The center is a welcoming, warm and nourishing place and now this book brings the benefits of Kripalu Yoga to everyone.
In this strikingly clear and comprehensive guide, Kripalu’s senior teacher’s present everything you need to know to reap the rewards of yoga practice. Beginning with step-by-step “experiences” that teach essential body and breath awareness, Kripalu Yoga features two complete, safe and fully illustrated routines for beginning and intermediate students, including Kripalu’s easy to follow “press point” instructions for correct alignment in each pose. For advanced students there is a broad menu of additional poses to increase strength, flexibility, and challenge.
Kripalu Yoga also teaches the awareness and energy techniques that make yoga a potent catalyst for physical healing, psychological growth and spiritual awakening. Here are specific ways to overcome physical limitations, develop a diet and lifestyle based on your own body wisdom and discover how deep concentration and relaxation can transform your experience of daily life.
