"Я хочу рассказать о практике Кундалини йоги, к которой западный человек получил доступ совсем недавно, менее 40 лет тому назад.
Книги по философии Кундалини йоги пришли к нам давно, а сама практика оставалась под строгим секретом, её не преподают открыто даже в Индии, мастера передают учение избранным. Всё, что доходило до широкой аудитории - это слухи и пугалки (вполне естественный ореол любой тайны).
Западный мир получил возможность практиковать Кундалини йогу благодаря Мастеру из Индии Сири Сингх Сахибу Йоги Бхаджану, рискнувшему учить открыто, да еще и за пределами Индии. Он начал учить в Канаде и Америке в 1969 году. Сейчас центры Кундалини йоги школы Йоги Бхаджана есть в 40 странах мира.
Йоги Бхаджан начал учить на западе, познакомившись с представителями движения хиппи, которые пытались достичь переживания расширенного состояния сознания используя наркотики, а попадали в химическую зависимость и погибали от этого. Он дал им практику, которая позволяет переживать опыт расширения сознания, сохраняя здоровье и адекватность в социальной среде. Многие из тех бывших хиппи сейчас стали основателями школ йоги в разных странах мира, они свободны от наркотиков, имеют семьи и учат здоровью и вдохновению многих людей. Их диски с мантрами (духовными стихами, положенными на музыку с особым ритмическим рисунком) пользуются огромной популярностью.
В Россию школу Кундалини йоги открыл Яков Маршак в 1991 году. Сейчас в Москве работают несколько центров, где можно заниматься кундалини йогой с разными преподавателями, выбрав удобный день и время.-Так что же представляет собой эта практика, что там происходит на классах?
Элементы практики - это медитации и мантры, динамические и статические упражнения, дыхательные техники и релаксации. В Кундалини Йоге эти элементы сплетены в тонкую и точную технологию и используются на каждом занятии.
В основу практики положены крийи - последовательность динамических, статических упражнений и релаксаций, направленная на достижение конкретного эффекта (например, крийя облегчающая прохождение энергии вдоль позвоночники или крийя для высвобождения накопленной боли.)
Каждый класс начинается с пения инициирующей мантры, которая через вибрацию верхнего нёба активизирует работу гипофиза, что позволяет повысить чувствительность, улучшить концентрацию внимания на внутренних сигналах и ощущениях, а кроме того делает занятие более комфортным, т.к. увеличивается количество эндорфинов (гормона удовольствия). Затем пранаяма, разминка для позвоночника, растяжки, сама крийя и большая релаксация. В зависимости от выполняемого комплекса упражнений медитация либо предшествует релаксации, либо делается после. Завершается занятие пением заключительной мантры.-Что это даёт?
Это позволяет пережить опыт тончайших состояний, прикоснуться к Бесконечности в самом себе, раскрыть новые просторы для контакта с окружающим миром и с самим собой. Кроме того, технология Кундалини Йоги позволяет лучше осознавать свои чувства и мысли. В процессе практики более ярко проявляется способность наблюдать за своей внутренней и внешней реальностью, быть честным с самим собой. Помимо классов и занятий дома практикующий на определённом этапе знакомится с йогической нумерологией, целительским искусством и совершенствует практику через преподавание.-Кундалини йога, как духовный путь - это практика "домохозяина", а не санъясина, т.е. она предполагает нашу жизнь в социуме, а не направлена на отдаление от мира. Тот, кто практикует кундалини йогу использует жизнь "в миру" как отражение своего духовного пути - насколько он стал выносливее, насколько его отношения с окружающими находятся в гармонии, насколько он удерживает мир и покой в душе в разных жизненных ситуациях. Это не просто и требует задействовать ресурсы религиозного знания, философии и психологии, особенно здесь на западе, где сложно найти настоящего духовного проводника.
В основе дисциплины пути - Садхана - подъём до рассвета и медитация, что позволяет использовать время, когда энергетические каналы наиболее чисты, и можно распознать переживание тончайших энергий Бесконечности. "Как только мы создадим в себе тонкую восприимчивость, мы испытаем чувство завершённости внутри, а с ним и чувство полного удовлетворения... Мы станем более спокойными, наполненными, удовлетворёнными и искренними. У нас не будет больше необходимости искать поддержку и одобрение во внешнем мире, потому что энергетически мы будем самодостаточны, погрузившись глубоко внутрь своего Я." (Из книги "Йога Осознания" - альманах "Кундалини йога школы Йоги Бхаджана")-Качество : DVDRip

