Overview

Yoga is more than just a meditative way of movement to achieve masterful flexibility. Nada Yoga (also known as Shabda Yoga) uses sound and vibration for healing and religious fulfillment. Russill Paul, who studied chanting practices in India for many years, shares eight powerful Vedic mantras on this album, including the chant for the universal sound: "Aum." Paul's sensitive yet luscious instrumental arrangements include Indian instruments, percussion, and a dab of synthesizer; realistic nature sounds and exquisite mixing create the ambience of a sacred temple. Paul's overdubbed voice gives the impression of an intimate chanting session, almost like having a private instructor. The music sounds glorious just for listening, and complete instructions and words are provided for those who want to chant along.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Russil Paul's Shabda Yoga is the first volume in the Yoga of Sound series. Appropriately, this album introduces the listener to the principles and practices of shabda yoga, a form of yoga that uses sound to focus and calm the mind and body. The album's music facilitates balance and deeper spiritual understanding by combining the ten-stringed Unitar, Bansuri flute, traditional Indian drums, and chanting into ethereal yet effective music. Listening suggestions and meditations are also included with the album.
