The yogic healing arts of India - a tradition that dates back at least 5,000 years - postulate that all illness is the result of a disturbance in the prana, or human energy field. On Healing Mantras, Shri Anandi Ma, respected master of the Kundalini Maha Yoga lineage, chants three mantras said to reestablish balance specifically on the level of the prana. These chants can, according to the traditional understanding, impart a powerful healing impulse to the entire human system - body, mind, and spirit. The chants are performed with Dileepji Pathak, accompanied by tamboura, flute, and violin. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Shri Anandi Ma, Shri Dileepji Pathak.

Chakra Yoga Vol 2 is a 50-minute yoga class suitable for those with knowledge of basic yoga practices. This class naturally progresses from Chakra Yoga Vol 1. It has been devised to help balance and cleanse the chakras and increase awareness between the physical body and the energetic body. The energy that travels around the body is known as prana; prana is our vital life force and is also the universal energy. Prana is something shared and experienced by all; it creates the bond between us and the entire universe. Prana travels around the body through a network of energy channels known as Nadis. In certain locations the prana becomes denser and spins in a clockwise direction. These are the chakras. To help us maintain good health physically and emotionally, it is important that energy does not become stagnant or spin too fast. This yoga class will help to balance and cleanse the chakras and encourage pranic energy to travel freely around the body. The postures included in this class have been carefully selected to stimulate the seven main chakras that are positioned between the base of the spine and the crown of the head. The class combines yoga postures and visualisation techniques to direct awareness towards the chakras, helping to balance and cleanse them.

In this series of informal talks given at his studio, Richard Freeman, the director of The Yoga Workshop in Boulder, Colorado, shares his knowledge on a wide range of the more subtle aspects of yoga. In Gazing Drsti, we explore the practice of gazing (or ´´drsti´´). Placement of the gaze on a single point helps the mind to flow into focused meditation. Gazing is also an important part of the integrated movement that links yoga postures together. Prana and apana are two complementary types of movement coming from the core of the body. Prana is the upward, expanding, blossoming movement characteristic of inhaling. Apana is the downward, contracting, rooting movement characteristic of exhaling. When first practicing yoga, the attention will flow with either one of the inner breaths. But as Freeman explains in The Process of Yoga, feeling and expressing only one of them at a time externalizes the attention into discursive thinking. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Freeman.

If you had within reach the energy of the universe - the chi that permeates all things - you could create the health you want anytime, anywhere. In Acu-Yoga, you will learn a safe, natural self-healing system that regulates the flow of chi utilizing the practices of yoga and acupressure. The unrestricted flow of chi (or prana, as it is called in India) is the key to radiant health - regulating and balancing the entire body, including the emotions and mental functions. When the flow of chi is obstructed within the energy system of the body, the resulting imbalance can affect every aspect of your health. The Acu-Yoga program combines step-by-step yoga postures, breathing, and fingertip massage applied to the body´s vital points to discharge harmful stress and toxins from your body. In seconds you can eliminate headaches, relieve lower back fatigue, induce a calming state, and recharge your body´s reserves of vital energy. For more than 20 years, Dr. Michael Reed Gach has taught this ´´science of vitality´´ to thousands around the world - people with no training in yoga or acupressure - and helped them gain control over their health. Discover this practical dimension of self-care with the powerful techniques in Michael Reed Gach´s Acu-Yoga. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Reed Gach.

These essays represent the process of finding my own path in yoga while respecting the tradition and lineage from which it came. Practice tips are included with each essay. Dharma is our gradual awakening to the truth and the recognition of our unique path. Dharma is not something I chose; it chose me. These are some of my insights over 25 years of intensive study, practice, and teaching of yoga. Much of it centers on hatha yoga (postures and breath work) because that is the main practice in the West. Like other branches of yoga, it is a training of mind and heart so that we experience life with grace and equanimity. Insight arises from continual observation of the mind (citta) and attunement to energy flow (prana). May these words guide you toward finding your dharma. 1. Language: English.

Yoga Flow with Tim Maples contains three different progressive audio yoga classes. The classes have been devised, lay a foundation, and establish a sound vinyasa yoga practice. Vinyasa is the term given to flowing yoga practices, and moving in such a way brings a deep sense of connection to the breath, allows you to move with freedom and expression, increases mobility, strength, and provides a cardio workout. ´´Fundamentals of Flow´´ is a 50-minute flowing vinyasa yoga class with a focus on correct technique and the ujjayi breath. The class had been devised to introduce and then develop a solid foundation in basic vinyasa yoga technique. ´´Flow Alignment´´ is a 60-minute flowing vinyasa yoga class with a focus on alignment. When the body is correctly aligned, it encourages more effective and safer movement, a greater flow of prana (vital life force) throughout the body, and increases the benefits. ´´Vinyasa Flow by Tim Maples´´ is a 75-minute flowing vinyasa yoga class with a focus on alignment, breath, and continuous movement. This class combines everything learned in the previous two classes and provides a challenging vinyasa class for an experienced practitioner. The sessions have been devised and narrated by Tim Maples, a highly respected and inspiring yoga teacher and leadership coach. Tim was first introduced to the yoga of Indra Devi in 1975. Both a longtime practitioner and an experienced teacher, Tim´s Vinyasa Flow classes draw on many influences including iyengar, ashtanga, and traditional raja yoga precepts. These are based on four principles of self-awareness, breath, alignment, and flow. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tim Maples.
