Music has the powerful potential to heal.

Fortunately, there are a number of amazing resources available to us to incorporate the therapeutic effect of music in our everyday life. One of the latest is produced by accomplished world musician Yuval Ron in the four CD set Healing Sounds for Yoga, Mindfulness & Creativity: Aural Journey through the Doshas of Ayurvedic Medicine.

In this release, Yuval Ron collaborated with Dr. Richard Gold, psychologist, Asian medicine practitioner, and Qi Gong master, to create compositions informed by ground-breaking theories of sound, neuroscience, and brain entrainment.

Each of the CDs is designed to balance the different energetic qualities described in Ayurveda known as the doshas. The first three albums affect the three doshas (Vata: The Soaring Soul, Pitta: The Vital Flame, and Kapha: Gaia’s Womb). The vata dosha is related to the elements of air and space and governs all movement in the body. The pitta dosha contains the elemental quality of fire and governs all transformation in the body. The kapha doha contains the elements of water and earth and governs the structure of the body. The fourth CD in the series, Vital Harmony: Sound Healing of the Doshas, includes brain entrainment rhythms and sonic harmonies to address all of the doshas.

The ambient weaving of a variety of instrumentals with Jai Uttal’s chanting of Om create a sonic vibration that is perfect as accompaniment for spiritual practice or as soothing background music. Once you press play, you’ll want to listen all day.

Felicia M. Tomasko
Felicia Tomasko has spent more of her life practicing Yoga and Ayurveda than not. She first became introduced to the teachings through the writings of the Transcendentalists, through meditation, and using asana to cross-train for her practice of cross-country running. Between beginning her commitment to Yoga and Ayurveda and today, she earned degrees in environmental biology and anthropology and nursing, and certifications in the practice and teaching of yoga, yoga therapy, and Ayurveda while working in fields including cognitive neuroscience and plant biochemistry. Her commitment to writing is at least as long as her commitment to yoga. Working on everything related to the written word from newspapers to magazines to websites to books, Felicia has been writing and editing professionally since college. In order to feel like a teenager again, Felicia has pulled out her running shoes for regular interval sessions throughout Southern California. Since the very first issue of LA YOGA, Felicia has been part of the team and the growth and development of the Bliss Network.
