Summary
From an acclaimed master yoga teacher and creator of one of the most popular yoga blogs on the Internet comes a contemporary guide to the full mind-body practice, combining intention and enlightenment with athleticism and physicality. While the practice of yoga encourages fitness, its benefits extend far beyond the physical. In order to have a beautiful, fit body, a yoga practitioner must understand and respect its inextricable link to mind and spirit. Yet for those who want a deeper connection with their practice, who seek enlightenment, there are few resources to provide guidance. Master yoga teacher, athletic model, and writer Rebecca Pacheco shows readers how to benefit from the ancient wisdom and philosophy of yoga without repudiating its modern attributes. Her book explores the traditional practice, translates these ancient texts for modern readers and puts them into the context of our everyday lives. Complete with a practical overview of the many different styles of yoga, simple poses, and sequences for daily balance, plus helpful tips on meditation.--From publisher description
