I’m also aware that not all students will enjoy my music, or having music at all, and that’s fine. As a yoga teacher, it’s impossible to please everyone – but if you’re not authentic and don’t teach yoga in the same way that you live and breathe it yourself, you probably won’t please many people at all.
So without further ado, in no particular order, here are 10 artists that are on high rotation during my yoga classes and my own practice, with a couple of my fave songs from each of them.
Michael Franti & Spearhead
This man radiates so much love, I could list loads of his songs! Check out:
The Sound of Sunshine Going Down
All My Days
James Vincent McMorrow
Enter One (my favourite Savasana track ever!)
Keep Your Head Up
Benjamin Francis Leftwich
Follow The Sun
Iron & Wine
Naked As We Came
Love and Some Verses
(Why are there so many Bens on my list??)
And in addition to my top 10 yoga artists, here are a few extra songs that I think deserve a special mention:
Let’s Be Still, by The Head and the Heart
Live Your Life, by Yuna
Society, by Eddie Vedder
Breathe In Breathe Out, by Mat Kearney
So Much Magnificence, by Steve Gold
Are there others you think deserve to be on the list? I’d love to hear about them!
