Good Pranayama/Meditation/Spiritual School?Hi,
I will be in India from mid-Sept. to mid-Dec. of this year. I am in Thailand now and have learned some Pranayama techniques here from various Yoga instructors (I am at the "New Life Foundation"). But I am searching for a good school in India that mainly focuses on Pranayama techniques,and possibly meditation, mind development techniques, chanting, and spirituality.
Are there any Yoga schools in India that focus mainly on Pranayama and mind development rather than physical asanas? I am not against physical asanas, but I have several physical injuries that make it difficult for me to do many asanas, particularly from Ashtanga Yoga and the harder physical styles, but I like the slow mindful Yoga. My main physical problems relate to my back and hands.
Thus, has anyone attended a 1 to 3 month course in India they can recommend that mainly focuses on Pranayama, mind development, chanting, meditation, and sprituality? (some volunteer work is okay, as long as they would allow me to do work that could accomodate my physical injuries/limitations.)
Thank you very much for all advice you can offer.

Kaivalyadhama is a highly respected and wonderful place to study. My yoga teacher - Paul Dallaghan from Yoga Thailand - uses the pranayama techniques from this institute and regularly brings his teacher OP Tiwari over to his school in Thailand for workshops. Highly recommended. http://kdham.com/
