Tresca Weinstein, editor - Yoga Bulletin of the Kripalu Yoga Teachers Association (November 15, 2008) When Bhavani sang "Prayer to the Ocean of Life" at the 2007 KYTA conference, KYTA members repeatedly requested that she record this powerful, heart-warming song. On her new CD, Bhavani fulfills that request and adds a dozen more uplifting and soul-searching songs in which her rich voice glows against a tapestry of musical accompaniment by Linda Worster, David Grover, Mark Kelso, and others.   Belinda Bothwick, holistic therapist (October 10, 2008) Bhavani's clear, warm voice touches your soul, the lyrics fill your heart with joy and hope, and the combination transports you to places of inexplicable beauty.   Sara Meeks, yoga practitioner and teacher (December 23, 2008) 5 out of 5 stars! Music to Stir your Soul For accompaniment to Yoga practice or for easy listening while doing other activities, the deeply passionate and moving voice of Bhavani adds a magnitude of inspiration to whatever you are doing. Not only can you sing along to the beautiful lyrics as you hear the gorgeous sounds of the accompanying musicians, but you can FEEL the depth of passion and emotion of Bhavani's crystal-clear voice deep in your soul. The more you listen, the more you feel. A definite must-have for Yoga practitioners who want to add another level of beauty to their experience and for teachers who want to share that beauty with others.”
