Yoga Asanas - Maha Mudra
 
02:20
Yoga Asanas - http://www.kalakendra.com/shopping/yoga-asanas-p-568.html Maha Mudra The beauty of music is that it is both the source of creation and the means of absorbing it. Mahamudra, belonging to a class of non-energetic yogas , it is the most widespread meditative practice in Tibetan Buddhism. Essentially, it is equal to the Soto Zen practice of meditation, with shamatha and vipashyana named in Chinese chih and kuan. Mahamudra in Sanskrit means great seal and is a method of direct introduction of the individual to the nature of Mind and the practice of stabilizing the accompanying transcendental realization. If a document bears the Great Seal of the Emperor, then there is no question as to the authenticity of that document. Similarly, it is said that during the genuine experience of Mahamudra, one has no question that one is directly glimpsing the nature of the Mind and that recalling and stabilizing this experience leads to Enlightenment. To perform the posture ....... Sit on the floor with the legs stretched out straight in the front. Bend the left knee , with the left thigh and left calf resting on the ground. Tuck in the left heel to touch the inner side of the left thigh. The big toe of the left foot will touch the inside of the right thigh. The angle of the extended right leg to the bent left leg should be 90 degrees. Stretch the arms forward towards the right foot and hook the big toe with the thumb and fore fingers. Tuck the chin till it rests in the hollow of between the collar bones and the breast bone. Keep the spine fully stretched and keep the right foot pointed upwards. Inhale completely. Tighten the entire abdomen from the anus to the diaphragm . Relax the abdominal tension exhale. Once again inhale and hold your breath while you maintain the abdominal grip. Hold the posture for 3 minutes. Relax the abdominal tension exhale. Raise the head , release the hands and straighten the bent knee. Repeat on the other side. Apart from the spiritual effects of the posture the physical aspects are equally substantial. The asana tones the abdominal organs ,the kidneys and adrenal glands. The asana cures indigestion. Women suffering from a prolapsed womb find relief as it pulls the womb up to it's original position. Holding the posture for longer periods will render relief to individuals suffering from spleen ailments and enlargement of the prostrate gland.

http://www.kalakendra.com/shopping/ojas-foundation-m-24.html As modern science ratifies the timeless wisdom of our ancient masters, we are increasingly arriving at the realization that no part of Indian wisdom and ancient Indian codes of ethics and lifestyle related practices evolved randomly or by chance. Every aspect of our tradition resounds with great power and potency, notably the living legacy of the Veda-s. Thus, it becomes paramount that we integrate the powerful vibrations of the Vedic mantra-s in our daily life, not just as adults but even prior to the conception of new life. In fact, today, more scientists are emphasizing the need for pre-natal education, a practice that was very much in vogue in ancient India as evidenced by unforgettable characters from our epics like Abhimanyu, Parikshit, Dhruva, Prahlada and others. Kalakendra is happy to be associated with the Ojas Foundation which promotes the Vedic path to healthy living. Pioneered by renowned Vedic scholar, Shri.

We bring to you some unique Vedic chanting based audio CDs that help us cope with the challenges of modern day living. Specifically highlighted is the importance of nurturing and strengthening the bond between a couple, and invoking the vibrations of the Vedic mantra-s before, during and after pregnancy. Some of the titles that have recently been released are: Wellness Series For a Healthy Heart Improve Your Memory and Intellect Eliminate Stress, Anxiety and Depression Eliminate High Blood Pressure Enrich the Couple Bond Pregnancy Series For the Expectant Mother Prenatal Learning Ease Your Delivery Nurture the Newborn For Happiness and Peace We trust that you will enjoy listening to the timeless resonance of the Vedic Mantras rendered by Shri.

