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.

Amazon Review:

The Heart Rules: A Practical Yoga & Meditation manual with heartfelt illustrations and guidance from Guru Prem Singh Khalsa, a Master Yogi, he is an advance practitioner of Kundalini and Ashtanga Yoga's, he was named 'Posture Master' by Yogi Bhajan.

He trains teachers as well as teaches people all over the world, the concepts of letting the Heart Rule and Divine Alignment and is an expert on body awareness in relationship to personal growth. He is also the author of 'Divine Alignment'! The book has in-depth instructions on how to approach at ANY level some more challenging Yoga Asana's with ease.

This book is designed to let you approach any position standing, sitting, asana's, exercises, with an awareness of how you are carrying your heart. Are you living with a closed heart, a dark heart, a broken heart?

Would you like to live with a Light Heart, a Brave Heart, a True Heart, a Generous Heart? There are meditations for these as well as Opening Your Heart, for a Diamond Heart, for a Light Heart, for a Pure Heart and more!

This Heart Opening book has an accompanying music and mantra CD that GuruPrem and his wife Simran sing and chant on. This book is great for allowing you to understand where you are and what is blocking you from living your truth and gives you ways to grow into your True Heart. The meditations and poems in the book are put to music and can be used with your practice.

Amazon Review: Guruka S. Khalsa (Sunny New Mexico, USA)

Guru Prem Singh Khalsa is an amazing body worker and healer with a deep understanding of posture, breath and body mechanics. A former champion gymnast, he now teaches yoga and has a healing practice called Divine Alignment in Los Angeles, California.

Guru Prem Singh and his wife Simran Kaur have recently published a beautiful "Yoga for Dummies" book called "The Heart Rules." Guru Prem understands that everybody''s body is different and that people have differing degrees of flexibility. The Heart Rules is a manual for creating a change of consciousness within yourself from a head-centered approach to life to a heart-centered way of living.

Based on simple but extremely powerful yoga kriyas taught by Yogi Bhajan and filled with joyous, simple clear and humorous illustrations by Harijot Kaur Khalsa, the book is a delight to read and use. If you want to get your yoga practice started, I can''t think of a better way to do it than this book.

And if you already have a yoga practice, or teach yoga to others, The Heart Rules will serve you as great tool in your practice. Every copy of The Heart Rules comes with a beautifully performed original music and mantra CD to use as a companion to the meditations in the book.

The kriyas and meditations are fully explained in clear, unambiguous language that is easy to follow. The chapters proceed from Recognition through Reclamation to Realization and include (among many others!)

If you've been hesitating to get into yoga because you''ve been thinking, "I''m not flexible enough" or "It seems a bit scary" then now is the time to take the plunge and give it a go. The Heart Rules makes it easy and fun and you will have a wonderful experience as you proceed through the easy but extremely powerful exercises. Go ahead, try it. I guarantee you will like it. A lot!
