Heart Yoga

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=558393&cjsku=558393...
***WINNER, 2010 Spirituality & Practice Best Spiritual Book Award Yoga In Heart Yoga, renowned spiritual writer and Sacred Activist Andrew Harvey and longtime yoga teacher Karuna Erickson present a vision of hatha yoga practice that links ancient spiritual traditions to contemporary life. Including excerpts of poetic sacred writing from mystical sages through the ages, the book reminds readers that the purpose of yoga is not to improve one's physical health or even to achieve peace of mind (although these results may be achieved along the way), but to reach a state of unity with the divine, the goal of mystics from all traditions. With detailed descriptions and photographs of fifty yoga poses and their alchemical effects on the body and consciousness, Heart Yoga presents yoga as a simple meditative practice that enables the practitioner to dwell in the heart and experience the bliss of union with the sacred power underlying all of life. The book explains how to prepare for Heart Yoga and describes the Five Great Joys that are part of the path. Included are the authors' own compelling stories of their individual journeys along the path of yoga: stories of suffering, transcendence, and joy that both inspire and enlighten. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Yin Yoga

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=496505&cjsku=496505...
Yoga as practiced in the U.S. is almost exclusively yang or muscular in nature. The yin aspect of yoga (using postures that stretch connective tissue) is virtually unknown but vital for a balanced approach to physical and mental health. Paul Grilley's Yin Yoga - Outline of a Quiet Practice shares how to practice postures in a yin way. Grilley includes an explanation of Modern Meridian Theory, which states that the meridians of acupuncture theory are currents flowing through the connective tissues of the body. Yin Yoga is specifically designed to address these tissues. The two major differences between a yin and a yang yoga practice are that yin postures should be done with the muscles relaxed and should be held a long time. This is because connective tissue does not stretch like muscle and will not respond well to brief stresses. In addition, Yin Yoga better prepares people for meditation. For yoga practitioners looking for something beyond physical postures. Yin Yoga addresses the deeper spiritual dimensions of yoga, with helpful sections on chakras, breathing exercises, and meditation. Illustrated with thirty-five black and white photos of Yin Yoga postures and six color illustrations of the body's connective tissue and meridian lines.

Sahaja Yoga

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1486755&cjsku=1486755...
The first full-length examination of Sahaja Yoga, a new religious movement led by Sri Mataji Nirmala Devi, which claims up to one hundred thousand members from around the world.This is the first full-length examination of Sahaja Yoga, a new religious movement led by Sri Mataji Nirmala Devi, which claims up to one hundred thousand members from around the world. The authorexamines how newcomers adopt new practices and allegiances on becoming full-time members, and how most develop a radically new awareness of 'spiritual vibrations' as a result of the regular meditation suggested by Sri Mataji. To do so, she reflects upon current theories of socialisation, in particular building up understandings about new social worlds than has so far been appreciated. This accessible and informative account is of particular value to scholars working in the study of religions and new religious movements, and of interest to those working on theories of socialisation. However, the book is required reading for anyone who wants to know more about the contemporary religious landscape.

Yoga Dogs

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=2256539&cjsku=2256539...
Inspired by a friend's mastiff that would imitate its master's morning yoga routine, photographer Daniel Borris created Yoga Dogs , a full-color collection of45 different dogs and puppies doing human yoga poses. Don't worry: No animals were harmed during the making of the images; instead, their extreme flexibility can be chalked up to some very effective digital trickery. The results are silly and curious all at once, and the inherently humorous pictures are complemented by information about the poses and some funny and punny canine meditations. Praise for Yoga Dogs: This delightful book can best be described as a fresh and highly entertaining visual treat Shutterbug magazine "If your family likes dogs, or yoga, or better yet, both, you'll enjoy Yoga Dogs " -About.com Family Fitness

Yoga Meditation

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=2144816&cjsku=2144816...
Practised authentically, yoga provides us with a starting-point for meditation, which awakens us to our oneness with true reality. This book demonstrates how to use a wide range of yoga postures, purification practices, breathing exercises and meditation practices as a portal to a higher consciousness - with all the everyday benefits implied in that phrase: an enhanced sense of peace, love, joy, happiness, harmony and personal fulfilment. Drawing upon the tradition of Kriya Yoga - the goal of which is to attune one's individual consciousness with the Divine, or Universal, Consciousness - Stephen Sturgess shows us how to progress beyond the supple body to the vital, contented mind. His approach is based on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, whose wisdom punctuates the book. If we learn how to interiorize our concentration, and magnetize the spine and brain via the chakras, life energy is drawn back to the original centres of discharge and experienced as light, taking us into the consciousness of the Self. This book will enable you to draw infinite energy into your body, mind and soul. And you will realize your full potential for creative thought and action.
