Music for Yoga
Yochido is unique: Most "Music for Yoga" albums are just re-treads of some New Age artist's back catalog; they're everywhere. This album, however, was created working directly with Yoga and Tai-Chi master Vidal Bitton (Lakeview Yoga) and as Erich Benedict and I wrote and recorded the music, Vidal would try the tracks out in front of an actual class and we used his feedback to make it work exactly with the flow and pace of a yoga class. No one, to my knowledge, has ever done this.
Of course, the album is also the perfect accompaniment to a workout or a drive through the mountains…it's just a very cool recording. It's completely different from anything I've released before—and it was my first digital-only release!
