From the Jacket :
Swara yoga is an ancient science of pranic body rhythms and explores how prana can be controlled through the breath. Traditionally a closely guarded science, taught only through direct transmission from guru to disciple, very little has ever been written about it.
In this book the theory behind swara yoga is discussed, including the topics of prana, nadis and charkas. In the practice section the techniques of swara yoga are given in detail. The last section contains the original Sanskrit text of the Shiva Swarodaya with an English translation.
Swara Yoga is suitable text for advanced yoga practitioners and yoga teachers. Line drawings, charts and illustrations are included.
Swami Muktibodhananda Saraswati was born in 1959 in Melbourne, Australia. From childhood she was drawn to the disciplines of yogic sadhana and ashram life. At the age of seventeen she went to India to live with her guru, Swami Satyananda Saraswati.
Under the guidance of her guru, she has done research Swara Yoga – The Tantric Science of Brain Breathing and a commentary on the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. She is well as traditional aspects of yoga.
In 1985 Swami Muktibodhananda returned to Australia. She now lives and teaches yoga in Brisbane.
