ABOUT SPIRITUAL YOGA
Many thousands of Yoga practitioners yearn to explore the spiritual dimensions of the poses they practice every week. "Spiritual Yoga" fills a gap left by most modern Yoga manuals, which tell everything about bodily alignment and physical benefits, but leave out Yoga’s higher dimensions: subtle energy control, meditation, and inner enlightenment. In the book "Spiritual Yoga", Nayaswami Gyandev McCord shares these spiritual teachings as originally taught by the great Yoga master, Paramhansa Yogananda (author of the classic Autobiography of a Yogi) and Yogananda’s direct disciple (and Nayaswami Gyandev’s teacher), Swami Kriyananda. These teachings include: the mind-energy-body connection; the art of meditation; dozens of techniques for spiritualizing one’s Yoga postures practice; spiritual Yoga routines; affirmations and energy control suggestions for standing, seated, relaxation, and inverted postures; mastering pranayama (energy control), and breathing exercises for specific results (greater energy, calmness, concentration, etc.); and Yoga as a way of life.

ABOUT CRYSTAL CLARITY PUBLISHERS
Crystal Clarity is the publishing house of Ananda Sangha Worldwide in the United States. Our mission is to help individuals expand in their awareness of the Divine, and to demonstrate practically how to apply spirituality to every facet of life: success, family, health, education, and more. Our offerings are based on the revolutionary teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, author of the well-known spiritual classic, "Autobiography of a Yogi." Our founder, Swami Kriyananda, strove to combine the highest insights of the East with the practical-mindedness of the West. What Does Crystal Clarity Mean? Crystal Clarity means to see oneself, and all things, as aspects of a greater reality; to seek to enter into conscious attunement with that reality; and to see all things as channels for the expression of that reality. It means to see truth in simplicity; to seek always to be guided by the simple truth, not by opinions; and by what is, not by one’s own desires or prejudices. It means striving to see things in relation to their broadest potential. In one’s association with other people, it means seeking always to include their realities in one’s own. (From Kriyananda’s book "Cities of Light.")
