Book Description

This highly anticipated live recording of Bryan's Long, Slow & Deep routine will help you move into areas deeply and safely with a combination of deep stretching poses. Only on rare occasions does Bryan teach this routine, but now you can have your very own recording. Balance your usual regimen of vinyasa (flowing) routines with this deep exploration. The live, approximately 90-minute recording was done at his very popular Santa Monica, CA studio, and is in audio CD format, accompanied by a beautiful, 8" x 8" spiral bound instructional booklet. (Like the other titles in the series, the spiral binding makes it easy to keep the book open and follow along.) The audio CDs are segmented into 14 tracks for easy repeating or forwarding. The booklet has photographs of the asanas (positions) which track the recording, along with detailed written instruction for key poses provided by Bryan. A nice treat: Bryan Kest is one of the two models photographed for the asanas.

In addition to being an excellent, complete yoga routine for your library, the CDs are a compact format perfect for travelers. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Not my cup of tea
I ordered this CD along with spinal strengthening. I liked the spinal cd better as they are VERY similar. This is a lot of forward bending and some poses that are bad for the knees. As a previous reviewer said, it WILL cook your hamstrings. Be forewarned, Bryan uses sexual imagery, such as "crotch candy" and crotch asana" I found this offense at first, but I block him out. Ultimately, I returned this CD and kept the Spinal one.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not for beginners, but pretty awesome for experienced yogis
If you don't have a regular yoga practice you will be overwhelmed by this yoga workout. Bryan has you go through some pretty intense poses and if you have tight hamstrings you're in for a powerful experience! I first tried this CD after a particularly stressful workday, and I emerged feeling relaxed, liked I'd washed the tension away. So I recommend it for someone who's all keyed up and would like to chill out. Sometimes doing the "power" yoga vinyasa style all the time isn't what your body needs. But even though you're not doing a zillion chaturangas, this is a challenging workout all the same. It's challenging for your mind - though it's two hours of intense stretching, the time just zips by as you concentrate on your breath. As a final note, there are some poses he goes through that may not be so helpful for folks with tricky knees, particularly as this is a CD and the booklet pictures aren't very clear. Bryan doesn't cue options here, so if you feel like somethings not for you, don't do it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing and Orginal
I have purchased all of Bryan Kest audio CD's and have taken his classes for years but this is the most challenging and orginal of them all. Holding poses for up to five minutes takes so much more focus than flowing thru a vinyasa flow class. If you really want to challenge your mind and have some variety in your yoga practice buy this CD now. If you can't attend one of Bryan's classes this is the next best thing especially if you travel. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An ideal introductory "how to" guide for the novice.
All elements of yoga practice both spiritual and physical are brought to play in a title packed with black and white photos illustrating techniques and positions. From technical discussions of muscles used in these positions to step-by-step directions, Yoga: Mastering the Basics is packed with clear information any beginner will appreciate.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best yoga books I've seen
As a beginning yoga student, I've consulted several books to support my practice and this is one of the best I've found. This book is slightly oversized and printed on thick, glossy paper so it feels really nice to use. The photos, drawings and text are clear and concise and the photos show modifications for different abilities. The book features two asana sequences and chapters on pranayama, relaxation and meditation. The chapter that sets this book apart has sections on problem areas such as hips, hamstrings, abdomen and back. The chapter shows you which poses in the asana sequences help in these areas and then shows additional poses. This is the only book I would recommend to the yoga beginner. ... Read more

Rodney Yee, named the "stud-muffin guru" by Time magazine, is one of the most sought-after yoga instructors in the world, packing classrooms in Hawaii and California and selling millions of copies of his 17 videos. Yoga: The Poetry of the Body is his first book, and is as much a compendium of practical instruction on the most common poses as it is a dialogue on Yee's philosophy of yoga.

Yee decided to write The Poetry of the Body to give in-depth information that's impossible to include in his videos, and this is where the strength of the book lies. He delves into exquisite detail about the proper posture, breathwork, and positioning for the 45 most common yoga asanas, devoting several step-by-step photos to each one. (However, sometimes the book goes overboard on the detail--there are more than 400 pictures, and the photo meant to illustrate where the groin is located is hardly necessary!) Yee includes eight yoga practices--the "playful practice," "relaxation practice," and those based on "grounding," "falling," "breath," "resistance," and "movement"--each a series of a dozen or so poses designed to help the reader "self-study" and discover the ways in which the mind and the body interact.

