I’ve been a singer for as long as I can remember.
When I studied yoga it was natural that I was drawn to chanting and mantra. This project was a collaboration with cellist Mike P. Harte. The purpose was to create music for the yoga sequences in my program Just Keep Breathing- The (Surprisingly Simple) Foundations of Yoga.
The music came together – kind of like magic.
And so we decided to make it an album. Haunting and beautiful, it feels to me like a musical story about my struggle with – and accent out of – years of anxiety.
Chants to Retreat
If you like cello music and you’re looking for the perfect soundtrack for an afternoon of yoga, meditation or just plain chillaxin’… this magnificently mellow cello/vocal duo should do the trick.
Chants to Retreat’s debut album From Darkness to Light has been called “uplifting,” relaxing,” and “the perfect backdrop for creative projects,” with an uncanny way of clearing + focusing the mind.
It’s also been called “powerfully healing.”
As one fan put it:
“I just had a traumatic event – an auto accident where my car was totaled, and I walked away – forever changed. This music is helping me heal.
Thank you for putting this musical beauty into the world. I need this, like I need my next breath. Bless you!” – Erin

Truly beautiful. It draws you in and evokes instant emotion. It moves the core … stirs the soul … makes you tactilely aware of your heart … and connects you to the center of being.Dr Kim Yoo
I’m always looking for good music to help me shift my mood. I have one set of songs that pumps me full of energy, and another set that gives me a creative boost. When I need to connect to that quite space inside I know I can turn to Chants to Retreat.The music immediately puts me into an introspective space. It feels like it opens up room for me to breathe and just be. I can feel myself relax into that space, and from that inner stillness and connectedness I can move in any direction I need to in my work and my life. That’s the power of music. That’s the power of Chants to Retreat. That’s why I love this album.Angel Sullivan
