Yoga Mind and Body has garnered much praise from senior Sivananda yoga teachers worldwide, and this new book retains all the features that made the existing book so successful - clear instructions on each pose demonstrated step by step, common mistakes shown and explained, and a list of the physical and mental benefits of each pose - together with a fresh, new design; beautiful specially commissioned step-by-step photography of the yoga poses; and a number of added features to make the book even more accessible and user-friendly. A new chapter on The Many Benefits of Yoga gives a fascinating and valuable overview of the ways that yoga can maintain or restore the health of the body. With the help of specially commissioned anatomical drawings, it explains how yoga poses work on and benefit the body, including their effect on different types of muscle and the connective tissue (the vast network of elastic tissue that encloses and connects muscles and organs); how poses can help to stimulate our hormonal system; the vital role they play in calming the nervous system, helping you to relax and deal with stress; and the powerful effect yoga has in oxygenating the whole body, and especially the brain, which needs plentiful supplies of oxygen to function properly. In the chapter Proper Exercise, the yoga poses are arranged in the order you should practice them in, and poses are clearly labeled beginner, intermediate, or advanced, helping the reader to progress at his or her own pace. At the end of the book, in another new feature that yoga students will welcome, there are specially devised programs of yoga poses for beginners, intermediate, and advanced students of 20, 40 and 60 minutes each.

Much of what is known as yoga today emphasizes physical postures and exercises to increase flexibility and help relaxation. But in fact, yoga has its roots in centuries of rigorous investigation and research in the East to develop an understanding of human consciousness and its potential. In Yoga , Osho explains the meaning of some of the most important Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, an early "scientist of the soul" who is credited with being the father of Raja Yoga, or the "royal path" of yoga that uses physical postures and breath primarily as a means to achieve higher states of consciousness. With a fresh translation of these ancient texts, and unique Osho insights into the modern mind and its psychology, Patanjali comes to life on the pages with an approach to using yoga for greater self-understanding that is absolutely relevant to our times. An invaluable resource for beginning or experienced yoga practitioners, and for anyone who seeks to better understand the intricate and powerful relationship that exists between body and mind.

A guide to achieving inner balance through yoga. Yoga, according to Osho, is not only a system of belief but is also a scientific methodology that heightens awareness and makes it possible to live in a constant state of happiness, harmony and fulfillment. For many, yoga is merely a way to keep fit. Osho, however, believes that yogic postures are but an infinitely small part of an 'entire recipe for living'. In a language both fluid and graceful, Osho explains how yoga can transform one's life. The reader is told how he can first transcend the body, then the mind and, finally, how he can 'fall into your own being'. 'Drop all the outer goals and move inwards,' says Osho. Yoga, for him, is not about control or discipline but about achieving a sense of balance. Yoga: The Science of Living, an outcome of Osho's talks, is not merely a commentary on Patanjali's ancient treatise. It is enriched with insights from Osho's awakened consciousness. Defying traditional norms of spirituality, Osho punctuates the voyage of self-discovery with an irreverent sense of humour. Enriching the book are questions from various people, keen to discover themselves. Osho's refreshingly candid answers make for delightful reading and would offer a solution to those trapped in similar situations. Insightful and profound, Yoga: The Science of Living is an invaluable guide for those looking for inner balance and peace.

The popular perception of yoga in the West remains for the most part that of a physical fitness program, largely divorced from its historical and spiritual roots. The essays collected here provide a sense of the historical emergence of the classical system presented by Patajali, a careful examination of the key elements, overall character and contemporary relevance of that system (as found in the Yoga Sutra) and a glimpse of some of the tradition's many important ramifications in later Indian religious history.

Liberation,' says Osho, 'means coming back home.' According to Osho, 'Life is nothing but an expression of silence.' We come out of silence, but then lose our way. In order to experience this silence again and attain liberation, we need to rediscover the path back to our pure being. Only then can the cycle be complete; then will we be able to reach kaivalya, a state which Osho tells us is higher than either moksha or nirvana. The key is simple: we must not identify with our bodies and minds, as all identification is outwards, and we are going on an inner journey. And Osho emphasizes, as always, the importance of combining intelligence, awareness and humour on this journey. In addition to speaking on the Yoga sutras of Patanjali, Osho addresses questions about life and how to live it without fear of pain, old age or death. Osho's answers are never the same, for he doesn't answer-he responds. As he has often said himself, 'Your questions may be the same, but the answers of a Buddha always have a new nuance to them, a new flavour, a new fragrance.

Says Osho: 'Patanjali takes the whole complexity of the human being into account Never before and never after has such a comprehensive system evolved.' Drawing on the teachings of Patanjali, Osho gives an entirely new perspective on the fundamental questions of life, the nature of heaven, religion and God. For Osho it is not a question of being 'good' or 'bad', or of a God in the sky, but of each individual becoming aware of his being and attaining kaivalya the ultimate state of enlightenment when the meditator goes beyond all desire. This process draws on the inner science of yoga. Replete with anecdotes, and including a series of questions and answers that directly address the existential anxieties of a contemporary readership, this book by Osho is a must-read for all those who want to explore the mysteries of life.

Shadow Yoga, Chaya Yoga

Shadow Yoga, Chaya Yoga

In Shadow Yoga, Chaya Yoga, author Shandor Remete shows how to utilize yoga to enhance all aspects of physical and spiritual health. Focusing specifically on the hatha tradition, the book delves deep into original Sanskrit texts, explaining the theoretical foundation of yoga in clear, encouraging language. Remete describes the "shadows" noted by classical yoga teachers that block the student, and shows ways to move beyond them. The book covers the key concepts of traditional yogathe marmas, chakras, vayus (sources of energy), and nadis (flows of energy through the body)before turning to the yogic techniques that improve their condition and functioningasana (poses), nauli (abdominal exercises), pranayama (breathing), mudra (gestures), and laya (absorptions). It closes with illustrated sequences of the most important asanas. Shadow Yoga also discusses various little-understood, oft-neglected aspects of yogic training, such as the role of marma points (acupuncture-like energy points) and the influence of the zodiac. Detailed drawings of the body's energy system and its links to these elemental and planetary forces provide a visual guide to these largely unknown areas of yoga. This knowledge, considered essential in Indian yogic traditions, has been almost entirely lost in modern Western schools of yoga. Author Remete restores that information in this beautifully designed book. From the Trade Paperback edition.
