YOGA AND AYURVEDA reveals to us the secret powers of the body, breath, senses, mind and chakras. More importantly, it unfolds transformational methods to work on them through diet, herbs, asana, pranayama and meditation – covering the entire range of our life and experience. It shows how Vedic medicine (Ayurveda) and Vedic spiritual practice (Yoga) work together in bringing harmony and well-being to body, mind and soul. Topics include asana, pranayama, mantra, meditation, pratyahara, diet, herbs and much more.
