Unlike many books about
yoga, Jivamukti Yoga focuses
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.
