Namaste Yoga

With another release in the Namasté series of albums, Real Music has once again gathered together some exceptional songs around a common theme. This time Real Music has delved into their catalog of music to find songs that support the practice of yoga hence, the album title Namasté Yoga. This album features nine songs by six artists that will give the listener a little more than an hour to fully enter into their practice of yoga and put them into the proper state of mind with which to obtain the most benefit from their time invested. Yoga is a physical, mental and a spiritual practice that has a variety of goals including stress relief, fitness, improved immunity, increased energy, and inner peace. The music found on this collection will allow the practitioner to focus their minds and spirits to achieve the greatest results over the course of this album.
 
Of course just because an album is called Namasté Yoga does not mean that the music can’t have other applications, because the music contained in this compilation would also be a good companion to meditation and relaxation.  Standout tracks include “Khumjung” by Ben Leinbach, “Flowing Bamboo” by Karunesh and “Bhakti Heenam” by Sacred Earth. The music on Namasté Yoga paints a rich landscape with flutes, sitars, chants, finger bells, percussion and wind chimes all the while carrying the listener away from the busy world of the 21st century and creating a space that allows them to fully concentrate on their own breath and being instead of whatever happened during the course of their day. 21st century life does not always lend itself to finding that quiet place physically or within our spirits where our focus can be on something other than the concerns of the day, but with an album like Namasté Yoga the listener will have a better chance of stilling the noise, quieting their spirit and achieving a balance that can be challenging to find.
 
It is not always appreciated as to how much skill is required to find and blend songs on a collection like this so that the overall effect of the album is that you don’t notice that there are six artists performing these songs because they all sound like they belong together, almost as if they were written for this particular project. You will find that all of the artists on this album are top notch musicians and vocalists which says a lot about the performers, but there is credit due to Terence Yallop of Real Music for being able to weave these artists into an album that coalesces around the shared theme of the practice of yoga. Take it from someone who has created many mix discs having thousands of songs from which to choose from to express a theme or to create a particular mood. It is not as easy as you might think. Others have said that music used in the practice of yoga can lift your mood, bring memories to the surface, inspire you to push through the more challenging poses, and even allow your mind to focus more fully. I think that this collection of songs will offer practitioners much inspiration as they unfurl over the course of an hour leading the listener ever deeper on their inward journey. Enjoy the journey with this music as your soundtrack and I bow to the God within you. Ambient Visions recommends this album.
