health, Happiness & Holiness

kundalini yoga (Shakti Yoga, tantra yoga): Purported means of activating kundalini (also called ahamkara and kundalini shakti). This, allegedly, is a "dormant infinite force," "potential cosmic power," or "spiritual power" that, in most people, is asleep, without self-awareness, in a chakra at the coccyx. Supposedly, when kundalini is awake, it enriches people's lives emotionally, intellectually, physically, and spiritually. Moreover, its arousal purportedly contributes to the cure of many intractable diseases. Kundalini yoga includes bhuta shuddhi. kyo-jitsu: Localization of "imbalances" of ki by palpation.

Hatha yoga(hatha, yoga): Method akin to kundalini yoga. healing light kung fu (healing hands kung fu): Apparently, a combination of cosmic energy chi kung and Five Finger Kung Fu. Seminal and Ovarian Kung Fu, Taoist Sexology and Practice):

Rajneesh's "Dynamic Meditation" and "Kundalini Yoga"

yagya: Vedic (Hindu) ceremony purportedly designed to engage at least one deity in promoting health and restoring "environmental balance."

Yantra Yoga (Tibetan Yantra Yoga, Yantra Tibetan Yoga): Tibetan Buddhist variation of hatha yoga. The purported benefits of practicing Yantra Yoga include "balanced energy" and "spiritual development."

yoga: 1. Hodgepodge of dozens of religious and quasireligious systems and methods, many of which are health-related. The word "yoga" comes from a Sanskrit term that literally means "yoke" and, in Hinduism, implies harnessing oneself to God. However, contextually or with a qualifier (e.g., chakra, Chinese, Polarity, Taoist, or Tibetan), the word "yoga" often seems to mean simply "religious or quasireligious practice or group of practices."

Yoga for Busy People (YBP, Yoga for Busy People method): Form of hatha yoga expounded and endorsed by minister Dawn Groves. Purportedly, one learns with YBP how to "re-inhabit" one's body and develops a "childlike partnership" with it.

Yoga Nutrition: Dietary method endorsed by Richard Hittleman, author of several books on yoga. Its theory holds that: (a) prana ("life-force") is absorbable from food and is its "real nourishment," and (b) eating too many indigestible, rich, "devitalized" foods allows gastric removal of "vital energies" from other parts of the body, including one's "mental and spiritual bodies."

yoga therapy: 1. Field of practices that use yoga to treat mental and physical problems. 2. Psychotherapeutic variation of hatha yoga whose postulate is that disease is the cumulative lodging of "undigested experiences" in the "body/mind." Yogic Flying: An "aspect" of TM-Sidhi. Purportedly, it is a means of self-levitation whose effects include "bubbling bliss." Group practice allegedly promotes "harmonious trends" throughout a society.

Yogic Neuromuscular Therapy: An alleged means of stabilizing the "mind body connection." This stabilization purportedly allows the connecting of the spirit and the "unified body and mind."
