Putamayo Presents Yoga: Music That's Not Just for Asanas
Putumayo Presents Yoga is a musical CD filled with tunes from around the world. Although I am not a big fan of music during my yoga practice, these soothing tunes are comforting to play anytime.
Yoga is Putumayo's first CD release featuring songs selected to accompany yoga practice and serve as a relaxing soundtrack for daily life. Rooted in ancient Hindu, Buddhist and Jain traditions, the practice of yoga has evolved over the past 5,000 years. Adopted by millions of people around the world, yoga provides a vehicle for greater health and spiritual awareness. Music has long had a close relationship with yoga, particularly in the Bhakti tradition, which incorporates musical chants into its practice. Yoga features renowned musicians from around the world. British-born, South Indian artist Susheela Raman duets with Kenyan singer Ayub Ogada on the harmonious "O Rama." Krishna Das, who is the best-known US performer of traditional Indian kirtan-style music, demonstrates call-and-response chanting on "Hanuman Baba (Dub Farm Remix)." Costa Rican group Amounsulu create a serene atmosphere by blending sitars and glass bottles on the song "El Bosque Eterno de los Niños (Children's Eternal Rainforest)."
Many people find music during their yoga practice helps them focus their breath and clear the mind. This CD is a nice collection to accompany your asanas and vinyasa; however, I simply enjoy listening to it while I write and clean. I think it would be too relaxing for driving; it might put me to sleep.
Disclosure: I was sent free samples of these products to review. No prior assurances were given as to whether the review be positive or negative.
