I have read articles about needing special licensing to play background music. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! Gina
Playing music for a class or in a gym is considered public performance, even when it’s small group training. You need ASCAP, BMI, or SEASAC.
Or, you can use music that is license-free. (The stuff that you buy from itunes, Spotify, the music store typically is NOT license-free). There are a few yoga dj’s that compose their own music and release it license-free, although that’s probably not the vibe you’re looking for.
