A step-by-step guide to yoga--stretching, breathing, and postures--in the proven Alpha Teach Yourself format. Readers can work through the process at their own pace, in comfortable one-hour chapters. Yoga lends itself particularly well to the Alpha Teach Yourself format because there is a logical progression of complexity in material to be learned; each hour builds on the hours that have come before. The first hours deal with stretching, relaxation, and breathing and then move forward to basic bends, twists, and postures, sitting positions, deepening your practice by adding meditation and visualizations, cleansing routines, and creating a yoga lifestyle. While designed as an introductory course to yoga, intermediate and advanced postures are also included to help readers build a complete yoga routine.
