Body Mind Elements
Body Mind Elements which include members Magnus Frykberg and Awa Manneh was formed in early 2008 with the creation of their very first album for Body Mind practices – Elements™ for Yoga and Body Mind vol. 1. It was created upon request from a familiar Yoga and Pilates teacher who needed great music for her many classes abroad where she struggled with diifferent immaterial rights issues while playing music in classes. So the first album was created with an integrated playlist so that she didn’t have to skip between the songs - brilliant for any teacher in class. The name Elements™ was born and the album was so well received among other teachers and users within the yoga community that Magnus and Awa decided to continue with a second album, following the first recipy of letting a professional be a part of the process to maximize usability for the end user. With the creation of the third album a new member was added; Erik Jansson a pianist who with a solid background within the ”alternative” genre suited the group’s Body Mind profile perfectly. Now with a release of 5 albums within the series Elements™ for Yoga and Body Mind and one Spa album the Band/Label are more committed than ever to keep bringing their own flavoured twist to the Yoga music genre and as more and more people are discovering the highly practical benefits to their albums as well, there’s a great chance they’ll keep serving the yoga community for many years to come.
