Rusty Wells, the wildly popular San Francisco-based yoga teacher, brings all his warmth and enthusiasm to this guide to Bhakti Flow Yoga, a synthesis of Bhakti Yoga (the yoga of devotion) and Vinyasa Flow. It is a style of yoga that emphasizes a seamless connection between the breath and the movements of the body. Wells provides a wealth of information about yoga in general, and Bhakti Flow specifically, including a historical overview of yoga; a detailed discussion of the energetic practices in yoga; diet and lifestyle choices that will best support your practice; guidelines for students and teachers; and much more. Wells includes photos and detailed descriptions of each yoga pose, along with the physical and spiritual considerations for the poses, and two sample sequences. The Beginner’s Sequence is gentle, complete, and accessible for all body types, and the Surya Flow 1 Sequence is a strong one-hour vinyasa practice that can easily be a launching pad for more creativity.

Bhakti-Yoga is a real, genuine search after the Lord, a search beginning, continuing, and ending in love. One single moment of the madness of extreme love to God brings us eternal freedom. This love cannot be reduced to any earthly benefit, because so long as worldly desires last, that kind of love does not come. Bhakti is greater than karma, greater than Yoga, because these are intended for an object in view, while Bhakti is its own fruition, its own means and its own end. This edition includes the Swami's ten lectures on Bhakti Yoga, plus ten more on the Supreme Devotion called Para-Bhakti.

The long-awaited, complete guide to the popular, vigorous American method of yoga that is deeply rooted in ancient wisdom and scriptures “In this day and age of health and fitness trends, it is assuring to know that Sharon and David encourage their students to draw inspiration from the classical texts of Yoga and timeless scriptural sources. What I appreciate so much about David and Sharon is how they help their Yoga students to understand and appreciate the wisdom of all the great saints and jivamuktas who have contributed to raising consciousness. Ultimately, it is Self-Realization, that is the true goal of Yoga.” –SRI SWAMI SATCHIDANANDA Creators of the extremely popular Jivamukti Yoga method and cofounders of the New York City studios where it is taught, Sharon Gannon and David Life present their unique style of yoga for the first time in book form. As they explain their intensely physical and spiritual system of flowing postures, they provide inspiring expert instruction to guide you in your practice. 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 five-thousand-year-old traditions–the psychotherapeutic benefits that accrue with a steady practice, and the spiritual power that is set free when energy flows throughout the mind and body. Jivamukti Yoga, which means “soul liberation,” guides your body and soul into spiritual freedom, physical strength, peace of mind, better health, and Self-realization–the ultimate goal of any practice. Gannon and Life help you understand each of the practices that comprise the yoga path to enlightenment: AHIMSA–The Way of Compassion: choosing nonviolence, respecting all life, practicing vegetarianism, living free of prejudice ASANA–The Way of Connection to the Earth: postures and sequences, breathing, transforming energy, understanding the bandhas KARMA–The Way of Action: creating good karma, giving thanks NADAM–The Way of Sacred Music: appreciating the sacred sounds of yoga MEDITATION–The Way of the Witness: how to sit still and move inward BHAKTI–The Way of Devotion to God: living with love, grace, and peace Whatever yoga you practice, Jivamukti Yoga will help you to strengthen and deepen that practice and lead you onto a path of spiritual clarity and self-discovery. “If there is only one book you read about the practice of Yoga, this should be the one. Sharon and David are deeply dedicated students and teachers of Yoga who have the rare capacity to translate their profound understanding to the reader. This book is for anyone who wishes to find transformation through Yoga. I’m grateful for their work and teaching.” –STEPHAN RECHTSCHAFFEN, MD Co-founder & CEO, Omega Institute From the Trade Paperback edition.

For years the psoas has been a muscle mired in controversy. It has been linked to common postural and movement dysfunction including anterior pelvic tilt, hyperlordosis of the lumbar spine, and low back pain. Strategies to improve posture and reduce pain have primarily involved stretching the psoas and strengthening its antagonist, the glutes. This book identifies the functional anatomy, biomechanics, and motor control of the psoas and its role in core and hip stabilization. Integrating research with clinical experience, Evan Osar identifies the psoas's role on the hip, pelvis, and low back and demonstrates how to incorporate the psoas into functional movement patterns including squatting, lunging, and bending. The Psoas Solution includes corrective and functional exercise progressions for improving and integrating the psoas into daily activities. Health and fitness professionals will find this a valuable resource full of applicable strategies and exercises to incorporate into current rehabilitation or training programs.

Whether you're sixty, eighty, ninety, or somewhere in between, Meena Vad's inspirational, informative, and spiritually charged debut handbook, Yoga for Age 60+: A Guide to a New Journey of Safe Yoga Practice at Home, is a smart read with a smart goal. With an engaging style and meticulously crafted illustrations, Vad prompts each of us to take control of our bodies and minds, because when it comes to the later years-our health is in our hands. Go ahead-strike a pose. After years of studying Sanskrit, Vedic literature, and Ayurveda, and working as a Software Engineer, Meena Vad compares the human brain to a supercomputer. Each of us has a huge memory-with different software and hard drives-and it all comes down to experiences and perspective. To her, the practice of yoga isn't confined to postures. Yoga depends on one's individual aptitudes, abilities, and preferences. It's about helping each of us manage the unique treasures of our journey and recharge our bodies and minds. Yoga also celebrates our attitude of wonder, curiosity, and joy towards that which allows us to remain in the flow of life. In twelve succinct chapters like "Yoga of Postures," "Yoga of Breathing (Pranayama)," "Yoga of Meditation (Dhyana Yoga)," "Yoga of Devotion (Bhakti Yoga)," and "Yoga for Specific Conditions," the author shows readers how to tap into vitality, inner peace, and harmony. With over half the book dedicated to learning postures with the help of detailed descriptions and illustrations, Vad allows readers to begin at home at their own pace. A third component of this yoga tutorial is a section of poses for specific health conditions. This allows readers to customize practice sequences to fit their individual needs. Whether you're interested in yoga as a curative measure or for increased strength, the journey to better health begins here. In Yoga for Age 60+, readers learn how a small amount of time doing yoga creates meaningful improvements in one's life. Step by step instructions with illustrations are included for beginners and new ways for enhancing the practice are explained for practitioners. As a further distinction from other yoga guides, Vad shows the way of yoga by focusing on an individual's biological and psychological age rather than one's chronological age. Here's to increased strength and power. Here's to good health-at any age.
