With his expert teachings, philosophical insights, and pragmatic imagery, world-class yoga instructor Tias Little turns the anatomy of the physical body into a tool for navigating the subtle body.If you spend considerable time doing yoga, you begin to see that it is about much more than just the body—the practice of yoga in fact reveals that the body is in no way separate from the pyschospiritual forces that animate it. Tias Little here provides a way to understand these forces as they relate to an integrated yoga of body, mind, and spirit. He unites somatic concepts and wisdom teachings in this practical guide to the anatomy of the physical, mental, emotional, and subtle (or energetic) body. Little is a master teacher who offers us a guided tour of the body’s structure and physical anatomy, then uses this new structural awareness as the basis for exploring the subtle body. In a meaningful and pragmatic way, the book maps the connection between the body and the rich symbolism that pervades the yogic imagination, including the chakras, nadis, and koshas. Further, Little offers readers clear, insightful yoga, pranayama, and meditation exercises that apply these body-mind principles.

If You Don't Have Kindle You Can Still Read This Book On Your Web Browser using Amazon Free Cloud Reader Yoga is a belief that a man’s mind, body and spirit should work in harmony with the environment and his own self. To achieve this, his emotions, actions and intelligence should all be in balance. Most people nowadays are more interested in yoga as a form of exercise. Many are practicing yoga because it is proven to help calm the mind, reduce stress, relieve pain, and lose weight (which most often translates to an increase in confidence). As a matter of fact, many doctors now accept its therapeutic benefits as they’ve seen it do wonders on their own patients. Some who are not familiar with yoga think that it is an exercise composed of poses that are also impossible to do. This is why some people become rather hesitant about practicing it, or even trying it. Though it may be true that some poses require impressive flexibility, there are many poses that can be done by beginners or those who are still inflexible.With this book, you will learn everything about how to begin practicing yoga. It will teach you some basic techniques on how to prepare your body, mind, and spirit. It will teach also teach you how to slowly achieve the flexibility needed for advanced poses – in a safe, gradual way (rushing things won’t be beneficial in this kind of self-improvement pursuit as doing so will only lead to injury). The book will also include basic sequences of poses, which you can use to create an exercise routine. You’ll also discover what you need to learn about the essentials of yoga. In other words, you’ll know exactly what you should prepare (such as mats and straps) before starting a healing exercise that can help you achieve a balanced and calm mind, spirit, and body. In addition, you will know the proper attire for doing yoga – the sort of clothes that you’ll be able to move in.If you’re worried that you’ll only get to read about beginner-level poses and routines, you will be glad to know that this book also serves as a preview on the more advanced side of yoga. After all, most beginners eventually yearn to try something more challenging. To achieve a proper balance between enthusiasm and safety, several tips are also provided for those aiming to become advanced yoga practitioners. As you might have heard, diet is also an important aspect of this mind-calming, stress-reducing, and confidence-boosting endeavor. That’s why this book also features an entire chapter dedicated to proper yoga nutrition. It won’t be strict diet though, as you will only be taught how to food items that could help you reach your goal. Of course, that also means you’ll become more familiar with those that won’t do you any good.Here Is A Sneak Preview Of What You'll Learn After Downloading The Yoga Diet For Beginners book
