Mysore Yoga Paris – Closer Together
Soundscape: The Mountain Shala
Show Notes

This practice sound scape will transport you to our Shala in the Spanish Mountains where we retreat every summer to deepen our practice. 

Our outdoor Shala - far from the business of the city, nestles in Olive Groves and overlooks the magnificent Sierra Nevada. 

The unique soundscape enveloping our practice is created by the landscape itself and all its habitants - birds, cicadas, wind blowing through olive branches and soft mosquito nets. Breaths, bodies moving, quiet conversations between teacher and student… 

Many elements in this Soundscape are recorded directly in the Mountain Shala, and it is meant for you to play during practice to allow you to immerse in its energy. 

We chant the Ashtanga Opening Mantra and I count you though the fundamental standing postures before we dive into self-practice. For 90 minutes we are immersed in Yotam´s gentle Soundscapes opening our practice to our inner and outer landscape.

The music which carry a wide range of frequencies, is best experienced with a good sound system or headphones.

Yotam and Kia would like to dedicate this Soundscape to our beloved Sangha from near and far that every summer travels up to the mountains to retreat and deepen their practice together. A special thanks to David & Emma at Las Chimeneas who make everything possible and delightful!

With love & devotion