Although the poses in these "practices" are nothing out of the ordinary, Yee's incredibly muscular and supple physique may intimidate rather than inspire novice practitioners, and his sincere but frequently corny instructions on how to fully embrace the poses may well be a turn-off ("Surrender the seed of your body into the earth, water it, and let it blossom"). Diehard fans will also be disappointed that much of the book is devoted to the opinions and contemplative creative writing of his coauthor, Nina Zolotow, one of Yee's students. --Erica Jorgensen ...

4-0 out of 5 stars A great start to those who are entering a yoga practice
This was a book that I had to have because of Rodney Yee, I've used many of his Gaiam produced videos for years, and Power Yoga for strength is my favorite. When I purchased the book, I was expecting a very fundamental approach to yoga poses, and detailed instruction and a bit of Rodney's philosophy on the subject. I was not wrong in any of these things, but there was also the writings of Nina Zolotow. I could have done without her influence in the book, but that does not discount the very comprehensive yoga series that are in this book. From the playful practice up to the very detailed sun salutation, this book is a great way to start yoga or to have as a reference book. A Very Good investiment, in my opinion...I'm proud to have it among my books.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice book
I have a lot of respect for Rodney Yee, so I had to buy this book. I enjoy his tapes, and of course he's very famous, but there's a reason that he makes the big money, and it's not just because he looks good in those little shorts! If you've ever been to his workshops, you'll find out that he really is that good. He has lots of subtle tips and tricks that can make a big difference in your practice, and I enjoy his call to be playful and let the postures breathe. This book is quite different from other yoga books, and it captures his playful side and gives insight into his personal views on yoga and life. The postures are definitely beginner's stuff, but advanced practitioners and teachers will benefit from his descriptions and will likely find a new way to look at an old pose. The dialogue between Yee and Zolotow is pretty interesting, but I have to say that Zolotow's stories that were sprinkled throughout the book seem to be out of place. I guess she wanted to publish them somewhere and this was her chance, but I think they should have been edited out. All in all, I'm glad I bought it. It makes a nice addition to my yoga library and I've found some valuable advice to share with my students.

3-0 out of 5 stars A Mixed Bag - 3 Stars is a Stretch...
I was really looking forward to this book, as I've found Yee's videos (and Patricia Walden's as well) of great use for my practice. But this book was a real letdown. Apart from the photos (the best part), which would be perfect for anyone beginning a yoga practice, there's not much to recommend. The "interview" portions between Yee and Zolotow are totally unnecessary, if not outright annoying; it's more like a schmooze session between "student" and "master". C'mon, already. Isn't that what appearances on "Oprah" are for? And the poetry would be better left in a separate volume - they don't really give anything to the book. All put together, it comes off as a little too "Real Simple" if you know what I mean. For some reason, after reading about all of the interview portions I could stomach, I came away with Yee having this distinct "nobody understands yoga but me" attitude. It could be the way it was written, but it comes off as more than a little prissy. A little humility would be nice, you know? Thanks just the same, but I'd rather re-read the truly essential "Light on Yoga" by B.K.S. Iyengar - THAT'S the book you should buy. Check out Yee's videos for guidance, but buy this only if you want a good looking coffee table book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Makes yoga accessible for everyone
I have been practicing yoga at home with videos for about 2 years from now, and Rodney Yee is my favorite instructor. However, I've heard some people criticize his videos as being too mystical or too fast-paced, especially for beginners. In this book, Yee makes yoga accessible to everyone in part by making HIMSELF accessible--ie, via the reprinted conversations with his co-author, Nina Zolotow. The interviews allow the reader to see Yee as a real person rather than the yogi "master" he is often considered to be (he even jokes about this title in the book!). Furthermore, although he does discuss Eastern influences in his own yoga practice, he places great emphasis on yoga being fun and enjoyable and encourages modifications rather than a strive for "perfect" form.

In addition to talking about his craft, Yee offers eight varied yoga practices appropriate for beginning students; each practice focuses on a theme, such as "falling" or "breathing." Beautifully simple black and white photographes of either Yee or his wife, Donna Fone, performing the poses accompany each practice. In the last section, "Posing and Reposing," each of the 45 poses utilized in the practices is photo-illustrated and described in detail. Although this book is aimed at beginners, it will stimulate the thought of any aspiring yogi. Highly recommended!

