Yoga is one of the most internationally recognized ways to de-stress and helps you get rid of certain diseases and in general reduce the bad energy around you. It takes you on a spiritual journey to connect your mind and body to be one and to be able to take away the stresses and the bad vibes from a person’s life. Let’s discuss everything you need to know about music yoga.
There are many different types of yoga you can get into but I’m sure that many of your yoga friends must be obsessing about, is Yoga music. You may think what is yoga music? and do people actually listen to it? Let me tell you what it is and a little bit about a certain type of yoga call Nada Yoga: The Original Yoga Music.
What is Yoga Music?
Yoga music is music that basically makes our experience of yoga more appropriate according to the mood you are looking for. There are many different sounds with specific temps or lengths of time with certain meditation and mantras.
Sometimes the music is instrumental like crystal singing bowls or gong where the vibrations help us open up our hidden parts of us. Any sort of music works actually but if you listen to yoga music it helps you when doing yoga because it supports the physical, emotional and spiritual shifts that yoga can bring, where you can find true bliss.
Nada Yoga: The Original Yoga Music
This is a type of yoga philosophy which translated from Sanskrit means “union through sound vibration” where the vibrational frequency and energy connects both our mind and body. Sound is can create unique experiences for you that allows you to feel different emotions or remember the thing stored in our mind.
If you do Nada yoga you can go through different yogic modalities where you can experiment with different mantras and chants to widen your mind, make connections with your spiritual energy. Nowadays people more into yoga music so that, utilizing your full capacity, reach yoga bliss.
5 Ways Where Music Can Shift your Mindset During Yoga.
Let me tell you what these 5 ways are:
1. Setting the Mood
Music always helps with your emotional states so naturally when you hear something upbeat you are more likely to move about and do things. High tempo music helps you take in more oxygen that connects you to the rhythm that gives you more energy mentally and physically.
2. Settles Your Nerves
Since music changes emotional state, when you listen to slow and soothing music it relaxes your body and mind which helps produce chemicals in your body like serotonin and dopamine that reduces anxiety and make you feel calm, connected and content. In a world where we are constantly around stress stimulants, music helps us reduce these stresses.
3. Supports your Health
There has always been a connection between health and music. It is known that music can boost your immune system and cell growth to protect yourself from pathogens. It also lowers your respiration, blood pressure and heart rate that in turn help circulation, digestion and even brain development. Music rhythm can change your brain chemistry that releases chemicals to overall wellness in mood, memory, metabolism and more.
4. Makes Connections
It is known to everyone that music is a universal language, people get together in crowds to listen to music to enjoy each other. We always have a connection with a rhythm that makes us energetic and it is usually viewed as a community connector, personal healer and artful expression. In yoga, specifically in a yoga class, it clears our mind and connects one another by the way we move and breathing together.
5. Sending us into the “Flow”
There is a special type of yoga class called the Vinyasa flow class that technically connects breathing and movement through music. Nada yoga uses music to meditate with movement so that you can make yourself go with flow relaxing energy.
Most yoga classes don’t actually have music in the routines but in my opinion, if you really want to relax and open your inner chakras then music is just an additional key to connect yourself mind, body and soul. It makes you achieve a state of true bliss. All I am saying, in the end, is that yoga and music really work well together and I usually follow this type of yoga the most.
