant.


#17

If you haven’t, please try this:

As you slowly inhale, sing/listen silently - do re mi fa so la ti (with respective frequencies) respectively locating each sound at muladhara, swadhisthana, manipura, anahat, vishuddhi, ajna and sahasrara chakras.

Then exhale, singing/listening in reverse order.

It is great music.

I have also recently found MagnaTune. Googling them is easy. They offer subscriptions, the most expensive of which is $15 a month for unlimited downloads (no restrictions) on their 10,000 albums. They have many in the New Age, World, and Ambient genres that I find are appropriate for yoga. You could get a subscription for just a few months (3 is their minimum) and download all you could ever need!

I’m really enjoying them as of late. :slight_smile:

There is a musician here in Victoria, BC whose music is incredibly beautiful. He plays the flute - and in many of his songs he plays a bass flute, which has an amazing, deep vibration that hits you on a deep level. I play his music a lot during my yoga classes and when I give thai massage.

His name is Scott Sheerin. Check out his bandcamp page:

He’s also a really great guy - very spiritually minded.
