9780007103102: Hatha Yoga: Breath by breath

New from the author of bestselling Dynamic Yoga.

The word ‘yoga’ means union. It refers to union on many levels: union of muscle and muscle, bone and bone, union of movement and breathing, union of thought and action, body and mind. Hatha is one of the most popular and readily accessible forms of yoga: not simply a form of exercise, but meditation in action.

Stunningly illustrated throughout, Hatha Yoga is a comprehensive survey of this branch of the yoga tree, taking in roots, philosophy, preparation, and practice. The practical section tells you how it feels, what to wear, and when to do it, and is followed by 15 basic lessons. These lessons are fully illustrated with step-by-step instruction on how to achieve and perfect the poses. Each lesson ends with a suggested practice session of between ten minutes and three-quarters of an hour, illustrated with thumbnail pictures of all the postures for easy reference.

From the Back Cover:

Hatha Yoga is not a religion.
It is not a physical fitness system.
It is not a stress management technique.
It is not a cult. It requires no strange beliefs.
It demands no blind faith.
There is no need for penance, confession, humiliation, or self-denial.
It is not a way of life with a special set of values and conventions.
You do not need to give up onions or meat,
burn incense, or wear prayer beads.
Hatha Yoga is more like a science and an art combined.
There is rigor and objectivity in its method.
There is beauty and inspiration in its expression.
