Justin Michael Williams: The new Radiance Sutras album - Dave Stringer & Donna De Lory
Elena Brower: Been listening to a lot of very different music lately. We love listening to classical piano (my son is getting really into composing now). For practice, I love listening to Tasha Blank's SoundCloud mixes for our monthly #DeepHouseYoga classes at Verboten. Above+Beyond's work makes me swoon too; they did a stellar yoga mix for a class I taught at Burning Man with them that still slays me.
Leslie Kaminoff: Anything by Toshi Reagon for sure.
Kathryn Budig: Nothing new, but I love Bleeding Out by Imagine Dragons when I want to add music to my home practice.
Megan Huylo: I've been listening to a lot of classical lately, mostly Chopin.
Rina Jacubowicz: Wow! One song or artist? There's so many, but I will say that I have been jamming to Dj Drez's SoundCloud mix called MUSIC. It's an hour and 15 minutes of head-bobbing awesomeness. hehe! :)
Bo Forbes: I don't play music while I practice, but before and after I'm loving Don't Give Up, the version by Pink and John Legend.
Karen E. Mozes: I actually love any and all live music, and typically prefer that or a silent practice
Amy Ippoliti: I actually love any and all live music, and typically prefer that or a silent practice.
Marina DeLaTorre: I’ve always liked Wah! So despite the hit of the moment, I always go back to my Wah! playlist
Coby Kozlowski: It seems as though every playlist I’ve been creating lately includes Sombience by Earth Rise Sound System.
Tazdeen Rashid: I’m really digging Blank & Jones Ambient Mix album, it's sultry in many ways.
Dana Flynn: Never say Never, Basement Jaxx
Larissa Hall Carlson: Honestly, I almost always do my morning yoga practice in silence. Nothing beats the pre-dawn sounds of nature waking--chipmunks rustling in the leaves and cardinals chirping in the backyard.
Amanbir Singh: My favorite yoga jam at the moment is My Saving Grace by Gurunam
Gail Grossman: It’s not a yoga jam perse, but the words are amazing, and fit so well with a yoga class, It’s Catch and Release by Matt Simons.
Tiffany Cruikshank: Right now I’m loving Lost on the River #20 by The New Basement Tapes
Beryl Bender Birch: Don’t listen to music with asana, pranayama, or meditation – but love music (my favorites at the moment are downloads from The Voice)
Sri Dharma Mittra: The Pachelbel Canon in D Major played by any good orchestra.
Aadil Palkhivala: Since I turn my attention inward completely when I do my practice, external music is a distraction for me, at my level of practice. I never listen to music while practicing. Sometimes, some students find it useful to have soft music playing in the background. This seems to relax their body. If that is the case, then please listen to music. For me, I love listening to music but only when I am not doing anything else.
