A follow-up to THE YOGA OF BREATH, this book with instructional CD is for the growing number of committed yoga students who are looking for more sophisticated breathing techniques to accompany their deepening yoga practice. Some kind of pranayama exercise is a regular feature in most yoga classes, and this book brings the serious practitioner to a more advanced level. Among the many yoga books now available, this is the only guide to advanced pranayama practices - from an author well-known through Yoga Journal and yoga conferences for his expertise in this area.
Topics include guidance with props and postures, a suggested practice schedule, and breathing techniques for
* revitalizing energy in the entire body
* stimulating and awakening the brain and bringing energy to the sense organs, especially the eyes, ears, and tongue
* bringing energy down the spine, exploring the central channel
* enlivening the inner organs for overall health
The enclosed instructional CD by the author offers a variety of practices so that the listener can create her own pranayama class, with guidance from the author in the appendix. This book also includes twenty-five line drawings that illustrate key poses.
