Shiva Rea explains her compilation of these tracks well: "Yoga Rhythms has a variation of currents or bhavas - all meant to enhance the flow of yoga. Primarily based on the rhythms of a vinyasa yoga practice, this CD mix follows an arch of rhythms that begins and ends with meditative stillness while riding several dynamic waves in between." She has done a super job of finding music that will at once be energizing without being very distracting, music to accompany us on inner journeys.
