Derek Beres’s Playlist


By YJ Editor  |  

Music is always in the mix in New York City yoga teacher and deejay Derek Beres’s vinyasa yoga classes. “I prefer a strong flow with a focus on deep hip openers and inversions,” says Beres, who teaches at Equinox in Manhattan. “The music I play feeds that flow with a strong emphasis on bass, a love I acquired through almost a decade of deejaying.” His playlis is heavy on remixed world music, but near the end of the list, the clublike beats wind down, leaving room for quiet contemplation at the end of your practice.
