Book Giveaway! Yoga: Critical Alignment

Book coverLeave a comment below for a chance to win! Relax your body, build deep core strength, and find new ease of movement in your practice with Yoga: Critical Alignment.

As a serious student or teacher of yoga, you may have a strong, vigorous physical practice, but is it optimized for your body and mind? The key to a sustainable yoga practice is to target alignment and strength at the most fundamental level—the skeleton. This cultivates ease and flow in not only the body but also in your mental and emotional health—invigorating your practice and restoring balance on and off the mat.

In Yoga: Critical Alignment, asana, anatomy, and yoga philosophy are blended together to create core stability in the body with innumerable benefits. You’ll learn to:

• Identify unconscious habitual patterns, and see how these habits become sources of pain, stress, and even injury.
• Interrupt habitual patterns from the inside out, linking the body and mind through asana, pranayama, and meditation.
• Enhance the body’s mobility and deepen body awareness.
• Refine inversions, standing postures, forward bends, backbends, twists, and seated postures through precise, subtle physiological adjustments.
• Plan vigorous, intuitive sequences for a home practice or in a teaching environment.

  1. I have recently started teaching yoga in my community. I find it very interesting to watch practitioners’ bodies and see how they are all different. I am curious to learn more about alignment and sequencing, as I know it has a huge affect on how yoga is experienced in the body.

  2. Very nice – I live in a rural area with little access to yoga classes, this looks like something that would supplement a home practice!

  3. i need this. i am trying to learn how to like my body since i am overcome with self-loathing. seriously. and i need to lessen my anxiety, so yoga will help. namaste.

  4. I am reading The Heart of Yoga in it Desikachar says it is the breath that brings balance. I would like to bring this teaching to the study of critical alignment to help my home practice.

  5. Gratitude to the folks who put this book together and the people passing it on.
    Gratitude for Yoga and Alignment
