about

I wrote this song in 2009 or so when I first began teaching yoga and wanted to serenade people during savasana. Savasana is the final posture in many western yoga asana classes - one rests on the floor for 3-10 minutes and allows the postures and deep breathing to integrate into their systems, restore, rejuvenate, repair. The yogis believed that this was a time where we restored our "prana" or "life force energy / vital essence / vitality." I also see this time as the gift of doing nothing, letting the spirit and mind be free. I always ring chimes to symbolize when to return to your life. Namaste :)

lyrics

when you hear the chimes
open up your eyes
return to your life
return to your life

take a deep breath in
take a deep breath out
your body is your house
your soul's house is in your heart

when you hear the chimes
open up your eyes
return to your life
return to your life
