Maybe You Have to Be from New York City Review by Midwest Soul
Maybe if you live in hustle and bustle of New York City, you will find this CD to be filled with music for yoga and relaxation. Some others of us, though, might find the constant percussion and banging jarring, so disturbing that it has to be turned off. Maybe the music on this CD is perfect if you're doing health club yoga, filled with athletic energy and constant movement. For me, for my home practice, it was impossible. I see from the other reviews that I am in the minority. C'est la vie! (Posted on March 4, 2015)
Maybe in New York City Review by Midwest Soul
You probably have to be from New York City to find this CD relaxing or even conducive to a focused yoga session. Many of the tracks are filled with jangle and boom. Energizing? Perhaps for some. (Posted on February 26, 2015)

Review for Yoga Is Union Review by Erin G
This CD had good reviews and I like what I heard from the samples, so I purchased it for relaxation. Big mistake. Even though the description says it is good for relaxation, I must disagree. Every single song features loud, prominent percussion at the forefront. How the heck am I supposed to relax to that? It's stimulating, if anything, and for me, irritating. Even my husband, who usually enjoys whatever relaxation music I happen to be playing, got annoyed with it right away and asked me to turn it off. Maybe it's good for a power or hatha yoga class, in other words something fast-paced, but even then that's if you like percussion-heavy music. Not for me!! (Posted on June 8, 2013)
Review for Yoga Is Union Review by Daily Om
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.

Review for Yoga Is Union Review by The RajMan Review
In keeping with the title of his latest album, Tom Colletti showcases several tracks that promote union with yoga practice.
Colletti uses his keyboards and synthesizers to generate ethereal, atmospheric textures consisting of entrancing bass lines and hypnotic percussion that help attune body, mind, and soul in preparation for and during yoga exercises.
Even if you're not into yoga, the music is perfect for calmness and relaxation and is a great soundtrack for commuting or traveling. (Posted on January 16, 2013)
Review for Yoga Is Union Review by Todd A. Mayfield
This is hands-down the best music for an uplifting yoga session. I heard Pranayama on a digital cable music station over the Thanksgiving holiday and searched on Pandora to no avail. Low and behold Amazon came through for me. Now I have to have the whole album! (Posted on December 16, 2012)
