This morning we put 2000 books in our garage. The shipment arrived of our Beginning and Intermediate Manuals plus the Bose book. It is a lot of heavy boxes full of a lot of hours of blood, sweat and tears.
We feel compelled to offer the information in these books. It is difficult to find good, clear instruction on yoga practice, whether you are a beginner or an advancing student. As we were learning we searched high and low for teachers, books and videos. We continue to. We want these books to be useful, easy to understand and packed full of information.
They are designed with a coil binding so they lie flat on the floor. You can set them next to you while you practice and refer to the instructions and setups.
We included as much information as we could about each posture. Why do we do them? What are their benefits? Are there any tricks or shortcuts? What should we be careful of? Each posture has its own page of explanation separate of the pages that describe its execution.
The instructions for each posture are what we are most proud of. We have never seen a book with this approach before. We break down each step of the postures and include a picture of the step. Each turn of the foot, each bend of the elbow has a photo and a description of what is happening in the body. So execution of even the most complex of postures becomes very clear.
This journal honors my ongoing experience with the practice, study and teaching of yoga.
