Yogic Pranayama (Breathing For Long Life and Good Health)
Description
About The Book

Pranayama helps in recovery and restoration of good health.

This is a complete one-of-its-kind book on the widely known yet little understood science and practice of yogic pranayama. Written specially for the uninitiated, the book traces the origin of pranayama, clarifies some of the common misconceptions, discusses the significance of practice of pranayama in maintaining good health and, most important, explains in detail the practice of pranayama — its different components and varieties, the various asanas, bandhas, kriyas and mudras.

The focus of the book is practical, with each asana illustrated and each photograph accompanied with explanatory text.

There is a separate section of how pranayaina helps in recovery and restoration of good health and how the practice of different and specific asanas can speed up recovery from common ailments, aches, pains, postural defects, diabetes, obesity, stomach problems, piles, asthma, arthritis, gout, etc.

Testimonials
Thank you very much. Your sale prices are wonderful.
Michael, USA
Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
