Yoga For Body, Breath, and Mind: A Guide to Personal Reintegration
Yoga For Body, Breath, and Mind: A Guide to Personal Reintegration
Description
From the Jacket:

"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 practise 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.

Yoga combines movement with conscious breathing to relieve the mind of daily stress and to build the body's strength and stamina. Mohan's approach is breath-oriented. He focuses on relaxing the body through proper breathing, correct mental attitude, and fluid movements which increase the body's flexibiligy, strength, and inner stability. In this book, he sheds clear insights 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.

About the Author:

A.C. Mohan is an internationally recognized yoga master. Mohan's approach is based on 18 years of intense private study with the great Shri Krishnamacharya of India. He currently lives in Madras, India with his wife Indra where they maintain a yoga therapy practice. The Mohans conduct international workshops and train instructors and students in Europe and the United States.

The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
