Advanced Yoga Practices
Easy Lessons for Ecstatic Living
Welcome to Advanced
Yoga Practices (AYP). This website introduces nearly 1000 instructional lessons and additions, and
many other resources that have been
developed and enhanced since 2003. Join the thousands of people who have
been using these easy-to-follow teachings, and begin to incorporate
powerful advanced yoga practices into your daily life in a practical, safe,
and results-oriented way.
The AYP techniques act directly through heart,
mind, body, breath and sexuality. Practices taught include
Deep Meditation using an efficient universal mantra, advanced Spinal
Breathing Pranayama methods,
and an integration of Hatha, Kundalini and
Tantra techniques, all for steadily cultivating inner peace and
enlightenment through an easy daily practice. Everyone is encouraged to go
at their own speed in taking on new practices. Much attention is devoted in
AYP to developing skill in "self-pacing," with the aim of assisting every
practitioner to become self-sufficient with these powerful tools that
cultivate human spiritual transformation.
If you find the introductory resources on this website helpful
on your path, consider taking action to go much deeper, greatly benefiting
yourself and many others. AYP is sustained and continues to move forward as
a dynamic global community of practitioners, teachers and volunteers through
AYP Plus subscriptions,
Retreats and Teacher Training Courses, and
However you choose to get involved, your participation and support are
much appreciated, accelerating your own spiritual progress while helping to
share the AYP teachings and programs with many around the world.
The author, Yogani, is an American spiritual scientist with
50 years experience in
blending powerful yoga methods with the modern lifestyle. The focus here is on revealing
practices that work, not on promoting a sectarian view. All are invited to join in,
regardless of background or level of skill in spiritual practice.
This is a flexible, scientific approach rather than a rigid, arbitrary one.
The author has no desire for guru status - only to have the joy of making a
contribution to helping the formerly secret disciplines of
effective spiritual practice become open
and useful for everyone. He wishes to remain anonymous, preserving a quiet life in practices. AYP is
not about the author. It is about all who long for knowledge.
It is hoped you will find the AYP
teachings and programs to be useful resources as you travel along
your chosen spiritual path. Practice wisely, and enjoy!
The guru is in you.
