Napra Review –
What’s music for yoga doing in the drumming section?
Well, to paraphrase an old car ad, this is not your mother’s
yoga music! Composed/performed/produced by DJ Free, his
keyboards, Native flute and distinctive chanting flow along
grooves laid down by master percussionist Brent Lewis. According
to the liner notes, this CD aims to energize the lower three
charkas first and foremost, and the moving body agrees.
Guest artists add a touch of sitar to a couple of tracks
and a didjeridoo’s earthy insistence to others, and
a sprinkling of grand piano notes graces the more meditative
ten-minute ending track. The overall feel is richly layered,
a kind of primal naturalness mixed with an edgy urbanity.
If one’s style of yoga, dance, or movement is highly
energetic, this could be the perfect motivator.
Accent Weekly, Florida –
Yoga Rhythm is great throughout all 9 songs. Whether you
teach “Active Yoga” or just enjoy practicing
Yoga in your home, this is perfect to keep you moving. Even
though it is also meditative, the music will not interfere
with class instruction. Perfect for teaching and good listening
Enid Weishaus, Certified Kripalu DansKinetics Instructor
Yoga Rhythm invites the listener/dancer on a journey into
exotic, sensual, primal and meditative realms of mind, body
and spirit. The music inspires creative movement as a snake
charmer to a snake.
