According to the National Yoga Association, September is National Awareness Month! If you are looking for a holistic mind-body connection, yoga is the exercise for you! Yoga combines strengthening and stretching poses with breathing and mediation. There are many different forms of yoga. So be sure to find one that's right for you to stay strong and in shape! Here some of the latest yoga books from our health collection to get you started!
For years, yoga books have asked readers to bend over backward (literally!) to conform to their physical demands. It's time for the opposite-for readers to demand that yoga conforms to their individual needs. It's time for a yoga book to reflect the broader population who would benefit from a yoga practice geared toward them. This book offers yoga for everyone- big, small, elderly, pregnant, disabled-everyone. It's why that word is in the title. No matter who you are, you can do all 50 poses in this book. And then you can perform all 16 sequences, which combine different poses into one singular experience that focus on specific physical and mental issues.
No matter who you are or what you look or feel like, yes, you can keep doing yoga-and Yoga for Everyone will show you how!
Before Andrea Marcum was a sought after celebrity yoga teacher, she was someone who thought she couldn't do yoga because she couldn't be still. Now after sixteen years of teaching yoga, she works with network executives, global brands, Hollywood actresses, and everyone in between.Yoga is the yoke of body, mind, and spirit, and in Close to Om, Marcum offers a program that teaches all three aspects of yoga. It is a program that combines the teaching of poses with the exploration of yoga philosophy and insight into meditation and mindfulness. By the end of Close to Om, you will not only know a lot about yoga and its poses, but you'll also know more about you: who you are, what you want, and how to get there-on and off your mat. The progression in Close to Om is the architecture of every yoga practice-and will show you that how you do your yoga is how you do your life.
