    Yoga is a practice that combines both physical movements Yoga Quest with meditative practices. The use of music for yoga helps to improve mental focus during meditation and reflection, as well as provide a tempo that can be followed to undertake free and flowing physical movement through the various yoga positions.

    While practicing yoga, the body and mind are focussed on meditation and deep breathing for relaxation. Different yoga practices have different focuses. A meditative yoga session may use meditative music to help improve the ability to meditate while doing yoga. Listening to music can help to achieve a number of different meditative states, depending upon what the individual is focussing upon. The use of music also helps to give a tempo and pace at which to progress through the different positions held during the yoga session.

    Music can help to focus the mind, so that the meditative state is achieved more readily. Outside distractions that can prevent you from entering a deeper meditative state are removed when using music. This yoga music then helps facilitate the connection between the mind and body so that the individual is able to achieve a deeper level of reflection whilst doing the yoga and meditation.

    There are a number of different types of yoga that you can get involved in - and in turn there are a number of different music options that are suited to different yoga and meditation styles. If the focus of your yoga session is relaxation, then nature sounds and relaxation music are often the ideal background music. If achieving a deeper level of meditation and reflection is the focus, then chanting music can help to focus the mind. Other options for yoga music can include Celtic music, classical music or world music. Ultimately, the key is to find the music for yoga that you feel most fully helps you to achieve the mental state you're aiming for.
