Scott Ashtanga Yoga Definitive Guide
Ashtanga Yoga:
The Definitive Step-by Step Guide
to Dynamic Yoga
Return to Index of Books.
by John Scott

Ashtanga Yoga: The Definitive Step-by-Step Guide to Dynamic Yoga offers clear, detailed instruction in the Ashtanga style of yoga. Ashtanga Yoga is a rigorous style featuring a strong aerobic component and a flowing sequence of poses. It is well-loved by people who want to combine the spiritual benefits of yoga with the rewards of a more vigorous athletic exercise program.

John Scott has established Ashtanga Yoga Schools in his native New Zealand and in London. In this book, he teaches the Ashtanga breath-movement system that produces a heat which releases toxins residing in the deep muscle layers of the body. This process alleviates fatigue, stress, depression, muscle atrophy, and illness.

Ashtanga Yoga: The Definitive Step-by-Step Guide to Dynamic Yoga teaches three Ashtanga Yoga sequences, including forward bends, back bends, standing poses, arm balances, hip stretches, twists and bandhas. Includes beautiful color photographs.

Paper bound, 144 pages.

Jivamukti Yoga
Jivamukti Yoga: Practices for Liberating Body and Soul
Return to Index of Books.
by Sharon Gannon and David Life

Unlike many books about yoga, Jivamukti Yoga focuses not only on the physical postures but also on how they evolved -- the origins of the practices in yoga's ancient sacred texts and traditions. Jivamukti Yoga also teaches about the psychotherapeutic benefits of a steady practice, and the spiritual power that is available when energy flows throughout your mind and body.

Approximately 80 pages of this 300-page book are devoted to physical postures. The postures include a good variety of forward bends, back bends, twists, hip stretches, standing poses and balancing poses. The rest of the book offers instruction in yoga philosophy, yoga ethics, meditation and the spiritual aspects of yoga.

Jivamukti Yoga, which means "soul liberation," guides your body and soul into spiritual freedom, physical strength, peace of mind, better health and self-realization. No matter what style of yoga you practice, Jivamukti Yoga will help you to strengthen and deepen your practice and guide you further on the path of spiritual clarity and self-discovery. Includes clear, dramatic black and white photographs.

Paper bound, 300 pages.
