Bring health and harmony to your body, mind, and spirit by practicing Dynamic Yoga.

Dynamic yoga, also known as Ashtanga yoga, is a more rigorous, powerful form of Hatha yoga. By focusing on balance and controled breathing as you move quickly through the series of poses in rhythmic routines called Vinyasa, you’ll strengthen and rejuvenate yourself in wonderful ways. Juliet Pegrum, an experienced yoga teacher, explains how to achieve each pose so that even beginners can enjoy the benefits right away.

Let go of tension in every muscle, and feel relief and a soothing calmness take over. The heat that’s generated through practice encourages flexibility, boosts energy, helps the body detoxify, and promotes peace of mind. Each fully illustrated sequence prepares your body for what’s to come, from warm-ups through sitting, standing, and finishing poses. At every stage, you’ll know the health benefits that can be attained. Whether you want to encourage restful sleep or prevent lower back pain, you’ll feel tranquil and fully refreshed by the experience.

Establish a rhythm with weekly schedules specially designed for novices. Every week you’ll add more complex poses, advancing at the best pace. Advice on correct breathing, diet, and how to relax helps ensure total success.

Revitalize yourself with this classic, powerful practice that offers great physical and spiritual benefits.
