FROM THE BACK COVER OF THE PAPERBACK EDITION: Yoga opens the doorway between our outer and inner reality, leading us to Oneness and Joy in all aspects of life. Our nervous system is the doorway... Advanced Yoga Practices (AYP), Volume 2 refines and enhances the core practices presented in the first volume, and provides plain English instructions for new practices designed to cultivate middle and end stage development on the path of human spiritual transformation. Additional practices include advanced applications of samyama, diet, shatkarmas, amaroli, non-dual self-inquiry, bhakti and karma yoga, and a variety of approaches for building and managing a progressive and stable practice routine. Volume 2 does not stand alone, relying on the first volume as a foundation, and building on it. There are nearly 200 additional lessons here for assisting the serious practitioner to realize a life filled with abiding inner silence, ecstatic bliss, outpouring divine love, and unity. What readers are saying as they make use of the AYP lessons: "It's almost a science. You do the practices and progress as predicted." - MA "As a physician, it is moving to see the effects on medical conditions." - KC "I will be adding AYP to my class offerings to cover the whole of yoga." - MR "Far above and beyond all other yoga writings I have encountered." - KG "A growing inquiry in stillness has taken me to new levels." - CL "Especially useful for stabilizing my kundalini awakening." - SR "The tantra techniques bring great pleasure into our lives." - ZA "This approach includes a deep tolerance of other paths." - AN "Thank you for being the one who said: The guru is in you!" - KK For more reader feedback, see the last section in the book.

The lessons in this book have literally changed my life. It has brought me an abiding peace that is present regardless of what may be going on in my life. It is true freedom. For the first time on my spiritual path I have actually gotten a taste of the divine, of the happiness and bliss that comes with experiencing the inner silence that is in each one of us. And this book (along with Vol 1) was my instruction manual for how to get there.
For anyone who wants to experience increasing peace, happiness, patience, love in your life, this book can show you the way. Sound too good to be true? I can tell you from direct experience that this book delivers on everything it promises.
I highly recommend it to anyone interested in true spiritual transformation.
Yogani has 2 volumes of "Easy Lessons For Ecstatic Living" books available. The first one is a book providing instruction in the core yoga techniques that can be used to bring the body/mind to a state of readiness for higher spiritual techniques. These include deep meditation, spinal breathing pranayama, asanas, mudras, bandhas, tantric sexual methods, samyama and others.
The second volume covers:
1) Many techniques to use the stillness cultivated through the basic yoga techniques in prayer, self inquiry, and other practical applications.
2) Many other enhancements to make the basic techniques taught in the first volume more effective.
3) Volume 2 also expands and gives details on the shatkarma techniques that were only introduced in the first volume.
4) Additional explanations on physical and psychological experiences that are brought on by an active kundalini, and how to manage them. The functions of soma, amrita and ojas are explained
5) The various stages of the mind and how and when to engage in self inquiry
I would highly recommend getting this book if you want to develop the advanced stages of spiritual development. The two AYP Volumes cover a lot of information that you may finally have to buy many books to get, and in some cases not find anywhere else in writing.
Initially I thought the first volume would be more than enough for a beginner to work through before taking up any more. That was proven wrong as soon as reading the first few lessons here. They contain numerous practices and enhancements, many of which can be taken up very soon (ex. cosmic samyama, solar centering, spinal breathing enhancements, relational self-inquiry, etc.) if not immediately after starting out, without necessarily lengthening the time commitment overall.
The principle that is also elegantly illustrated with this latest edition is that the basic tools provided to the practitioner can, over time and with experience, uncover inner resources that help guide even the practice itself to deeper levels of refinement, and not just progress on the path. The author in effect shows here how this is done, by adding to the existing volume 1 baseline from his own vast experience and through the accumulating experiences of long-time practitioners of AYP.
These are some of the insights that can be expected, and that do become more evident, from AYP Volume 2, coming from such an organic, collaborative system, that on the one hand "stands on the shoulder of giants" of yoga, tantra, and nonduality, and on the other strives forward for the benefit of all.
