Music Vs. Silence

The Baltimore Yoga Examiner has this great article about music versus silence during yoga classes, which includes comments from Golden Heart Yoga teachers Elizabeth Lloyd and Dana Opalinsky.

At Golden Heart, our teachers plan their classes according to their own unique style and preference as well as their teaching tradition. While some use a variety of music to help soothe students from their busy lives, others use chanting to help tune in to the practice, and still others encourage students to tune in to the sound of their own breath. Each approach can have a unique effect on the class and the practice, and some classes may use a combination of all three.

We would love to hear from you: Do you enjoy music or silence during class? What kind of music do you think is most in tune with your practice?
