“Yoga Chant was conceived at the Samasati Nature Reserve, under the canopy of the Costa Rican rainforest, during a week-long retreat of vinyasa flow yoga and chanting. Surrounded by the fullness of life, we gathered for three hours of deep vinyasa yoga and meditation in the morning, followed by hours of kirtan (chanting) into the night often to monsoon downpours.
?Day by day, our hearts began to expand like a chambered nautilus, opening to greater and greater freedom. The two practices were starting to merge and intertwine like the life around us. When it was time to leave, we all had the same question: How do we sustain an open, vibrating heart as we move through the world and return to the rhythms of urban life?
?The idea was born for a home practice CD to bring vinyasa yoga and kirtan, hatha and bhakti yoga (the yoga of devotion) together as a practical way to tend the garden of the heart in the midst of daily life.” –Shiva Rea
