Description - The Power Of Ashtanga Yoga by Kino MacGregor
"Ashtanga Yoga is a popular and athletic type of yoga developed by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, one of the great modern gurus."
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.
This book is appropriate for those who are new to Ashtanga Yoga and want a solid, engaging introduction to the practice, and for more experienced practitioners who will be inspired by MacGregor and interested in her expertise and her holistic view of the practice.