Yoga Asana - Sarvangasana
 
03:48
Yoga Asanas - http://www.kalakendra.com/shopping/yoga-asanas-p-568.html "Inversions cultivate the yogic mind." Sarvangasana is the mother of all asanas. As the mother maintains harmony and peace in the family, this asana brings harmony and peace to our body. There is hardly any organ or area in the whole body which this asana does not activate. If a person practices Sarvangasana regularly, it helps him improve vigor, strength and sense of well being. It makes one feel confident and brings vitality after regular practice. To perform the asana ....... Lie flat on your back. Inhale deeply while raising your legs and spine until the toes point to the ceiling. The body rests on the shoulders and the back of the neck. The body is supported by the hands, which are placed on the center of the spine between the waist and the shoulder blades. Keep your spine and legs straight. Breathe slowly and deeply with the abdomen and concentrate on the thyroid gland. Stay in this position for about two minutes. In general, this should be a relaxing, meditative posture, not a strenuous one. You want to use more skill and less effort when holding this position. It is important to spread your weight onto your elbows so as to reduce the weight on the neck. Twenty percent of the nerves affecting our vision travel through the neck and shoulders. Looking up at the feet in this posture excites the mind and senses and can even strain the neck. The recommended "drishti" or gaze is down the nose into the chest, promoting a grounded calmness and effortless extension from your core. To come out of the posture, bend your knees, put the palms on the floor, then curving the spine, gradually unfold it the way one unrolls a carpet. When your entire back touches the floor, straighten the knees, take a deep breath and slowly lower your legs to the ground while breathing out. The main benefit of Sarvangasana is to get the thyroid gland working at peak efficiency. The thyroid gland maintains body weight and renders a youthful appearance. The asana vitalizes the nerves, purifies the blood, promotes good circulation, strengthens the lower organs and helps them stay in place. It gives a healthy stretch to the neck muscles. It is beneficial for people suffering from poor circulation, constipation, indigestion, asthma and reduced virility. As a word of caution ......... Do not try this exercise if you are suffering from organic disorders of the thyroid gland. Be very cautious if you are suffering from chronic nasal catarrh. People suffering form cervical spondylosis, glaucoma, pressure in the head and neck, menstruation, neck pain, disc problems or a weak back, hypertension or heart disease should avoid this asana.

Yoga Asana - Siddhasana
 
02:07
Yoga Asana - Siddhasana - http://www.kalakendra.com/shopping/yoga-asanas-p-568.html One of the most popular meditation postures is Siddhasana. The Sanskrit name means "Perfect Pose," because one attains perfection in Yoga by meditating in this position. The positions of the legs and the hands also contain the body energies by closing the circuits and allowing awakened vital forces to remain in the system during meditation practice. To perform the asana... Sit down with both legs outstretched. Bend the left knee and place the sole of the left foot against the right thigh so that the heel touches the perineum. Bend the right knee and put the right heel against the public bone. Place your hands in gyana mudra: join the thumb and forefinger of each hand, and extend the other three fingers. Rest your hands on your knees with the palms facing up. The spine should always be held erect. This is Siddhasana. Once this has been mastered, it is truly a comfortable position for meditation practice/ Breathe smoothly and naturally as you hold the pose. When you sit on the posture, think: "I am as firm as a rock". Give this suggestion to the mind half a dozen times. To exit, slide your right foot forward off your left foot, then draw your right knee up/ rotating from your hip. Do the same with your left knee, and then straighten both legs. Start by sitting in the pose for half an hour and gradually increase the period.

