I’ve gone back and forth about using music in class — I did some for a few years, then none for a handful, now I’m back to using it more often than not. It has a big influence on the vibe of the class and I contend it should be used judiciously. I tend to choose music that is not particularly “yoga music” except for some mantra versions that are awfully nice. Rebecca liked my 1st day of Hanukkah playlist so much that she asked me to post it. Here you go (and stop by class through the New Year and you can hear it yourself):

Christmas Time is Here (A Dreamers Christmas by John Zorn)
Blue Christmas (A Very Special Christmas, Vol. 3, cut by Sheryl Crow)
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas (by Aimee Mann)
I’ll Be Home for Christmas (Crooner’s Christmas, cut by Elvis Presley)
Sky Mantra (Rasa Lila by Subway Bhaktis)
The Christmas Song (Pottery Barn Hip Holidays Vol. 1, cut by Ella Fitzgerald)
The Christmas Blues (Pottery Barn Hip Holidays Vol. 1, cut by Dean Martin)
Happy Holiday Blues (Six String Santa by Joe Pass)
Bach: Christmas Oratorio, BWV 248, Flöest, Mein Heiland (Grace by Kathleen Battle)

Thanks so much for posting the list and your excellent advice about using music in our classes!
My pleasure, Rebecca; I am loving this playlist myself! Happy holidays!
I can’t wait to peruse through this list! I downloaded some Adele because of you. Yay Christmas Music. (insert me wearing an elf hat and jumping up and down). Thanks PF!
I’ve just named the warrior poses after you, miss elf!
I hope you don’t mind that I borrowed some of these! Happy Holidays.
On the contrary, Jane…that’s the point! Happy Hanukah and all the rest! P
