Ananda Yoga for Higher Awareness
An illustrated, lay flat reference guide to hatha yoga as it was originally intended: as a way to uplift consciousness and aid spiritual development. Kriyananda's approach follows the tradition of the great Indian master Paramhansa Yogananda, bringing hatha yoga back to its central focus as an integral part of the meditative science of Raja Yoga. Inspiring affirmations and clearly written instructions demonstrate how to attune oneself to the consciousness of the poses, so that each one becomes a doorway to greater emotional well-being, inner clarity, and radiant health.
