Do you think music goes well with yoga or would you rather practice postures to the rhythm of your breath? If you like the combo, what artists, songs, etc do you like?

Creating a mixed tape (i.e., mp3, for you youngsters) is such a joyful process for me.

When I first began contemplating becoming a yoga teacher, one of the first thing's I did to prepare was create the ultimate, yoga mixed tape because I felt it was that important to the mood and ambience of my students' practice. And you know what, I received TONS of compliments on it! (Hint: lots of Sacred Well.)

So I was very excited when Universal Music Group contacted me to giveaway three of Yanni's latest CDs, Yanni Voices. Honestly, I was never a Yanni fan and was worried I wouldn't like it. Yet, I thought it was quite lovely, especially with the variety of voices (operatic to Sarah Mclachlan like) and styles.

Lots of tracks work well as a backdrop to practicing yoga postures, including all of the instrumental and some of the "voices" songs such as track #5, Before the Night Ends. Even made a new yoga mix for my class with five songs from Yanni Voices, which surprises me because I wasn’t expecting to resonate with it so much. He's currently in tour with four singers who contributed to the the 17-track album (now I'm really dating myself!).

So make sure to comment to win a free CD. It's that easy.

I think yoga with some soft music will be a great idea. it soothes the mind a lot and relieves stress.

I love doing yoga to music, soft, flowing music. The kind that blends well with burning incense. The kind that helps you hold long slow poses and long deep breaths.

Hi, it's Angie D. I like to practice yoga with music more than just with my breath. I actually like music with words too, more so than instrumentals.

I'd say Yoga with music is good, but it has to be -hopefully- instrumental music, because the whole idea is just to give some kind of ambient. On the other hand, yoga without music helps you to improve concentration.
