Yoga is a holistic set of practices that originated from ancient Asia Andover time it has branched out into the various styles and forms of yoga that are practiced all over the world today. The focus of yoga is usually harmony and alignment of the mind, body and spirit. Meditation is an intrinsic element within holistic yoga practice; meditation music that is composed for yoga can assist with focus, flow and curating an environment or energy space to enter into a deeply beneficial practice. Within this article, we shall look into some of the benefits of including music within your practice; specifically yoga or meditation music. We shall also learn more about the royalty-free music tracks offered by Music Of Wisdom.
Benefits of utilizing royalty-free yoga music
The use of music within yoga practice has a variety of viewpoints, some of the traditional schools of thought prefer the practice to be in silence or with traditional Sanskrit chants (chants or mantras also make use of the powerful vibrational effects of sound). Since there are now so many variations and styles of yoga that are practiced the use of music can be left up to personal preference. Many contemporary yoga teachers and students enjoy yoga music within their practice as music can be utilized to enhance their experience in various ways.
Royalty-free yoga music can be used within your practice; it can be used with intention within your in-person studio classes or online classes and you can also use yoga music within your personal yoga practice.
You can choose to play royalty-free yoga music throughout your class as background music or as an introduction before and at the start of class to set the tone. You can also utilize yoga music towards the end of class during shavasana, intentional relaxation, yogic breathwork or meditation.
These are some of the ways that including intentionally composed royalty-free yoga music can benefit your practice:
Focusing the mind
Listening to intentionally composed music can help to bring yoga students into the present moment; music can assist with focus as it has a direct impact on our brainwave states. Listening to music can help students to be more present and so they will take in more benefits from their experience of the yoga class.
Getting into a flow state
Yoga music can help you to easily enter into a flow state; this is linked to the point above about how music can help us to focus, but a flow state is also beyond just focus. It can be understood as a state of mind, body and soul harmony; where you are immersed in the present activity and your emotions and energy are high, clear and vibrant.
The sound of music creates vibrations that directly affect our mind, body and energy. Listening to music with an intentional frequency (the number of vibrations per second) can have specific effects; yoga music can be utilized to align with meditative, relaxing and expansive frequencies.
A sensory experience
Yoga music can offer added sensory experience by engaging the yoga students' sense of listening. An experience that engages the senses is usually more memorable and enjoyable. Honoring, activating and working with the body is a key part of yoga practice and engaging the senses through music can be a form of mindfulness that deepens physical awareness, presence and gratitude.
