Music is a useful tool for teaching yoga classes. Sometimes it drowns out the city noise that comes from the streets. The noise of people, sirens, cars, animals, horns, buses, and jets can take away the student's mind during a lesson. So, I do not propose that music is bad, but have you ever tried a class without music.
We tried this on the weekend, in the early morning, when all of the city traffic is very light. Most people wanted to stay in bed, but those who came got to experience Surya Namaskar for the beginning of the day and a mind-set which had rythm without a yoga music DVD in the background.
Sometimes it is good if a yoga teacher or students bring in musical instruments. Some teachers can also sing very well. These are fresh ideas for those yoga teachers who can play music, or for the teachers who have musically inclined students.
I was a guest in a yoga class with a 10 year old student who could play classical guitar like a master. This girl is a child prodigy and a disciplined yogini. This I bring up, because there are no limits to what you can do to make a nice atmosphere in your ashram.
