Pranamaya Produces Audio Version of Nischala Joy Devi's Popular "The Secret Power of Yoga: A Woman's Guide to the Heart and Spir

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/19/08 -- Although an estimated 18 million people practice yoga in the US, many may not understand or be aware of the philosophical basis of yoga: the 2,500 year-old Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Pranamaya, Inc. has partnered with master yoga teacher, healer and author Nischala Joy Devi to produce an abridged audiobook companion to her popular book, "The Secret Power of Yoga: A Woman's Guide to the Heart and Spirit of the Yoga Sutras," (publisher: Random House, 2007). Devi is the first woman to write a heart-centered interpretation of the ancient Sutras. This 6-CD set contains seven hours of Devi's commentary, stories and guided experiences focusing on Asthaanga Yoga, the Eight-Faceted Path, and includes special material not found in the book.

The Sanskrit word "Sutra" is related to the English word "suture." The Sutras are intended to weave together our material and spiritual lives with the intention of bringing us to wholeness, Devi explains in the audiobook. In this CD set, Devi covers the portion of the Sutras that she believes will provide the most accessible foundation for a deepening study and practice of yoga in our lives -- well beyond what's found on the yoga mat. In addition to providing clear explanations of the Sutras, she provides real life examples of how these ageless teachings have been transformative in her own life and in the lives of others.

"I wanted to give women an interpretation of the Sutras that they could relate to and apply to their lives," says Devi, who for more than 30 years had been a highly respected international advocate for yoga's direct uses for spiritual growth and complete healing. "My desire is to share the feminine, intuitive, heart-centered aspects of the Yoga Sutras so women can easily access the peace and joy that's naturally in their hearts." Devi's presentation is progressive and well-organized, making it easy for people to incorporate the teachings into their busy lives. The guided experiences offer accessible, practical experiences of the Sutras, providing powerful ways to use the ancient wisdom to address today's issues and concerns. "The Sutras are meant to teach people how to find the harmony, compassion, joy, balance and other qualities that we have within us so we can live more fulfilling, happy lives."

Devi and Pranamaya, Inc. chose to put "The Secret Power of Yoga" into an audiobook format to best fit today's busy lifestyles; the CDs make an excellent soundtrack to many daily activities, such as driving to and from work, shuttling children back and forth to school and lessons or while perform other tasks. Although written intentionally from a woman's perspective, this CD series can greatly benefit all those who seek to understand the Yoga Sutras from a more positive, heart-centered understanding.

"The Secret Power of Yoga" CD set can be used alone or as a companion to the book from which it is derived. The CD set is available in select retail stores and online for $36.95.

The past few years have brought a sea change in the way applications are architected, developed, and consumed—increasing both the complexity of testing and the business impact of software failures. How can software testing professionals keep pace with modern application delivery, given the trends that impact both architectures (cloud, microservices, and APIs) and processes (DevOps, agile, and continuous delivery)? This is where continuous testing comes in. D
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
