Description

The music sensation that has ignited New York City's yoga scene is now available for everyone. Tom Colletti's Yoga Is Union is masterfully composed and designed to complement all yoga practices. Colletti delivers a perfectly balanced album that is upbeat enough to keep you energized, yet also serene enough to shift you into a state of peaceful, open receptivity.

Designed with a track list that can be scaled to fit any length of yoga class, Yoga Is Union delivers a fresh and modern musical offering created with a genuine reverence for the spiritual heart of yoga. “Our inspiration for the tracklist was Patanjali's eight limbs of yoga,” Colletti explains. “We made this music to be authentic while also being fun and liberating.”


Voted the #1 yoga CD in New York City, here is the album that is receiving rave reviews from the top instructors in the city:

“The best music possible for a yoga class.”
—Hilaria Thomas, Yoga Vida NYC

“Tom's music nourishes one's body, mind and soul… wonderful!”
—Claire Diab, American Yoga Academy & Director of Yoga at the Chopra Center

“Pristine music for yoga.”
—Elena Brower, Founder of Virayoga in NYC and Global Yoga Ambassador for Adidas

“The ideal backdrop to any practice.”
—Caroline Dawson, NYSC Vinyasa Instructor

Not quite trance music, ambient soundscapes, nor a survey or collage of ethnic musics married to electronica or found sounds, this album by audio engineer, producer, and percussionist Tom Colletti is more of a subtle, unobtrusive soundtrack to your meditative practice. It is synthesized sounds with hints of melody and even some tastefully placed birdsong, but it’s not the kind of album that leads you by the hand and takes you on a curated journey through dramatic lands of sound. Instead it will quietly adjust your mood and offer you colors and textures to shape as you please.

“Yama,” the opening track, sustains a shimmering hum from which the sounds of flute or strings occasionally rise. “Niyama” offers a trace of a melody that could well have evolved from the sounds of rising bubbles, driven by light percussion, predominately cymbals and chimes. On “Asana” a flute voice sings the melody and some downright funky percussion layered underneath creates a groove. A more mystical creation, “Pranayama” plays with sounds of respiration over a centering hum, which kicks out at intervals to avoid becoming too pervasive or oppressive. Rhythmic hand drums lead the way on “Pratyahara,” and “Bodhi” lays the groundwork for playful flute harmonies and runs of synthesized harp.

A bolt of electric current is added to the mix in “Abhyasa,” over which deep chime tones resound and sitarlike strings twang. Below this, reedy, clapping percussion produces a jaunty rhythm that lasts all the way through to “Dharana,” a track on which bouncing organ vamps interplay with the sounds of light chanting. Things go misty again on “Dhyana.” The percussion is cut back to gentle maracas and castanets. Piano dances over an angelic hum that carries over to the next track, “Samadi,” a respiratory ebb and flow of human voices over which marimba and guitar sounds dance lightly. “Mouna” begins a breezy cool down, which ends in “Savasana” in a windy whisper.
