Natya Yoga. DVD 1: Bharatanatyam.
If you are bored with the static poses of Hatha Yoga, or if your meditations have little effect on your everyday life, your mind and your body, you will find Natya Yoga to be the ultimate answer to your inner aspirations and a complete solution. This DVD is meant primarily for a serious adult who wants to learn to live a healthier, happier and meaningful life.
About the Actors/Dancers:
The applications, meaning and effects of different body poses and moves, hand positions, gestures, and facial expressions and their effects and relations with the states of mind are explained in simple terms. This DVD brings out the significance of the Bharatanatyam costume, jewelry, and make-up, and describes the system of Bharatanatyam compositions.
While most children attend their Bharatanatyam classes just for fun, and many adult Bharatanatyam students - especially the non-Indians - consider it just as a more entertaining substitute for aerobics, this DVD introduces the lesser-known aspects and practices, such as the role of various elements of Karma Yoga, Raja Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and some Hatha Yoga practices and other exercises applied in Bharatanatyam, as well as certain mystic aspects of Carnatic music and its effects.
