Musical Yoga Day

Musical Yoga Day is a celebration of people who love to practice yoga accompanied by certain musical compositions. Some yoga practitioners never use music in class. These practitioners consider her a distraction.

But a lot of both yoga teachers and practitioners cannot imagine classes without music. It determines the rhythm, helps to tune in to the desired mood, connect to the meditation process, completely relax or, on the contrary, speed up movements when performing dynamic exercises.


It is not known on whose initiative Musical Yoga Day is celebrated on August 26th. But this, in all likelihood, is a person involved in yogic practices. Perhaps a teacher who uses music for class and has noticed excellent results with his students.

Interesting facts

What yoga teachers think about the use of music in the classroom:

  1. Many use it, but only on the condition that it does not distract from yoga itself. It should support the mood of those involved, but not switch them to yourself. Music with vocals can be distracting. Some use mantras or piano.
  2. Chanting of mantras is practiced and these are also sounds. The right music can be just as effective as mantras.
  3. Music helps to enter the state of “flow”, setting the right rhythm and playing the role of a link between the energy of the soul and the physical body.
  4. Music is the universal language of communication. It can help unite and understand people of different cultures. What is difficult to explain in words can be conveyed through music.
  5. Calm music has a positive effect on the nervous system, reduces anxiety, relaxes, stabilizes breathing, blood pressure, and pulse. Under active, the human body wants to move, and it performs the movements with pleasure, which is suitable for dynamic exercises.

How to celebrate

In Musical Yoga Day, if you practice yoga, you can update your playlist for classes, pick up new songs that can help you improve yourself. If you haven’t taken classes yet, you can attend the first lesson. Doing exercises with music is not boring!
