If you cannot attend yoga classes, want to supplement what you learn in classes, or simply prefer to teach yourself at home, then this is the book for you -- it's like having a yoga instructor in your home, on call, 24 hours a day! The essence of yoga is in the details, and this book covers them all -- not just each of the postures, but their variations, duration, and correct breathing techniques.
Andre Van Lysebeth, with over 50 years experience as a yoga instructor, describes more than 200 exercises and postures, using over 100 photographs and numerous illustrations. Unlike other yoga books which show only the completed postures, these photos also illustrate intermediate steps and common mistakes. Van Lysebeth describes yoga breathing in detail, and explains the benefits and effects of each exercise. As a complete instruction in the practice of yoga, this book covers the mental and spiritual aspects, as well as the basic principles of a healthy diet and cleansing techniques.
For beginning students, this classic book is a perfect introduction to yoga; for more advanced students, it's a valuable reference work.Language Notes:
