Keeping your playlists fresh is challenging for all yoga teachers.

Are my students as sick of these songs as I am?

Luckily, this article is full of yoga songs you can add to your collections.

In this article you will find:

  • Most up to date vinyasa yoga playlist – 2018
  • A modern yoga playlist – 2017
  • My 700+ song mega playlist full of potential yoga songs to choose from

Before you go any further… I know what you’re wondering. Can I trust this random person on the internet’s taste in music…

What kind of music do I like?

I like upbeat music with an earth/eastern tone that you definitely won’t find on the radio. The majority of my playlists are full of vinyasa yoga music because that’s what I normally teach. I prefer instrumental or songs with very little lyrics. This eliminates potential distractions.

Music is my thing

I’ve been teaching yoga since 2013 and spend a lot of time crafting playlists to go with my classes. I keep this article up to date by continually adding my most up to date yoga music playlist for you 🙂

700 Songs for Vinyasa Flow Yoga Music Inspiration…

Here’s a link to my ongoing yoga flow music playlist which I use for inspiration. There’s over 700 songs in here and I’m continually added new songs over time. You will find some popular yoga music but I try not to play “popular” stuff and I hope the vast majority will be new to you.

There is a mix of “modern yoga music” and some more ancient sounding “eastern spirituality” stuff as well. I also included some power yoga music with a little heavier beat. Fe

I’ve made countless yoga music playlists based off this pile of inspiration and hope you can too 🙂

Feel free to dig around and if you like what you hear, you’re welcome to “follow” the playlist on spotify if that’s your jam.

Tips for making a good yoga playlist

  • Overlap / crossfade songs by 5-10 seconds to make the mix seamless (easy to do on both soundcloud and spotify)
  • Make sure the songs match your sequence (gentle songs during the warm-up, etc)
  • Make sure the playlist is longer than 60mins if you allow extended Savasana
  • DOWNLOAD your playlist before class… don’t want any WIFI issues during class
  • Vinyasa flow music benefits from fewer words (less distracting)
  • Try to pick songs that aren’t as well known… again to minimize distraction
  • Practice teach with your playlist on. You’ll pick up subtle cues in the music to guide your teaching, know when to transition, keep time, etc.
  • The best vinyasa music keeps a steady beat/flow and has very few lyrics

Let’s Wrap Up…

Did you find what you were looking for? Aka the best yoga songs ever? lol.

Joking aside I sincerely hope this article helps you with your yoga playlists! Check back every so often as I continually add new music 🙂
