Reseña del editor
FROM THE BACK COVER OF THE PAPERBACK EDITION: The premise of Yoga is simple. There is an outer reality and an inner one, and our nervous system is the doorway between them. Effective Yoga practices stimulate and open that doorway. The result? Peace, creativity, happiness, and a steady rise of ecstatic bliss radiating from within us... Advanced Yoga Practices (AYP) brings together the most effective methods of Yoga in a flexible integrated system that anyone can use. Instructions are given in plain English for deep meditation, spinal breathing pranayama, bodily manipulations (asanas, mudras and bandhas), tantric sexual practices, and other methods that are systematically applied to swing open the door of our nervous system to permanent higher experience. This is a non-sectarian approach that is compatible with any belief system or religious background. There are over 240 easy-to-follow lessons here, including many hands-on questions and answers between Yoga practitioners and the author. Whether you are a beginner or a veteran in Yoga, the AYP lessons can serve as a useful resource as you travel along your chosen path. Extensive reader feedback is provided in the book. Here are a few excerpts: "I searched for years to find a method of meditation that I can do. This is do-able." - AN "I've learned more about yoga in 4 months than in the previous 30 years of study." - SL "This is a very valuable inspiration for people taking up and maintaining meditation." - DB "Spinal breathing pranayama makes me feel so ecstatic, I want to do it all the time." - YM "After my first meditation session, I never felt so relaxed. You made me a believer." - JF "You make everything seem so simple, yet the practices are profound and dynamic." - SS "I wish I had this kind of information when I started some 15 years back." - AD "I love the way you explain everything. So simple, logical, and so safe." - RY "These are the best lessons I have read on yoga anywhere." - RD

Since the lessons first originated with some website lessons, there are lots of questions and answers from seekers who have written him, and he gives very practical advice, and always reminds people to self-pace with respect to how deeply they delve into the more advanced practices. It is a very refreshing approach.
I have a large library of spiritual books, many of which did not deliver as much as I had hoped. That said, I would whole-heartedly recommend Yogani's Advanced Yoga Practices to anyone who is very serious in their pursuit of meditation and advanced level practices.
P.S. May I add, that although I have purchased a ton of books from Amazon, especially in the spiritual genre, I have never written a review of a book. This book was so good, I felt compelled to write a review. I send my most sincere thanks to Yogani!
Yogani, the author, ends every lesson and every communication with the following motto, which I think best sums up the approach of this book and the Yahoo! Group from which it is derived:
The guru is in you.
The truth about any practice of personal development, whether it comes from a spiritual tradition or some other source of inspiration, is that no one can teach another person how to be happy. Those who believe they have useful information can only share what has worked for them or pass along what they've heard has worked for others. This Yogani does with a degree of honesty and compassion that is astonishing, refreshing, and consistent.
In this case, the information Yogani passes along comes from the original Yoga Sutras-- an ancient manual for cultivating the magnificence of the human spirit. The lessons focus on what works, how it works, and how to recognize when it is working for you. The practices themselves, though preserved through the Hindu tradition, were developed through experiment and observation over many centuries without regard to any particular religious belief. They can be applied to deepen the experience of any faith, or simply build joy and character regardless of one's opinion about the nature of the divine.
Time after time, both in the lessons and when answering questions, the usefulness of this no-nonsense approach shines through. Yogani has a way of clarifying the intent of each practice, which is to make steady and noticeable progress toward a deeper and more reliable experience of happiness that is independent of external circumstances.
Although much of the material contained in the book is available in the AdvancedYogaPractices group on Yahoo!, it is extremely useful and convenient to have ready access to the entire collection of lessons and the additional material that is only available in the book.
If the 12-Step and other self-help movements were at the forefront of cultural development at the close of the 20th Century, the advanced understanding of Yoga practices as set forth in this book will no doubt form the foundation of personal development in the 21st.
When Yogani says things like this:
The essence of divine experience is unending devastating
bliss and an unshakable silent peace.
He is describing an experience that he and other practitioners have noticed. His claim that this experience can be attained through the practices is easy to verify. When done properly-without undue strain or haste-the practices are harmless. As long as you remember that the guru is in you and follow your own inner guidance as you practice, your progress will be smooth, steady, and noticeable. May you be truly happy!
The philosophy of yoga teaches that serenity and ecstatic joy are the natural state of all human beings. Experiencing this state of living is not a matter of building something new, but rather of setting free what is already there. In Advanced Yoga Practices-Easy Lessons for Ecstatic Living (AYP), Yogani provides instruction in a series of ancient yogic practices that go to the core of that liberation.
Surprisingly, the techniques presented in Advanced Yoga Practices are not difficult. Unlike hatha yoga, there are no elaborate postures, no dramatic twistings and stretchings. AYP contains techniques for breathing and meditation that gently but powerfully tone up the nervous system, raise energy, and liberate our natural serenity and joy. Also surprising is that Yogani, the author, presents this information as a non-sectarian mechanical process-follow the procedures and the results happen. Just as when you lift weights your muscles gradually become stronger regardless of whether you're a Hindu, Muslim, Christian, or Atheist, when you practice the AYP methods, serenity and joy are gradually liberated regardless of religious or philosophical belief. And, as with physical training, AYP methods recognize that individuals develop at their own pace. Students are constantly reminded to practice at a level that maintains a comfortable balance between inner development and outer life.
The book compiles dialogs from the AYP online discussion group and adds a substantial amount of new material not found online. The format consists of techniques taught by Yogani, questions from group members, and Yogani's replies. Yogani writes in impressively lucid, literate, American English that reveals not only his formidable understanding of Eastern and Western spirituality, but also his gentle sense of humor and grounding in the modern world.
I have practiced yoga for over 30 years and have read a lot of yogic literature. I feel that the information I learned in AYP has done more to further my spiritual evolution than any other resource. It's truly a practical guide to enlightenment for the 21st century.
Yogani's work is brilliant not only for embarking on the unprecedented effort of combining knowledge of various esoteric schools into a coherent, scientific core of clear practical knowledge: Beyond its great opulence of information, it also excells in its ability to emphasize critical points and matters which the young adept has to face, repeating them and reassuring their conveyance - while never becoming dully repetitve. Thus, the student gains the benefit of being carefully lead along this unknown, at times intimidating path, while being able to safely develop his skills - without taking any unwanted risks.
From personal experience, I may testify that woking with Yogani's system yielded incredible results during a very short period of time. Perhaps the world of advanced yoga is not suitable to everyone - some may just stick for the first lessons for their whole life - however, for those who are interested to take the leap forward, this is probably the best source available.
