music to birth by

Posted by on Jun 9, 2013 in Music/Playlists, Pre/Post-natal Yoga | Comments Off on music to birth by

Today I had a student ask where I find my music; she said that some of the things that I play in class would be perfect for a birthing playlist.  I mentioned to her that I had put together an extensive playlist for my own son’s birth, and even though I felt disconnected from what was playing when I was deep in the experience, about 6 weeks postpartum I heard one of the chosen tracks played during savasana at a friend’s yoga class and felt overwhelmingly emotional.  What a perfect thing, to have such a mood created with the right music.  I’ve decided to make a list of my more chilled out yoga songs here that I’d include on a mellow birthing playlist.  Feel free to explore and see what works for you!  (Note: these would also be really great savasana songs or would probably work for yin as well!).  To stream a song, search for it on Grooveshark.com.  Purchases available on iTunes.
