Description

FROM THE BACK COVER OF THE PAPERBACK EDITION: The premise of Yoga is simple. There is an outer reality and an inner one, and our nervous system is the doorway between them. Effective Yoga practices stimulate and open that doorway. The result? Peace, creativity, happiness, and a steady rise of ecstatic bliss radiating from within us... Advanced Yoga Practices (AYP) brings together the most effective methods of Yoga in a flexible integrated system that anyone can use. Instructions are given in plain English for deep meditation, spinal breathing pranayama, bodily manipulations (asanas, mudras and bandhas), tantric sexual practices, and other methods that are systematically applied to swing open the door of our nervous system to permanent higher experience. This is a non-sectarian approach that is compatible with any belief system or religious background. There are over 240 easy-to-follow lessons here, including many hands-on questions and answers between Yoga practitioners and the author. Whether you are a beginner or a veteran in Yoga, the AYP lessons can serve as a useful resource as you travel along your chosen path. Extensive reader feedback is provided in the book. Here are a few excerpts: "I searched for years to find a method of meditation that I can do. This is do-able." - AN "I've learned more about yoga in 4 months than in the previous 30 years of study." - SL "This is a very valuable inspiration for people taking up and maintaining meditation." - DB "Spinal breathing pranayama makes me feel so ecstatic, I want to do it all the time." - YM "After my first meditation session, I never felt so relaxed. You made me a believer." - JF "You make everything seem so simple, yet the practices are profound and dynamic." - SS "I wish I had this kind of information when I started some 15 years back." - AD "I love the way you explain everything. So simple, logical, and so safe." - RY "These are the best lessons I have read on yoga anywhere." - RD

Our customer reviews

Advanced Yoga Practices Volume 1 sets the next standard of experience-based open source integrated spiritual disciplines that optimizes progress and results with safety and stability. It empowers individual practitioners towards self-sufficiency and independence to make it possible to cultivate the latent and limitless potential of the human nervous system from the ground up while still engaged with the full demands of modern daily life. The transition from endless searching through obscure translations, unfounded theories, and desperate experimentation with formal and informal methods for years on end at the expense of ordinary life, and on to committed twice-daily practice, was made possible by AYP. Its framework is drawn from an all-encompassing knowledge base dating back and 'resting on the shoulder of giants,' yet modeled along an entirely unique way to put the practitioner first, along with all the inherent variation this entails. Far from standing as a monolith encompassed by fog, it is a living masterpiece aiming to genuinely empower its growing practitioner base so that the legacy continues to evolve. This sets the standard that has been long overdue, and it is made easily accessible to everyone.show more