Kundalini Yoga - Transform Your Body, Feed Your Soul Workout
2010 год - 75 Мин
ОписаниеChange Your Life! Kundalini Yoga is the all-in-one inner/outer fitness system which will help you get everything covered, on every level, every day, in every way! This complete full body toning workout also focuses on an in-depth repatterning of the nervous system and emotions for new energy, new insights, and personal breakthroughs you may have never thought possible! In this inspiring DVD workout, Ana & Ravi take you to a new level of fitness and self-growth. Included are an in-depth Kundalini Yoga workout, as well as two profound sets and a meditation to purify your past and liberate you from old habits and feelings which don't contribute to your fulfillment. As in all the Ana & Ravi DVD's, super inspiring music will enhance your workout. Kundalini Yoga is the perfect practice to help you live long, look amazing, seize the day and prosper! Featuring the Matrix Menu option and Pre-Sets to help you get it all covered in the time you have. Also included: Bonus Material and the Born Free set which will truly take you on a journey from the mundane to the miraculous!
it contains KY warm-ups, Two Transformer Sets, a very powerful set called Born Free, Deep Relaxation, a Beautiful Gobinday Chant and then a surprise - a more powerful yet Purify Your Past Set.
The warm-ups include traditional exercises we learned in other Ana and Ravi's DVDs - stomach grinds, spinal flexes, twists, rag doll, etc - all very pleasant.
The Transformer 1 and Transformer 2 sets include exercise that work both emotional and physical, some are done standing, some sitting, some lying down - movements include second position plie squats with arm and breath movements (modifications are offered), navel center exercises (leg lifts and a modification of a stretch pose), etc. I really like the commentary - Ana and Ravi explain how these movements work on both physical and emotional levels.
Then comes the Born Free part with two exercises, both with the same breath pattern - inhale through puckered lips, exhale through the nose - the first one designed to evoke and transform inner anger (and it's also excellent for the lymphatic system) and the second one to help one be focused and fearless.
Nice long Deep Relaxation follows, and then we do the beautiful Gobinday chant.
The main workout seems to end there - credits follow, then the breath primer - and then another set came on - Purify Your Past. The exercises in this set were definitely challenging and I think really powerful. They are designed to get rid of holding patterns in the past and "everything we no longer need" (on a physical level they'll make your shoulders and upper body stronger than any number of push-ups).
The set is the same as in the latest 3 DVD releases - beach scene, blue skies, lush greens.

AWAKEN YOUR SENSES: 15 minutes 38 seconds
this was my favorite sequence! About a third of the way through the exercise, I started to feel ready to stop(and started to feel like I was going to get angry at Ravi. lol), but then it made me feel like when I run on the beach with the ocean air and beautiful sights and sounds, I feel like I can run forever. So, it was incredible to have that feeling from this exercise. Then when it was time to stop I didn't want to! I felt so energetic and like going on. The exercise was done seated with your ring and little fingers curled under the thumb tip. Index and middle fingers pointing up. You alternate moving each arm forward with the Breath of Fire. Then after doing this for several minutes, you bring your arms up parallel to the floor, bent at the elbows. It was amazing.
Then comes the DEEP RELAXATION: 5 minutes 10 seconds. It is so relaxing and restful.
There is a HEART OPENING MANTRA CHANT for 4 minutes 30 seconds. It is "Ra-a Ma-a, Sa Sa Sa Sat, Hari Har Hari Har.

