CHAKRA YOGA

Every living entity in the universe is made of energy. The universe is an ocean of energy and as human beings our cells are charged with energy. Thousands of years ago ancient Yogi discovered that the body was indeed a vortex of energy.

Working with energy to improve the strength of the mind, body and spirit can also be found in other ancient traditions including the ancient Egyptian civilization, ancient China, Persia, Japan, and North America. Each tradition has its own unique way of approaching the subject of energy and how to harness its power for personal self development.

The ancient Yogi identified seven major energy centres (chakras) inside the body of special significance. Modern research has noted that at each of these centres (as defined by the ancient Yogi) there are major glands which regulate our body. According to yoga theory, each chakra governs our emotional states ranging from fear, hate, love and anger.

This book provides an overview of each of the chakras and practical exercises designed to work with these centres generating energy. That energy can be used for improving your health dramatically. Using the secrets of a tradition rooted in antiquity, the book presents an inspiring and refreshing approach to working with your energy centres.

Practical exercises are explained in an easy to follow approach and suitable for beginners, intermediate and advanced practitioner of yoga and other fitness disciplines. Step by step instructions together with tips and trouble shooting, this is the definitive guide to understanding the chakras.

Difficult Sanskrit concepts are broken down and offered in a digestible format. The book provides clear advice, tips and troubleshooting with resulting benefits derived from performance of exercises. Generously illustrated by art-work and full colour photography, beautifully designed, the book is a definitive guide to chakra therapy.

YOGA MANTRAS:  THE SCIENCE OF SOUND

The power and effect of sound vibrations (Yogi mantras) have been documented by the ancient Indian classical texts.

This subject was shrouded in secrecy for centuries and passed only through word of mouth. Yoga has withstood the tests of time and is the fastest growing mind-body-spirit discipline in the West. More and more people are selecting this discipline to dramatically improve their health and the power of their mind.

In this book Yogi Dr. Malik uncovers the history, science and art of sound which continues to be used for healing, prevention and curing of disease, increasing the beauty of the human body, for increasing the energy of the mind.

Mantras are special types of sound currents and used in yoga to boost energy. Research shows that practice of yoga may help strengthen the immune system, help improve stamina and concentration levels.

Sound (through word, chant, silent meditation and/or with musical instruments and breath) is the oldest form of communication that mankind has ever known.

Every entity on the planet communicates through sound vibrations and energy. Sound has a direct impact on our psychology. No wonder then that the ancient Yogi incorporated sound into their practice.

Yogi Dr. Malik explains the history and background of this science of sound which is over 6,000 years old. There are different styles of chanting and meditating upon the mantra including naad, kirtan and laya yoga techniques. Here is also the anahata sounds (mystical sounds that can be heard by the inner ear) and Yogi speak of hearing these sounds when in a state of deep ecstasy or samadhi. Patanjali, the ancient Yogi sage and who is credited as being the father of yoga writes in his classical, timeless book, ‘The Yoga Sutras’, that energy can be raised within simply through practice of one mantra ‘om’.

This beautifully illustrated book uncovers the mystery of the Sanskrit mantra and provides a unique and refreshing exploration of this timeless tradition.

The colour, high quality artwork will help you on the journey to inner peace and for balancing the mind, body and spirit.

Chapters cover the different styles of mantra practice including raag, ashtanga, bija, kundalini and the classical favourites including Om and ong. There is an exploration of other spiritual traditions that also use the mantra and plenty of advice, practical exercises and generously illustrated with inspirational artwork.

Readers are given step by step instructions to test out classical techniques for raising inner energy for creative self development, for healing and preventing diseases of the mind and body, to improve the quality of your thoughts, for increasing confidence, for dispelling negativity.

Yogi Dr. Malik investigates the hand mudra. Mudra means ‘to seal’ or ‘lock’ energy. A mudra can be a hand gesture or a specific asana that seals in energy.

Hand gestures have been used for thousands of years to generate power, good energy and to influence others. Mudras have been used by Yogi to channel thoughts, in meditation and to improve the power of their ‘mind’ and ‘intellect’. They have been used globally for centuries by the Yogi of India, Buddhists and ancient Egyptians. Even the Greeks and Romans had their own special hand mudras. Today hand mudras are still used in varying contexts.
