Summary
Experience the physical benefits and body awareness from hatha yoga, the most popular form of yoga today. This book uses nearly 650 full-color photos to visually demonstrate 77 standard poses that apply to all major hatha styles. Individual poses are presented from start to finish, showing you how to achieve proper alignment and breathing to ensure challenging yet safe execution. The result is an increase in the effectiveness, both physically and mentally, you'll experience with each pose. Several pose variations based on your personal preference, ability, and fitness level are also included. Eleven sample yoga routines show how to assemble the poses into workouts that meet your specific time, difficulty, and intensity parameters. Use this book to guide your muscles, as well as your mind, and increase strength and stamina, reduce stress and anxiety, reduce blood pressure, and increase flexibility.--From publisher description