Vedic Chants during Pregnancy
 
08:07
http://www.kalakendra.com/shopping/vedic-chants-expectant-mother-download-p-2409.html The Vedas are timeless. They transcend religion and beliefs. They encompass immense knowledge and wisdom. Traditionally it has been taught that listening to Vedic mantras, permeates and nurtures the mind and soul. Pregnancy is an enchanting time for expectant parents. The evolving experience creates a circle of love between the parents and the unborn child. As the mysterious, hidden treasure grows in her womb, a woman achieves a sense of fulfillment. Pregnancy can also be a time of great emotional upheavals. We know that the growing child in the womb is affected by chemicals released in the mother's brain in response to her emotions. Listening to Vedic mantras will have a profound impact on the mother's emotions. It will create serenity and peace in her mind. In this state of tranquility and harmony, the mother is more receptive to her unborn child. This helps in establishing channels of communication between the mother and the child. In this heightened state of consciousness, both the mother and child are bathed in an aura of mutual love. Research suggests that structured, specific sounds heard by the fetus in the womb, provide a strong foundation for later learning and behaviour. Stimulation of this faculty by Vedic chanting leads to empowerment of the unborn child. The effect will be multidimensional and will have an impact on the child's subsequent emotional, intellectual and spiritual growth. You, as the parents of your unborn child, will find that listening to Vedic chanting will infuse you with energy. The energy of the mantras will be transmitted to your child and will empower it as it enters the world. As Veda pandit Tatwamasi Dixit says: To protect and nurture your unborn child: start each new day of your pregnancy with a warm welcome to your child accept and cherish this precious gift within you open wide the channels of communication to your child shower the child with unconditional love provide an emotionally stable space and environment for the optimum growth of your child You can best absorb the essence of these mantras by listening to them in two sessions. Choose a calm time in your day such as early morning or late evening. To get the maximum benefit out of these mantras here are a few guidelines to help you meditate. Seat yourself comfortably in a calm and peaceful atmosphere. Leave your hands loosely on your lap with the palms turned upwards Close your eyes Inhale deeply and exhale slowly seven times to calm your mind and body Be receptive and open to the mantras Let them pervade and permeate every cell of your body Submerge yourself in the peace and tranquility that emanates from the mantras

Bharatanatyam | Kavadichindu |  Azhagu Deivamaga Vandu

http://www.kalakendra.com/shopping/bharatanatyam-kavadi-chindu-p-902.html Bharatanatyam - Kavadi Chindu Kavadi chindu is a generic name for a variety of Tamil folk songs. They are light compositions in Tamil which are popular for their simplicity, emotional content and appeal. The songs have stanzas but no pallavi, anupallavi and charana divisions and mostly are in praise of Lord Subramanya and are steeped in bhakti. The Kavadi Chindu relies heavily on folk music. In music concerts Kavadichindu finds a place at the tail end among the 'tukkadas'. The 'mudugu' or the quick rhythmic tempo is a distinctive aspect of 'kavadi chindu'. This album features some very rare melodies apart from the popular ones. The Kavadichindu on Shiva is one such. A composition of Subramanya Bharati and two others of Oothukkadu Venkatakavi are the other highlights of this album. 1. Kamam Agatriya -This is a rare composition by Ramalinga Adigalar on Lord Shiva. The poet describes the various attributes of Lord Shiva pays homage to the Lord in the form of a "jyothi" or a huge flame of fire. 2. Nindranda Mayil This is a composition of Oothukkadu Venkata Subbaier. This beautiful song describes the impact of Krishna's music on the birds, animals and gopis of Vrindavan. 3. Villinai Otha - Mahakavi Subramanya Bharati, undoubtedly one of the most celebrated poets of Tamizh,wrote poems on varied subjects. This song is in praise of Lord Muruga and describes his marriage to Valli. 4.Azhagu Deivam -The Kavadi Chindu as a genre of music, was popularized by Annamalai Reddiar, a great composer from Tirunelveli district of Tamil Nadu. This composition is in praise of Lord Muruga of Kazhukumalai near Tirunelveli. 5. Kannan Varugindra Oothukkadu Venkata Subbaier's 'Kannan Varugindra Neram' is rich in poetic excellence and charming melody. This song beautifully elucidates the excitement and anticipation of all the creatures of Vrindavan awaiting Krishna's arrival. 6. Solladi Swamimalai - ThiruKutrala Kuravanji was composed by Melagaram Thirikooda Rasappa Kavirayar in praise of Lord Shiva and his consort during the 17th century. This song is an excerpt from this composition where the kurati or gypsy girl plays the role of a sooth sayer.

