There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Paperback Verified download. I have been exploring a yoga practice since I was 17 and stumbled across my mom's VHS copy of Raquel Welch doing what I later learned is the Bikram series sans heat, which I strongly recommend.
Almost 30 years later, I am still exploring and yoga never ceases to amaze me. My fascination with the practice, and desire to experience many different "forms" led me to take Kundalini yoga teacher training and to this day I rotate between that, Ashtanga and the wonderful variation on that theme which is presented by Bryan Kest and Bikram practiced at home.
Part of me admires people who can choose one path and walk it with utter devotion without meandering off to explore other areas because I am not that gal. My body loves to experience so many different things and each type of yoga I have embraced has brought with it some unique and beautiful lessons and healing. Like most yoga-nuts, I am familiar with Kino and have watched her videos on Youtube, which offer quick and powerful tips on various postures, many of which changed my entire approach and experience of something I had been doing for decades, so I already know what a remarkable teacher she is.
What surprises and delights me in this book is what a lovely writer she is as well. Her deep love and abiding passion for the practice comes through loud and clear, dripping from every well-chosen word.
This book is a gorgeous companion to ANY yoga practice, regardless of sequence or form. It is inspiring, informative and offers physical modifications and perspective which will benefit any style of practice.
She offers up her own story, which gives us a glimpse into her connection to yoga and what it means, as well as invaluable information for even an advanced beginner or intermediate yogi like breathing cues and drishtis.
While the sneak peek inside of the book on site doesn't show this, there are tons of beautiful photos as well, making it very clear and helpful for someone exploring the Primary Series for the first time or maybe someone who's rusty, ahem, or just loves the insight you receive when you open to a lot of teachers instead of just one or two. The book is so beautiful I wish they offered a hardcover edition with color photos inside, but even as-is I honestly feel that this book stands alongside "Light on Yoga", "Yoga Mala" and David Swenson's indispensable book in terms of content.
Yes, it is that good.
And I can tell you this I don't know of higher praise than that for a book about yoga. Kino provides a balanced, deep introduction to yoga. Her book is a quality supplement to practice with a teacher, even if you are not currently an Ashtanga student.
I've seen immediate improvement during guided Baptiste classes, simply from following the guidelines on breathing and drishti, covered in the first few chapters of the book. From my first read through, it is evident the book will have a permanent place in my library.
I'll probably wear it out. Poses are presented with large, clear pictures. Descriptions are detailed, often filling several pages.
A few things really stand out compared to other yoga books: Instructions are finely nuanced, without being repetitive or overwhelming.
They include the drishti for each pose, as well as how to coordinate movement into the pose with your inhale and exhale. The book offers extensive discussion of modifications, along with steps required to build into the full expressions of poses.
The spiritual side of yoga is presented in a very objective, factual manner. No corny catch phrases or hokey promises. Kino has done an incredible job capturing her years of experience teaching others. As a relative novice to Ashtanga, I did find piecing the book together into a home practice a little challenging.
Questions come up like: I've opted for 5 each. How far into the standing series do I go on day 1? I've opted to just try the whole thing. When is the closing series introduced into my practice? Asana Asanas , the postures practiced in yoga, comprise the third limb.
In the yogic view, the body is a temple of spirit, the care of which is an important stage of our spiritual growth. Through the practice of asanas, we develop the habit of discipline and the ability to concentrate, both of which are necessary for meditation.
Pranayama Generally translated as breath control, this fourth stage consists of techniques designed to gain mastery over the respiratory process while recognizing the connection between the breath, the mind, and the emotions. As implied by the literal translation of pranayama, "life force extension," yogis believe that it not only rejuvenates the body but actually extends life itself. You can practice pranayama as an isolated technique i.
Pratyahara Pratyahara , the fifth limb, means withdrawal or sensory transcendence.
It is during this stage that we make the conscious effort to draw our awareness away from the external world and outside stimuli. Keenly aware of, yet cultivating a detachment from, our senses, we direct our attention internally. The practice of pratyahara provides us with an opportunity to step back and take a look at ourselves.
This withdrawal allows us to objectively observe our cravings: habits that are perhaps detrimental to our health and which likely interfere with our inner growth.
Dharana As each stage prepares us for the next, the practice of pratyahara creates the setting for dharana, or concentration. Having relieved ourselves of outside distractions, we can now deal with the distractions of the mind itself. No easy task!
In the practice of concentration, which precedes meditation, we learn how to slow down the thinking process by concentrating on a single mental object: a specific energetic center in the body, an image of a deity, or the silent repetition of a sound. We, of course, have already begun to develop our powers of concentration in the previous three stages of posture, breath control, and withdrawal of the senses. In asana and pranayama, although we pay attention to our actions, our attention travels.
Our focus constantly shifts as we fine-tune the many nuances of any particular posture or breathing technique.
