Reseña del editor
FROM THE BACK COVER OF THE PAPERBACK EDITION: Yoga opens the doorway between our outer and inner reality, leading us to Oneness and Joy in all aspects of life. Our nervous system is the doorway... Advanced Yoga Practices (AYP), Volume 2 refines and enhances the core practices presented in the first volume, and provides plain English instructions for new practices designed to cultivate middle and end stage development on the path of human spiritual transformation. Additional practices include advanced applications of samyama, diet, shatkarmas, amaroli, non-dual self-inquiry, bhakti and karma yoga, and a variety of approaches for building and managing a progressive and stable practice routine. Volume 2 does not stand alone, relying on the first volume as a foundation, and building on it. There are nearly 200 additional lessons here for assisting the serious practitioner to realize a life filled with abiding inner silence, ecstatic bliss, outpouring divine love, and unity. What readers are saying as they make use of the AYP lessons: "It's almost a science. You do the practices and progress as predicted." - MA "As a physician, it is moving to see the effects on medical conditions." - KC "I will be adding AYP to my class offerings to cover the whole of yoga." - MR "Far above and beyond all other yoga writings I have encountered." - KG "A growing inquiry in stillness has taken me to new levels." - CL "Especially useful for stabilizing my kundalini awakening." - SR "The tantra techniques bring great pleasure into our lives." - ZA "This approach includes a deep tolerance of other paths." - AN "Thank you for being the one who said: The guru is in you!" - KK For more reader feedback, see the last section in the book.

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 lessons in this book have literally changed my life. It has brought me an abiding peace that is present regardless of what may be going on in my life. It is true freedom. For the first time on my spiritual path I have actually gotten a taste of the divine, of the happiness and bliss that comes with experiencing the inner silence that is in each one of us. And this book (along with Vol 1) was my instruction manual for how to get there.
For anyone who wants to experience increasing peace, happiness, patience, love in your life, this book can show you the way. Sound too good to be true? I can tell you from direct experience that this book delivers on everything it promises.
I highly recommend it to anyone interested in true spiritual transformation.
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.
