  1. This is a great resource. Thank you the guidance and inspiration Gyandev

  2. Thank you soooo much, its my daily praxis Video, very helpfull

  3. I have been practising these set of exercises for the past 1 week, and I find tremendous change throughout the day.
    Thanhyou ji

  4. It's a shame you do not ship your DVD to Europe…
    Thank you very much for this video.
    Om Shanti Amen

  5. Nayaswami Gyandev – for your benefit read the Guru's energization exercise lessons as you do each action – or have someone read them to you and help you. For instance the forward and back adjustment starts at the bottom of the coccyx with 3 fingers of each hand placed next to the spine. keep at it. Love & Joy

  6. Also, during the energization exercises the eyes are lifted to the Christ Center and the attention is placed on the medulla.

  7. thanks for publishing this. these exercises do not seem to be deep ´spiritual truth`…Or secrets! I am nor Ananda nor SRF follower, just visited once a retreat workshop of Ananda and found it very helpful. For my opinion there is no such thing as a secret which can only be revealed to a certain group of people. Or ´permissions´. Sure that someone who wants to study deeply certain methods or scriptures has to learn them in a context of an entire system. But to show here a few exercises for people who maybe can use them – is, i am sure about that, really ok.

  8. Demonstration is nice, perfect, orderly, we do it in Ranchi Ashram. Jay Guru and thank you dear.

  9. Hello, I'm excited to let you know a method where you can find lot of new yoga procedures. Go to Google and type: "MindYoga4U". You will be a master with the ideas available.

  10. There Ananda foundation has permission to use these? I wonder do you thinking these exercises are as helpful without the written instructions also?

  11. I’d be willing to bet that a lot of people use this video to do Master’s exercises, but they don’t comment. This is one of the best videos on Youtube. Thank you for posting it.

  12. Thank you. Would be helpful to see the muscles contracting as he goes through the exercises. Great to have this video.

  13. Wish we could see muscles tensing and relaxing; it would really help. Why the T-shirt and long flabby trousers?

  14. I am pretty sure that there are a lot of us who use this video to practice these exercises, but we don’t comment. I want to say THANK YOU.

  15. कृपया दिशा निर्देश हिंदी में मिल सकते है

  16. In the video, the demonstration shown is elbow rotation at 4:19 and not Shoulder rotation as taught by Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda at SRF & YSS. The shoulders need to rotate and not the elbows. Please see this video https://youtu.be/Tr5pQxR5A5k?t=1147 for a correct demonstration.

  17. Paramahansa Yogananda states in the written lessons after the Stomach Exercise, "Never practice this exercise with a full stomach. Always wait two hours or more after eating, or practice before eating. Women should not practice this exercise during pregnancy." It would be good to state this before the video. =)

  18. AWESOME GYANDEV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. Finally got around to doing all 38 everyday. Love them. However, hong sau doesn't necessarily get deeper and better after these exercises. Ive had great hong sau meditations without doing any exercises before hand.

  20. I lived at Ananda in 1976ish, and we did this exercise everyday in a group!

  21. Have u taken permission from YSS I.e. Yogada Satsang Society of India & SRF Self Realization Fellowship established by Yogananda, before posting such videos.I think No.Why????

  22. I travel on the road for my living…so if it weren't for this video, I am sure I wouldn't do this at all. Not like it's easy to describe all this with words.
