With so much to see in yoga for everyone, at every time, Ananda yoga has been presented as an option for higher spiritual awareness along with the many other beneficial values of yoga for health and wellness. You may need stretching and toning, while other benefits like relaxation and meditation are helpful, and all of these are available in some way throughout these lessons and routines.
Ananda Yoga for Higher Awareness is a quality reference book that covers the basic principles of yoga including standing poses, relaxation poses, spinal stretches, and inverted and sitting poses, all with photographs. With all of this, there are many suggestions for routines at all levels from beginning to advanced. Author, Swami Kriyananda is the founder of the Ananda Yoga for Higher Awareness system. Kriyananda also often demonstrated yoga postures for his guru, Paramhansa Yogananda, the author of Autobiography of a Yogi in the late 40s. Kriyananda remains a world-renowned expert in yoga and meditation today.
Swami Kriyananda also authored Ananda Sangha Material Success Through Yoga Principles with a much longer and detailed set of poses and routines allowing for an additional in-depth look at Ananda yoga. Whether you are looking at the beginning of yoga or moving forward to more advanced study and practice, all of Kriyananda’s works are helpful.