4-0 out of 5 stars Unique and Masterful
I really loved this book! It was so helpful; the pictures are excellent (although a little small), and the descriptions about each pose are detailed and personal. I actually felt like my postures improved as a result of reading this book -- and I've been doing YOGA for 30 years!

One of the really neat things is he tells you how many repetitions of each posture to do and how many breaths to hold them for -- beginners find this enormously helpful.

I highly recommend it! http://breathoflifeyoga.vermotion.net ... Read more

Book Description

You've asked for it, and you got it: an advanced Bryan Kest routine. We all like the physical challenge that Bryan provides within the context of yoga. Practice working at your edge while maintaining a healthy approach to your practice. This is the third in a series of live recordings just made available to the general public. The recording is of one of Bryan's 90 minute classes at his very popular Santa Monica, CA studio, in audio CD format accompanied by a beautiful, 8" x 8" spiral bound instructional booklet. (Like the other titles in the series, the spiral binding makes it easy to keep the book open and follow along.) The audio CD is segmented into 18 tracks for easy repeating or forwarding. The booklet has over 100 photographed asanas (positions) that track the recording, along with detailed written instruction for key poses provided by Bryan. A nice treat: Bryan Kest is one of the two models photographed for the asanas.

In addition to being an excellent, complete yoga routine for your library, the CDs are a compact format perfect for travelers. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Downward Facing "Doggy"?
He lost me with Downward Facing "Doggy". It got worse with his use of the word "fricken". Then I couldn't take any more when he started talking about making love to his lover. All the while I'm having to listen to his irritating lisp. Terrible CD! Doesn't move along at all, boring!

5-0 out of 5 stars "Ohhhh Yeaaahhhhh! "
Yes, new places are cooking! I thought I was in good shape until I tried this one! I never did so many chaturangas in one class! Yes, my muscles are sore also!

The fact that there is no music on this CD did throw me at first, but I got used to it. Also, Brian's voice is not as soothing and melodious as Shiva Rea's or Rodney Yee's but he is quite entertaining! I also like the fact that he brings the true practice of Yoga to us in a down to earth way.

In short, I loved every minute of it!

5-0 out of 5 stars new places cooking...
I am well acquainted with the videos and DVD's of Bryan Kest and he is one of my favorite yoga teachers. His style is very warm and relaxing, not uptight. He concentrates in this CD on the breathing first and foremost, then the poses, stressing that you should follow what your own body needs and can do. That said, this is a really good, intense workout that makes muscles sore that you didn't even know that you had. I am not usually one to do ninety minutes of working out on a regular basis, but the time goes fast in this workout. None of the poses are especially difficult to do, although there are a few that I did in the modified format. Advanced power yoga refers, as Bryan says, to your body awareness. I am aware of mine - it is still sore! (but in a good way!) The workout leaves you relaxed yet invigorated and I feel that I can concentrate easier on the poses in this audio only format where I am not distracted with someone else's form. Another interesting aside is that this CD recording is of an actual class - you can hear Bryan interacting with the students, helping with poses, you can even hear the bus go by outside once or twice! It feels as if you are there ---and I find that his narrative is comforting, but also humorous sometimes and helps break up any tension you might be feeling going into the pose. A welcome Workout to anyone's collection.
Namaste. ... Read more

I loved this book, took lots of notes, and review it often. It provides things to think about in yoga poses, symbolism and possibilities. Great book! Covers about 12 poses.

5-0 out of 5 stars An authentic gift of wisdom and of knowledge.
This work by Swami Sivananda Radha brings the meaning of yoga to life. She points the way, through questioning and through thought provoking concepts. As she explains the ancient asanas she provides us with a key as to how best to know and understand the messages and the secrets that are locked in our bodies. It is a powerful work, as through her sharing of her knowledge and her experiences she encourages the readers to practice and to experience for themselves. It is through our own inner knowing that the Teachings are alive.Through our listening and living the language of the symbols and the metaphores in our daily experiences that we connect with our own power and our own connection with the Divine. It is a living gift, an opportunity that is to be valued and cherished as you value and cherish your own daily living. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Extremely useful for this Bikram student
I believe one reviewer missed the point of this book. It is not intended to be a do-it-yourself yoga course. It is a guide to the yoga student who attends a Bikram yoga class. I'm fortunate to have a Bikram studio only two blocks from my house in San Francisco. Classes are crowed and instructors don't have time for a lot of one-on-one instruction. That's why it is helpful to read through the descriptions, especially after you are familiar with the poses. It gives lots of hints which cause lightbulbs to go off in my head. Bikram at home? First of all, you *must* have a super-heated room and a wall-sized mirror. And an instructor is mandatory, especially if you are beginning. It's not yoga for sissies, and I'm pretty much a sissy. But you will be surprised how good you feel about yourself after completing 90 minutes of stretching,sweating and pushing yourself to your limits. The other thing is you get maximum benefit from your workout even if you are beginning, as long as your pose is in good form.

