Where the sonic mastery of DJ culture meets the illuminated sensibilities of the yoga lifestyle.
Our mission at YogiTunes is to provide top quality sound tracks for yoga and other healthy lifestyle activities. One of the benefits of this mission is that YogiTunes is becoming a global hub for musicians, DJ’s, yoga teachers and other wellness practitioners, who all share a passion for music that deepens any practice, no matter it’s form.
YogiTunes offers fans a huge library of hand-picked yoga music from all over the world. Once YogiTunes has secured the rights it is then handed over to a roster of highly talented and trained DJ’s. To be a YogiTunes DJ means you’re actively touring yoga studios, festivals and other yoga/music inspired events, and have spent many hours honing your listening, selection and sequencing skills. Our DJ’s sort through a tremendous amount of music so that you don’t have to.
This is the YogiTunes specialty – the power of the DJ. They ‘mine the gold’ for you, and then sequence the flow of music to enhance and deepen your experience, whatever your activity might be.
