Yoga Mix 04 - Lotus Ascension

A new yoga music mix is ready for download. This one has a variety of sounds on offer with an overall very chilled out vibe.

It starts of with a good heaping of minimal ambient sounds mixed with ethnic vocals and percussion. It then slowly and steadily builds up to a harmonic trance inducing journey as some slow percussive beats begin to merge with the haunting chants and sitar backgrounds.

Some tracks of real note on this mix include Forests of Aryan by Guiding Spirit which I picked up years ago on a Spirit Of India compilation. A pretty hit and miss compilation if memory serves me right but this track I really dig.

A classic Makyo track is there from the first Ambient Meditation compilation released by Return To The Source. Makyo is busy working on new material across a number of projects so I highly recommend following him on Facebook to keep up to date on new releases from this amazing talent.  For those of you who have  been waiting for new Makyo materiel you can purchase two new tracks release this month via the Makyo bandcamp page.

And finally I'd like to mention the debut self-titled album from Ashirvad ( Darren Sangita ) who has masterminded an absolutely stunning album that should be part of any yoga music lover's collection.

If you enjoy the music on offer here you can now follow me via Facebook and GooglePlus where I update people each time a new mix is uploaded. Simple follow the links on the right hand sidebar.

Yoga Mix 03 - Harmony Of Light

Our third mix in the yoga audio temple yoga mix series is ready for free download and contains a number of rather long, ambient ethnic songs that combine to create an atmospheric journey into a higher realm of deep meditation and yogic transformation.

In this mix we have focused on long yoga music to allow for deep meditation without so many changes in pitch or composition. This is the perfect mix for any of you who prefer a much more meditative approach to your yoga practice. As with the first two releases, the mix comes in at around 90 minutes which is about how much time I spend on my sessions and I feel it's a good length of time for a full yoga class.

Yoga Mix 02 - The Healing Path

Welcome back to the yoga audio mixes download blog. This is the second full length yoga meditation mix that I have specifically made for deep meditation, relaxation and yoga practice. It continues in the same style as the first mix with a variety of ethic ambient soundscapes and slow tribal rhythms. 

This recording begins with the beautiful sounds of Nada Shakti and Bruce BecVar with the track Guru Brahma from the fabulous album Jiva Mukti. BecVar, an award winning multi-instrumentalist provides the sounds while Shakti's ethereal voice floats on a cushion of air throughout. There is a further track from the album included towards the end of the mix. A highly recommended album for lovers of eastern meditation music.

Desert Dwellers also feature again this mix, with two tracks providing a modern take on music for yoga. Desert Dwellers are well known in the chillout music world for their mix of world music and hypnotic beats, which covers a variety of downtempo electronic genres. For their best ambient yoga albums I recommend "Muladhara Yoga Dub"  and "Downtemple Dub : Waves".

There is one track which I had a bit of trouble identifying in my iTunes collection. Track seven in this mix has simply been labeled as "Indian flute meditation" and I'm not exactly sure where it came from. It has a North American Indian flute sound throughout. It may have been a file I downloaded from somewhere as it appears to be in a various music folder on my computer. If anyone happens to know the track name please let me know. It starts at around the 40 minute mark. Hope you all enjoy this relaxing yoga mix download and that it helps you to find a degree of inner peace and calm.

Yoga Mix 01 - Seeds Of Awakening

Welcome weary traveler to the Yoga Audio Temple. Sit back and relax with me as we go on a mystic journey into the healing sounds of eastern meditation and contemplation. This is the first of a series of free yoga mixes I am creating to help people relax with their yoga sessions at home or in the studio.

Each mix will be specially created with heartfelt intent on the healing power of sound and fundamental frequencies.

Yoga is not the only way to use these audio recordings. You will find they are equally effective for deep meditation, massage and as audio sleep aids.

So without further ado lets take the first step along this new path and tune in to this mix by selecting the play button on the audio player below.
