Product Description

Universal Yoga is a systematic approach to spiritual evolution based on the key principles of classical yoga, creativity in practice and personal freedom. Andrey Lappa developed the Universal Yoga system after two decades of intensive study and practice with spiritual teachers throughout Asia. His theory lectures offer insightful and comprehensive knowledge and skills for harmonizing spiritual awakening through yoga with everyday life.

Over 24 hours on 6 DVD, Andrey presents his brilliant synthesis of hatha yoga as well as his provocative insights into more esoteric practices. This fascinating series of lectures on yoga philosophy is as much a training on being a yogi as it is a workshop on how to teach yoga.

Lecture topics from this DVD box-set include:

  • 1. Distinctive features of Universal Yoga
  • 2. The universal scheme of Asanas: static positions of the body
  • 3. The universal scheme of Vinyasas: dynamic movements of the body
  • 4. Safety techniques in asanas
  • 5. The universal scheme of Pranayamas: control of breath
  • 6. Connecting Pranayamas and asanas
  • 7. The universal methods of energy control: Bandhas, Mudras, and Drishtis
  • 8. The function of Chakras and Rasas
  • 9. Primary and secondary Pranas
  • 10. Activation and control of Kundalini
  • 11. The universal meaning of Mantras and sound energy
  • 12. Control of attention: Pratyahara, Dharana and Samadhi
  • 13. Control and relaxation of the Maya Koshas: shells of human existence
  • 14. Kriyas and the cleansing of the Maya Koshas
  • 15. Development and appropriate use of Siddhis: spiritual abilities
  • 16. Yamas (moral precepts) and Karma
  • 17. Niyamas (self-purifying disciplines) and Karma
  • 18. Power of the Spirit

Special features:

  • A Demonstration of Rasas - activation of the chakras
  • A Demonstration of Ziong-Shing - Vietnamese dynamic yoga

Review

One of the Top Ten Yoga Videos of All Time --Yoga Journal

Lappa's Universal Theory of Yoga is amazingly thorough and comprehensive. For example, the six-DVD set includes a booklet in which he relates each of the yamas and niyamas to a specific kosha, one of the seven energetic layers that constitute a human being... Lappa considers yoga an evolving technology, not something that was perfected centuries ago and can never change. So he has developed asanas and vinyasas that go beyond the canon of the traditional, or official, ones to help practitioners free themselves from their habits and limitations. His theories are well thought out, clearly presented, thoroughly explained and generally compelling. --Yoga Chicago Magazine
