Synopsis: In this much-anticipated follow-up to his first book, Ashtanga Yoga: Practice and Philosophy, Gregor Maehle offers a detailed and multifaceted guide to Ashtanga Yoga?s Intermediate Series. An expert yogi and teacher, Maehle will guide you to your next level with an unprecedented depth of anatomical explanation and unparalleled attention to the practice?s philosophical and mythological heritage. You will learn:

  • The background and applications of each of the three forms of yoga: Karma, Bhakti, and Jnana
  • How to use Indian myth and cosmology to deepen your practice
  • The importance of the Sanskrit language to the yogic tradition
  • The mythology behind the names of the Intermediate Series postures
  • The functions and limitations of body parts integral to the Intermediate Series, including the spine, the sacroiliac joint, the shoulder joint, and the hip joint
  • How to reap the full benefits of practicing the Intermediate Series
Maehle meticulously explores all twenty-seven postures of the Intermediate Series through photos, anatomical line drawings, and practical, informative sidebars. He also discusses the philosophical and spiritual background of Ashtanga Yoga and places the practice within the context of Indian cultural history. With passionate erudition, Maehle will prepare you to reap physical, spiritual, and mental fulfillment from your evolving practice.

Book Description New World Library. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Ashtanga Yoga - The Intermediate Series: Anatomy and Mythology, Gregor Maehle, Gregor Maehle's first book, "Ashtanga Yoga: Practice and Philosophy", provided a comprehensive introduction to all eight limbs of Ashtanga yoga and a detailed discussion of each posture in "Ashtanga's Primary Series" of postures. In "Ashtanga Yoga - The Intermediate Series", Maehle addresses the postures of the Intermediate Series, with the same unprecedented quality of detailed anatomical explanation and the unparalleled deep roots in ancient Indian philosophy and mythology. The Intermediate Series is the next level of practice in Ashtanga yoga. While the Primary Series is intended as 'yoga therapy' - seeking to bring balance to the body and mind and to develop strength, endurance, and flexibility - the Intermediate Series is the first step on the path to purification of the 'subtle body'. With a Sanskrit name meaning 'purification of the nadi system' (the system of subtle channels circulating energy throughout the body), the Intermediate Series shifts focus from the hamstrings, hip joints, and bandhas to the spine, chest, and shoulder joints. As he demonstrated in "Ashtanga Yoga: Practice and Philosophy", Gregor Maehle writes with a level of expertise that few Western teachers possess. Readers will come away from "Ashtanga Yoga - The Intermediate Series" well-prepared to take the next step with their practice. Bookseller Inventory # B9781577316695
