About the book

In 30 Essential Yoga Poses, Judith Lasater draws on her wealth of yoga practice and teaching experience, as well as her training as a physical therapist, to present this comprehensive guide for beginning students and their teachers. In Part One, "Beginning with an Ancient Tradition," she discusses yoga's ancient eightfold path and its relevance in today's world. In Part Two, "Being a Student, Being a Teacher," she goes to the heart of yoga, that is, the all-important student-teacher relationship. Students will find this part helpful in selecting an appropriate teacher. Her discussion about creating clear boundaries is invaluable support for teachers who wish to establish, as she advocates, "a restorative environment" for their students. She describes thirty essential yoga poses (asana), their variations, and breathing practices (pranayama) in Part Three, "The Poses." She offers guidance for the student practicing at home, and points for the teacher to take into his or her classroom. In Part Four, "The Practice," she puts the poses together in four ways: a sequence for busy days a sequence for each day of the week themed sequences for · lower back pain · hip and hamstring flexibility · shoulder and upper back flexibility · balance · strength · energy · fatigue · relaxation a sequence using the thirty essential yoga poses Each sequence is presented as a photographic chart for easy visual reference, and includes a "Mantra for Daily Practice." Part Five, "And More," includes a glossary of anatomical terms and resources for further study.
