- Extra video interviews on The Gifts of Pranayama, The Cooling Effects of Jalandhara Bandha, plus more

Book has three themes:
1) to provide you with supplemental information to help you make the best use of the exercises on the DVDs;
2) to present a collection of writings that convey the transformative possibilities of pranayama;
3) to serve as a glossary and reference for the yoga language used on the DVDs.

The writings in this book have been inspired by such sacred texts as The Hatha Yoga Pradipika, The Shiva Samhita, The Gheranda Samhita, select Tantras, and Upanishads. The aspiring yogi will find nectar in the language of hatha yoga used in these texts, nectar in the teachings that convey the highest reverence for the knowledge that is won from the study of asana and pranayama, the two favorite subjects of students of Ashtanga yoga.
