Best Yoga Exercises & Sets of 2009
In case you missed any of them, here are the top 5 yoga exercises and sets that the readers enjoyed and benefited from most in 2009.
This is a very complete set of simple yoga exercises which everyone can do.  This set works on your balance, flexibility and strength.  In addition, this set is designed to work on all parts of your body.  Thus, your upper body, lower body and abs, all get a good workout and tuneup.  I strongly recommend this set for anyone looking to start or try yoga, or looking for a regular gentle yoga practice.  This set is also a key part of the very popular Free Beginner’s Yoga Class, which was also launched last year.
Although this set of yoga exercises is primarily designed for men, it is an effective set for women to practice as well.  It consists of the best yoga techniques to open and balance the Sex Chakra, and the best techniques to increase sexual potency.  This set is a core component of the Free Tantra Yoga Sex Chakra Program.
If you are interested in Chakra Balancing and Kundalini, this set is for you.  It is a set which incorporates some of the best chakra balancing techniques and progressively leads you through each chakra, starting from the root chakra to the crown chakra.  This set too plays an important part in the free online classes, and specifically it is part of the Seven Chakra Balancing and Healing Program.   
The liver is the one of the most important organs in the body and for all the hard work it does, it sure deserves some love and attention.  This is where Pavan Sodhung Kriya is very useful.  This exercise is great for flushing the liver of toxins and at the same time, it helps you tone and strengthen your stomach and abdominal muscles.  Although it is not part of an online class yet, a Full Body Detox Program is in the works for 2010, and you can be sure this exercise will be part of that program.
For those of you really interested in getting fit, and developing your chest, shoulders, arms, abs, thighs and buttocks, you should check out this set.  It will prove how useful yoga can be in building muscle strength and overall fitness.  Many readers were quite surprised that yoga could deliver such good results in the areas of muscle development and strength training.

Best Meditation Techniques of 2009

In meditation lies the future of humanity.  I have no doubt that slowly but surely all of humanity is going to move towards meditation, and in meditation lies our salvation.  This is why I feel so strongly about teaching meditation and have worked so hard to creating the Meditation Teacher’s Training Program.  But here now let me give you the top 5 meditation techniques from 2009.

I finally had a chance to explain the meditation that I created and personally practice, the Silent Mind (SM) Meditation Technique.  In this 2 part video I broke down the 7 steps involved in SM for you in detail.  This technique is the most advanced form of mind meditation, and is designed to bring he thinking mind to a halt.  You can also read more about this technique here: Silent Mind Meditation Technique.
The Gayatri Mantra is the highest Vedic mantra, and is considered the most powerful as well.  In 2009 I was really happy to launch the Free Online Mantra MP3 Downloads collection, and the Gayatri Mantra was the first mantra I added to it.  This article not only has free MP3 download links for you, but it also has some great videos of the Gayatri Mantra.    

Perhaps this was the most needed meditation for 2009 :-).  This meditation is a powerful visualization technique, which leverages the power of the Third Eye and the Mind to help you manifest your dreams and desires.
This meditation produced instant results for many readers and yogis.  They were able to immediately feel the depth of this technique, and were able to have many breakthroughs in a relatively short amount of time.  This mantra meditation is the heart of Kundalini Yoga Meditation. 
Another video I finally got a chance to make in 2009, was the video for Sodarshan Chakra Kriya.  This is considered the most powerful meditation in all of yoga, and is known for it’s ability to bestow pyschic powers, supreme excellence and kundalini awakening.  So you can understand why it is so popular :-).  This new video clarifies this important technique, and ensures you are doing it correctly.

    I have been into yoga for quite a long time now. I am particularly fond of doing hand balancing poses, like the elephant trunk, frog stand, half lotus to crane, side crane and many others. As an exercise it is really good in toning the muscles and maintaining flexibility. I am interested in the meditation side of yoga. Could you give me tips on how to begin?

    I share the same interest with friends from the Mentor club, they are the ones helping me out with my startup business.
