by Clair Oaks



Four of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra’s set to the original music of Clair Oaks, this project is dedicated to yoga teachers, students and all seekers of Truth. May it help to create the bhav (mood or feeling) to draw the listener deeper inside to experience the True Self, present in all beings.
This album was made for quiet yoga practice, meditation, sutra practice or any quiet endeavor. You can read more about it at Clair's blog -
