Meditation Music Free MP3 Download – Dreamscape
Today I would like to share with you another great track, which is great for practicing Yoga. It is a soothing track and so can also be used for relaxation, inspiration or as preparation for meditation.
This music comes from the Kundalini Yoga tradition, which incorporates music and mantra as a major aspect of its practice. Kundalini Yoga has not just given us great teachers and yogis, but has also been a source of great artists and musicians.
Kundalini Yoga Musician – Simrit Kaur
The artist whose work I am sharing with you is Simrit Kaur and you will find her enchanting and beautiful music on her website at Simrit Kaur Music.
Here is how her music and band are often described:
Known for its eclectic sound, the band is gaining world recognition for the uniquely fresh arrangements combined with a contagious uplifting energy and ancient appeal. Attendees often compare the sound to world chant fusion music meets Sound Tribe Sector 9 and Pink Floyd. The Simrit Kaur Band has established itself as a group with incredible energy, groove and vision while simultaneously debunking preconceived notions of the traditional band.
The band is anchored by vocalist Simrit Kaur with her rhythmic arrangements and hypnotic melodies. Simrit studied both Western and Eastern classical vocals and is an accomplished percussionist.
Yoga Music Benefits:
If you have ever attended a Kundalini Yoga class, you will be well aware that music is an integral part of the practice and if the teacher is experienced and intelligent, they will be able to use the music to enhance your yoga practice. In my classes, I design my CDs and playlists such that they start with slow to medium tracks, then move to energetic tracks as we approach the tail end of Kriyas, when things are getting really challenging, and finally have soothing and relaxing music for the relaxation periods done at the end of the class.
In this way the music really helps set the internal and external atmosphere for the practice appropriately. The free download below is great for such relaxation periods, flowing yoga movements or warm-ups.
Also, for those who really enjoy this great blend of etheric melodies and consciousness altering music of Simrit’s please find her tour details below as well. There is nothing like the energy of a live concert, so if you can attend go for it. Please note her concerts are right around the corner, so be sure to act quickly!