A great thing about the photographs is that he uses a variety of ages and body types so that no one is excluded. Thin, fat, young and old are all there. And I was delighted with Bikram's sense of humor--he's a great showman! He's not afraid to be silly and by doing so he takes some of the sanctimoniousness out of yoga.

5-0 out of 5 stars My experience - it works!
I have been using Bikram's Beginning Yoga Class (the book alone, no instructor) and found it to be tremendously effective for improving flexibility, strength, conditioning, and energy levels. I do my best to follow the instructions to the letter and perform each pose as well as I can, and it really works.

I knew nothing about yoga before I started, so I intentionally chose this book for it's defined program and limited set of poses, as opposed to others that have a smorgasbord of poses that I could dabble in. As other reviewers have pointed out, some of the poses are not easy, and there are many that I still probably only get 25% right because I don't have the strength and flexibility, but the honest effort I make is paying off.

I found myself getting more and more out of shape because nagging injuries stopped me every time I tried to start an exercise program. My formerly active lifestyle was slowing way down, and I just felt bad -- and felt bad about myself as a result. Bikram's yoga has turned that around in 2 short months. I've lost some weight, gained a tremendous amount of flexibility, added muscle tone, and feel a lot better about my long term health outlook.

I do the full program (it takes me about an hour and 15 minutes) at least 4 times a week, usually 5 or 6. I'll probably take a class with an instructor eventually.

Is Bikram's yoga the best way? I don't know. But it's working for me.

4-0 out of 5 stars A decent understanding of Bikram's
If you are a fan of Bikram's yoga, this is a great companion to the practice. If, however, you are new to yoga, or have never taken a Bikram class, the sequence of the postures may be hard to follow. For those new to yoga, the Bikram method may prove to be strenuous and frustrating, especially with the room being heated to 100 degrees. My recommendation would be to take a few beginning yoga classes to develop sound knowledge of basic poses before engaging in this method. If you have a yoga practice but are new to Bikram, it may be difficult to remember the sequence of postures without jotting a few notes and bringing them with you as you practice. But all in all, it's a good resource.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Miraculously Helpful Set of Postures
I attended classes at Bikram's Yoga College of India for three years, and have received instruction from Bikram himself during quite a number of those classes. About two years ago the college moved to a different location and since then I have continued my practice at home.

Everything they say about Bikram the man is true. Yes, he is an egotist. Yes, with his millions of dollars and multiple Rolls Royces he has fully embraced the materialistic lifestyle of his adopted country and in particular of his home city of Beverly Hills. He is well aware of his egotism and materialism, and revels in both to the point of self-parody.

None of this erases the fact that the 26 Bikram postures are perhaps the most concise, therapeutic, balanced and adaptable compilation of the yoga repertoire ever brought together under a single method.

They are concise, in that every part of the body is exercised, but if the same part is exercised in more than one posture, it is always in a slightly different way, and always in a way that takes advantage of the repetition to further increase the flexibility of the body, and always far enough from the original posture to make the repetition meaningful rather than redundant (e.g., standing head to knee is posture five, while the seated head to knee is posture twenty-four). They are therapeutic, in that circulation is enhanced, muscles are stretched to release toxins, and intense heat and perspiration help to carry those toxins out of the body. They are balanced, in that each posture that stretches in one direction is invariably followed by another that stretches in the opposite direction (e.g., camel pose followed by rabbit pose). Finally, they are adaptable, in that every posture can be done to a greater or a lesser degree, allowing both beginners and long-time practitioners to benefit from exactly the same set of postures.

In so many ways, this makes the Bikram postures "all you really need" - a comprehensive set of postures beyond which you need look no further in order to maintain your flexibility and health.

