As a Yoga instructor, it is important to me to select soothing and relaxing yoga music to
accompany my routines. Background music during a Yoga session should not be overwhelming, rather,
it should be mode enhancing and should coincide with the particilar poses and routines. It is
difficult to find a single CD that meets this criteria.
If the music is too slow and soft it is difficult to get motivated to hold those
yoga warrior and chair poses. If the music is too energetic, it is challenging to
unwind and relax. Again, it is all about balance. These are my all time favorite
CDs that are both relaxing and uplifting at the same time. There are links for
each CD, if you would like to purchase them directly on-line.
Title: Lifescapes: Pure Relaxation -
Escape, Unwind, Reflect
This CD is the hidden gem of all relaxing yoga CDs. All my
students love the fourth song "Enchanted Forest"as a deep relaxation song. The
moment this song starts playing you can't help but take a big sigh and enjoy that
totally content and blissful feeling that comes with total
This has been one of my favorite yoga CDs for the last two years.
From the first song you just know it is a great CD. Even the CD graphics look very
Zen. This CD makes the perfect gift for your yoga enthusiast friend. The CD is very
relaxing and is one of the best for energizing you during and after your yoga
CD Title: Spa Music:
Relax & Rejuvenate
This CD set is not only relaxing but a great bargain. You
basically get 2 CDs for the price of one. Disc one is called "Massage"
and disc two is called "Balance" and they are both perfect for yoga practice. To me
a good yoga practice makes you feel more balanced and relaxed like you just had a
massage so the disc names are symbolic.
CD Title: Spa
[SOUNDTRACK] by Roger St. Denis
This one is
the most soothing of my favorite CDs for yoga practice and I usually play it when I
am stressed and/or tired. The subtitle is relax-indulge-daydream. It is very
relaxing but instead of making my mind wander it actually helps me feel more
centered and focused.
