Donna Farhi is a truly inspiring yoga teacher. In this ground-breaking presentation on the practices of yoga, she reveals how yoga enhances the connections between the mind, body, and spirit.
She outlines the seven simple movement principles that underlie all human motion and provides exercises to help readers understand natural patterns of the human body. In her own easy to read language, she explains the yamas and niyamas, the ten ethical precepts that are the foundation of all yoga teachings and explains how to incorporate them into a spiritually and emotionally rewarding inner practice.
At the heart of "Yoga Mind, Body & Spirit" are more than seventy-five yoga asanas or postures. Each is one pictured and described in detail, and they are arranged into related groups--including standing postures, sitting postures, arm balances, and breathing practices--or easy reference.
A selection of yoga practices of varying lengths and levels of difficulty provides challenges and inspiration for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students.
