Episode 32: Stephanie Snyder — How Chanting & Playlists Create Connection

I know, I KNOW, my husband wrote an extremely popular blog post recently on why he has never played music in his nearly 20 years of teaching yoga. And yes, it’s been one of our most popular posts to date with more than 3,000 shares.

So, I guess this makes me the family contrarian: I like going to classes with music. And not all classes with music are loud or distracting or counterproductive to introspection. On this episode I decided to talk to Stephanie Snyder, someone I think of as the queen of the playlist. She offers her intention behind including music in class, her thoughts on the tradition of sound in yoga, plus she was kind enough to share some of the mistakes she’s made over the years.

BONUS: One of Steph’s favorite bands, Young Moon, create the soundtrack for this episode.
