Music and myth are just as important to Alanna Kaivalya’s yoga practice as the poses themselves. In fact, it’s her style of blending stories and philosophy (much like Joseph Campbell did) with music and asana that have garnered her such a wide audience. You can hear her music chops on her kirtan albums, such as 2013’s Subtle Shift. Her books include Myths of the Asanas and Sacred Sound: Discovering the Myth and Meaning of Mantra and Kirtan. She regularly performs at concerts and kirtans at yoga festivals across the country.
