Book Description

19 Oct 1998

Dynamic Yoga is a unique combination of dynamic breathing and strong, flowing movement which creates a high-heat, high-energy workout. The choreographed sequence of postures that flow into one another build strength, unwind tight joints, and loosen muscles.

It is a complete mind and body workout that develops concentration and reduces stress.

Dynamic Yoga, based on the techniques of Astanga Vinyasa Yoga, is the fast, powerful form of yoga which has taken the yoga world by storm. It has attracted a lot of interest due to the claims that it can provide as effective a cardiovascular workout as a conventional exercise-to-music class. Thus it is attracting people from the fitness and ‘body culture’ world who are seeking new ways to keeping super fit. It is fast becoming the new Iyengar in yoga fashion terms.

Product Description

From the Back Cover

'Dynamic Yoga' is an unbeatable form of exercise. Combining fitness training with stress release in a single dynamic workout, its scientifically devised sequence of postures will bring you to the peak of your physical and mental powers. The flowing sequences are carried out in conjunction with dynamic breathing, creating a deep heat in the body which enables you to build up strength, flexibility, stamina, concentration and alertness. You are then left in a state of vibrant relaxation.

'Dynamic Yoga' has something for everyone – not just those who are physically fit or spiritually inclined. It is an effective, simplified way to gain the far-reaching benefits of classical Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga not available in many contemporary yoga styles. Through the sweat-inducing heat of the dynamic workouts you will pass beyond the tensions of your body and the anxieties of your mind. However fit or flexible you are, your body will be totally charged and your mind fully chilled.

Each of the nine workouts is fully illustrated with a set of black and white photographs showing you how to move safely and effectively in, out and through the postures.

I have a lot of yoga books and am a regular practitioner, also teaching beginners. I found this book to have the best illustrations of the postures I've seen so far. Not only that, but the book also explains thoroughly and clearly all aspects of Hatha yoga practice. Although I can't 'do' all the positions in their full form (still too stiff!) I found this book invaluable in its explanation of the fundamentals and think it would be perfect for beginners or experienced people as it captures the essence of what the practice is all about. It's revolutionised my efforts and my understanding of what I'm doing and that in turn has had a hugely beneficial effect. Even though I'd studied with a lot of other excellent books this one was the one which finally made it drop into place. The author has a gift for clarity.
I can't recommend this highly enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Hatha Yoga -- No trendy nonsense 2 Feb 2001
By A Customer
I really recommend this book. It's not a supposedly new form of yoga -- and the author doesn't come across as just some really flexible ex-dancer/gymnast who takes great pictures touting the latest way to look cool while you whittle your waist...
This is an integrated introduction to classical Hatha Yoga -- a combination of practical lessons with just enough historical and spiritual explanation to make you realize that your individual practice can become part of something larger and greater than yourself, if you wish it to. I liked that.
As the author says, this is a useful and safe introduction to yoga practice that is more than just trendy "exotic stretching."

5.0 out of 5 stars It's got it ALL 7 Mar 1999
By A Customer
I just purchased this book along with Power Yoga by B. Birch ... As good as Birch's book is, THIS one is better! The pictures are a good size and VERY clear, and the book provides a wonderful set of series at the end to accommodate various levels of competence and also to address those moments when there just isn't quite enough time to get in a complete series. I'm sure you'll love it.
