What is Yoga?
Originating over 5000 years ago from ancient India, Yoga focuses on the core areas such as flexibility, strength, balance and breathing, boosting both physical as well as mental wellbeing.
Having now been adapted into many different styles such as Ashtanga, Lyengar and Sivananda for example, certain styles are considered more vigorous than others, whilst others focus on the specifics, such as your breathing or your posture, for example.
Yoga, as well as other similar types of meditation, such as Tai Chi, come highly recommended by our very own NHS, in particular for older adults who are at risk to falls, helping to improve their balance as well as co-ordination.
What is the best sound system for Yoga?
Yoga will require a sound system where sound quality is considered the number one priority, without the need for booming bass and excessive volume levels. Your working environment is a relaxed and soothingly calm place to be, where the requirement of your sound system is to reflect this without any distraction from focussing on the task in hand.
If you own your own studio or run a practice from a set location, then maybe a more permanent solution is worth a consideration, with multiple ceiling speakers and separate amplification.

What do I need to look out for when buying a sound system for Yoga?
If you are considering a portable system that is designed for portability and mobility in mind, the smaller sized systems, any of the 8” & 10” sized speakers will achieve great results working within this type of environment. The Alto Uber systems and the better sounding LD Systems Road Jack and Road Buddy, which also includes a built-in radio microphone system, will offer great sound quality at an affordable price.
Please do bear in mind that if you teach other types of fitness, in particular the more energetic, such as Boxercise, Clubbercise etc, then we recommend that you consider the slightly larger systems, as mentioned previously, these speakers will offer you great performance for your Yoga, Tai Chi and just about all meditation type applications, but are not really capable of generating the volume and the energy levels required for a high intensity exercise class.
