Baron Baptiste is known for testing yogis’ endurance with his Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga, a fast-paced and physically intense style of asana practice. His playlist starts off primed for Sun Salutations, builds energy for a series of standing poses, and then chills out for seated and supine poses.
Practicing yoga to music can, he says, “spark our spirit and call forth something deep in us that is both ancient and fully present. Music creates an opening to action and stillness, which takes practice into new realms of mystery and expansive reality.”
