Sheryl Crow contributes to a CD to raise funds for kids yoga programs

HollywoodNews.com: Grammy winner musician Sheryl Crow has contributed towards a CD to raise funds for providing in-school kids yoga programs, according to reports.
Titled “Yoga Revolution”, its other contributing artists include Sarah McLachlan, Sting, Ziggy Marley, Peter Gabriel, Seal, Michael Franti, Krishna Das, Anjelique Kidjo, Guru Singh, Donna De Lory, and Anoushka Shankar.
Hindu statesman Rajan Zed has applauded the efforts of Crow and other musicians to promote yoga for schoolchildren. In a statement in Nevada (USA) today, he urged other Hollywood and sports celebrities to come forward to help incorporate yoga in the lives of youth and children.
Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, also urged public schools to include yoga in their curriculum. Yoga was a mental and physical discipline whose traces went back to around 2,000 BCE, he pointed out.
Rajan Zed quoted Patanjali, author of the basic text Yoga Sutra, who said that yoga was a methodical effort to attain perfection, through the control of the different elements of human nature, physical and psychical.
The Yoga Revolution CD is reportedly a diverse 14-track mix including Irish folk, rock anthem, bilingual world music, 5,000 year-old Vedic chants over Hip Hop beats, reworked kirtan, etc.
