Ambient Soundtrack for a Slow Flow

Posted by on Oct 11, 2013 in Music/Playlists | Comments Off on Ambient Soundtrack for a Slow Flow

Sometimes I like to practice to music that eases into the background- sets a mood or a tone but stays well out of the spotlight.  Even in an energetic flow class, ambient music can provide the right environment for tuning into the breath, though most would feel that this playlist is best suited for some slower hatha or another kind of slow, deep, mindful practice. You can find all of these tracks on iTunes, and preview them there accordingly.  Some you will find on if you’d like to listen to the whole track before a purchase!   Untitled 2.0 by Auburn...

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...

Music to Move Your Soul

Posted by on Aug 17, 2012 in Music/Playlists | Comments Off on Music to Move Your Soul

If you’re looking for music to accompany a very slow and deep practice that will encourage a mellowing of every cell in your body, look no further than just about any composition by the brilliantly talented British composer Max Richter.  If I am looking to set an introspective mood in class, starting with a Richter piece is a guarantee. May I suggest starting here?

The Buddha Machine

Posted by on Jun 27, 2012 in Music/Playlists | Comments Off on The Buddha Machine

A few years ago my husband purchased this little plastic box from Ebay called the Buddha Machine.  It had a few buttons and a volume wheel and all it did was play loops of meditative sounds indefinitely.  He bought it because it was a neat little instrumental addition to his love for electronic music, I loved it for my time on the mat.  In other words, it was awesome.  Of course it broke in no time, and I had been thinking lately about buying another one.  There is a new version out now with pitch control and new loops, but it’s still a little plastic box.  Then I discovered that...
