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.

Format: Paperback
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.

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."

Format: Paperback
I bought this book ages ago (well over a year) and it's still in use almost every day - a good 4/5 times a week. As other reviewers have mentioned, it's great for beginners and I had no previous experience, myself, of yoga. The instructions and photos make this book very easy to follow and the chapters at the beginning of the book help get the most out of practicing the postures. I also purchased a video by the author, which is also excellent. I also bought another 2 yoga books, 1 by Iyengar (?) and another by David Swenson - they've hardly been opened. This book's the best.

Format: Paperback
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.