Yoga Asana - Matsyasana
 
03:12
Yoga Asana - Matsyasana - http://www.kalakendra.com/shopping/yoga-asanas-p-568.html Matsya, the fish, was one of the incarnations of Lord Vishnu, who assumed this form to save the world from Floods. The Matsyasana or Fish Yoga Pose is the counter pose to the Shoulder stand and must always be practiced after it. Having stretched the neck and upper spine in the Shoulder stand, you now compress them as you arch back, relieving stiffness in your neck and shoulder muscles and correcting any tendency to develop rounded shoulders. To perform the asana ...... Lie on your back on the floor with your knees bent, feet on the floor. Inhale, lift your pelvis slightly off the floor, and slide your hands, palms down, below your buttocks. Then rest your buttocks on the backs of your hands and straighten the legs. Be sure to tuck your forearms and elbows up close to the sides of your torso. Inhale and press your forearms and elbows firmly against the floor. Now as you inhale , lift your upper torso and head away from the floor. Then place your head back onto the floor. Depending on how high you arch your back , either the back of your head or its crown will rest on the floor. There should be a minimal amount of weight on your head to avoid crunching your neck. Keep your thighs active, and press out through the heels. Hold the pose for 15 to 30 seconds, breathing smoothly. With an exhalation lower your torso and head to the floor. Matsyasana exercises the chest, tones the nerves of the neck and back and ensures that the thyroid and parathyroid glands obtain maximum benefit from the Shoulder stand. It also expands the ribcage fully and increases the capacity of the lungs. As a rule of the thumb the duration of hold of the asana must be at least half the time spent in the Sarvangasana. This helps to counter-balance the stretch of the Sarvangasana. While performing the asana we should maintain our focus on the Belly, Chest , Spine , Shoulders and Neck .The asana gives relief for individuals suffering from Constipation , Respiratory ailments , Mild backache , Fatigue , Anxiety and menstrual pain. Once again as a word of caution those having high or low blood pressure , Migraine , Insomnia , Serious lower-back or neck injury should not perform the asana.

09:02
Bharatanatyam - Kavadi Chindu - http://www.kalakendra.com/shopping/bharatanatyam-kavadi-chindu-p-902.html Kavadi chindu is a generic name for a variety of Tamil folk songs. They are light compositions in Tamil which are popular for their simplicity, emotional content and appeal. The songs have stanzas but no pallavi, anupallavi and charana divisions and mostly are in praise of Lord Subramanya and are steeped in bhakti. The Kavadi Chindu relies heavily on folk music. In music concerts Kavadichindu finds a place at the tail end among the 'tukkadas'. The 'mudugu' or the quick rhythmic tempo is a distinctive aspect of 'kavadi chindu'. This album features some very rare melodies apart from the popular ones. The Kavadichindu on Shiva is one such. A composition of Subramanya Bharati and two others of Oothukkadu Venkatakavi are the other highlights of this album. 1. Kamam Agatriya -This is a rare composition by Ramalinga Adigalar on Lord Shiva. The poet describes the various attributes of Lord Shiva pays homage to the Lord in the form of a "jyothi" or a huge flame of fire. 2. Nindranda Mayil This is a composition of Oothukkadu Venkata Subbaier. This beautiful song describes the impact of Krishna's music on the birds, animals and gopis of Vrindavan. 3. Villinai Otha - Mahakavi Subramanya Bharati, undoubtedly one of the most celebrated poets of Tamizh,wrote poems on varied subjects. This song is in praise of Lord Muruga and describes his marriage to Valli. 4.Azhagu Deivam -The Kavadi Chindu as a genre of music, was popularized by Annamalai Reddiar, a great composer from Tirunelveli district of Tamil Nadu. This composition is in praise of Lord Muruga of Kazhukumalai near Tirunelveli. 5. Kannan Varugindra Oothukkadu Venkata Subbaier's 'Kannan Varugindra Neram' is rich in poetic excellence and charming melody. This song beautifully elucidates the excitement and anticipation of all the creatures of Vrindavan awaiting Krishna's arrival. 6. Solladi Swamimalai - ThiruKutrala Kuravanji was composed by Melagaram Thirikooda Rasappa Kavirayar in praise of Lord Shiva and his consort during the 17th century. This song is an excerpt from this composition where the kurati or gypsy girl plays the role of a sooth sayer.

