There’s nothing like the perfect power song to get you pumped up for an intense workout. So why not apply the same musical motivation to your yoga practice? With artists like Nelly, The Fugees, and The XX serenading you through your downward dogs and warrior poses, this workout playlist puts a seriously modern spin on the ancient practice. “But if yoga is supposed to be about quieting your mind, isn’t the music distracting?” you might ask. To the contrary, the music helps people get out of their own heads and focus more on the poses. If you play a very strong song, the poses become stronger. If you play a relaxing song at the end, it helps you relax. The music really helps the practice, and helps you get a better workout.
