"Savasana" is the name given to a period of deep relaxation that concludes a yoga session. During Savasana, the person becomes completely detached from their mind and body, allowing them to enter a state of bliss. Wah! captures the essence of this disassociating experience with this collection of impromptu mantras, created at the urging of inspired members from her yoga class. Wah! restricted the accompanying musicians from preparing for or rehearsing the material beforehand so that the music would be pure, perfectly capturing the energy of the moment. Instrumentation includes flute, violin, harmonium, guitar and bass, all without computer enhancements
This collection of chants is designed for deep relaxation. In yoga class, the posture for deep relaxation is "savasana" - the practice consists of dissolving the body and mind into a space of deep spiritual peace. This CD features sharmonium, tamboura, violin, flute, bass, and free-flowing vocals.
Savasana (pronounced shav-AH-sah-na) is a technique of relaxing the body, mind and spirit. It is a yogic practice which is as specific as all the other postures (or asanas) practiced during yoga class.In its simplest form, Savasana is a cool-out time at the end of a hard work-out, a time to let the muscles relax, and allow the mind to rest peacefully. In its most complex form, Savasana is an out-of-body experience...

Reviews of Savasana:
Derk Richardson/Yoga Journal Magazine
By working wtihin humbly defined musical boundaries and remaining clear in her intention, Wah! escapes the pitfalls into which much music made for yoga and meditation falls. Any music with too much going on, especially in terms of busy rhythms, complex harmonic changes, or attention-grabbing solos, would obviously distract, but anything too simplistic or bland can actually irritate one's musical sensibilities... Wah! keeps her vocalizing unaffected and unornamented, allowing the wafting melody lines to unfurl with breezelike simplicity.... (August 2002)
