It has already been a week since the event, but the work of using yoga to help under-privileged youth is never ending. We celebrated the release of Steve Gold’s new record “Let Your Heart be Known” last week at Exhale Center for Sacred Movement. Steve and the Stoned on Shiva band played a great show to a great audience. The event was hosted by Exhale and Shiva Rea.
Keeping in the spirit of what EarthTones started with the Yoga Revolution series, a portion of the proceeds went to an amazing organization: Yoga For Youth, a non-profit organization providing urban youth with tool for self-discovery that foster hope, discipline and respect for oneself and community. Now in its 16th year, Yoga for Youth was founded and is directed by a a dynamic heart-centered yoga instructor and insprirational leader, Krishna Kaur. Krishna Kaur has been teaching the art and science of Kundalini Yoga and Self Awareness since 1970. Having studied for over twenty-five years literally at the feet of her teacher and mentor, Yogi Bhajan, the Master of Kundalini and White Tantric Yoga, Krishna is a pillar in her community. She has introduced the science of Yoga to a multitude of diverse communities including schools, rehabilitation centers, detention facilities, jails, hospitals, senior homes, women’s shelters, entertainment studios, corporations, record labels, and law offices.
Steve Gold is a down to earth, soulful singer whom I have had the pleasure to work with by writing songs for and executive producing his new album, as well as playing with his band, Stoned on Shiva. Steve creates powerfully positive music that heals and inspires, broadcasting vibrations straight from the heart, and weaving a sacred space for yoga, healing or simply being in the moment. Steve’s personal practices of more than 25 years combines his passion for world music, chanting, singing, songwriting, yoga and metaphysics. Steve travels the world teaching sacred song workshops and performing music at yoga conferences, music festivals and benefit events.
I am grateful to both Steve and Krishna using their hearts and talents to keeping the Yoga Revolution alive and to make a real difference in the community.