Vedic Chants for Well Being - TKV Desikachar & Mekhala Desikachar
 
04:05
Mantramala - Sampurna by TKV Desikachar, Mekhala Desikachar - http://www.kalakendra.com/shopping/mantramala-sampurna-p-841.html How do we define wellbeing ? Is it a body that is fit and free of disease? Is it a mind that is focused and free of agitation? Is it a spirit that is characterized by conviction and confidence? OR is it a combination of all these and more? Track listing: Gurvastakam This composition of Adi Sankara, the great yogi and philosopher, is a warm tribute to the teacher. According to this chant, whatever success we may have, whatever wisdom we may claim to possess, whatever discipline we may follow, it is worth nothing if we fail to acknowledge and honor our teacher. On the other hand, if a student is totally devoted to his or her teacher, then no force including God can harm the student in any way. Madhurastakam In this sloka, the composer, Vallabhacharya, describes in minute detail every aspect of Krsna, from his cherubic beauty and the melodious music of his flute to his charming speech and graceful dance. This poem is composed in such a way that just listening to it calms and soothes the mind. ahimsa prathamam puspam Based on the work, "Prapanna Parijatam" by Vatsya Varadacharya, this adaptation highlights the importance of compassion, non-violence, forgiveness, discipline, truthfulness and other such qualities. Cultivating these qualities in ourselves is the best kind of flower that we can offer to Surya or the sun, who is revered as a powerful divine force. gayatrim anusamsmarami This is a composition of T Krishnamacharya in which he praises Gayatri, the feminine personification of the sun, and repeatedly offers his heartfelt salutations to her. mukta vidhruma This is a traditional dhyana sloka (invocatory prayer) on Gayatri. Her five benign faces reflecting different hues, each with three eyes, her head adorned with a crown bearing the crescent moon, with ten hands, two of which are in the pose of bestowing protection and the other eight, bearing weapons, Gayatri is presented in this chant as a powerful force who represents the very essence of the mantra "Om". vairagya slokam This is a beautiful sloka composed by Bhartrhari, which emphasizes that the only way to overcome the different kinds of fear that torment us is to cultivate vairagya. Vairagya is the ability to stay detached from anything that takes us away from our ultimate goal of seeking the highest truth. Abhitistava This is a composition of Vedanta Desika and is a fervent appeal to the Lord asking Him to protect His devotees from their enemies. Just listening to this powerful sloka can help us overcome fear and gain courage. sudarsana astakam Composed by Vedanta Desika, this hymn is in praise of Sudarsana (the discus of Lord Visnu). The Sudarsana is revered as one of the most powerful weapons and is believed to protect all those who surrender to the Lord. garuda dandakam This hymn by Vedanta Desika highlights the might of Garuda, the divine eagle used by Lord Visnu as his vehicle. It is often chanted to invoke Garuda's protection for safe travel, when setting out on any journey. vairagya pancakam In just five short verses, Vedanta Desika expresses his indifference for worldly possessions and the act of seeking favors from mere mortals. He says that true wealth lies in receiving the grace of the Lord. nyasa dasakam This hymn, composed by Vedanta Desika, glorifies the importance of wholehearted and unconditional surrender to the Highest. Also described in this poem are the qualities of a person who surrenders thus and the spirit with which his/her every action needs to be offered. nirvana satkam This is a composition of Adi Sankara. Here, the composer seeks realization of ultimate peace, identifying himself completely with the Supreme. TKV Desikachar TKV Desikachar is the son and long-time student of the legendary yogi, T Krishnamacharya.T Krishnamacharya not only brought to light the teachings of yoga in the early twentieth century, he also opened the doors of the Vedic tradition to all who were genuinely interested in preserving this ancient legacy.

An expert in yoga and all branches of Indian philosophy, TKV Desikachar has published several books and presented a number of Vedic chant CDs with the aim of spreading the message and teachings of his teacher, T Krishnamacharya.

