Silence is Golden

What’s wrong with silence in savasana? Or silence throughout class? When teaching do you use music or do you believe that silence is golden?

Teacher’s Tales:

As for me, it depends. I seem to have a foot in both camps. In my earlier days of teaching, I used to agonise over music for each class, structuring playlists and seeking out the perfect tracks but over the past few years that’s changed. I realised recently that in the majority of my classes now I don’t play music at all. In some instances this was a conscious choice, in others it was circumstances, like having no access to a stereo. I always have silence in savasana though – that’s a non-negotiable for me when I’m teaching. As a student I enjoy music in classes – it depends on the class in question – though I find music in savasana too stimulating (and it makes me stroppy!)
