The Complete Illustrated Guide to Yoga: A Practical Approach to Achieving Optimum Health for Mind, Body, and Spirit by Howard Kent
Much more than some trendy New Age practice, yoga is an ancient and revered Eastern practice that provides holistic solutions to the increasing pressures and stresses of modern life. Embracing mind, body and spirit, yoga seeks to release the life force (prana) so that it flows freely and naturally through our entire being. This lavishly illustrated book demonstrates the far-reaching spiritual and health benefits of yoga, covering its history and origins and providing detailed discussions of such topics as anatomy and posture, preparation, positions, breathing techniques, and meditation. Special sections deal with yoga in daily life; special needs exercises (for people with disabiilities and injuries, pregnant women, children, and the elderly); and the healing powers of yoga. 8" x 12".
