Swami Satyananda Saraswati

APMB is recognised internationally as a classic yoga text. It is a complete textbook for learning and teaching, with detailed instruction for all basic yoga techniques. The benefits and limitations of each yogic practice are given, with basic physiology, an outline of the chakra system, practice programmes and a guide to disorders and yogic remedies.

Swami Niranjanananda

A book worth waiting for! It takes us on a progressive journey through the varied aspects of prana – from the most subtle and sublime to the very practical. It is clear and easy to understand and follow, while unfolding the real essence of prana and the purpose of pranayama.


Swami Satyananda Saraswati

New edition - a completely reformatted version of this classic work. Comprehensive text (almost 1000 pages, hardback, well bound) which included 36 structured and systematic lessons. Includes daily practices and lessons on the different branches of yoga including hatha, raja, mantra, karma, bhakti, jnana and kriya.

Swami Bhaktipoorna

"Exercises are done to address the structural problems in the joints and the spine as a whole. They can be therapeutic or preventative. They keep the muscles in good tone and prevent contraction so that the muscles can allow complete movement and lubrication of the joints.

When we've gained insight into our thoughts and mental patterns, we can then use our minds in a positive and constructive way. Meditations specific to pranic flow, strengthening, healing of injured tissue and clearing away the toxins are easy to learn and powerful in speeding up and completing the healing process."

Practical Yoga Psychology

Dr Rishi Vivekananda

The great mysteries in our lives are the understanding of our personality, how we relate to other people and the world around us, and our place, if any, in the vast scheme of things. The other question we face is how we can improve our personal experience and our interactions with society, so that we live a happy, harmonious and helpful life.

Practical Yoga Psychology is an attempt to simply blend the teachings of yoga with those of psychology, psychiatry and other branches of Western science to give us an overview of the human personality, an idea of where we are going, and guidelines to proceed on our journey.