Kundalini Yoga Quick Fixes
2007 - 148 минут
скрытый текстThis DVD compresses 5000 years of ancient knowledge into one powerful presentation! It's A-Z collection of 5-25 min. customizable workouts which have stood the test of time because they work! In addition to powerful whole-body workouts, this DVD features mini-sets for everything from anxiety, asthma, digestive disorders, headaches, depression, stress, and sciatica, to fatigue, PMS, and many other contemporary concerns. This DVD features cutting edge music and 4 hrs. of workout options!
Quick Fixes has over 3 hours of footage, which felt a bit overwhelming to me at first! The Main Menu offers the following options:
*Power Surge Warm-Ups (14 minutes)
*Yoga Quick Fixes
*Yoga Quick Sets
*3 Amazing Meditations
The Main Menu leads to several sub-menus as described below.
Quick Fixes: Positive PMS (10m), So Long Sciatica (7m), Delete Depression (16m), Digestible You (9m), Asthma No More (5m), Soothe Stress Free Fatigue (8m), Maximize Memory (6m), Headache Helper (6m), Anxiety Antidote (10m), On the Spot Addiction Alternative (16m), Sleep Easy (6m)
Yoga Quick Sets: Energy to Burn (12m), Flexibility & Strength (12m), All Systems Go! (17m), Balance & Joy (16m), Kundalini Yoga Superset (22m)
3 Amazing Meditations: Amazing Minute Breath (6m), So Darshan Chakra Kriya (3.5m), Sa-Ta-Na-Ma Meditation (14m) [These same meditation sequences also appear on Ravi and Ana's other new release, Dr. Yoga House Call.]
On their website and elsewhere, Ravi and Ana recommend that you begin with the Tune-Up and Breath Primer (optional), do the Warm-Ups, and then select from amongst the Quick Fixes and Quick Sets (these shorter sequences are meant to stand alone as well). There is some overlap amongst the segments--for example, some of the Warm-Ups and Quick Fix sequences appear as part of some of the Quick Sets. However, the transitions are virtually seamless, and all of the practices flow very well. Ravi and Ana frequently make statements about what the exercises are designed to do for you (eg, "according to yoga, this will give you _____"), although they generally don't describe exactly how this process works.
If you've never done yoga before, this DVD might not be the best place to start, as Kundalini yoga is fairly distinct from the more traditional forms of hatha yoga with which most people are familiar. Similarly, if you've practiced yoga but are new to Kundalini, be prepared for something a little different--i.e., most of the exercises will not be recognizable as classic postures, there is a lot more movement, and different breathing techniques are used, particularly the Breath of Fire (although I found that BOF was used a little less here than in some of Ravi and Ana's other videos).
Overall, this is an extremely well-produced, well-organized Kundalini yoga video that is a must-have for Ravi/Ana fans.
Kundalini Yoga Warrior Workout
2004 - 75 мин
скрытый текстA whole new approach to yoga! Kundalini Yoga moves, breathes, stretches, and works. The new and improved remake of the Warrior Workout video will give you nerves of steel, inexhaustable endurance, and the ability to make the impossible possible! This all-inclusive and invigorating 75 min. Kundalini Yoga workout offers a warm-up routine followed by a 45 min. nonstop, no-holds-barred energy feast. This DVD features great music and powerful meditation to help you access your greatness. You'll know you've had a great workout after this vigorous Kundalini Yoga set.
What is especially charming about this workout:
**Ravi's soothing voice (Note: I have the pre-matrix version where only Ravi is giving instruction.)
**the focus on breathing. This yoga workout, more than any other, forces me to really clear my mind and just breathe. My mind doesn't wander so at the end of the workout, I feel completely renewed and refreshed.
**the perfect blend of breath work, yoga, stretching, light cardio and meditation. I feel very worked out, yet completely relaxed after this workout.
**the clean white set. I keep mentioning the set in my latest reviews because in Ravi/Ana's 2009/2010 they use a very fake looking outdoors set that's very distracting.
Some things to be aware of with this workout:
**you should have some experience with yoga before doing this. Ravi gives a few modifications, but not enough for someone completely new to yoga.
**if you're not familiar with the breath of fire or long, deep breathing, you should start with later Ravi/Ana workouts (produced after 2004). Most of their subsequent workouts have a separate section that guide you through breathing.
A very highly recommended workout for anyone wanting a challenging Kundalini yoga workout.

