Hi everyone. I was wondering, should you have an even melody of music while teaching yoga? Im always concerned that the class may be interrupted by a student needing more attention (which is perfectly fine) but it would interrupt the flow of music if we are doing certain movements that are cordinated with that beat. To me it would be best to just have a mello consistant beat but im not sure. Please advise and also if you can, recomend an artist for me so i may purchase some of that kind of music for yoga classes. Also, do you think it ok to not have any music at all.

Thanks a lot,

Traci

I have been using pieces by Matthew C. Shuman in my Yoga group for the past couple months now. They fit my routines nearly perfectly and my class members consistently compliment my song selection. Comparable to Jim Brickman although there is something more fitting about them. I downloaded his CDs from Amazon and iTunes, looks like there are hard copies available through his website.

Curious, is most of his work solo piano? I listened to Victory, which would be good for an active flow, but not for meditation.

I have a nice cd called spirit spa and it is native american music and its great. Sometimes the drums are like heartbeats which I love. I also like Reiki cds. I think just nice low, even tempo music on a loop is great.

Love Reiki music for Yoga classes. Speaking of Native American music Coyote Old Man works quite well. I'm curious Matthew or mkkitt: was that a hit and run post for your (Matt Shuman's) back linking strategy? Because eartheart had a good point.
