A lot of the yoga practiced in studios across the U.S. is what's known as "yang" styles of yoga-vigorous, fast-paced classes like vinyasa, power, and Ashtanga. But there's another equally important style that's completely opposite: yin yoga. The practice of yin yoga is based on ancient Chinese philosophies and Taoist principles which believe there are pathways of Qi (energy) that run through our bodies. By stretching and deepening into poses, we're opening up any blockages and releasing that energy to flow freely. This book is a new perspective on this ancient practice. Learn the difference between Yin and other forms of yoga. Find out how to do Yin asanas. Revel in the pictures of yogis practicing the asanas. Up your practice with specifically-tailored Yin Yoga flows. In this book, you will learn: ◆What Yin Yoga Is ◆The Difference Between Yin and Yan ◆The Method of Practicing Yin Yoga ◆Twenty (20) Yin Yoga Asanas ◆Five (5) Yang Counter-Pose Asanas ◆Three (3) Yin Yoga FlowsThis book contains pictures of all Yin Yoga poses and counter-poses described. You too can improve your health, increase serenity, and improve mindfulness with a Yin Yoga practice.

This book is an exploration of the neglected area of yoga and hypermobility. Hypermobile people are generally over-represented in yoga classes, yet often go unrecognised and receive little guidance about how to practise in hypermobility-friendly ways. Many yoga teachers have received little or no training about how to work with this vulnerable population. The book considers what hypermobility is and offers teachers general guidelines as well as specific practical techniques for including hypermobile students safely and effectively in classes. For hypermobile students themselves there are lots of suggestions for making a yoga practice helpful and beneficial. Also including information about co-existing conditions, the intersection of hypermobility with neurodiversity, and much more, Hypermobility on the Yoga Mat is the go-to resource for both hypermobile yoga practitioners and yoga teachers encountering hypermobile students.

“So far lawyers are the only ones getting any money.” “There’s no middle ground. We only talk through lawyers.” “I open my mouth and we end up screaming at each other.” Sound familiar? What if there was a way to divorce with a minimum of hostility, time, and expense? It is attainable, even if you are working towards these goals without the cooperation of your spouse. The Yoga of Divorce advocates that we shift our reactions and embrace the notion of cooperative opposition, the idea that the same non-adversarial process that works on the yoga mat can be used at the negotiation table. The key to The Yoga of Divorce’s strategy is to 'park ego at the door'. If we stop trying to 'win' but instead seek a solution that is fair to both sides, we make much smoother progress. The mindful practice of cooperative opposition can simultaneously resolve physical stress and social conflict by intentionally balancing opposite forces. It might seem simple, but it takes conscious effort. We urgently need to make calm decisions at those times when being calm is most difficult—such as in the midst of emotional crisis. When stakes are highest we feel most triggered to attack. For the sake of our children, our wealth, and our personal well-being, we need to work past negative emotions and put ego in its place. Only then will we find lasting peace and amicable resolutions.

Your Spine, Your Yoga is the long-awaited second book of the Your Body, Your Yoga series. Focusing on the axial body, from the tip of the tailbone to the top of the skull, Your Spine, Your Yoga will explain how your body is unique and how this uniqueness affects your yoga practice. The latest anatomical understanding of the spine and its biomechanical abilities is described in varying levels of detail, for the novice to the experienced reader. Applying these principles to a safe and effective yoga practice holds a few surprises: you may discover that not every pose in yoga is a good idea for you, given the nature of your spine and the way we have previously been taught to stress it. Stability is more important than mobility for the vast majority of people, although many yoga classes promote the opposite view. Your Spine, Your Yoga offers alternative perspectives and prescriptions for a yoga practice that is spine sparing and strength building, based upon your unique biology and biography and your unique intentions