Vedic Chants For A Healthy Heart
 
01:52
Vedic Chants For A Healthy Heart by Veda pandit Tatwamasi Dixit - http://www.kalakendra.com/shopping/vedic-chants-healthy-heart-p-2254.html The vedas are timeless and ageless. They transcend religion and beliefs. They encompass immense knowledge and wisdom. Traditionally it has been taught that just listening to Vedic chants and mantras permeates and nurtures the mind and soul. Vedic mantras can put you in touch with the source and connect you to a higher level of consciousness. A complete programme for the prevention or rehabilitation of heart disease involves active reduction of stress. A healthy diet, meditation and exercise are part of this programme. Listening to Vedic mantras specifically aimed at the heart will place you firmly on the path to good health and well being. The heart is perceived as the seat of emotions. Negative energies, both physical and emotional, inflict great pain on the heart. It is human tendency to hold on to negative emotions and brood over them. This sustained emotional stress, if not dealt with in the proper way, gets converted into physical ailments of the heart. One must learn to accept one's emotions and be more accepting of the natural ebbs and flows which occur in the human mind. The process of letting go of these counter-productive thoughts will facilitate the healing of the heart. Looking for faults and imperfections in others will inevitably have a negative effect on the heart. When one's heart generously perceives and appreciates the good qualities in others it will have a salutatory effect on the heart and fill it with positive energy. When an unpleasant life event has gouged out a piece of one's heart our inner reservoir of strength tends to dry up. This disrupts the connection between body, mind and soul. In this state the process of emotional healing can begin only when one learns to connect to the Cosmic Consciousness. When the body, mind and soul unite as a healthy amalgamation, the resonance and equilibrium of the heart is restored. When we ignore and discard decisions made by the heart in favor of the rational dictates of the head the resulting conflict can damage the heart. An estranged heart, hurt constantly by a continuous suppression is a bag of choked emotions. Opening the self to the inner voice of the heart allows healing. Veda pandit Tatwamasi Dixit says "to protect and nurture your heart be in touch with your inner self. Open your heart to the higher self. Be kind to your self. Learn to love yourself and others unconditionally. Be forgiving of yourself and others. Most importantly learn to let go. To get the maximum benefit out of these mantras here are a few guidelines to help you meditate. Seat yourself comfortably in a calm and peaceful atmosphere. Leave your hands loosely on your lap with the palms turned upwards. Close your eyes. Inhale deeply and exhale slowly seven times to calm your mind and body. Be receptive and open to the mantras. Let them pervade and permeate every cell of your body. Submerge yourself in the peace and tranquility that emanates from the mantras".

Built by Emperor Rajaraja Chola and consecrated in the year 1010 AD, the temple is unequalled in its size, majesticity, architecture, sculpture and serenity with an aura of divine beauty. It is here in the first tier of the compelling tower that the 108 Karanas (dance movements) of Bharatamuni's Natya Sastra was given sculptural codification for the first time in India. 81 such Karanas are seen as Siva figures. Rajaraja's longest Tamil Inscription gives details of his having employed 400 dancers and 240 musicians to perform regularly as part of rituals. For celebrating the 1000th year of this monument cum living temple, Dr. Padma Subrahmanyam has compiled, scored & choreographed three Bharatanatyam dance numbers to be performed in unison by 1000 Bharatanatyam dancers at the Brihadeeswara Temple, Thanjavur on Saturday, September 25, 2010 organised by Association of Bharatanatyam Artistes of India (ABHAI) of which she is presently the President and Brihan Natyanjali Foundation, Thanjavur with the support of Government of Tamil Nadu.

Each verse of Karuvur Thevar addresses Lord Siva as the presiding deity of the temple complex called Rajarajeswaram.

Subbulakshmi Accompanied by : Sangita Kalanidhi K.S. Narayanaswamy (Veena) One of the most celebrated partnerships in Carnatic Music in the last century was forged between Semmangudi Srinivasa iyer and M.S. Subbulakshmi, both titans in their own right. Subbulakshmi looked up to Semmangudi as a guru and mentor, learning and polishing number of master pieces from the maestro. Semmangudi was a regular visitor at Kalki Gardens, the residence of Subbulakshmi and Sadasivam. Impromptu singing sessions sans accompaniment, featuring Subbulakshmi and Semmangudi were quite frequent, sometimes joined by other leading musicians of the time. We are lucky to have a few of these sessions recorded for posterity. This album contains a recording of one such session when the two vocalists were joined by K.S. Narayanaswamy, the respected vainika and another of Subbulakshmi's mentors. The result - scintillating moments that envisages the grandeur of the "Triveni Sangamam" or union of India's iconic rivers. Semmangudi, the senior most of the three, exhibits his extraordinary genius in drawing out the true essence of the Kritis and the beautiful contours of the Ragas, with spectacular, sublime and surreal Manodharma. M.S. Amma's voice blendes with Semmangudi's like saffron with milk, the perfect unison of the two doyens, elevating the listener to mystical heights. She sings along with great humility yet undeniably making her divine presence felt in every rendition . Her enunciation of the Sahitya in each composition enhances the prosodical beauty of the kritis. K.S. Narayanaswamy, a renowned exponent of the Tanjavur style, is known for his graceful, emotive and expressive music. The subtle nuances and the sound of his effortless playing on the Veena along with the two greats, compliment their music and is an absolute treat to the ear. His Veena displays the highest quality of music. This unique product is a musical bonanza and a "GIFT OF GLORY" !

