An interesting Q&A from the email:
-------------------

Q: In your lessons you talk about about practicing spinal breathing 10 minutes and deep meditation 20 min. But if you see any famous books of any Yogi, all of them have been meditating long intense hours for a long time. Because you have a lot of experience in this, have you been increasing the times on spinal breathing and deep meditation during the years or you continue practicing 20 minutes??. I supposse then when your are are more purifified your body is capable to support more long sesssions. Is it like that?? When you are more purifified, is possible practice more time on each sitting??

If it is possible to increase the times, is it correct to increase in 5 min spinal breathing and deep meditation each month??

A: Actually, it is just the opposite. Less can become more practice-wise the further we go along the path. A wide range of practices can continue, with small doses of each being all that is necessary to keep moving at a heady pace. It is a "flywheel" effect -- it takes less to keep it going once it is spinning fast. Self-pacing becomes very important as we advance, so as not to overdo with the inner energies, which become quite dynamic as ecstatic conductivity rises in us.

The AYP practices in combination are much more powerful than the normal fare, so a little will go a long way. Anything over 10 min spinal breathing pranayama followed by 20 min deep meditation will be pushing the envelope for most people, especially as additional practices are added. You are welcome to try more time, but be sure to self-pace at the first sign of overload. And keep in mind the delayed effects of practices. Overdoing today might hit us three weeks from now. That is why we make changes in small increments and allow plenty of time for things to settle in.

It is much better to be moderate and consistent in twice-daily practices and lead an active life. This combination will produce more spiritual progress than more time in practices and less activity, because the balanced integration of inner and outer life will be enhanced.

This is really the kind of question that should be brought up in the AYP forums so everyone can benefit. Consider doing that in the future.

All the best!

The guru is in you.

I'd like to add that personally, after about 2 months of great easy going practice sessions, a creeper effect hit me really bad. So I think it'd be good to add that for some people, the delayed effect can take much longer than 3 weeks and be very drastic all of a sudden.
