Just like all types of exercise, I do yoga to relieve stress, clear my mind, burn calories, and strengthen my body. So when I'm on the mat, I'm doing challenging moves like holding Fierce for 10 breaths or balancing in Scissor Legs Side Crow. I prefer sequences that flow through poses quickly and target every muscle, so I need my music to keep up with me.
Check out this 90-minute yoga playlist. It starts off slow, then works you hard for about an hour. Then there's 20 minutes of slower-paced music so you can do quieter poses like Pigeon and Headstand, and then there's 10 minutes of Savasana. If you're not sure how to lead yourself through 90 minutes of yoga, just pop in a yoga DVD like Baron Baptiste — Soul of Strength, turn down the volume and pump up this playlist.
