For several thousand years, yogis have drawn on the powerful practice of pranayama, a technique of controlling the breath to maximize prana or life energy. Pranayama has been practiced to rejuvenate the body and as a means of self-study and self-transformation. While most yoga practitioners today focus on asanas, or body postures, a growing number of people are learning the complementary practice of pranayama to deepen and enrich their practice. The Yoga of Breath is a guide to learning the fundamentals of pranayama and incorporating them into an existing yoga practice. Rosen's approach is easy to follow with step-by-step descriptions of breath and body awareness exercises accompanied by clear illustrations. The book also covers the history and philosophy of pranayama, offers useful practice tips, and teaches readers how to use props to enhance the exercises.

Moral Education in America is written for educators, counselors and others involved in teaching and administrative roles, such as parents, business leaders and public officials. It concerns a new moral attitude in America that has had a substantial impact in education and society at large. It is causing us to lose sight of some important fundamentals that affect learning and behavior. Moral principles that have been part of our culture for centuries, and have contributed enormously to the development of democracy and freedom in America, are being de-emphasized. It is essential that a moral framework be re-established in formal education and other teaching venues for the benefit of the entire society. Can this be done in our age of individualism and multiculturalism? The author believes it can and will be done as more people become aware of the dangers of moral ignorance.
