Asanas, mudras and bandhas for sexual health
Pranayama and meditation for sexual disorders
The chapter is based on our experience with Yoga, Ayurveda and other alternative systems of Indian medicine and their positive impact on sexual health. Consciousness or the inner awareness exists within our body in two forms: static and dynamic. There is a concept of a nonanatomical-subtle energy body (SEB) and a non-physiological-subtle energy generator (SEG). SEG is a sort of dynamic consciousness and is also called Mool Prana, Anhad Naad, Kundalini, etc.
