andlt;Bandgt;FROM SWEAT TO andlt;Iandgt;SAMADHI:andlt;/Iandgt; The Path of ASTANGA YOGAandlt;/Bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;Iandgt;Beyond Power Yogaandlt;/Iandgt; presents and explores the andlt;Iandgt;completeandlt;/Iandgt; journey of the classical andlt;Iandgt;astanga yogaandlt;/Iandgt; system, from power yoga to meditation and liberation. Bender Birch's first book, the groundbreaking andlt;Iandgt;Power Yoga,andlt;/Iandgt; introduced one level of andlt;Iandgt;astanga yogaandlt;/Iandgt; to mainstream America — a high-heat, high-energy mind/body workout. Now, andlt;Iandgt;Beyond Power Yogaandlt;/Iandgt; presents all eight levels, or limbs, of this ancient method — a total practice for body and soul. andlt;BRandgt; Drawing a parallel between andlt;Iandgt;astanga yoga'andlt;/Iandgt;s eight limbs and the mind/body energy centers andlt;Iandgt;(chakras)andlt;/Iandgt; of Eastern philosophy, Bender Birch shows us how we can balance and heal our body, focus and relax our mind, amplify and direct our energy andlt;Iandgt;(prana),andlt;/Iandgt; and ultimately reclaim our spiritual connection to Universal Consciousness. Each chapter offers specific practices to help the reader uncover and experience the insights of the andlt;Iandgt;astanga yogaandlt;/Iandgt; journey. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;OL TYPE="1" START="0"andgt; andlt;LIandgt;The YAMAS: Exploring the Fundamentals andlt;LIandgt;The NIYAMAS: Doing the Work andlt;LIandgt;ASANA: Practicing the Postures andlt;LIandgt;PRANAYAMA: Breathing Mindfully andlt;LIandgt;PRATYAHARA: Turning Inward andlt;LIandgt;DHARANA: Developing Concentration andlt;LIandgt;DHYANA: Experiencing Meditation andlt;LIandgt;SAMADHI: Living Joyfully andlt;/OLandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Presented in the down-to-earth illuminating style and inspiring voice of the author, illustrated with easy-to-follow photos, andlt;Bandgt;plus a special andlt;Iandgt;wallandlt;/Iandgt; chart of the andlt;Iandgt;asanaandlt;/Iandgt; sequences,andlt;/Bandgt; andlt;Iandgt;Beyond Power Yogaandlt;/Iandgt; offers a short form of the dynamic mind/body power yoga method, then journeys through the deeper levels of spiritual practice.
