Chakras — strange things. Chakra balancing and awareness is a key part of my regular yoga practice, and I find to be a great way to bring harmony to a life which, unchecked, tends to being fraught. First a romp through established classical yoga, drawing mainly from the Satyananda lineage, and with attention to how the Asana, Pranayama, Bandha and Mudra practices influence the Chakras; secondly a review of ancient and contemporary writing about Chakras and Nadis from both an Indo-Asian and Western perspective; finally some personal theories about alignment of Chakras and Nadis with the Meridian system of TCM. This first part of the book is very useful in its own right as a refresher on basic practices, and also looking at it from a slightly different angle, the angle of someone not living and breathing yoga to the exclusion of other practices. The review of writing about Chakras, ancient and modern was useful, dipping into Upanishads, other ancient texts and some modern writing. Motoyama applies a degree of critical thought to his review, as you would expect, and this type of comparative approach is as unusual in yoga writing as it is welcome.

Motoyama died in September at the age of Motoyama's philosophical system was based on his experiences of meditation. His philosophy was based on the idea that no individual philosophical system is without its faults. Because of this, his philosophy appears to be an eclectic blend of seemingly disparate philosophies, but this is far from the case. Motoyama emphasizes the eight steps of yogic training. Borrowing from Kitaro Nishida , Dr. One who abandons individuality itself becomes a basho-being by completely annihilating themselves.
