Il Fiume D’Amore
A 21 minute yogic workout which strengthens both the body and mind.
Kaoshikii is a dance of 18 movements performed with the chanting of a
mantra. While chanting each word of the mantra there is a different movement
for both arms and feet that are to be done simultaneously. The album insert
includes a chart with detailed instructions. (Purchasers of a download receive a
PDF file containing the chart.) The album concludes with a Kiirtan track.
Kaoshikii means “dance for mental expansion.” P.R. Sarkar, Founder of
Ananda Marga, invented this wonderful dance in 1978. It is a yogic dance
primarily for women, although it benefits men too, and is reputed to be able to
cure 22 different types of disease. Kaoshikii is a “mudraic” dance. A “mudra”
is a gesture of the hands, which express a subtle idea. Indian and Oriental
Classical dance are based on hundreds of mudras.
