Amazon Reviews *This book is a treasure trove of breath-based and meditative practices for a student of any practice to explore. It can be used for relieving stress, increasing energy, developing self-confidence or even for a deep trans-formational experience.

*Drawing from an astoundingly rich wealth of yogic history, Yogi Bhajan reveals dozens of previously unknown and hidden techniques for enhancing spiritual, mental and physical growth, grouped appropriately into chapters.

*At times, Praana Praanee Praanayam can feel a bit overwhelming because of its depth of information, but those parts are balanced out by plenty of practical (1-3 minute) techniques, making these practices very easy to access. It's an open structure - how you progress is up to you.

*I'd recommend this for any student of yoga, martial arts, Qi Gong, Buddhism, or meditative, mystical, or spiritual practice! It's filled with universal knowledge about our bodies, so I'd highly recommend it for any "everyday man/woman" to get to know their own body and mind.

*This is a one-book library of practical praanic techniques which work on so many levels to calm the mind, relieve stress (even "centuries old stress" as Yogi Bhajan put it), develop virtues, increase breath capacity, connect to God, or just to build a new sense of a relaxed and confident self.
