Yoga is prized for its benefits to the body, providing healing, rejuvenation, overall toning and solutions to a host of other physical problems, but in this guide Bija Bennett seeks to bring yoga back to basics, seeking emotional and spiritual wellness through yoga.
For years, yoga has been prized for its benefits to the body, providing healing, rejuvenation, overall toning and solutions to a host of other physical problems. Recently, however, author Bija Bennett has sought to bring yoga back to basics, inspiring instructors and practitioners alike to rediscover the emotional and spiritual wellness that yoga can bring. Drawing on her training in yoga therapy, dance and meditation, Bija Bennett has created a yoga programme that takes full advantage of the mind-body connection. Based on the classical eight-fold path of yoga, her system offers a broad range of simple mind-body techniques that can positively affect our emotional well-being, including the dynamic interplay of movements, breathing exercises, meditations, lifestyle skills, rituals, gestures and healing sounds. Each technique is presented in a way that is true to Bennett's background in the tradition of Viniyoga, which allows the reader to adapt the programme to his or her specific needs. More than 70 photographs clearly demonstrate a variety of movements and poses to make this book easy to use for any age or level of experience.
