Which Music for Yoga?

Music is the language of angels.” – Thomas Carlyle

Today is International Day of Yoga and World Music Day.

As an academy offering courses in the field of Sound & Music and an institute which conducts Yoga / Meditation sessions for our students, the 2 International Day of celebrations has got equal importance for us.

The purpose of yoga is to calm the fluctuations of the mind and hand-picked music can play a pivotal role to serve the purpose.  On the contrary features of loud pop music violates the principle of yoga.

Music selection for yoga practice is purely a personal choice and if you have decided to play music in yoga classes, you need time, creativity, and knowledge of the relationships between sound and body to make the right choice.

As Music is deeply correlated with Yoga to support the Yogic flow or the (emotional) impact of the asanas, today we are sharing some tips to consider while choosing music for your yoga practice.

Even our own body is constantly in motion and in a rhythm, even if we sit still. The heart beats, the blood flows and the breath flows in and out.

Studies have found that relaxation music should meet the following criteria:

a. It should sound harmonious and even.
b. The instruments or voices used should have as little emphasis and pitch as possible.
c. The beat should be in line with that of the relaxed human pulse, it can slow down the heartbeat and respiration, tense muscles can come loose and the brain and nervous system can also calm down.

Team Sound Engineering Academy wishes a Great International Day of Yoga and World Music Day to All.

Happy Sound Engineering.