Yes, just as some others have reported, I too made an effort to attend classes taught by "anybody but Bikram" while I was at the college. While he is very knowledgeable, his constant banter often interrupted the flow of the postures, and his classes invariably ran late as a result. But I will always be grateful to him for having developed his method, which has been of enormous assistance to me in maintaining my physical health and clarity of mind.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book!
This book is really helpful for beginners in Hatha Yoga. Frankly, I'm just happy that it was reprinted, as my copy of the original is incredibly dog-earred :-). I've seen complaints that the poses are two difficult. They really aren't that bad, the Camel Pose, for example, looks scary at first but after a week or two you can do it as well as the people in the book. People complain about Mr. Choudhury's style of speaking to his students, I think it depends on how you interpret it, a friend of mine says that in real life, he is a really nice man. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Beginners Book
I think this book is a great way to start yoga. It starts out very basic compared to some books which I have seen who call themselves basic(even easier than one of the books for seniors I have seen). One of the reasons I chose this book, is because the pictures, they are all clear and large and in color. I also enjoy the descriptions they give of how each pose will benefit you. ...they should include some more information about using props, since the do also mention that you should have props to start. However the book is not hurt buy that so much, becuase they do offer easier options for people with certain troublespots, and most beginners do not have all the props(in my case). I think this book will last me a long time because of the fact that it not only has a beginner section but also an intermediate to challenge me. I have really enjoyed learning yoga from this book, and I believe that it has really helped me to do the poses correctly with out any outside help. I really believe that this is one of the best yoga books out there, especially because everyone can benefit from these wonderful pictures, that show you step by step how to get into a pose(they also give you a written discription). I really encourage people who are just starting yoga to buy this book, because it has really enthused me about yoga and helped me in every aspect of my life.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Useful Book For Beginners
If you have no prior experience and want to jump right into a routine, this is the book for you. In fact, it serves that purpose better than any other yoga book I've seen so far. It's design is simple yet clever, and allows the user to study the instructions and accompanying photos of the various poses while simultaneously attempting them. The descriptions and illustrations are understandable and well-organized.

This is strictly a beginner's book, and that point is clearly stated in the title, but for that reason it is fairly limited in scope. The authors cover several important poses in great detail, but you may want to explore further and cross-reference with other books. Another that I'd recommend highly is called Hatha Yoga Illustrated, which I've also reviewed.

Overall, Yoga For Beginners is a great starting place for those looking to dive in head first. It will give you a good sense of the time needed to learn and perform a full routine. You'll be attempting your first poses literally within minutes of cracking the book open!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Book for Anyone
I love this book! I am just now getting into yoga after hearing for many years about its benefits.This book is very easy to follow and straight forward.It has tons of pictures that one can easliy see and understand. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is just beggining(like me) or who wants to reinforce the basics of yoga.

5-0 out of 5 stars THE best book for Yoga!
I've read at least a dozen books on Yoga and this one is the best. It's very informative but is also perfect for having by you when you practice your Yoga since it is in illustration form. It also has advanced moves for when you progress. I use Yoga to compliment my long-distance running and weight lifting. I broke my back (L5-S1) about 5 years ago and needed surgery. I vowed to never let myself suffer again. With a combination of weight lifting and Yoga, I think you can almost guarantee success. You will not feel intimidated using this book. The moves are adequately explained and most importantly details what areas of the body are stretched/enhanced with each move.

4-0 out of 5 stars A nice book to start with
I really like this book. It has clear instructions about how to get into a pose, and some good, basic information about yoga. The spiral binding allows the book to be propped up like an easel. This makes using in during practice much easier because you can see the pose and read how to do it. There are even variations of poses for someone with back problems, or who is not as flexible. There are some intermediate poses in the book as well to challenge the newbie. One real problem, there are very few poses in the book, and no information on the use of props in yoga. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for begginers!
If you've never tried yoga before and feel intimidated by the more advanced moves of other types of yoga this is a great book for you. I took the class back in college and still use it now that I am in the military. All I have to say is wow! After coming back from training and trying the sets again I realized how great it really was.
He also includes a section for runners and skiers in this book that athletes might find helpful.
If your ever attending UAA make sure to try and attend the class!

