What music do you practice yoga to?

If you use music in your practice what do you tend to listen to?

Just interested as I listen to all varieties of music when practising. May sound strange to some but John Lee Hooker is great to pratice to! (guess you may have to be a fan first though - who knows!)

I like to listen to nice world music, usually without words. If there are words I like them to be chants.

If I listen to music during my home practice, I have a "spiritual" playlist on my ipod that has a pretty diverse mix. I have the ipod shuffle the playlist so that the universe delivers what I need to listen to. On the playlist is a mix including:

- Various chants by Deva Premal and Mitten

- Enya

- Bob Marley

- HEM

- Israel Kamakawiwo'ole

- Krishna Das

- Sarah McLachlan

- Snatam Kaur

- The National

i have been using steven halperns chakra suite

it works!

at the end of class i am full of light and very balanced, and wonder what the students experience, if they see and feel ?

i started today with the crown chakra track on, should have gone from the beginning upward, it was very transpersonal

One of the yoga instructors I take from usually has David Newman (Durga Das) playing lightly in the background. I find the music to be very relaxing

I usually go without, but occasionally use a CD that mixes light instrumentals with recorded storm sounds (thunder and rain.)

90% of the time I like the sounds of the birds in my garden around me. The odd occasion when I do play music I like:

Slow music for Yoga by Hearts of Space

Inde du Nord by Pandit Ravi Shankar

The Spirit of Yoga by Ben Leinbach

Lately I really enjoy Wade Imre Morissettes' music , in particular his latest CD "maha moha. I also like the August Rush soundtrack , which adds to the magic of my daily practice.

aztec yoga - that's cool that you listen to John Lee when practicing, It would make me want to drink whiskey or something. Good for you!

David - I have tried to like the National, and disagree with Paste magazine - after several listens of Boxer I decided it was not album of the year, not even close. That band makes me feel nothing at all, am I missing something?

Don't feel bad if you disagree, I wrote a review on the album last year, and got bashed by many people that loved it.

I am getting so many great suggestions from all of you, thank you so much !!!

I wonder if anyone has tried to practice while listening to death metal or hard core rap? Might be an interesting practice of finding peace in the middle of the storm. Dharana and SLAYER; I think I'll do that tonight while I practice lol! It should be interesting at least !

slayer is cool but not to make yoga lool

hey i also listen metal ...but that is not a excuse to make yoga listening metal lool

I did actually go through with my Yoga Metal Music Jam session . Lets just say that I've had better practices in the past, but it was honestly no more disruptive to my yoga than my mind can be. It was an interesting practice and I might try it again sometime or perhaps not but I am glad that I did it. I feel that my own mind creates enough turmoil to sift and focus through and I honestly don't need to add anymore.

I listen to Mexican music. It is not joking. I really love it: Cielito Lindo, Cocorico, La bamba, Paloma, Besame Mucho etc.
