The wisdom of Yogic techniques date back to ancient times. In those days, Yoga was associated with religion and was considered as the path to attain a state of bonding with the Divine. However, in present times, Yoga has been widely accepted as the answer to a stressful lifestyle.
Seen against this backdrop, Transformational Yoga stands as an unique and innovative method that makes one aware of the existence of the five physical bodies within us, awakens them and purifies the impurities lying within.
This book focuses on transformational yoga asanas at the basic level. The postures described have been specifically selected for beginners. However, perfection of these asanas can only be attained through rigorous practice and discipline of the physical, mental and emotional aspects of the body. The author will provide further yogic techniques for the advanced level practitioners in his forthcoming books.
I am thankful to Ms Annshu S. Mishra and Sterling publishers for helping me in bringing out this book.
Transformational Yoga emphasises that every individual has the capacity to experience pure consciousness by practicing certain yogic postures and techniques that can purify the impurities lying within the life energy centers of the body, awaken and activate them for spiritual uplift and allow the body to strengthen itself from the energy thus released. This book projects such transformational yogic asanas and have carefully selected only for beginners.
Arranged sequentially along with coloured photographs, these asanas carry short descriptions on the method to be followed, lay out benefits to be obtained by practising them, provides short and illustrated explanations on chakras, yogic bodies and prana, and discusses the use of mantras and pranayama in releasing stress. This easy-to-follow book on yoga will appeal its readers for its lucid text, simplistic and practical approach and aesthetic presentation.