Non

5-0 out of 5 stars Authentic Text on healing, brings together many trads.
Pranic healing is truly a rare book, it's exercises work and the theory is superb. I bought it after having had years of experience doing a somewhat similar practice that I had discovered myself, it was based only on my experiences and was necessarily fragmentary, if effective. Pranic healing filled in the holes and has given me a solid manual describing some of the unseen workings of the world, a rarity. Also good is it's recognition of certain western traditions like Theosopy and AMORC as containing good information about the spirit world, even if, in my opinion, the central doctrines are very shaky. A great book, buy it, use it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Self-empowering 21st century healing and survival technology
This book is an extremely well-written and detailed source of how-to and descriptives on Pranic Healing, the non-touch enery healing modality! I was introduced to the book by a healer who felt that this book would allow me to learn energy healing quickly and easily. It certainly was the case! I was able to heal myself of numerous problems, in particular, one very bad sprain in one day instead of the usual two to three weeks of Ace bandages and ice-packs! Being an avid sportsman I understood the "miracle" which occurred by my simply following the simple instructions in the book. I now practice it regularly with similar wonderful results! I heartily recommend the book to anyone who wants to heal themselves and also to learn about how energy works and flows in and around each of us.

--Navin Sharma

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to Pranic healing
This book gives an excellent introduction to Pranic healing. Author gives good background information on the concepts of Prana and chakras. Next couple of chapters talk about the various Pranic healing techniques and how to heal some diseases. The chapter on "Meditation of twin hearts" gives very good information on the technique. I prefer to use a companion audio tape to practice the meditation. This books is an excellent introductory and reference book on Pranic healing techniques. For more advanced information, read "Advanced Pranic healing" and "Pranic Psychotherapy" by the same author. They give more detailed infomation on healing illnesses. I highly recommend the Meditation of twin hearts to achieve relaxation and good health. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A lifesaver for people with back and neck pain!
Suza Francina, author, The New Yoga for People Over 50, Mayor Pro-Tem from Ojai, California, writes:

"I have been teaching yoga to people of all ages for over 25 years. One of the most common reasons people begin a yoga class is to get rid of their aches and pains. I can say with complete confidence that of all the books I've read on therapeutic exercise for back and neck pain relief, Dr. Schatz book offers by far the most effective, individualized approach to a healthy back.

Back Care Basics goes beyond generic exercises and takes into account each person's special circumstances. It is a lifesaver for people caught in the viscious cycle of pain and fear. I have referred to it countless times creating yoga based exercise programs for people in chronic pain. In fact, almost my entire copy is highlighted or underlined!

If you or someone you love is suffering from back or neck pain, I encourage you to educate yourself by reading this book. I also hope that other health professionals working with people with back problems--chiropractors, massage and physical therapists, acupuncturists,etc., will read this book and leave it in their waiting room. Chiropractors tell me that patients who are practicing yoga rarely have acute back pain and their adjustments hold longer. People with back and neck problems benefit more from other therapies if they practice the gentle yoga program taught in Back Care Basics.

5-0 out of 5 stars Immediate Results
I had heard lots of wonderful things about this book for the last few years. Then I bought a copy. The results have been nothing short of amazing. Dr. Schatz has compiled a book which is a must for anyone with back pain or neck pain.

Her diagnostic tests allow you to immediately identify your problem areas. The recommended exercises are clearly illustrated. You get exercises that are custom-made for your body.

Of course, the magic happens when you actually do the exercises. I saw remarkable results in my posture the very first day I started doing the exercises. The neck and shoulder tightness has also improved.

Dr. Schatz is an expert in this area, and this is not designed as "quick fix." This is a sound program to be followed over time. However, I must admit I was astounded at the speed at which I saw improvement.

If you have any back or neck pain, or poor posture, you absolutely must get this book. It will improve your health dramatically. Thank you, Dr. Schatz for this magnificent book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Heal thyself !
My sciatic pain had been relieved to some degree by a chiropractor and my general practioner handed me one page of exercises and did not seem to want to deal with my back pain; "Lose weight and walk...have a nice day" It was then that I researched this book and purchased it.

This book is wonderful and has allowed me to assess what exercises I need to do and how to move, lift, and sit to avoid problems. I have read at least 20 books on back care and this is the ONE!! It is not for those who want a "quick read" as you must read several sections in order and then assess your personal condition. However, the results for me have been truly amazing in about 3 weeks time.

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent material
This book contains yoga based routines that helped my lower back pain a great deal. The author brings her medical background and her yoga background together to produce a wonderful resourse for the lower back pain sufferer. If you're like most lower back pain sufferers, you'll find that in order to get control of your pain, you need to do more than visit a physical therapist or chiropractor; you need to find a system of therapy that addresses your specific problems. This book is a good place to start.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great guide to back health and treatment
This is an excellent guide to understanding and treating (and preventing) a variety of common back and neck ailments. Three things make this book great: 1. Its accessibility - the explanations are simple and clear, and the exercises/positions can be performed by almost anyone, regardless of ability/flexibility. 2. It's realistic: It doesn't go overboard and intimidate or discourage with too many exercises. 3. The author knows what she's talking about.

