Lesson 239 - Spinal Breathing Pranayama and Asanas

From: Yogani
Date: Mon Dec 27, 2004 0:34am

New Visitors: It is recommended you read from the beginning of the web archive, as previous lessons are prerequisite to this one. The first lesson is, "Why This Discussion?"


"... One of the best tests of spinal breathing is its known curing influence on kundalini imbalances. I have lost count of how many folks who have come here with kundalini imbalances (some very serious) and had them relieved almost immediately upon beginning spinal breathing. I had that experience myself many years ago, after having worked with many types of pranayama and kumbhaka. I have found that spinal breathing is by far the most advanced pranayama out there, whether it be the basic version, or variations involving other elements of practice such as yoni mudra kumbhaka, chin pump (with or without kumbhaka), spinal bastrika, etc. ..."

"... On asanas, the primary focus in the lessons has been on sitting practices because there has not been much written on the development and integration of sitting practices. We have taken some good steps toward filling in the gaps on that in the lessons. It has really needed to be done. Asanas have not been ignored - only put in perspective in relation to the full range of yoga practices as summarized in Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. What we are seeking is a balance of all the best methods to achieve maximum progress. ..."
