He is a yoga and meditation instructor, massage therapist, videographer, writer and dad and is known for his calm, skilled delivery, his ability to encourage people to be connected to their inner experience and his knowledge of anatomy, alignment, meditation, relaxation and pranayama.

Understanding functional anatomy has the potential of transforming not only your practice, but your relationship to your body. 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. Blog 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.

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 don’t want a guide to doing asanas David Procyshyn AndyG 1 year ago Featuring over 170 yoga postures, this book is an illustrated, step-by-step guide to achieving each posture, including how to move into the pose, the gaze, build-up poses, counter poses, how to lighten the pose and its effects on the body and mind. The Yoga Bible also has a general introduction to yoga, including what yoga is, some yoga philosophy, common styles and suggestions around getting the best out of your practice. You could say that this is the best comprehensive yoga pocket book that exists – although, you need a very big pocket to fit it in! Namaste! Yoga: The Spirit and Practice of Moving Through Stillness by Erich Schiffmann Bloopers and Outtakes Mission and Values You would like to better understand your psyche and belief system Musicians 21 Mar 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. Do Yoga With Me Jack Kornfield’s popular ‘A Path with Heart’ is both an introduction to Buddhist practice as well as an easy to follow guide to meditation, the process of inner transformation and the integration of a spiritual practice into a western way of life. Jack Kornfield is a spiritual teacher, psychologist and meditation master who approaches difficult issues like addiction, psychological and emotional healing and relationship issues with warmth, grace and compassion. He fills this book with practical techniques, guided meditations, stories and other gems of wisdom that can help ease your journey on your life path.
