Maneeshananda is an Ordained Acharya of Nithya Yoga. She has a Master of Philosophy degree in Yoga and Psychology. She teaches Patanjali's Yoga under the guidance of Paramahamsa Nithyananda, the young, dynamic, living Enlightened Master of our times. Maneesha took her first steps into yoga at the age of 16. She learned traditional yoga with a strong therapeutic bent from the Vivekananda Kendra, in Kanyakumari, India. With the blessings of Sri T. Krishnamacharya, she had the opportunity to study Patanjali's Ashtanga Yoga as well as the basics of Ayurveda under his son, T.K.V. Desikachar. Nithya Yoga is now offered by Nithyananda through Maneesha as a method for others to experience, sustain, radiate and express the energy of Eternal Bliss in their own Being. In this presentation, Maneesha gives an excellent explanation of what yoga truly is. Many people do not experience yoga because of the way it is presented with extreme positions found in magazines and even the attire that is worn. True yoga is not gymnastics. Yoga is an outer expansion of our consciousness. It is a complete technique in order to enhance our awareness about who we are. It is a beautiful, scientific way of touching base with our true spirit, which is nothing but our divine energy. Nithya Yoga is not just another name or a new system of yoga but is the complete representation of Patanjali's consciousness when he delivered yoga to planet earth thousands of years ago. This DVD is a must for all yoga instructors and to those who are serious about yoga in its truest form.
