"I love this CD and the other Yoga Zone CD, Music for Relaxation. My only complaint is that it seems a bit too upbeat for meditation but I love listening to it so I don't really care! But if anyone can recommend something a bit more spare for meditation (or getting to sleep, actually), I'd love to hear about it. I hope Yoga Zone, whoever they are, continue the series."

"I like to have natural sounds or some type of 'yoga style' music while I'm either practicing yoga or just trying to relax. This CD just didn't fit. There are a few ok 'songs' but the rest of it is either too fast/upbeat or there's too much talking/chanting. I found myself distracted when I put this CD on."
More than for Meditation

"I first wrote off this CD which made me think again. When I teach Yoga I don't want the music to dominate the sessions; that takes away the focus. After listening to Yoga for meditation, I felt this collection suited well for my kind of Yoga posture practise. As I keep the volume low, it brings in the right amount of music to my sessions.The first track - Brief Repose - wakes you up; I find it nice to start a Yoga session with this, even Sun Salutation fits in. Then it is time to start with standing postures as you get deeper into practise with the track by Tim Story (Conversation in the Rain); As your body and mind unfolds and awakens the energy within, the strings let you get deeper into your Self. The Shanti Mantra by Ravi Shankar lets one be in peace as you hold the Triangle and reflect. Espana and the Beauty Within lets you continue the stillness you achieve in an asana. It feels nice to open up to the Cobra as the Theme from in Search of Angels starts. Tibet Pt. 2 is kind of eerie for an asana or meditation; suggest do something where you don't reflect too much here. Night in the Land is a nice change of tune and pace as you beautifully hold the seated spinal twist and enjoy the energy rising and subsiding along the spine. Out of time and Threes slows your postures a bit, but this is where practise the seated bends and variations and hold still'er and longer! Angel's flight helps you enliven as you work your dorsal side. Special Place is ideal as you practise the corpse and later meditation. Before I go by Yanni helps bring everyone back to the present, and gets them on the go with a relaxed and a refreshed perspective to deal with the present.As I finish my session, I start to wonder there is an incredible number of ways you can mix the tracks with the different postures. All in all, this is a nice collection to add variety for Yoga practise."
