I believe that music and the asana practice are very parallel expressions of artistry. The musicians are expressing themselves through their instrument and the practitioner is expressing him/herself through various shapes.

That being said, I try to choose music that facilitates freedom within the asana practice for my students. I don't like to use music that has many words... I find it too distracting for both students and myself. It's more about a feeling the track invokes.... a good song can quite literally shift a yogis approach to a pose. Some deep grooves and base is always good...
