    One of the best books on hatha yoga ever. There is nothing difficult to understand or apply. But the material will probably change the way you practice. It certainly did not for me. I practice yoga on and off for ten years. I took classes with great teachers and even agonizing series of six seminars h with K. Pattabhi Jois. Yoga has never passed the physical for me until I read the book of Schiffman. Sometimes I wonder what is the real difference was between a good hatha yogi and a contortionist. This question has been answered. Schiffman teaches the inner workings of yoga. Its focus is on mobilizing the intrinsic energy of the body – qi or prana – in each posture. Postures act as models of energy, he explains, but it is necessary to understand the flux lines and circulation. It makes it very easy to understand and apply. And when you do, the technique improves and you become external states without thinking every annoying detail. In addition, the approach Schiffman is beautiful. It teaches you to feel your limits and learn when you want to stay healthy in their midst, and when you want to push them. It is a gentle method of “pain healthy occasional big gain.” Schiffman is schooled in Iyengar and Desikachar approaches. Precision is important to him. But he took a quantum step further. With light Iyengar Yoga and Donna Farhi Yoga Mind, Body & Spirit, the book ends Schiffman a trinity of three most impressive, useful books on hatha yoga that I’ve seen, whatever style you practice or your skill level.

    This book is great for a number of reasons. detailed descriptions on how to do the postures are wonderful. ago clues excellent progress through difficult postures, including useful exercises to help you get your hip joints to form in lotus pose. Erich really understands how different poses affect the physical body and the energy field, and this knowledge gives a clear and eloquent.
    It is an entire section on breathing with postures that I have not seen him do well in any other book. Moreover, he explains his concept of “energy lines” that really bring life postures. A power line is a directional path of force moving through your body during installation. example, when you make the Mountain (stand base) installation, you allow two lines of energy to develop: one that starts at the navel and down through your legs and feet, you anchored in the earth, the other lifted you from the navel upwards through the crown of your head. Understanding these lines allows the practitioner experience of each pose as a means to redirect its energy, rather than simply a series of stretching muscles.
    Perhaps the greatest contribution to the literature of Erich yoga is his way of explaining how asana practice is consistent with the practice of meditation. Previously, I was never sure how asanas fit with the rest of the practice of yoga. now I understand much better. I found the spiritual writings of Erich sober and inspiration. meditation exercises are great for both beginners as well as those who visited meditate for a while.
    This is a wonderful book by a professor who knows about it and seems to have a real heart opening. I want to take a class with him one day.

    If you buy only one book of yoga is one. By a mile. Practically saturated with common sense advice, especially from the point of view mental, here finally a book that can take you a long way in the privacy of your own home. Particularly useful is wonderfully detailed information on the installation. Information that may at first seem like overkill, but it is not. Instead what you have is a complete system to move slowly, naturally and correctly. I like the author’s comments on “the feeling that your edges” and “energy lines” that really opened my eyes immediately. Stunning photos. And a remarkable description of breathing ujjayi – a difficult concept to describe, but nicely done here. A brilliant book that took 10 years to write. Good things take time, of course. My only advice is when it comes to meditation, take a look at Lorin Roche, ” Meditation Made Easy. “Maurine and Roche Or is” Secrets of Meditation for women. “With these three books in your possession, you will be cooking.

    Get this book if you suffer from arthritis, would like to try a little exercise for him, and like yoga. Well, even if you do not like yoga, there are many good reasons to try it-it is as safe and easy, and you can do it in the privacy of your own home. few of the things I liked best … it
    book on yoga for people with “arthritis”-if you have rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, or even a form of arthritis called ankylosing spondylitis. This is what makes this book so good that it works for all types.
    -The book is written in simple terms. The book does go into some technical explanations on what arthritis is and explains the functioning of joints at the beginning of each chapter, but do not worry, everything is very understandable
    , the book is about an inch thick, which is mainly due to its many pictures of all the exercises, which is a big plus for visual learners like me
    -chapters are arranged by body part, for example, the shoulder, wrist and hand, etc., so no area is left arthritic. Chapter 5 is an “All-Stars” chapter contains a generalized program if you do not want to focus on a specific area (s).
    All-in-all it’s just a well-rounded, comprehensive book is really well written and illustrated. If you have arthritis I can tell you that you will feel much better when you get the joints working better, and this book can certainly help you do that. arthritic Other useful books I liked include Treat Your landlord knee arthritis .

    I am 64 years old and loves yoga, but I have some chronic health problems, knee arthritis, trochanteric bursitis flare-ups, and spinal stenosis. I tried trial and error to understand what yoga postures helped and what did not, but it’s really useful to have a reference book that tells you what you can do and what not do. This book does that.
    I’ve been waiting for a book like this for a long time, and when he was available he turned to for help. The blessing is that you can quickly turn a body part that you must treat such as knees or lumbar spine, and know what to do, and each time you return, you can deepen your understanding, this book is rich.
    photos and explanations are clear. It’s really cheap price. A big thank you to the authors.

    I bought countless “huge” books yoga gave these little nuggets little special that rock my world yoga. This book is full of amazing small variations on traditional poses and some new poses altogether.
    Even if you / your students do not have health problems, poses and instructions given in this book bring new life to the old, worn boring poses (variation bread conscience!).
    Not only this book is full of useful instructions about health and safety tips, but the info is presented in simple, succinct way that you do not have to weed through a lot text that may or may not apply. No space is wasted.
    No, I swear I’m not related to the author! I’m just happy to have a brief thoughtful and extremely helpful book for therapists to yoga.
    My only negative is the title … this book is so not only for arthritis! This is for all different health issues … and no health problems.
