There have been several additions to www.mahasriyoga.com.
Pranayama: There are now three audio tracks on introduction to pranayama in Gujarati. I hope this is helpful for all the Gujarati seniors. Please do send your feedback as it will so helpful for future tracks.
Meditation: Yoga Nidra with Chakras and Bija Mantras. This guided meditation should be helpful in locating chakras and becoming more aware of them. Using the bija mantras increases sensitivity and purifies the chakras, making it a purification practice. This practice is familiar to some of you as we have done it together several times in our detailed introduction to chakras. Seniors can do this meditation as we have also done a simple, modified version without the names of the chakras–we focused on the specific areas in the spine.
Book Reviews: Hatha Yoga Pradipika by Swami Muktibodhananda is an outstanding essential read for serious yogis. Light on Yoga by Iyengar is a classic for 200 asanas, given in great detail by the master hatha yogi himself. The reviews also try to clarify the confusion and rivalry between hatha and raja yoga.