Yoga Asanas - Bhujangasana
 
03:15
Yoga Asanas - http://www.kalakendra.com/shopping/yoga-asanas-p-568.html Bhujangasana "I rise joyfully to meet each new opportunity." It is said that you are only as young as your back is flexible. Bhujangasana, or the Cobra pose, will provide a flexible back as well as strengthen the shoulders and arms.. This is a basic yoga posture. It is very easy to do especially if your back is not too stiff and rigid. Cobra pose allows us to unlock our inner strength and beauty, it blossoms with our inner radiance. Ancient yogic teachings explain that we have an inner divine light that shines brighter than a thousand suns. It is only veiled from us by the mind, which attaches to things that limit our perceptions of our self. From doing yoga, we learn to explore and break through these attachments, the boundaries that limit us physically, mentally and spiritually. To perform the Asana ....... Assume a prone position with your forehead on the floor and feet hip-width apart or less. Place your palms on the floor beside your chest, elbows close at your sides. Gently lengthen back through your legs during the entire pose. On an inhalation, curl your torso off the floor in three stages: First use your neck muscles to lift your head as far as possible . Then use your upper back muscles to lift your chest as far as possible. Finally, press the pubis into the floor and use your lower back to lift you up as far as possible, without lifting the navel from the floor. Use your arms to provide stability and support, but not to push yourself up into the pose. Keep your elbows in at your sides, shoulders relaxed away from your ears, and shoulder blades spread wide. Gaze softly upward, keeping the back of your neck long. Breathe smoothly and naturally as you hold the pose, and affirm mentally, "I rise joyfully to meet each new opportunity." To complete the asana, inhale and lengthen your spine ...... on the exhalation release your torso slowly back to the floor.Keep the pose for two seconds, gradually increasing to ten seconds. Do it from two to seven times, adding one time every 14 days. Pause in the prone position and integrate the effects of the pose. It is useful to recall that a cobra has no limbs, it moves from the action of the muscles along the spine. The spine lifts from its own internal impetus. The cobra lifts his body, he looks up, he draws back, he's ready to strike. Likewise, draw up your energy with the fluid flow of the breath, and strike at the doors of higher consciousness. The asana works effectively on a physical and mental level ........ The asana strengthens the muscles of the shoulders, neck, and back Develops flexibility of the cervical vertebrae Corrects deviations of the spine Improves circulation to the intervertebral discs Expands the chest and develops elasticity of the lungs Helps relieve lower back pain, constipation, stomach pains, gas pains, and backaches Affects the adrenal glands, sending them a richer supply of blood. Tones ovaries, uterus and liver. The muscles of the back, abdomen and entire upper body are strengthened . Aids in relief and elimination of menstrual irregularities. Relieves constipation, Limbers spine and has a therapeutic effect for asthma patients. Traditional texts say that Bhujangasana increases body heat, destroys disease, and awakens kundalini. But or the side of caution it is important to stress that people suffering from peptic ulcer, hernia, intestinal tuberculosis or hyperthyroidism should not practice this Asana without expert guidance.

