Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ashtanga Yoga is a graceful, athletic type of yoga that has become extremely popular in recent years. Here, Kino MacGregor, a disciple of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, the great modern guru who developed Ashtanga Yoga, gives a comprehensive view of the practice and shows how Ashtanga is fundamentally a path of spiritual transformation and personal development.

MacGregor delves into the history and tradition of Ashtanga Yoga and reveals how its philosophy manifests in contemporary lifestyle and dietary choices. She also explains the essential connection of breath, posture, and gaze that is the core of the practice. Her clear, step-by-step instruction of the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series—including standing, seated, backbending, twisting, hip-opening, and closing postures—is a wonderful initiation for those who are new to the practice, and it will motivate experienced yogis toward perfection of the form. Throughout, MacGregor shares her own personal yoga journey and her devotion to yoga as a path of self-realization in a way that will inspire all practitioners.

Synopsis:

Ashtanga Yoga is a popular and athletic type of yoga developed by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, one of the great modern gurus. In this book, Kino MacGregor, one of Jois's disciples, explains Ashtanga's history and tradition; the essential connection of breath, posture, and gaze that is the core of the practice; how Ashtanga philosophy manifests in dietary and lifestyle choices; and how Ashtanga is fundamentally a path of spiritual transformation and development. MacGregor draws from her own personal experiences to illuminate this fascinating practice. She also describes and demonstrates the entire Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series in 125 halftones, which includes standing, seated, backbending, opening, and closing postures.
