Book Description

25 Oct 2007
Why should a modern yoga student bother with the mythological stories and figures of some distant culture? Traditionally, yoga is understood as including practices that lead to self-understanding on the physical, spiritual and psychological levels. The rich oral tradition of stories surrounding yoga hold deep significance when taken as a guide to working with universal human emotions. This book pairs culturally significant stories with yoga postures to show how you can achieve wellbeing through greater self-awareness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Book review 31 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent service and would use the supplier again. The title of the book is very apt for the contents and, although I have only scanned through it at present, I'm looking forward to reading it and hopefully using it as an additional tool when compiling Yoga lesson plans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs up for Downward Dog and Warriors 27 Oct 2007
By Felicity Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Lovely illustrations and pictures in this book. This is not a "manual" or a "how to do yoga' book, though there are instructions and modifications for each pose covered. It covers much more--sustaining the pose as well as embodying the pose, points for practice and charming stories of Hindu mythology and relevance of spirituality in the practice. Brings meaning to the personal practice for those who may have an interest in more than just the postures.

5.0 out of 5 stars dogs do it so do yogis 2 Jan 2008
By JK - Published on Amazon.com
Want to learn the origins of the yoga poses you do. "Downward Dogs and Warriors..."provides interesting insight not only into the origin of the poses but also into the culture and language of the origins. Additionally the description of alignment is wonderful and more complete than some instructors' suggestions. Results will be healthful not harmful. Enjoyable, well written and illustrated, and above all HELPFUL. JK

5.0 out of 5 stars Original and simply DIVINE! 8 May 2008
By Gauri-Pahari Das - Published on Amazon.com
My best friend just sent me a copy of this. Shes a yoga teacher, Im a Student Indian Philosopher, and arts lover. I do asana too. This book goes hand in hand with both. I am not going to go on and on, it is a very unique and original book, never would have thought to get it. Gorgeous paintings, and lovely explainations of how the pose originated, and variations and tips. Just LOVELY! Thanks Padma! I recommend to anyone who is a yoga asana student or teacher, Indian art or philosophy lover. 10 stars! NAMASTE! 3~

5.0 out of 5 stars This is such a beautiful book. 6 Nov 2008
By Edina Leiher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It is beautifully written, with colorful illustrations. It really makes you want to think deeper about what you do on your yoga mat. I wish there would be another volume with more poses in it. I would recommend this book for everyone who is interested in yoga.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book 18 May 2008
By S. Mathews - Published on Amazon.com
This a book for people with feelings who want to do more then simply stretch; the Introduction alone is incredibly touching. The book describes the mythologies behind the asanas as well as describing the poses in detail with beautiful color page inserts illustrating both the asana and the mythology.
