The Best New Music for Yoga: October 2017

Towards the end of October, the veil between the worlds becomes thin and transparent. This is a time of darkness, mystery, introspection, and inner reflection. The heart of autumn also sparks a deep desire for connection and communion with the spiritual realms. Music can serve as a potent guidepost to explore our inner worlds and as a pathway to find our connection to that which is greater than ourselves. We are excited to offer your ears, hearts, and souls a delightful selection of beautiful music for practicing yoga, meditation, massage or other introspective and relaxing practices. May these songs allow you to see deeply inside yourself and provide connection to higher states of consciousness.
