From Christine Ghezzo’s transporting “Rag Yaman” to Guru Ganesha Singh’s heart-lifting rendition of “Wah Yantee” to the sounds of Swami Kripalu chanting, Seva CD Vol. 3 offers a meditative, moving musical experience ideal for use in classes or personal practice. (It makes a great gift, too.)

Every purchase of the a Seva CD, Kripalu’s annual music compilation, benefits the Teaching for Diversity program, which supports teachers bringing yoga to underserved populations throughout the world.

Thank you so much for sending me Seva CD Vol. 3. I love it, and my students do, too. It has been transformational in my personal practice and my students’ as well.
—Dorothy Billingsly, KYTA member
