About AYP (Advanced Yoga Practices)
AYP is a system of yogic practices known for its powerful and effective methods. The system is formulated by the American teacher Yogani and is comprised of time proven yoga techniques. It is the combination of these different techniques, that forms an effective way through which to open and purify our nervous system.
The AYP method is designed to guide the practitioner to discover and live to their full potential. This is characterized by an ecstatic state of being and an underlying sense of peace and bliss, which is the basis of unity and absolute love. This is the true purpose of yoga.
To quote Yogani:
“An open and integrated system of advanced yoga practices is offered here which will unfold lasting inner peace and natural ecstatic radiance. The techniques act directly through heart, mind, body, breath and sexuality. Practices taught in AYP include deep meditation using an efficient universal mantra, advanced spinal breathing pranayama methods, samyama, self-inquiry, and an integration of hatha, kundalini and tantra techniques, all for steadily cultivating inner peace and enlightenment through daily practice. Everyone is encouraged to go at their own speed in taking on new practices. Much attention is devoted to developing skills in “self-pacing,” with the aim of assisting every practitioner to become self-sufficient in yoga.”
