Swami Muktibhodananda: Swara Yoga
This book contains the original Sanskrit text of the Shiva Swarodaya with a translation in English. The theory section includes references to scientific research into the influence of breathing patterns on the right and left hemispheres of the brain, instinctual behaviour and higher brain functions, which is correlated with the tantric view of human physiology.
In the practice section the techniques of this ancient yoga are explained in detail. For this practice prior experience in pranayama, mudras and some pratyahara techniques including mantra japa, trataka and visualisation are necessary.
This is an important text for advanced yoga practitioners and yoga teachers.
