LReyle 1 year ago Namaste! You are ok with black and white photos that don’t look professional You are a yoga teacher looking to teach more than just the poses LReyle 1 year ago You don’t need to learn about how yoga relates to the energy systems You don’t feel the need to better understand your psyche and belief system Help You want beautiful, glossy, color photos Every yogi has a story of how a yoga book completely transformed their yoga practice. Many have more than one. If you have been practicing yoga for a few years or more, perhaps you can relate to this. A shift in perspective, a new way of looking at things or a different way of practicing can alter your experience on your yoga mat and in your life, enough that you feel somewhat different – more inspired, lighter… dare I say enlightened? You want a brief summary of yoga rather than something that goes into detail Monthly Update - September 2018 You don’t feel the need to better understand your psyche and belief system Many students find Donna Farhi’s Yoga Mind, Body and Spirit to be an invaluable part of their yoga journey. Donna provides a way to experience yoga in a more complete way, allowing the asanas to come to life through ‘seven moving principles’: namely breathe, yield, radiate, center, support, align and engage. With an impressive section on the mechanics of movement, beautiful photos (including what not to do) and yoga pose sections divided into standing poses, seated poses, back bends, arm balances, restorative poses and yoga breathing practices, Donna’s Yoga Mind, Body and Spirit will teach you so much about the practice of yoga, whether you are a student or an instructor. Remember me You don’t want a guide to doing asanas You prefer a book that focuses mostly on philosophy, not asanas Anodea Judith has a knack for writing about chakras and psychology in plain language that anyone can understand. Eastern Body, Western Mind is no exception – it’s wonderfully written and provides countless thoughtful moments and epiphanies. It is not just a book to read, it is a ‘workbook’ for healing the soul’s wounds that have accumulated over a lifetime and an attempt to teach you how to live in a healthier, more balanced and self-loving way. You love learning about your body, how you move and why You are a yoga teacher looking to teach more than just the poses Yoga and Functional Anatomy Click here to purchase Eastern Body Western Mind from Amazon Thank you! Improve your practice with exclusive challenges and programs You want to learn about being more sensitive when doing yoga Community Yoga Challenge - September 2018 Click here to purchase A Path with Heart from Amazon  This classic yoga manual by BKS Iyengar is a comprehensive and detailed book on yoga philosophy, bandhas, kriyas, pranayama and a step-by-step guide for each asana. Written by someone who many consider to be a yoga master, it has an ancient feel to it, as though the concepts have been carried through from yoga's origins. The images are even slightly grainy. The poses progress through the book from beginner to advanced and finish with yoga courses and curative asanas for various diseases. The requested URL /?p=351 was not found on this server.

This is by far the most impressive guide to functional anatomy and yoga that I have seen to date. David's unique approach makes learning about anatomy easy for anyone, while completely satisfying anatomy geeks who love to learn all they can about muscles and bones. The manual begins with basic principles of functional anatomy, then helps you understand how they work within many of the yoga asanas.  David's descriptions allow you to feel what he’s saying in your own body. There is so much to learn from this book that it could very well be your go-to yoga anatomy reference manual for years to come.
