Not yet rated | write a review
Yoga’s current popularity is surging as it relieves pent-up stress from busy lives and emphasizes physical comfort and safety (working within your own abilities rather than forcing yourself into demanding postures). It’s a holistic tradition, combining postures with appropriate lifestyle, especially with regard to diet and meditation. More than 200 step-by-step photographs take the reader through the essential postures and sequences. Special boxes suggest how beginners can adapt the classic postures to make them easier to perform, while more experienced students are shown how to progress to more challenging postures as they build up their skills. The practical core of the book is complemented by coverage of yoga’s traditional physiological, philosophical and spiritual context and its roots in ancient India. Specific topics addressed include the different types of yoga, finding and working with a teacher, how to start practising yoga at home, posture sequences, doing yoga with a partner and learning to meditate.
