Music in a yoga class can be either empowering or annoying. It's impossible to make everyone happy. Since I love music in yoga classes, I play it in mine. Right now I'm trying to find tunes that will inspire and empower but not overwhelm. Very, very open to suggestions!
Gayarti by Wah!
The Storm by Arovane
My Angel Rocks Back and Forth by Four Tet
(by now in the class we are in Sun Salutes, to give you an idea of movement)
Ooh Child by ? Zen Muffin put it on a CD for me, don't know the artist.
Teardrop by Massive Attack
Give a Little Love by Rilo Kiley
Viva La Vida by Coldplay (not my fave, but around this time we're doing core strengthening, and ppl really seem to love this one)
Three Little Birds by Bob Marley
You Are Never Alone by Socalled
By Your Side by Sade
Corrina, Corrina by Bob Dylan
Orange Sky by Alexi Murdoch

Treble Thickness by Area C (ambient savasana music)
Just got a slew of new music from the manfriend, and am hoping to incorporate some new tunes this week while I have time. My classes are usually 90 mins, although I do have one hour long on Wednesday nights. Any new ideas? Pop stuff is okay, but I'm looking for more unheard stuff--nothing that will make ppl want to sing along, or make them feel like they're at the disco.
Heard this song off of Ben's iTunes the other night, and have been listening to it over and over again since. It's definitely going on the new playlist.
