Welcome to Practical Naam Sessions with Chris Merrill

Chris Merrill is founder of Practical Naam, a production company whose music division creates beautiful, original music tracks and practical teaching aides such as specific tracks for yoga, meditation, breath work and prayer. As a yogi, performing artist, teacher and music producer, Chris combines these talents to create teacher and practitioner driven tools that are relevant, musically interesting and practical.

Practical Naam has released 18 albums from 8 different series', each dedicated to a specific aspect of Harmonyum Healing, Naam Yoga, Shakti Naam Yoga, and Universal Kabbalah as taught by Dr. Joseph Michael Levry. Each track is specifically designed to meet a need in the repertoire of a yoga teacher or student, holistic health practitioner, or just someone who loves music, and details such as track purpose, track use, tempo, track length, breath, repetitions, mystical wisdom and more are taken into account to create a truly useful and practical tool for teaching, for practicing and for authentic spiritual use.


Each Sunday at 12:00pm PST Chris breaks down the science and spirituality behind some of the music in intimate live sessions. This includes education, meditation experience, and sharing about the experience.

Each session is recorded and available for viewing after the fact as part of this channel.
