An introduction to the fundamental principles of a vast and fascinating practice
For complete beginners or those who have tried yoga in the past and wish to rekindle their interest, this book is the perfect invitation to take up the challenge of yoga. It presents a step-by-step guide to classical yoga postures and covers getting started, good posture, standing and seated poses, and backbends and twists. It also explores how to relax, how to breathe efficiently, and how to incorporate the bandhas (the chin lock, the root lock, and the stomach lift). To be fit in body, steady in mind, and strong in spirit are all attributes that build self-confidence and inner strength, and it is the author's firm belief that the practice of yoga has a subtle influence on improving the quality of our lives.
