9781552095027: Power Yoga: Connect to the Core with Astanga Yoga

"An extremely clear and beautifully presented introduction to astanga yoga. I strongly recommend Liz Lark's book for anyone who wishes to practice astanga yoga, or anyone who is practicing already." (Ralph Fiennes, Actor)

Once a student of India's yoga masters, Liz Lark now shares her years of experience practicing and teaching astanga yoga, the yoga tradition behind the popular new Power Yoga. With step-by-step instruction and color photographs of each stage in the postures, readers can learn the art of this graceful and strong yoga at their own pace.

Power Yoga is written to be used on its own or in conjunction with class instruction. Each of the more than 45 poses includes the traditional and English names, the drishti (gaze point) and at least one modification of the pose. Benefits of each pose are supplied so the reader can personalize his or her routine. Instructions include cautions for beginners, and for those with limited flexibility or physical limitations.

A comprehensive primer on astanga yoga, Power Yoga includes:

  • an introduction to all of the major yoga practices
  • the 8 principles of astanga yoga
  • the history of astanga yoga and its introduction to the West
  • the elements of the full astanga practice
  • the primary series: sun salutations, seated asanas, standing postures
  • the finishing postures: the relaxation phase
  • raising the bindu

Legendary for improving muscular, mental and emotional health, astanga yoga has become wildly popular in North America. Power Yoga is an expert introduction to the practice of this ancient physical art.
