Switching Up Your Yoga Playlist

Regardless of whether I’m doing cardio or yoga, I prefer to do them while listening to music.

 New-age music (peaceful and inspiring) is typically what you expect when thinking of music associated with yoga. It's calming, relaxing and wonderful for helping to keep your mind clear while you're practicing yoga. But, do you ever want something a little… different? 

 EDM (Electronic Dance Music) and Alternative music might seem like odd choices for yoga, but both are my preferred genres- I’m constantly on the look out for new EDM and Alt songs that will enhance my yoga practice.

 Listening to an amazing song alone can be a spiritual journey, but combined with yoga can be an incredible experience. Don't be afraid to go outside the comfort zone of New Age by mixing up your yoga playlists with unexpected songs. 

 Here are 15 of my favorite songs to practice yoga to:

 1) Noosa –Walk On By. I prefer the Sound Remedy Remix, but the original is great too

 2) Baths- Aminals 

 3) Anything by Alt-J – My recommendations would be Ms and Taro 

 4) Seven Lions- Velvetine -The Great Divide (Seven Lions Remix) 

 5) Niykee Heaton – Bad Intentions 

 6) CMA Music- Don't Look Back 

 7) Blackmill- Let It Be, Miracle, Evil Beauty

 8) Zoe Durrant- Need To Feel Loved 

 9) M83 – We Own The Sky 

 10) Blackbear, G-Eazy – 90210 

 11) Adventure Club- Gold

 12) Fleet Foxes – Mykonos

 13) Iketa- Bird 

 14) Metric – Help I’m Alive 

 15) Halsey – Hurricane
