Based on ancient Sanskrit works on Yoga as well as thousands of years of oral teachings, this Hatha Yoga classic moves beyond the introductory level of Yoga and provides illustrated instructions for many advanced asanas and other yogic techniques to build strength, stamina, and good posture -- a necessary prerequisite for spiritual development.
Offering detailed exercise plans to help you develop your personal weekly yoga practice as well as techniques to target specific areas of the body, such as the abdominal muscles, this book also contains detailed instructions on many forms of pranayama (breath control), including alternate-nostril breathing, kapalabhati, and sahita, as well as meditative methods for developing your powers of concentration and mental discipline. With instructions on diet, fasting, internal cleansing, advanced sexual control, and strengthening the endocrine system, Sri S. S. Goswami's classic text presents the complete picture of an advanced Hatha Yoga lifestyle for a strong, vital, beautiful body and a balanced, harmonious, happy mind.
SHYAM SUNDAR GOSWAMI (1891-1978) was the founder of the Goswami Yoga Institute in Sweden, which opened in 1949 and was the first yoga school in Scandinavia. A disciple of the great yoga master Balak Bharati, he toured the world giving lectures and yoga demonstrations as well as participating in scientific studies on the physical benefits of yoga practice. He also wrote Layayoga: The Definitive Guide to the Chakras and Kundalini.
