Songs To Add To Your Labor Playlist Today

   I use music intentionally in my prenatal yoga classes, with playlists that will coincide with the flow of my plan for that day. There are always slower songs in the beginning of class, music that picks up the pace in the middle and then we end on a relaxing note. I use many of the same songs in my classes knowing that when my students hear certain songs start to play through the speakers, it sparks a response in the body.

"Oh perfect, that song always means savasana is right around the corner!"

   I love the idea that they might use some of the same music that I play in class to assist them in their labor. I get asked for my playlists often and I am always happy to share! Today I'm listing some of my most popular and requested songs that you can use for your own home yoga practice, meditations and even your labor playlist. The songs are in no particular order, and some are intended to build energy in the room while others bring quiet and calm. If you come to class on Sunday's you will probably find all of them very familiar!
