Sleeping Bag Yoga: Stretch! Relax! Energize! for Hikers, Bikers and Kayakersby Erin Widman
Synopses & Reviews
This gifty book of yoga positions is geared toward hikers, bikers, and kayakers. The basic poses can be performed in or on top of a sleeping bag, within the confines of a tent. Positions have been renamed (for example, "Arches" instead of the Sanskrit Setu Banda) to make yoga accessible to a wider audience. The book is divided into two sections: a basic sequence and a strengthening series. The basic poses require minimal body movement and can be performed within a tent. This sequence of poses is relaxing when performed from start to finish and invigorating when the sequence is reversed. The twelve poses of the strengthening series are designed to improve balance, coordination, and endurance and prepare you for a new day of outdoor travel. While there are many yoga books out there, Sleeping Bag Yoga remains the only book that caters to lovers of the outdoors. New material in the updated edition includes seventeen new poses, several Sanskrit word meditations, and color illustrations.
We all have an outdoor enthusiast in our lives, and what better gift to give them than flexibility? Even in a small tent, atop a sleeping bag, these handy moves help loosen muscles and provide strength and invigoration. Designed to improve balance, coordination, and endurance, Sleeping Bag Yoga assists any traveler with their planned recreation and includes poses specifically designed for particular activities like cycling and hiking. This new edition contains 17 new poses, Sanskrit word meditations, and useful color illustrations.
Here is the greatest invention for the outdoor recreation crowd since Gore-tex. This simple book of yoga routines is specifically designed for outdoor enthusiasts, illustrating stretches and relaxation techniques that can be performed in a tent. Featuring color photographs throughout, this is a must-pack for hikers, cyclists, and kayakers who push themselves in pursuit of fun all day long, only to suffer cramps and stiffness at night. There's no need to attend weekly yoga classes or learn Sanskrit to derive the wonderful benefits of the world's oldest form of bodywork. These positions have been chosen to improve the performance of anyone involved in human-powered recreation.
