Overview

People are turning to yoga for many reasons. These range from managing stress to preventing health issues. Yoga is used to help heal the body from addictions. There are also those who decide to do yoga simply because it is “trendy.” They attend yoga classes in yoga studios because a celebrity chooses to endorse it. There is also the lure of achieving a “yoga body.”
Yoga is about the physical – about improving and toning the body. Yet, yoga is also about the spiritual development of an individual. In truth, yoga is a combination of movements and positions designed to develop the link between the head and the consciousness. Depending upon which form of yoga you choose, and there are many different forms, the focus will be on the exercises or positions (asana) or the development of the consciousness. Yoga intentionally includes aspects of conscious development of both the physical and the spiritual. This is an integral part of an ancient tradition that cannot and does not separate the body form the spirit/mind/soul.
In this book we will open up the world of yoga. It will explain and simplify what can become a complicated subject. This book’s intent is to expose the beginner to the different aspects of yoga. It will look at the typology of yoga as well as the basics. Chapters will examine the different approaches to yoga, as well as the bare essentials you will need to practice.
In doing so, this book will provide the information necessary to get any beginner started on the right path. To start off on the right foot, however, it is necessary to understand where the practice of yoga originated and the traditions. As a result, you will begin your journey by first looking briefly at the history and philosophy of yoga.
