Produced by the Kripalu Yoga Teachers Association (KYTA), the Seva CD series includes tracks ranging from meditative to uplifting to joyously exuberant, which together evoke what it’s like to spend a day at Kripalu. Learn more about the inception of the Seva CD series.
The musicians who contributed to the project donated their work, thus giving the CD its name (seva is Sanskrit for “selfless service”). A portion of the proceeds from the purchase of each CD goes to Teaching for Diversity, a Kripalu-sponsored grant program for bringing yoga to underserved populations.
We are delighted to bring you Seva CD 2009, our second disc in the Seva CD series. For this CD, we’ve selected an array of tracks that are a perfect fit for yoga classes—starting with mellow grooves to help set the tone for centering and warm-ups, building in tempo to support asana flow, and then softening into serene melodies for relaxation and Savasana. This unique collection of melodies, chants, and joyous harmonies is also ideal for your personal practice and for your listening pleasure anytime.
