When you do yoga you have three choices for music; music with words, instrumental music, and no music. I believe that all three have their time and place. For example, Ashtanga is traditionally done with no music and this is the way I prefer to do this type of yoga. When I am teaching my Vinyasa classes we have a basketball court directly above us (not ideal, I know), so I play instrumental yoga music. I find that music with lyrics doesn’t allow me or my students to concentrate on their body and breath.
That being said, a lot of people like doing yoga with music with lyrics and lucky for those people it is very easy to find playlists for this. Finding playlist for instrumental yoga music is a lot harder! After doing a lot of searching, I gave up and started to make my own. Because I know that I can’t be the only one who wants this type of playlist, I have decided to share it with you! Enjoy!

I love having music without lyrics for my yoga practice. Words can be very distracting. If you liked this playlist, check out my Instrumental Yoga Music Playlist #2 for more relaxing yoga music.
