NEW AGE: New Age, SPOKEN WORD: With Music
"To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of the arts." Thoreau
The way you awaken each morning can affect your entire day. With YOGAWAKENING, you will never experience sudden heart-racing or body-jarring shock as a shrieking clock screams you into wakefulness. Instead, gentle chimes invite you to wake slowly and naturally, with two beautiful instrumental melodies further supporting your rise from sleep into readiness to embrace the Sunrise Stretch and Sun Salutation yoga postures. Five or ten minutes in the morning is manageable and has the capability of changing the quality of the listener''s entire day. YogaWakening can be used in a CD alarm clock for awakening or in a traditional CD player for gentle chimes and yoga stretches. Easy to follow verbal and written instructions are included.
Suzanne Jackson, a yoga teacher and director of the Awakening Arts and Yoga Center, created YogaWakening because her waking routine did not reflect what she was teaching in her yoga classes...be gentle and honor your body. She found that she was rising in the morning with a jolt to her system from the alarm clock which caused her heart to race. It took her body a few minutes just to calm down after she turned the alarm off.
Lisa Reagan, composer, and president of Stillpoint Records in The Plains, Virginia created the music to accompany the routines. Lisa and Suzanne are longtime friends and have collaborated on projects such as YogaWakening and the DVD YogaSing, Yoga for Singers and Performers. Lisa explains the creative process, "We wanted the music to capture the mood and energy of the morning so as Suzanne did the routines, I composed the music by watching every subtle movement. We are both musicians and feel the music is just what we envisioned."