Yoga Asanas - Salabhasana
 
03:21
Yoga Asanas - http://www.kalakendra.com/shopping/yoga-asanas-p-568.html Salabhasana Salabhasana is an effective means for strengthening the back of the torso, legs, and arms in preparation for the deeper backbends. It is an unassuming pose, but on practice we shall see that this asana is for more interesting and challenging than it appears at first glance. To perform the asana ..... Lie prone with belly on the floor, with legs held together, feet pointed out, and the arms placed along the sides of the body with the palms turned up. Rest your head, with the chin touching the floor, and look straight ahead. The chin, chest, belly, and legs are all touching the ground to start with. Relax in this position for a little while. Remember to hold the upper body rigidly by positioning the chin on the floor, throughout this pose. You can also have the hands interlocked and placed near the upper thighs, for a more intense stretch. Start to inhale deeply and slowly , gradually expand the chest and the lower abdomen. Lift up both the legs from the ground, as you keep inhaling. Keep the toes pointing out, to make the stretch more intense. As you end the inhalation, raise the legs as high as possible to flex your lower spine. After the slow and deep inhalation, hold your breath for a couple of seconds or for as long as you feel comfortable. This brief pause in breath is referred to as kumbhaka or rantar-kumbhaka in Yogic literature . The pause in breath helps in separating the inhalation and exhalation cycles in breathing, thereby allowing more time for the inhaled oxygen to reach different parts of the body. Start to exhale, and lower the legs slowly. Keep exhaling slowly as the legs are lowered to the ground. Exhalation and lowering the legs happen slowly, and together. This straightens the curved lower spine gradually. With regular practice, you will find that the lower back becomes increasingly flexible. Repeat the above steps of salabhasana 3 or 4 times. Concentrate on the lower back thus strengthening the abdomen and legs. The asana massages the internal organs, ensuring efficient functioning of the digestive system and preventing constipation. Regular practice of the asana can reduce Fatigue , Flatulence , Constipation , Indigestion and Lower-back pain To sum up Salabhasana renders the following benefits ...... Firms buttocks and hips Increases spinal strength, flexibility and circulation Helps cure or relieve lumbago, rheumatism, arthritis and menstrual problems Helps cure loss of appetite Improves function of liver and spleen Strengthens shoulder, arm and back muscles Compresses and opens spine Relieves cervical spondylosis and back pain Encourages concentration and perseverance.

Chants for the Expectant Mother
 
08:58
http://www.kalakendra.com/shopping/vedic-chants-expectant-mother-download-p-2409.html The Vedas are timeless. They transcend religion and beliefs. They encompass immense knowledge and wisdom. Traditionally it has been taught that listening to Vedic mantras, permeates and nurtures the mind and soul. Pregnancy is an enchanting time for expectant parents. The evolving experience creates a circle of love between the parents and the unborn child. As the mysterious, hidden treasure grows in her womb, a woman achieves a sense of fulfillment. Pregnancy can also be a time of great emotional upheavals. We know that the growing child in the womb is affected by chemicals released in the mother's brain in response to her emotions. Listening to Vedic mantras will have a profound impact on the mother's emotions. It will create serenity and peace in her mind. In this state of tranquility and harmony, the mother is more receptive to her unborn child. This helps in establishing channels of communication between the mother and the child. In this heightened state of consciousness, both the mother and child are bathed in an aura of mutual love. Research suggests that structured, specific sounds heard by the fetus in the womb, provide a strong foundation for later learning and behaviour. Stimulation of this faculty by Vedic chanting leads to empowerment of the unborn child. The effect will be multidimensional and will have an impact on the child's subsequent emotional, intellectual and spiritual growth. You, as the parents of your unborn child, will find that listening to Vedic chanting will infuse you with energy. The energy of the mantras will be transmitted to your child and will empower it as it enters the world. As Veda pandit Tatwamasi Dixit says: To protect and nurture your unborn child: start each new day of your pregnancy with a warm welcome to your child accept and cherish this precious gift within you open wide the channels of communication to your child shower the child with unconditional love provide an emotionally stable space and environment for the optimum growth of your child You can best absorb the essence of these mantras by listening to them in two sessions. Choose a calm time in your day such as early morning or late evening. To get the maximum benefit out of these mantras here are a few guidelines to help you meditate. Seat yourself comfortably in a calm and peaceful atmosphere. Leave your hands loosely on your lap with the palms turned upwards Close your eyes Inhale deeply and exhale slowly seven times to calm your mind and body Be receptive and open to the mantras Let them pervade and permeate every cell of your body Submerge yourself in the peace and tranquility that emanates from the mantras
