Today Musician/Actor/Yoga Instructor Lana Sugarman joins me on Cue To Cue today! I am elated to bring this interview to you! Lana is someone who has taken her creativity and combined it with her passion for music and yoga in a way that inspires, excites and encourages me to step out further on the skinny branch. She looks at life with a sparkle in her eye and has many different creative avenues that inspire her. She says is coming to embrace the fact that she is someone who likes to peruse a variety of creative projects and is starting to find the balance of tackling one project at a time and allowing herself to put other interests on a low simmer and come back to them when she is ready as to not overextend herself.

Lana’s is currently gearing up for the release of her second album, Reverence. She is having a CD release party on April 22 and Downward Dog Yoga Studios and welcomes anyone who is curious about kirtan music, mantra Chanting/meditation and getting more involved, educated and celebrate the release of her new album!

In this episode, we discuss how she got her start in kirtan music and how she learned to embrace the uniqueness of her interest and what creative avenues she has yet to explore that she would like to spend time with, what quote best describes her, her outlook on life and how she view the world.