One word of caution: This book is not (nor does it pretend to be) a substitute for getting a proper diagnosis and, if needed, seeing a physical therapist for advice.

Highly recommended. ... Read more

Book Description

Stardom, thanks to Woody Allen and his film Manhattan, came at an early age...but so did the problems of a broken and dysfunctional family. Yet in a life so out of kilter, Mariel Hemingway summoned the strength and inner resolve that enabled her to find -- and to keep -- her balance.

In Finding My Balance, actress Mariel Hemingway uses the lessons and practices of yoga as a starting point for her own personal reflections and larger-than-life family story. The result is a searingly honest memoir that is as deeply moving as it is helpfully prescriptive.

Mariel turned to yoga and its meditative practice in an effort to maintain her center when her life threatened to spin out of control. Having experienced family tragedy, sudden stardom, and the continuing challenges of a full and demanding life, Mariel learned through practice how to find her balance in emotionally disorienting situations. Throughout the book, Mariel uses her yoga training as a starting point for each chapter, carefully describing aparticular position, then letting her mind wander into thoughts of the past and of her tumultuous life.

As each chapter begins with instruction, so does the book end with exercises organized in a sequence that can be followed by anyone who wants to practice them. As a special bonus for this edition, Mariel has added a section that describes the basics of her own "In Balance Philosophy," calming words of advice for people in search oftheir own emotional center. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars An inspiring & candid memoir of a fine yogini.
Mariel Hemingway has done much good with her
yoga work and writing.
I love this type of candid writing from such a
clear and peaceful soul.
It may not be a profound or complex work.
But memoirs are not meant to be. She is
sharing intimate experiences of her own
and her families lives.
This is profound enough.

She does know how to share her true life
adventures with us with feeling,
ideas that are a light on our own paths of life.
She keeps on track and there is no fluff in this book.

Also recommended; Autobiography of a Yogi,
by Paramahansa Yogananda.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hemingway shares both her passion and her soul
Being a fan of Ms. Hemingway's film work for several years I was pleased to learn that she had written her memoir. Ms. Hemingway's story of survival and discovery was both a thought provoking and moving read. She openly shares the blessing and the curse of her famous family ties and the lessons gained by years of living in emotional upheaval. The yoga metaphor used throughout the book works well and ties each chapter neatly together. All in all an inspiring autobiography by a very talented and strong woman.

4-0 out of 5 stars Interesting even if you're not into yoga
Like the reader from Raynham, MA, I am not the slightest bit interested in yoga and skipped over those parts. But the other sections were worth reading -- especially the parts about her eating disorder! Before she got the implants, I always admired and envied Mariel's figure, especially the way she looked in Personal Best, and had assumed that she was just naturally athletic. I suppose I shouldn't have been shocked to learn that, like so many celebrities, she had to starve and endanger her health to look like that. And the stuff about her mixed-up family was very interesting, too -- though sad. I also enjoyed the stuff about Woody Allen.

5-0 out of 5 stars Well worth reading
Heartwarming insight into the experiences of one cool lady. I admit to following Mariel's (and Margaux') career since before "Lipstick" and I read the book in one session. Very touching, and Mariel really lays a lot of personal pain and joy bare for us to see. A great book for anyone juggling family problems, a difficult adolescence, food demons, and facing adversity. I sure hope the future is kind to Mariel and her family.

5-0 out of 5 stars Mariel opens her heart
In this touching, informative, truthful story about Mariel's own life is a compelling story I couldn't put down. For any fans of hers, you are going to love this book and won't be ab le to put it down. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book for Beginners
As a beginner in Yoga, with little time for a regular weekly session, I bought two books for beginners. Dynamic Yoga and also Power Yoga for Beginners. Both books are excellent but if I was only buying one I would choose Dynamic Yoga. The main reason being that it is better at describing the flow of movements from one pose to another. It also is better at describing the breathing sequences when doing the Sun Salutations. The only quibile is that it would be of great advantage if it was spiral bound.

