In this month’s Kunga Yoga classes we honor the great invisible yoga teacher of MUSIC! How does inspirational music relate to service!? It offers us many gifts. It has the ability to build community, spreads smiles from ear to ear, moves us to dance, laugh, sing along, and spread joy.

Please enjoy the following quotes on music:

“Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul.”
“Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music”
Sergei Rachmaninov
“To stop the flow of music would be like the stopping of time itself, incredible and inconceivable.”
Aaron Copland
“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and cannot remain silent”
Victor Hugo
“Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul”
