The Best New Music for Yoga: October 2018 Edition

Best Music for Yoga

October is a time of transformation and release. With that in mind, much of the yoga music we have collected for you this month has a mellow, ambient sound to help you achieve the introspection you need to identify and let go of the things that no longer serve you. We hope this month’s new yoga music will give you the ability to exhale deeply and release all that limits you from embracing a state of true calm and equanimity.

Singles by Exist Strategy

The Best New Music for Yoga: October 2018 EditionThis album is a collection of songs composed over the last six years. A few of these tracks have an experimental sound that might be ill-suited for yoga practice, but the majority combine ambient and downtempo electronica sounds in a very interesting and beautiful way. Add these to a gentle or slow flow yoga playlist to create a dynamic sense of introspection and wonder.
