Overview

Beyond Power Yoga by Beryl Bender Birch

Beyond Power Yoga presents and explores the complete journey of the classical astanga yoga system, from power yoga to meditation and liberation. Bender Birch’s first book, the groundbreaking Power Yoga, introduced one level of astanga yoga to mainstream America—a high-heat, high-energy mind/body workout. Now, Beyond Power Yoga presents all eight levels, or limbs, of this ancient method—a total practice for body and soul.

Drawing a parallel between astanga yoga's eight limbs and the mind/body energy centers (chakras) of Eastern philosophy, Bender Birch shows us how we can balance and heal our body, focus and relax our mind, amplify and direct our energy (prana), and ultimately reclaim our spiritual connection to Universal Consciousness. Each chapter offers specific practices to help the reader uncover and experience the insights of the astanga yoga journey.

  1. The YAMAS: Exploring the Fundamentals
  2. The NIYAMAS: Doing the Work
  3. ASANA: Practicing the Postures
  4. PRANAYAMA: Breathing Mindfully
  5. PRATYAHARA: Turning Inward
  6. DHARANA: Developing Concentration
  7. DHYANA: Experiencing Meditation
  8. SAMADHI: Living Joyfully
Presented in the down-to-earth illuminating style and inspiring voice of the author, illustrated with easy-to-follow photos, plus a special wall chart of the asana sequences, Beyond Power Yoga offers a short form of the dynamic mind/body power yoga method, then journeys through the deeper levels of spiritual practice.

Well thought out book about the ancient practive of Ashtanga Yoga. It give all the basic fundamentals and alond with David Swenson provide the reader with exact information on Ashtanga, but understands the need for Ashtange to be included as a part of our everyday life. Thhe book is a must have for anyone that practices this demanding, challenging yet invigorating style of yoga NAMASTE!
