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
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.
