About the Author: Master Swami Shankarananda belonging to the order Saraswati, and whose family name is Javier Plazas was born in Granada, Spain in 1959. From a very young age he became interested in Yoga and in 1974 he met Swami Vishnu Devananda from whom he would receive Brahmacharya Diksha. One year later he met who would become his Brahma Vidya Guru, Shri Swami Tilak Paramahamsa, from whom he received Sannyasa Diksha and with whom he studied in an uninterrupted way the profound knowledge of Dharma through the Vedic Shastras, Advaita Vedanta Philosophy, History of Orientalism, Yoga, Vyayama and Ayurveda. In 1985 Shri Gurudeva Swami Tilakji took Mahasamadhi in the company of Swami Shankarananda, surrendering to him his last vital breath.
Vyayama Yoga is an energetic and curative exercise, easy to practise by any person of any age. Its exercises are easy to perform and provide great benefits, due to the continuous coordination between movement and breath. Even though it originated in ancient India prior to the time of Buddha, the persecution the masters and the schools were subjected to, firstly by the Muslims and then by the British Raj, helped contribute to its disappearance. The basis of its knowledge is found in many tantra texts, but only a few direct vestiges have survived and have been passed down through time, such as certain sculptures and carvings in some temples of India. This book will become a historical document, for being the first methodological Vyayama book ever published, not only in Spain, but in the whole world. The book will open the door to a universe of possibilities capable of improving and transforming the quality of life, health and well-being of the practitioner.
