Book Description:

“Astanga Yoga for You” provides a simple and practical introduction to this most energetic and popular branch of yoga. Astanga works by synchronizing the breath with set sequences of postures, the first of which is known as the primary series – producing internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs.

The benefits are improved circulation, a strong, light, supple body, and a calm mind. Experienced yoga teacher Tara Fraser takes us through each posture of the primary series one step at a time and shows us how to develop a workout that is safe but always challenging – and suitable for our level of ability and our lifestyle. The practical core of the book presents the Sun Salutations (Astanga’s warm-ups), the primary series and the finishing sequence – over 60 postures practised in the classic set program.

More than 200 colour photographs guide you through the movements. Special boxes on each page offer additional information or insight into a posture, or explain how to adapt a posture if you need to. Filled with information about the historical and practical aspects of Astanga Yoga, as well as the advantages for mind, body and spirit, “Astanga Yoga for You” is the essential companion on your yoga journey.
