Now that you’re on the path of breathwork, you should also know that music plays a huge part in the experience.
This is where our expertise lies, and we thought we should give you a few recommendations as to what music you can play during a breathwork session.
Nirvana Shatakam is a mantra dedicated to Lord Shiva, or the eternal consciousness.
It is a great mantra to destroy your ego, which is very useful in a breathwork setting.
Give it a listen here, before grabbing your own copy.
Sudarshana Ashtakam is a Hindu prayer to Lord Sudarshana.
It is widely popular because of the healing benefits listeners have felt. It should be played during breathwork, if you want to combat any illness.

Tayata Om Mantra is a Buddhist Mantra. It asks the great Buddha to move you past the influences of pain and suffering.
You can find true liberation, only when you have moved past your reactions to your challenges.

Our personal favorites are the Ganesha Mantra and the Nirvana Shatakam.
Ganesha mantra is a Hindu prayer to Lord Ganesha, who is the remover of obstacles.
Nirvana Shatakam is a prayer that destroys all sense of ego, and makes you part of the universal consciousness.