" Confronted by the sudden realization that her entire life no longer fits her, magazine editor Lindsey Lewis promptly has a quarter-life crisis. She leaves her former dream job, seven-year relationship, and home. Pursued by anxiety and panic attacks, Lindsey embarks on a new path that takes her to a studio apartment in Vancouver, a one-bedroom in Paris and then Greece, and time after time to a yoga mat. Along the way, she meets three strangers who will change her life, her perception of what's possible, and ultimately, her understanding of herself. On the walkway along the edge of the ocean, she meets Iairos, dressed in white, tanned from the sun, white hair and bald head capping a beaming face. He shows up inexplicably at the precise moments when she is feeling alone, bringing with him a very distinct message. The Navajo medicine man who finds her in a crowd to tell her she is the one he has been waiting for brings with him a gift and a story that can't possibly be true but is. And the orange-clad swami from India reveals to her a life-changing truth about who she really is. REVIEW ""A former editor's charming quarter-life awakening account. Lewis has crafted a lively, impressionistic tale of her personal transformation that reads like an upbeat chick-lit novel, complete with a happy ending that features a chiropractor spouse and new town house...An engaging debut."" - Kirkus Review ""Lindsey writes and speaks from the heart. I'm always inspired by her work!"" Lori Deschene, founder, tinybuddha.com ""In time, when the butterfly's new wings have strengthened, off she flies into her new life.

From the Gita to the Grail Exploring Yoga Stories Western Myths

In this book, Bernie Clark looks at the spiritual stories found in the West that create a base map for our lives and then looks at the stories found in the East to see how they could improve our base maps.

What is the meaning of Shiva dancing on a dwarf named Avidya? Why does Vishnu sleep upon an endless snake? To what did the Buddha awaken? What do we mean by soul? The practice of Yoga has become quite common and popular in the West; however, the stories of Yoga are still strange to Western ears. What do these ancient symbols mean, what are they trying to teach us, and how should we incorporate the knowledge skillfully into our Western lifestyle? By looking at the myths of Yoga along with the stories that have influenced Western culture, we are presented with opportunities to select the best of both worlds, and create new maps to help guide us through the uncertainties of modern living. Stories are fun! Important stories guide us and educate us; they create mental models which work at an unconscious level to help us navigate through our modern society and govern our reactions to the ups-and-downs of life; they provide meaning and purpose for our life; and our stories entertain and entrance us. In this book, Bernie Clark looks at the spiritual stories found in the West that create a base map for our lives and then looks at the stories found in the East to see how they could improve our base maps. The stories offered are mix of light-hearted and enjoyable, and deep and profound. The importance of stories East and West are illustrated through the model proposed by the great 20th century mythologist, Joseph Campbell: myths, or stories, serve four great functions - the mystical, the cosmological, the sociological and the psychological function. The stories chosen illustrate these four functions of mythology and show how we can take these stories into ourselves to create a deeper experience of life. "You may find that, with a proper introduction, mythology will catch you." Joseph Campbell: The Power of Myth

Why practice yoga or Yin Yoga in particular? YinSights, a new book by Bernie Clark, has the answers. In YinSights, Clark explores the benefits of yoga, as viewed by both the Eastern and Western worlds and relates how it affects the body and mind. Although more and more students are embracing the Yin-side of yoga, Yin Yoga is still relatively unknown. Filling a void in yoga literature, YinSights serves as a practical guide for students interested in understanding Yin Yoga. YinSights is divided into two main sections. The first investigates the benefits of yoga on the physical body, the energetic body, and the mind/emotional body. Clark presents three points of view those of the yogis in India, the Daoists in China, and the medical and scientific researchers of the West. The second section explores the practice of Yin Yoga in detail, and several flows are offered each with different themes. Slower versions of the normally active or yang Sun Salutations are provided, as well as even gentler ways to stimulate the flow of prana, chi, or energy. While YinSights illustrates how to practice Yin Yoga, it is not just for those seeking knowledge about Yin Yoga in particular. The book also discusses the advantages of all styles of yoga and will be of interest to every yoga student. Bernie Clark's Yinsights is one of the best yoga resources now available, no matter what your preferred style of practice. Paul Grilley, author of Yin Yoga"