Dance the Chakras Yoga Workout
2006 - 62 мин
скрытый текстDance the Chakras Yoga Workout is divided into two 30 min. sessions. starting with a complete 30 minute Kundalini Yoga routine, invigorating, dynamic, and profoundly effective, just like Ana & Ravi's other workouts. The 2nd set is not your usual "Trance" fare, but an energetic, pulsating, sequence of mostly lead movement routines. This section is pretty aerobic and somewhat intense. Although the moves seem simple, those who don't have a dance or aerobic, etc., background, may need to go through these a couple of times to familiarize themselves with the sequence. Dance 1 is Tribal Dance. The others feature Funky Temple Dance, Dance of Power, and Heart Dance. The last two are meditative (trance inducing). Tom Carden's music on this one will rock you.

AM/PM Yoga - Start & End Your Day in a Great Way
2005 - 90 мин
скрытый текстShine like the sun with Kundalini Yoga's special blend of breathing, movement, stretching, meditation, and more! Get all your fitness needs covered in this conveniently chaptered, easy-to-follow DVD. AM/PM Yoga features two 25 min. sets (Rise & Shine, and Unwind from the Daily Grind) to help you start and end your day in a great way! Not only will you gain strength, flexibility, and energy, but the added meditations will help you de-stress and make great gains on the inner planes. Sleep deep, wake up inspired, and seize the day! Total Running Time: 90 min.
The AM set begins with a morning prosperity breath meditation: Inhale, hold the breath and pump your stomach to "har" up to 40 times (Ravi says if you can't make 40, "that's okay"); do this for several minutes. The AM set is similar to the warmups on Quick Fixes, but longer and more intense: sufi grinds; spinal flex holding legs, then knees; neck rolls; leg stretches (20 degrees back then forward); and about a minute of frogs. Then begin the set with continuous breath of fire: forward bend; bridge pose; stretch pose; leg lifts (up 90 degrees, spread wide, back, down); tuck pose (knees into chest, head up); arm criss-cross in easy pose; V for victory pose ends the BOF sequence; then a brief corpse. Then the Morning Call chant (Ek Ong Kar) for about 10 minutes; for me, all that BOF and navel work seems to intensify the vibrations of the mantra, which is nice.
The PM set also begins with a breath meditation: inhale 8 nose, exhale 8 mouth, silently chanting sa ta na ma. The exercise set is brief: alternate arm/leg lifts; rock n' roll; spinal flex with shoulder shrugs; and the propeller. The Heart Center Mantra is next (probably my second favorite "sung" mantra after the mantra meditation that ends Dance the Chakras), ad guray namay, etc. This is followed by stomach pumps with the breath held in and out. Hands clasped in front of you, you then pump your arms up overhead and down to chest level rapidly while breathing through puckered lips. Then arms overhead, do BOF through puckered lips, followed by a brief meditation. The relaxation is to a gong sound, and Ravi invites you to imagine yourself floating 3 feet above your body. The ending meditation is Shabd Kriya, also for about 10 minutes, which Ravi says is good for sleep, relaxation or jet lag; inhale 4 counts, hold 16, and exhale 2 to sa ta na ma whahay guru.
The music is perfect -- it ramps up during BOF and arm-pumping sequences, and is quietly supportive and unobtrusive for the rest. The breathwork, chants and meditations are wonderful; even the relaxation is unique and sublime. I find it invigorating, relaxing and spiritual.

Ravi & Ana's Yoga DVD's are designed to cover every aspect necessary to bring balance to your mind, health, and emotions and imbue your life with inspiration and fearlessness.

A strong navel helps us to put back the energy we put out every day.

