Product Description

Prana and Pranayama is a comprehensive text on the classical philosophy of prana, life force, and pranayama, the expansion and control of the life force. It provides a complete description of the science of pranayama as it is presented in the classical texts and as taught in the Satyananda Yoga tradition by Bihar School of Yoga. The first part of the book explores the theory of prana and its related yogic concepts : koshas, nadis, chakras and mantras. Secondly it expands upon respiratory physiology and current research undertaken by science on pranayama. In the practical section, specific guidelines for practicing pranayama are given, using detailed instructions and illustrations. Throughout the text scriptural sources further enhance the reader's understanding, bringing to light the original essence and intent of these classical teachings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ecellant 10 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have a few different books on pranayama but this is by far the best. It goes into more detail about prana and deeper also into the practicalities of pranayama and the effects.
As always from the Bihar School, it is clearly written, well laid out with the first part being theory followed by the practical applications in the second half. Saying that, this is not a subject for the absolute beginner in yoga and as is clearly stated pranayama must be given huge respect and is not to be toyed with. It can give great benefits but abused it can cause great damage. I also think its very useful from a teaching point of view.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful 2 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a useful text for anyone who wants to learn about pranayama in more detail. It describes the theory and practices clearly and lucidly. It's got a lot in it with useful advice. I would recommend it but its quite scientific in its tone.
