Above & Beyond have briefly stepped away from the frenetic realm of dance music with, “Flow State Meditations.” The English Trance trio has focused their attention on meditation and yoga, and released 17 original ambient and piano-based compositions. Familiar with the rigors of touring life, the group describes this undertaking as, “music tools for yoga and mental fitness.” Consequently, “Flow State Meditations” has been lauded in established circles. Furthermore, it has received extensive radio play on BBC Radio 1 and Sirius XM.
Seventeen cities around the world hosted “Flow State” yoga sessions, in collaboration with New York-based yogi, Elena Brower and the DAYBREAKER community. Eight months later, music from “Flow State Meditations” can be found in the world’s biggest yoga and mindfulness playlists. These include Apple Music, Amazon, Deezer, and Spotify. Even more, it has amassed over 50 million streams. Additionally, the album was accompanied by a spoken word meditation piece from Elena Brower. Call it self-empowering words for troubling times, if you will.
Elena Brower has taught yoga and meditation since 1999. Her first book, “Art of Attention,” has been translated into seven languages; her second book, “Practice You: A Journal” is a bestseller. Elena met Above & Beyond on the playa at Burning Man in 2014, where the seed that became Flow State was first planted. Her, “Practice You Podcast” is beloved globally and her practices can be found at Glo.com.
