This complete illustrated practical guide reflects some of the most important developments in modern yoga teaching, including: the release of pent-up stress from busy lives, the emphasis on physical comfort and safety (working within your own abilities rather than forcing yourself into demanding postures), and a holistic approach, combining yoga with an appropriate lifestyle, especially with regard to diet and meditation. More than 200 step-by-step color photographs take you through the essential asanas (postures) and sequences, accompanied by clear and simple explanations. Special “boxes” suggest how beginners can adapt the classic postures to make them easier to perform – while more experienced students are shown how to progress to more challenging asanas as they build up their skills. Whatever your level of fitness and flexibility, Total Yoga is designed to meet your needs and lead you on the path to inner calm and a stronger, more flexible body.
