Whether you're targeting your core at a sweat-heavy hot yoga session or chilling out in corpse pose for a calming restorative class, freeing up your body in yoga is all about getting into the moment. To start the energy flowing in your limbs, unclog your chakras, and tune out weekday worries, ease into your yoga session with the croons of Bon Iver and Sufjan Stevens or the mid-tempo beats of Sylvan Esso: it's the sonic equivalent of a soothing cup of tea. Soak it in and ohmmm it out.
