Resources - New Books
1. Yoga Meditation: Through Mantra, Chakras and Kundalini to Spiritual Freedom by Gregor Maehle
This book not only gives a precise step-by-step description of the meditation technique at the heart of yoga but also puts it into context with all other yogic techniques and how they contribute to the break-through to spiritual freedom. You will also find information on the importance of Kundalini as support for meditation and the factors that make it rise, such as chakra and Sushumna visualization, mantra and breath. The text then explains how the chakras represent evolutionary stages of brain and mind development. Gregor Maehle has been practising and researching all aspects of yoga since 1982, and he lived for several years in India studying with a variety of yogic masters and sadhus. His books Ashtanga Yoga: Practice and Philosophy and Ashtanga Yoga: The Intermediate Series have been translated into several languages. More recently he has published Pranayama: The Breath of Yoga.

2. Yoga Chikitsa by Giuliano Vecchiè
This 580-page book comprises the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, but mainly by Manju Pattabhi Jois. The book aims to provide the most complete explanation of the Primary Series ("Yoga Chikitsa") in Italian. Included are the complete First Series sequence as taught by Manju, the technique of each posture, suggestions, comparisons with the old way of doing the posture, anatomical information about the muscles involved in the posture, benefits and contraindications, a short dictionary of anatomy and a glossary of the Sanskrit words used in the text. At the end is a nice article about a student and teacher at Ashtanga Yoga Bologna and her experience of teaching Ashtanga to mentally challenged adults. Giuliano hopes the book will help other Italian-speaking people improve their own practice and knowledge of this wonderful practice. To order, contact the publisher, visit Amazon.it, or contact Giuliano at Ashtanga Yoga Bologna.
