Restoring Prana Book Excerpt:

One of the most common issues clients face is lack of energy, vitality or prana and this book presents a simple yet revolutionary breathing approach to restore balance. Grounded in the yogic teachings, this text introduces the Buteyko breathing method as a more contemporary way of understanding the original intention of pranayama. Through extensive research, Robin Rothenberg establishes that as with Dr. Buteyko's breath retraining technique, the ancient yogis prescribed breathing less not more. Vedic science and physiology are broken down and explained in accessible ways. The book presents a new understanding and application of breathing to address a wide range of ailments, including COPD, asthma, hay-fever, autoimmune disorders, anxiety, sleep apnoea and neurological conditions.

The Yoga of Breath Book Excerpt:

For several thousand years, yogis have drawn on the powerful practice of pranayama, a technique of controlling the breath to maximize prana or life energy. Pranayama has been practiced to rejuvenate the body and as a means of self-study and self-transformation.

The Yoga of Breath is a guide to learning the fundamentals of pranayama and incorporating them into an existing yoga practice. Rosen's approach is easy to follow with step-by-step descriptions of breath and body awareness exercises accompanied by clear illustrations. The book also covers the history and philosophy of pranayama, offers useful practice tips, and teaches readers how to use props to enhance the exercises.

Pranayama Book Excerpt:

Yoga is a pride possession of our great Indian tradition. Yog knowledge can offer the lightest goal and bliss of life. An anthology of the discourses were expounded by Prashant Iyengar which have been presented here in a book form. Pranayama is a compound word meaning Prana 'Vital Energy' and Ayama 'Control and Regulation'. But it is not basically breath-control or breath-regulation. Pranayama needs a lot of study of breath usages, applications and Addressals by-on-in-with breath. Pranayama is the vital energy, which apparently distinguishes animate and inanimate or living and non-living creation. The animate things are believed to be breathing is characteristic to the bio-world or living creations. This breath oscillation in human beings signifies the existence of Prana in the embodiment. The departure of Prana marks the end of re-spiration and death of the living being. This book provides a classical and traditional approach towards life by breath control with different type of asnas. This differentiates between physiology of respiration that comes in body-science and physiology of breathing that occurs in the science of yog. According to the book the entire human embodiment is a breathing organism, even inner, outer, physical, psycho-mental, psychic, gross and subtle and esoteric organs, senses and constitutions.

Yoga The Way Of Life Book Excerpt:

"Arjun grew up in a simple family. He had two big brothers. Since childhood he’d had a helping nature. One day, he was playing football near his rented house with his friend. He was around 7 to 8 years old at that time. Suddenly, the ball rolled towards the pond; the pond was full of floating grass and he saw something moving. He found out that it was a child around 5 years old, struggling for her life. He knelt on the ground and held the arm of the girl. He put all his efforts to save her life. He didn’t have any idea about what he was doing as he could barely swim at that time. His father left him when he was 14 years old and it was very hard for his mother to accept that her husband had suddenly passed away. His mother and father didn't have a government or a private job. His mother went through some health issues after her husband passed away. His mother found it very difficult to let all of her sons study. He and his two brothers were very close in age, therefore he could not get any financial support or advice for his career. He started working in the field, helping his mother as well. He went to school when he got time. Through the grace of god he was able to study further. He did a part time job both in and outside the university and was able to finance his studies. Finally, in 2009, he completed his Masters of Science in Yoga from Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana, Bangalore, India."
