Galesville, MD (PRWEB) August 14, 2012
Renaissance Yoga founder Satyam Kumar today announced his newest podcast, “Meditation ~ Inner Presence” as a way for beginners to experience the benefits of meditation and for seasoned practitioners to advance their practice – free and in the comfort of own home. Yoga and meditation have proven health benefits. From the mental benefits, such as stress relief and enhanced concentration – to the physical benefits, such as reducing blood pressure and improving overall fitness – yoga and meditation are increasingly more important in managing today’s demanding and fast-paced way of life.
Renaissance Yoga's growing body of free meditation podcasts offers a dynamic range of practices and techniques offering full mind-body relaxation sessions known as yoga nidra, as well as numerous meditation podcasts, including pranayama, a specialized breathing technique. Most importantly, no prior yoga or meditation experience is needed.
Satyam Kumar began his journey into the realm of yoga in 1991, while living in northern California. Satyam was initiated into yogic meditation, and toured India in 1993 and 1994 to learn more and deepen his practice. Over the better part of the next decade Satyam took a series of trips to live with his acharya, or yogic monk.
Following in the ancient master-disciple relation, Satyam was blessed with the opportunity to learn many of the cherished teachings of yoga in a personal and intimate way. It is this foundation of practice that he seeks to share today. With 20+ years of personal practice, 16 years of teaching experience, and a lifestyle rooted in yogic ideals, Satyam draws from a wealth of knowledge and insights.
In keeping with the yogic tradition, these podcasts come absolutely free. Listeners may play these podcasts directly from the Renaissance Yoga blog or download them onto an iPod or portable player with iTunes. These podcasts are available for use, download and listening in order to reduce stress or relax at any time.
For those who want to continue on in their practice of yoga, Renaissance Yoga suggests Satyam’s CD, Divanishi, which offers yoga and meditation practices for both day and night. This CD also features Satyam's musical partner, Anthony Malatesta, on sitar. Together the two create a truly wonderful medium to experience and practice.
This CD has been sold at Whole Foods, local shops and wellness gatherings, and is available on i-Tunes. Customers that choose to purchase the CD directly from Renaissance Yoga will receive a color-printed booklet of all the poses. Renaissance Yoga looks forward to sharing the many benefits and joys of meditation with both newcomers and veterans of the yoga community. Namaskar.
