Ambient music for yoga

I came across this lovely offering on Youtube.  If Christmas Day has been busy and your mind-body is revved up with rajas or bogged down in tamas, look for sattwa on your mat and in your heart.  After you have digested your food, do a gentle practice, give thanks and be joyful.  Whatever meaning Christmas […]
