Vayu's Gate: Yoga and the Ten Vital Winds - Softcover
Vayu's Gate is the first and only book about the Ten Vayus. Yoga practitioners of all levels of experience will find in this volume inspiration and new insights for asana and pranayama practice. The Vayus system is an ancient Yogic practice that has been lost in time. Only few obscure descriptions in Sanskrit texts were left of this profound method. Years of research have led international yoga teacher, Orit Sen-Gupta, to unravel the mysteries of this powerful vayu practice. New realms of consciousness and knowledge of the body open up, as the ten vital vayus, connecting body and mind, are discovered. In Vayu's Gate the subtle and far-reaching techniques of the vayus are brought to life again. A detailed and illustrated description of vayu practice in pranayama and asana is provided, enabling yoga practitioners of all levels to experience the inner presence of the vayus and to adopt the vayus into their own practice, investing it with a new dimension.

Orit Sen-Gupta has been practicing yoga for over 35 years. She has published various books about yoga, the most recent being The Heart of Practice: Understanding Yoga from Inside. She studied Sanskrit and Indian Philosophy at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, and teaches Vijnana Yoga and trains teachers in Israel, Europe and the Americas.
This is the best book I have read for a long long time. The reading sometimes is so exciting that my heartbeat forced me to stop, to take a deep breath, so that I can go on! A real a must for all the yogis with a dedicated yoga practice. Brilliant and simultaneously very simple, that is how Orit manages to write no matter the complexity of the subject! Very personal and obviously coming out of a daily yoga experience. Full of courage and dedication ... and totally revolutionary! It is a turning point in our daily practice, and I am convinced it will change the practice of yoga in general in our modern times. A must to read! --Teresa Caldas