5-0 out of 5 stars Learn Step-by-Step, You'll Use it Each Day
This is a really good book to refer to each day as you go about learning Ashtanga/power yoga. It's just page after page of very detailed photography of each pose, and most importantly "transitional moves"!! I finally learned the key to jumping back safely in and out of the vinyasa/flow sequence. For someone mid-30s, average health, average flexibility, this book makes a daunting type of yoga practice much more attainable.

There is little here about yoga philosophy, but what is there is straightforward. Good help with pronunciation and learning the Sanskrit versions of the asana names.

Good book overall. I now use it every day.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is the best book on yoga I have ever seen.
I would highly recommend this great book for any level of yoga study.
This is the best book on the subject I have ever seen.

but a guide that easily shows the proper breathing techiques.

Book Description

Dancing the Body of Light is the title of the book that Dona has brought out with her student and fellow yoga teacher, Orit Sen-Gupta.Together they have explored the past and present stages of yoga and offer in this ambitious manuscript a way that the art of yoga can continue to develop in the future.Perfect pose, empty mind, and wide heart are at the basis of this development, in which all the aspects of the human being are brought together into one organic whole.This was undoubtedly the aim of the ancient yogi's, but as happens to all traditions, at a certain moment in history the descriptions take the place of reality, the vehicle to arrive at life becomes more important than life itself.The book "Dancing the Body of Light: the Future of Yoga", aims at refreshing old concepts and giving them a new, modern look.Using modern terminology and modern sciences, the old yogic concepts of the annamaya kosha (the physical body) and the pranamaya kosha (the energy body) are rediscovered as the twin vehicle in which the human being travels through life.The application of NOT-DOING or WU-WEI to the physical body brings again the pranamaya kosha or energy body into focus.At the same time the application of NOT-DOING to the mind and heart bring back that peacefulness and innocence that can reflect without distortion the here and now.It is out of that reflection that we can act with clarity and efficiency.The book is brought out in a beautiful hard back cover, and a deluxe paperback which contain, apart from the philosophical part, a large section with a detailed description of all the asanas, bandhas, pranayama techniques and savasana techniques.With more than three hundred photographs it gives, in addition to the description, a visual idea of the ease and fluidity with which the postures can be performed if they are done from the point of view of the energy body through the application of WU-WEI or NOT-DOING.This book is a must for all serious yoga practitioners and teachers. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful yoga, insightful commentary on asanas
Ms.Holleman has written a wonderful, comprehensive book for yoga practitioners everywhere. She goes into great detail. The words she uses are inspired, and derive from her deep and long practice. She also demonstrates beautiful postures which illustrate what advanced practitioners do.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very inspiring
Dancing the Body of Light has been an inspiration for my personal yoga practice in the last two years. The photos of the asanas are beautiful and the instructions are very clear. Dona Holleman is able to convey how we can go beyond our physical body and find the light and joy which comes from tapping into the energy body. This book is an inspiration for all practitioners of yoga.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dancing the Body of Light
Dancing the Body of Light was the number one best seller at the fifth annual Yoga Journal Convention held at Estes Park, Colorado October 2000. This book is being received as a thorough, in depth yet easy to read manual on Yoga. Dona Holleman being present at this meeting is considered the teacher of many of the teachers who taught at the Convention. In her 40 years of Yoga experience she developed her own very unique way of practicing/ teaching Yoga. She is a master in her field. Dancing the Body of Light contains her wonderful insights and experience. As one of her students being present at the Convention I would say 'buy this unique book'and be inspired by it like myself and dance the Dance of the Body of Light in YOUR practice!

5-0 out of 5 stars A textbook for life
This is a book which takes the mystery out of yoga. It is a textbook for life, lived fully in the physical body. The asana instructions are elegantly simple, based on a clear understanding of anatomy. However, the unique gift of this book is the author's ability to distill her comprehensive knowledge of this ancient tradition into a compelling mind-body experience which embraces all spiritual traditions. Her seven principles are the yogic exercise for being in the present moment, and when practiced are a gift for a life of freedom.

5-0 out of 5 stars Moving meditation
By following the instructions on asanas from this book I found that I was moving awareness according to the directions and that I was developing an incredible amount of awareness inside my body. It was this sensitivity of inner awareness that brought my practice to an internal meditation, not a periforal movement of forcing the body into an asana. The form of the asana develops from the inside not the periphery. It is a wonderfully liberating feeling which I certainly found therapeutic. I feel sure that many practitioners of Yoga have experienced this same wonderful awareness which accounts for the wide apppeal of this book. ... Read more
