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. Awesome! Looks like a great book. I just got into Yoga and it is wonderful! I feel so good after I do Yoga…I feel more connected to myself and my mental strength has become stronger :)

  2. Would be a great reference and complement for our prison visits where we include yoga in our mindfulness practice!

  3. This book would be wonderful to have. Because of my body shape, I struggle with having good posture. Yoga would be the best way to work with my posture issues.

  4. This appears to be an unique way of approaching mindfulness through the gateway of posture. I expect this to be a very interesting way to practice yoga as the union of opposites. Training body & mind in the yoga of integrated alignment. Perhaps this is where I may begin to understand the heart sutra essence?

  5. I would love to win this book. I enjoy learning more about all aspects of yoga.this book is what i must read next and add to my collection

  6. Hope it mentions that the best alignment is what is appropriate for each person’s unique physiology.

  7. I have started practicing daily since May and am slowly adding books on yoga to my library. This one, based on the first chapter, since to be very interesting and insightful.
