May Mantra Playlist

Spring has sprung and, as the wind blows in warmer weather and the sun begins to shine, we literally begin to spring into action. Despite the days being longer, so many of us still feel like we are short on time. 

Taking time to practice yoga becomes even more important as our calendars begin to overflow with activity and plans. This is, of course, a perfect time to prioritize regular yoga classes. On the days when yoga class just won’t fit into your schedule, set aside a couple minutes to listen to our May playlist and move through your favorite yoga asanas. 

During yoga class, the teacher’s voice and their playlist can help you to go deep into your practice. This May Mantra Playlist offers a gentle rhythm to support you in your personal practice.

So when you need a little extra calm in your life, slow down and turn on these tunes, featuring three of our fav yoga artists. Listen on your commute to work, play these mantras as you practice at home, or allow these healing sounds to help you let down as you drift off to sleep at the end of the day.

You’ll find this playlist helps you to breathe deeply, with a steady, gentle rhythm designed to invoke a sense of inner peace… so allow your breath to be deep and rhythmic… and just follow the guidance of your own body.

Go ahead…. #GoDeep and create some calm!

Music & Movement – Playlist 1

Life is busy. Believe me, we know! Many of us practice yoga to find that stillness and strength amid the swirling activities of job, fun, family. Sometimes, however, just when we need a yoga class the most, the time doesn’t match up with our schedules or we simply run out of hours in the day!

So what to do?

For some, grabbing a quick home practice is already a habit. But for others, it feels like something only super-dedicated yogis do.

In class, motivation often comes from the voice of a teacher encouraging us to bring full strength, attention and awareness to our postures. But we can also draw inspiration from the steady rhythm of music that speaks directly to the soul, right at home.

While we love seeing you here at Five Pillars, we’re also eager to support your total yoga lifestyle and your practice outside of the studio. So we’ve put together a light, bright 25-minute playlist for you to use at home.

If you’re just dipping your toe into the home practice realm, don’t put too much pressure on yourself! Listen to the music, find your breath, and listen to what the body wants to do. Let your yoga move through you!


You’ll find this playlist starts off soft and sweet, builds a bit of heat and then slows down for final resting posture… so just follow the rhythm.


Still want a bit of guidance?

Stretch a bit on the floor, take a few warriors, or perhaps use our standing core-strengthening sequence, flow through a sun salute or two, and then come back to the floor for a seated forward fold over extended legs or a pigeon pose before allowing yourself to relax right into Savasana.




Go ahead…. Go Deep!
