Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.

ORLY? So what were people doing before the Breathe video came out last year? Pretty sure the first Eight Movements of Yantra Yoga are not the same thing. Then, there are the more advanced YY movements.

I have the 2 new DVDs here, the old one: "The 8 movements of Yantra Yoga" and the "Breathe" as well. They are all connected and the instructors have done great job! :twothumbsup:
I have followed 2 courses with Laoura and 1 with Fabio.
So, everyone who is seriously interested in Yantra and has tried at least to do some in his/her life, knows well that it is not easy and needs a lot of practice.
In this case, all DVDs can be very useful as a complementary helping tool.
Frequently the body itself creates the questions which can be different from person to person and then a good instructor is necessary!
Of course, the perfect combination of a good instructor and a clever, diligent student creates harmony and quick improvement for the latter. A good instructor alone cannot do much with a stupid, lazy student.
Laoura told us that it is not good to mix-up Yoga transmissions from different tranditions. Yantra Yoga is very special in the Dzogchen tradition. Other transmissions have their own rules and values.
Also there are things that you can speak out freely to people who are really interested and things that you break your samaya if you speak.
That's all folks from me, and sorry but there is no shortcut to this path! :namaste:

This reminds me, sometimes I think Namkhai Norbu is using the word "qualifications" where I would use "qualities." I wonder if these terms are somewhat interchangeable in Italian.

Yes. Sometimes when he says "qualifed" practice, he's referring to a high quality practice. Like practicing mantra recitation mindfully as opposed to mindlessly while daydreaming.

I have the yantra yoga level 1 dvd. I think it is great addition to the Yantra Yoga book. My question is, when one is performing the yantras like the camel etc.. Is the breathing method direct or is it done with the constriction of the glottis?

Btw,I am considering going to a teacher directly and taking a course, but there is nothing close to my area.

Thanks!

Yeah i watched the dvd a couple of times and it looks like it is direct. I got much better effect with direct breathing anyways.

The question is then, when are we supposed to breathe with the glottis constricted?

I'm studying the book now, so if/when I find out from a unrestricted DVD or book, I'll try to remember to post it here if no one else has answered the question by then.

From what i have read in the book the constriction of the glottis is done when performing the longer counts in kumbhaka and in some of the sitting pranayamas where some of the chin locks and other constrictions are performed.
