The Pursuit of Pleasure: Understanding Your Cravings

…Yoga philosophy offers an intriguing image—that by its own intrinsic power, the Immense Reality veils its purely blissful nature and simultaneously unveils the world. A glow of original bliss continues to shine in everything here, like light in the sky before sunrise. This glow radiates in us as well—ultimately leading…

Sandbag Breathing: 30 Days to a Stronger Diaphragm

A Beginner’s Guide to Bandhas

The Art of Breathing: Drawing the Diaphragm
