Book Description

Dec 20 2004
The premise of Yoga is simple. There is an outer reality and an inner one, and our nervous system is the doorway between them. Effective Yoga practices stimulate and open that doorway. The result? Peace, creativity, happiness, and a steady rise of ecstatic bliss radiating from within us...

Advanced Yoga Practices (AYP) brings together the most effective methods of Yoga in a flexible integrated system that anyone can use. Instructions are given in plain English for deep meditation, spinal breathing pranayama, bodily manipulations (asanas, mudras and bandhas), tantric sexual practices, and other methods that are systematically applied to swing open the door of our nervous system to permanent higher experience. This is a non-sectarian approach that is compatible with any belief system or religious background.

There are over 240 easy-to-follow lessons here, including many hands-on questions and answers between Yoga practitioners and the author. Whether you are a beginner or a veteran in Yoga, the AYP lessons can serve as a useful resource as you travel along your chosen path.

Extensive reader feedback is provided in the book. Here are a few excerpts:

“I searched for years to find a method of meditation that I can do. This is do-able.” – AN

“I've learned more about yoga in 4 months than in the previous 30 years of study.” – SL

“This is a very valuable inspiration for people taking up and maintaining meditation.” – DB

“Spinal breathing pranayama makes me feel so ecstatic, I want to do it all the time.” – YM

“After my first meditation session, I never felt so relaxed. You made me a believer.” – JF

“You make everything seem so simple, yet the practices are profound and dynamic.” – SS

“I wish I had this kind of information when I started some 15 years back.” – AD

“I love the way you explain everything. So simple, logical, and so safe.” – RY

“These are the best lessons I have read on yoga anywhere.” – RD

Advanced Yoga Practices-Easy Lessons for Ecstatic Living

The philosophy of yoga teaches that serenity and ecstatic joy are the natural state of all human beings. Experiencing this state of living is not a matter of building something new, but rather of setting free what is already there. In Advanced Yoga Practices-Easy Lessons for Ecstatic Living (AYP), Yogani provides instruction in a series of ancient yogic practices that go to the core of that liberation.
Surprisingly, the techniques presented in Advanced Yoga Practices are not difficult. Unlike hatha yoga, there are no elaborate postures, no dramatic twistings and stretchings. AYP contains techniques for breathing and meditation that gently but powerfully tone up the nervous system, raise energy, and liberate our natural serenity and joy. Also surprising is that Yogani, the author, presents this information as a non-sectarian mechanical process-follow the procedures and the results happen. Just as when you lift weights your muscles gradually become stronger regardless of whether you're a Hindu, Muslim, Christian, or Atheist, when you practice the AYP methods, serenity and joy are gradually liberated regardless of religious or philosophical belief. And, as with physical training, AYP methods recognize that individuals develop at their own pace. Students are constantly reminded to practice at a level that maintains a comfortable balance between inner development and outer life.
The book compiles dialogs from the AYP online discussion group and adds a substantial amount of new material not found online. The format consists of techniques taught by Yogani, questions from group members, and Yogani's replies.

There was a time when, in order to find the inner secrets of Yoga,
you had no option but to dedicate your life to the yogic path and spend years as a disciple among those who would slowly reveal those secrets to you. Fortunately, Yogani has done all that for you. He has gathered these secrets the slow and hard way, and presents them all in a single easily-accessible book.
The book is a comprehensive exposition of the higher techniques of yoga and tantra. The question-and answer sections are based on real questions from a yahoo group; this makes them very real and informative.
In revealing what is usually kept secret, Yogani pulls out all the stops. The book reveals heavy-duty yoga techniques, such as Advanced Kechari, which is, as far as I know, nowhere else available in print at this time.
In a departure from the more paternal Guru Tradition, Yogani teaches in athe tradition of a Yogic Scientist. He presents the known material, without requiring you to participate in a myth of his omniscience. You progress under the advice to pace yourself; you are invited to be your own guru, judging when you are ready for the more powerful techniques and holding back if you temporarily find them to be too much.
This is not to say that the book is too advanced for the less advanced yoga practitioner. Everyone can benefit from the many gentle methods which make up the main body of the book. But for advanced yoga practitioners in particular, the book is worth its weight in gold.

5.0 out of 5 stars AYP - a must have for all levels of practice Feb. 21 2005
By Just Me
'Advanced Yoga Practices' is a very practical and simple guidebook that can help anyone build an effective yoga routine. It teaches yoga in a way that is unintimidating (everything is explained clearly and simply) and informative. It is perfect for busy people who cannot spare hours for yoga but at the same time, ironically, are most in need of its effects: increased energy levels, improved health and memory, peace of mind and plain ol' joy of life often lost in everyday struggles. What you will learn from this book is how to do yoga in the time you have available for it in a way that maximizes its benefits. More advanced yoga students will understand better some very advanced techniques and probably will be tempted to try out new exercises with far-reaching effects.
Using the methods of 'Advanced Yoga Practices' I was able to reduce my eye-strain that was causing me significant problems and improve my eyesight and energy level. I am really sorry this book was not with me many years ago and that I only recently started to benefit from this knowledge.

5.0 out of 5 stars The book that changed my life Feb. 20 2005
By A Customer
This book is originally an online series of lessons as a yahoo group which I came across at this crucial juncture of my life and it has been the TURNING POINT of my life.
I was like any other common individual with doubts about the truth of the spiritual life doubting whether it is REAL or not. I wasnt sure how to clarify this given the fact that I am regular software professional with 9-5 job and no time to go and search for sages/rushis who would clarify my doubts. I couldnt even leave my regular life for a monastic life either because I didnt know whether it was REAL or not. Even if I go search and find some sage, how would I be assured that he is speaking the truth? Could I question him? Would such a learned person answer my ignorant questions not to mention whether he would have time do so or not. And there is the risk that such spiritual knowledge can be diluted with meaningless religious myths created by some selfish gurus who want dominance. In this confused state what is the solution for a normal person like me? How would I know the truth?
Finally the light came in the form of Yogani (the author of this book) and his online lessons. I just cant describe my happiness after I found these lessons. Each and every doubt that I had from childhood about life, god, spirituality has been clarified and still there is a lot I am learning everyday from this great person. This book is a replica of those online lessons with lot more knowledge added to it and written in a detailed form. I am generally the kind of individual who doesnt accept anything if I dont see the proper reason behind it.
