Best Yoga Tracks of All Time
Don’t Hold Your Breath by Wookiefoot
A fun and free eclectic tune that taps into your breath from the start. Play during a warmup to begin linking breath to movement.
Jubel by Klingdale
This upbeat favorite fits well with the body of an all levels or power yoga practice. I first heard it at Wanderlust Festival, and it’s been one of my top go-to yoga songs ever since.
The Mountain by Trevor Hall
Pretty much every Trevor Hall song is yoga worthy, but this one stands out above the rest. The Mountain is an uplifting song that will motivate you to take your practice to the next level.
Gayatri Mantra by Deva Premal
This beautiful song by Deva Premal will put you at ease from the moment it starts. Play it at the beginning or towards the end of your practice.
Shanti (Peace Out) by MC YOGI
Fade into the most transcendent savasana of your life when you release your mind with this soothing song softly playing in the background of your consciousness.
For What It’s Worth (India Dub) by DJ Drez
A creative combination of classic rock and yogic tunes, you’ll feel energized and ready to move from the moment this song comes on.
Budding Trees by Nahko and Medicine for the People
Like Trevor Hall, there are so many Nahko songs that relate to yoga. Budding Trees is one that will make you feel happy, energized and free.
Breathe by Stick Figure
The best yoga tracks are the ones that remind you to breathe, and this Stick Figure song does just that. Plus, it’s fun and flowy, just like your practice.
Between by Satsang
This insightful song transcends the yogi mindset. Satsang sings all about balance, and his lovely lyrics will empower you to find balance on and off your mat.
Rena Jones – Deeper (Dr. Toast Remix) by Dr. Toast
Slip into transcendence with this all-instrumental track. Place it at the beginning or the tail-end of your practice to get centered and realign with only the highest vibrations.
Baba Hanuman by Krishna Das
Like Deva Premal’s Gayatri Mantra, this song is one of the more traditional yoga tracks. Baba Hanuman intertwines a number of mantras to pay tribute to various Hindu deities. From the moment you hear it, you will feel relaxed and ready for your practice.
Everything is Music by Tubby Love
Because isn’t everything music, after all? This track will make you want to get up and dance (if you do, that’s okay!) and flow even freer through your vinyasas.
Mana by Dirty Heads
This unique mantra-like song will make you want to move. Place it in the body of your practice when you’re in your most empowering poses.
Amber by 311
This slow-paced song is the perfect transition into the cool down portion of your practice. And the lyrics, “amber is the color of your energy,” just seem so relatable to yoga.
Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole
Set the tone for savasana by playing everybody’s favorite right before you take your favorite, final resting pose.
Aqueous Transmission by Incubus
The ultimate savasana song, Aqueous Transmission incorporates Chinese and Japanese instruments to put your mind at rest. The lyrics insight immediate relaxation, and the song ends with a few minutes of instrumental followed by the peaceful chirping of crickets. This is unlike any other Incubus song you’ve ever heard!
