Crafting a playlist for your yoga class requires thought and careful consideration. As a yoga teacher, finding music that you love, but that also fits perfectly with your classes can be a challenge. With this guide and these playlists, you can easily create a playlist that fits your yoga style! Whether you teach an upbeat Vinyasa class or a restful Restorative class, there is a playlist for everyone.
Once you develop your own style of teaching, students who appreciate your "brand" of yoga will find you. And generally, they'll agree with your music choice because it's an extension of your personality and, if planned well, fits seamlessly into the class.
Interested in building a playlist that will flow with your class without being distracting or misplaced? Here are some basic guidelines to follow:
Don’t go crazy and make huge jumps in style, volume, or mood; ease into your selections. Just like your class builds to a peak pose, your music should also build.
Yoga can be anything from athletic to relaxing, but there are some types of music that don’t have a place in your class—no matter your yoga personality.
Don’t choose songs because you think your students want to hear them. If you pick music that speaks to you, your playlist will feel more genuine.
Just like you wouldn’t teach the same sequence week after week, you shouldn’t play the same songs over and over again.

Just because other teachers are playing music in their classes doesn’t mean you have to. If you’re unsure about what to play, you may be better off avoiding music, as it could end up making you feel uncomfortable and become a distraction to both you and your students.

Yoga and music are long time friends. The practice of singing kirtan, call and response chanting, is spoken about in the Bhagavad Gita and renowned throughout centuries as a devotional practice. Yoga is a sacred method of uniting the body, mind, and spirit, and this union can be aided through music. When humans connect with rhythm, it is transformational. Music can transcend conversation, transcend you body, and ultimately transcend your state of being.
