Pranayama (yogic breathwork) is a journey of self-discovery that is, above all, about being authentic. It invites you to shed ideas of who you think you should be, in order to open to the person you really are. Yoga master Yoganand Michael Carroll and his longtime student Allison Gemmel Laframboise dive deep into the mystery and techniques of the ancient hatha yoga traditions to reclaim valuable teachings that have been lost to contemporary practitioners.
What's uncovered is pranayama as a system for increased healing, vibrancy, and liberation.
If you want to get more from your yoga, Pranayama: A Path to Healing and Freedom is your guide to living from your truth, with complete acceptance and ultimate vitality.

About the Author
Born into a strict fundamentalist Christian family, Yoganand left this religious tradition behind at age 16. Yoga-in particular the yoga of Swami Kripalu-offered him another way to channel the dedication to spirituality with which he was raised. He studied with Kripalu Yoga masters in India and the United States, and taught at Kripalu for more than 15 years before founding the Pranakriya™ School of Yoga Healing Arts. At the time of this printing, Yoganand is Dean of the Kripalu School of Yoga, leads Pranakriya Yoga teacher trainings and other programs around the country, and is a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists. He is a masterful storyteller-through many years of intensive study and practice, he has gained a profound ability to distill and interpret esoteric yoga texts and techniques, making complex philosophical concepts accessible and engaging. When he's at home in South Florida, Yoganand spends time cultivating his collection of close to 500 orchids, whose ability to blossom and thrive in harsh environments amazes and inspires him.
