There is a song I play often on my playlists during my classes towards the end of class, before savasana. Sometimes, in non-heated classes, I’ve brought in my guitar to play it live during savasana. I’ve had many students over the years ask about it, so I’ve decided to post it here and make it available to everyone.
It’s a song I wrote when I spent half a year traveling around India via motorcycle with my good friend, Octavio Salvado. I recorded this song in my apartment in Lakshman Jhula, Rishikesh, India in 2008 with a small hand held recorder. The sounds you hear in the background (the occasional honking horn and the beautiful birds chirping) are the sounds of the jungles (natural and man made) around my apartment. The guitar is a beautiful 3/4 length guitar that I had custom carved from a single block of wood during my time living in Peru (in 2007); a guitar I still love and enjoy today. The song, the guitar, the location and the time of my life all have a very special place in my heart, and I want to share it with all of you.
The name of the song is Wander. I hope you all enjoy the it! Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think! 🙂
