This album was the result of a successful crowdfunding campaign.
In under one month's time, over 300 people from around the world partnered with the artist, Shira Taylor Gura, to help bring this CD to life.
My name is Shira Gura. I am an award-winning author, well-being coach, and podcast host. In addition, I have been teaching yoga for nearly two decades and have been dreaming for many years about teaching a Yoga class to gentle Hebrew music, but I could never find what I was looking for.
The CD is divided into Morning, Noon, and Evening tracks and each track (lasting about 18 minutes) is comprised of three Hebrew mantras: Modeh/Modah Ani (for Gratitude), Halleluyah (for Praise), and Ahna (for Request). These chants are simple, making the music accessible even to those people who are less familiar with the Hebrew language.
This CD has touched the lives of many people around the world: Day school principals, Hebrew teachers, Yoga and meditation teachers, camp directors, youth group advisers, pregnant women, mothers, fathers, grandparents, spiritual care counselors, massage therapists, psychologists, Jewish and non-Jewish religious and non-religious people, as well as rabbis across the denominational spectrum.
They have realized the power this CD can have in their lives and in the lives of those they lead, guide, and teach.
My hope is this CD will also touch your life.
And that we have the opportunity to meet one day and experience this music together.
