Perhaps no one is more qualified to offer a program on the practice of both yoga and chant than Richard Freeman, who lived in India for nearly a decade mastering Sanskrit chant and how it can complement and enrich the practice of yoga. Now he shares the fruits of his intensive study with Yoga Chants
, a two-CD instructional program on the authentic meaning, precise pronunciation, and yogic application of traditional Sanskrit chant.
Drawing from the Upanishads and other classical yoga texts, Yoga Chants
helps listeners invoke the sacred, find deeper meaning and empowerment in their yoga practice, and reach the ultimate goal of all yoga, namely liberation. Through commentary on the literal translation and modern understanding of the chants, and featuring the opportunity to participate in call-and-response chants of several Sanskrit mantras, Yoga Chants presents:
- Why chant completes yoga practice in a way no pose alone can
- The science of sacred sound—proven physiological effects of chant
- Ancient chants from India for overcoming delusion, cultivating peace and prosperity, awakening insight into the happiness of pure Being, and much more
With Yoga Chants, listeners are invited to join world-renowned expert Richard Freeman for a session they can revisit time and again, to bring voice into harmony with body in an ever-deepening experience of realization and freedom.