- The warm-up has some unique breathing exercises, not seen in any of their other DVDs.
- You pause and meditate briefly after each exercise. This really helps keep me focused.
- Modifications are shown for some of the tougher exercises.
- The meditation section is a little under 7 minutes, which is just about right for me to maintain my focus.

Yoga House Call
2007 - 150 мин
скрытый текстDr. Yoga House Call is one of the latest offerings from the husband/wife team of Ravi Singh/Ana Brett. In the same style as their previous videos, House Call features Ana alone on screen, practicing on a small rug in an all-white room, while she and Ravi take turns providing voiceover instruction. You'll recognize some of the music and yoga sequences from their previous videos, but there's plenty that's brand new here as well.
Like its sister video, Yoga Quick Fixes, Dr. Yoga House Call has over 3 hours of footage, which provides wonderful variety but can feel a bit overwhelming. The Main Menu offers the following options:
*Energy Warm-Ups (14 minutes)
*Dr. Yoga Remedy Options
*Dr. Yoga Quick Sets
*3 Amazing Meditations
The Main Menu leads to several sub-menus as described below.
Dr. Yoga Remedy Options:
Fertility & Potency (10m), Bye Bye Back Pain (11m), Strong Bones & Muscle Tone (13m), Anti-Arthritis (9m), Heart Helper (12m), Breast Cancer Prevention (4m), Immune Invigorator (7m), Brain Booster (13m), Eagle Eyes (10m), Inflammation Relief (6m)
Dr. Yoga Quick Sets:
Move Your Energy Move Your Life! (10m), Flexible & Free (16m), Strong as Steel (13m), Health & Happiness (16m), Kundalini Yoga Superset (34m)
3 Amazing Meditations
Amazing Minute Breath (6m), So Darshan Chakra Kriya (3.5m), Sa-Ta-Na-Ma Meditation (14m) [These same meditation sequences also appear on Ravi and Ana's other new release, Dr. Yoga House Call.]
As you can see, House Calls offers sets designed to address more chronic conditions--unlike Quick Fixes, which focuses on more common, transient issues. I also found the practices on House Call to be more active than on Quick Fixes, including more use of Breath of Fire and more arm movements, which made the practices feel pretty challenging at times.
In summary, this is a well-done, well-produced DVD of energizing Kundalini yoga practices.
Yoga Beauty Body
2006 - 60 мин
скрытый текстYoga Beauty Body is being called the perfect yoga workout. It begins with a concise warm-up set and an excellent Breath Primer which makes the popular Breath of Fire a breeze. This workout, includes the Magnificent 7 indispensable daily yoga poses done Kundalini style. This exciting sequence is nonstop, with brief rest intervals. Done in its entirety (60 minutes), it is moderately challenging, yet doable, allowing all levels to participate. As always, Ana & Ravi give modifications for most exercises. Kundalini Yoga works fast! Even after one session you'll feel fabulous! The genius of Ana & Ravi's Kundalini Yoga workouts are that they work on more than just the obvious -lengthening and strengthening all muscle groups--but also work the glands for emotional well being, happiness, more energy, better sex drive, and radiant health. There is something for everyone in this DVD.
The Class begins with a Tune in via a mantra and then moves into a warm up section, I particularly enjoy the warm ups as I feel my mind and body preparing for what is to come. Then there is the kundalini yoga sets which are energising yet calming, and include the 'magnificent 7' which is said to be very beneficial for women to do every day and includes stretch pose, camel pose, shoulder stand with breath of fire and plough pose with breath of fire. I feel encouraged throughout with Ravi's commentary and if I open my eyes at any time I am inspired by Ana who demonstrates beautifully. There is a lovely sa ta na ma meditation lying down on your front and then a final Tune out with a mantra. I feel so blissful and happy when I have worked with this DVD. I have had people comment on how radient i look after doing this dvd!
Ana and Ravi give good, clear instruction, information on the benefits of the postures and demonstration throughout and there is encouragement from Ravi to keep you going.
