Product Description
This DVD is the world's first video on Natya Yoga. It highlights the yoga elements in Bharatanatyam, and provides an introduction to this complex ancient system and its key concepts, and contrasts it with the practices of the trance dance, shamaniscic dances and sufi whirling.

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. yoga yoga yoga yoga yoga yoga yoga
