When was the last time you paused in your downward dog and actually listened to the music at your neighborhood yoga studio? Maybe never the best yoga playlists, after all, are made to soothe, drown out distractions, and hum along pleasantly in the background. But Rara Avis, Craig Kohland, and Amani Friend so enjoyed the down-tempo, internationally inspired notes behind the best yoga music that they founded Yogi Tunes, a site dedicated entirely to yoga music. The site launches in January and boasts an expanding collection of playlists created by top instructors.
Yoga music enhances the flow of the practice, giving it pace, rhythm, and structure, said Davis, cofounder of Yogi Tunes, adding that the site will have thousands of songs specially selected to help you practice your favorite yoga poses for hours of Zen without distractions.So slow down and check out their playlist designed exclusively for Marie Claire by Yogi Tunes for an escape from the week. These 10 tunes will unify body and mind for beginners and masters alike. Although we cant guarantee nirvana, every pose is a journey, so let these global melodies whisk you away.
