Description and Table of Contents

"Asanas, Mudras and Bandhas - Awakening Ecstatic Kundalini" provides a practical approach for incorporating yoga postures and specialized inner physical maneuvers into a compact daily routine of practices that includes spinal breathing pranayama and deep meditation.

Kundalini awakening is covered with clarity, including a discussion of symptoms and specific methods for self-pacing and regulating the inner energies to provide for progressive and safe unfoldment of abiding inner silence, ecstatic bliss and outpouring divine love - the essential characteristics of rising enlightenment.

Yogani is the author of two landmark books on the world's most effective spiritual practices: "Advanced Yoga Practices - Easy Lessons for Ecstatic Living," a comprehensive user-friendly textbook, and "The Secrets of Wilder," a powerful spiritual novel.

The "AYP Enlightenment Series" makes these profound practices available for the first time in a series of concise instruction books. "Asanas, Mudras and Bandhas" is the fourth book in the series. The third in the series is "Tantra - Discovering the Power of Pre-Orgasmic Sex." The second is "Spinal Breathing Pranayama - Journey to Inner Space." The first is "Deep Meditation - Pathway to Personal Freedom."
