Description

Yoga combines movement with conscious breathing to relieve the mind of daily stress and to build the body's strength and stamina. Mohans approach is breath-oriented. He focuses on relaxing the body through proper breathing, correct mental attitude, and fluid movements which increase the body's flexibility, strength, and inner stability.

In this book, he sheds clear Insight on the Yoga philosophy, meditation, yoga postures (Asanas), and breathing (Pranayama) that allow anyone to find a deep sense of relaxation and well-being. Over 300 illustrations and photographs will help you develop your own yoga practice from 20 essential Asanas which can be adapted to anyone's body shape, age, level of fitness, and experience.




EDITORIAL REVIEW:

"This is ground-breaking work and an essential reference tool for any practitioner.”
== Yoga Journal

"An extraordinary hatha manual… one you can read, savor, and refer to again and again as your practice unfolds. It is distinguished from its peers by its emphasis on individualized therapy and its translation of the philosophy of the yoga sutras into everyday practice."
== Yoga International

“Why does this yoga manual stand out from the rest? It’s the special material that Mohan calls personal reintegration."
== Hinduism Today

“Yoga for body, breath, and mind offers much for both beginner and expert to experience a new depth in their yoga practice."
== Napra Trade Journal

“I believe it to be the most useful yoga book I have yet seen, and feel it is invaluable to yoga teachers and students."
== John Pace, Certified Yoga Teacher, Integral Yoga International
