The Hatha Yoga Pradipika Book Review:

This is a large print edition of The Hatha Yoga Pradipika offering clear easy to read version. This edition offers text printed in fot size 14. Hatha Yoga Pradipika is a classical text describing Hatha Yoga. It is the oldest surviving text on Hatha Yoga. Swami Swatmarama, a disciple of Swami Goraknath, wrote the text, drawing upon previous texts and his own experiences. While the text describes asanas (postures), purifying practices (shatkarma), mudras (finger and hand positions), bandhas (locks), and pranayama (breath exercises), it also explains that the purpose of Hatha Yoga is the awakening of kundalini (subtle energy), advancement to Raja Yoga, and the experience of deep meditative absorption known as samadhi. Yogi Swatmarama was a 15th and 16th century yogic sage in India. He is best known for compiling the yoga manual Hatha Pradipika or Light on Hatha Yoga. Swatmarama maitains throughout the text that Hatha Yoga's true purpose is the arousal of the Kundalini, until perfection in Raja Yoga is achieved, i.e. liberation.

Hatha Yoga Pradipika Book Review:

The Hatha Yoga Pradipika, authored in the 15th century is one of the most well-known texts on physical yoga. This translation offers unique perspectives and insight from Sri T. Krishnamacharya, who had perhaps the most influence in physical yoga in the modern era. Drawing upon extensive notes of private studies with Krishnamacharya, his long time student, A. G. Mohan, presents critical analysis unavailable in any other translation to date. This translation includes summaries, notes on which practices may be more or less useful or even harmful, and comparisons to the Gheranda Samhita. This book is a worthwhile read and companion to any serious yoga aspirant, especially those interested in knowing what one of the most influential yogis of the modern times had to say on the esoteric practices of hatha yoga: on pranayama, mudras, and bandhas.

Kundalini Hatha Yoga Pradipika Book Review:

These are the details of Hatha Yoga as practiced by Matsyendra and Goraksha Mahayogins. This is not asana postures yoga but it includes that as the preliminary process. It describes a process which Shiva taught as kundalini manipulation for subtle body transformation with practical application of the raja yoga process of how to remaining introverted while being externally occupied.I did my best based on kundalini yoga and inSelf Yoga(tm) practice in this life, to expound the details given by Swatmarama Guruji, the author of the original Sanskrit text which we know as the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. Fortunately, I practiced kapalabhati/bhastrika pranayama breath infusion for forty years and then discovered that Swatmarama listed that breath technique as the very best for yogis who were interested in kundalini manipulation for subtle body transformation. I practice naad sound resonance meditation which he listed as being the very best contemplation procedure. In this book I reveal secrets which Swatmarama shared as well as my realizations about the same.

Original Yoga Book Review:

Widely respected yoga teacher and author Richard Rosen draws on ancient yoga encyclopedias to explain how yoga was practiced before it became popular in the West. He compares the three main existing sources known to yoga scholars to describe how complex and rich the practice of yoga once was. It included systematic teachings on personal hygiene, good health, and good relationships, and other practices of yoga that went far beyond just the physical postures. Each section of the book offers a guided practice session of ancient poses and breathing techniques to enable readers to connect to the roots of their yoga and to offer a framework from which to understand the sequences they use in their regular sessions.

The Gheranda Samhita A Treatise on Hatha Yoga Book Review:

The “Gheranda Samhita” is a Hindu Yoga text written in Sanskrit and one of the three classic texts of hatha yoga.

Contents include: “Introduction”, “Purification”, “Asanas”, “Mudras”, “Pratyahara”, “Pranayama”, “Dhyana”, “Samadhi”, and “Contributors”. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on yoga.

Anatomy of Hatha Yoga Book Review:

his book combines the perspectives of a dedicated yogi with that of a former anatomy professor and research associate at two major American medicine schools. He has set himself the ambitious goal of combining the modern scientific under- standing of anatomy and physiology with the ancient practice of hatha yoga. The result of an obvious labour of love, the book explains hatha yoga in demystified, scientific terms while at the same time honouring its traditions. It should go a long way in helping yoga achieve the scientific recognition it deserves. Useful as both a textbook and a reference work, this is a book that all serious yoga teachers and practitioners will want on their shelves.

Ha ha Yoga Book Review:

In this study, philosopher and hatha practitioner Mikel Burley places the soteriological system of hatha-yoga within its proper context, drawing attention to its continuity with Vedic religion, its initiatory pedagogical structure, and to the theoretical underpinnings of hatha practice. In particular, he examines the complex notion of a `subtle bodily matrix`--comprising vital channels (nadis), centres (cakras) and forces (prana)--which is so crucial to the discipline, this matrix being held to form, as it were, a bridge between the gross physical and mental spheres. Use is made of a wide range of source materials, including seminal texts in the hatha tradition such as the Hatha-Yoga-Pradipika and Gheranda-Samhita, as well as primary and secondary works from related streams of Indian thought. The author`s approach is both scholarly and accessible, making the study suitable for specialists, practitioners and general readers alike. Hatha-yoga is concerned with the most fundamental of matters: the development of an ethical and spiritually-oriented appreciation of humanity, the cultivation of maximal health and perceptual acuity, and the quest for Self-realisation. Absorbing and penetrating, Hatha-Yoga: Its Context, Theory and Practice makes a valuable contribution to our understanding of this subject.
