Integrating the teachings of every tradition, internationally renowned yoga instructor Donna Farhi reveals how yoga enhances the connections between the mind, body, and spirit. She outlines the seven simple movement principles that underlie all human motion and provides exercises to help readers understand how they can achieve all yoga postures. She also discusses the ten ethical precepts that are the foundation of all yoga teachings and explains how to incorporate them into a spiritually and emotionally rewarding inner practice. At the heart of "Yoga Mind, Body & Spirit" are more than seventy-five yoga asanas or postures. Each is one pictured and described in detail, and they are arranged into related groups--including standing postures, sitting postures, arm balances, and breathing practices--or easy reference. A selection of yoga practices of varying lengths and levels of difficulty provides challenges and inspiration for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students. A huge resurgence of interest in yoga is sweeping the country. With its broad scope and holistic approach, "Yoga Mind, Body & Spirit" is the ideal book for today's mainstream audience.

As a yoga teacher, I found this book to be a superb resource to dip into. Donna really knows her stuff and takes great care to explain the postures in great detail - not just on the physical level but also on more subtle levels. A beginner might well be put off by the wordiness of this book but for someone with a sincere interest in yoga and getting the most out of the postures, I would highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best in class 30 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
There are many books on yoga, particularly grounded in the Iyengar tradition. Donna Farhi's book manages to combine an earthy practical approach, with the subtlety of where postures touch the spiritual boundary. While many teachers try writing books on yoga but somehow miss the mark, this book for me reads like a perfected pose looks.

5.0 out of 5 stars a major work for anyone interested in yoga 11 Oct 2000
By M. Parr
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has very detailed info on alignment, by a teacher coming from an Iyengar background, but is most definitely not just a posture book. It discusses the 'inner world' of yoga, and its life-enhacing possiblities. Whether you come from an iyengar background or not, you will find much to inspire you. Essential!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is all you need 19 Jan 2007
Format:Paperback
I've been renewing the copy of this book that I borrowed from the library for months now, and am about to buy a copy from Amazon. If you want to try to learn Yoga from a book, then this is definitely the one to buy (I've compared it with at least 10 other Yoga books). Donna's explanation of how to do the postures is second to none. Also, her emphasis on being gentle with yourself will ensure that you don't injure yourself, or end up aching so much that you can't move for a week. By following her advice, you will start to feel the benefits after your first session. The book covers all aspects of Yoga, including spiritual and ethical. I've used Yoga videos as well as other books, and this is far and away the best instruction out there.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Received my book quickly. Haven't read the whole thing yet but it's perfect for a yogini wanting deeper knowledge about yoga. I'm currently studying to be a yoga teacher myself and the information in this book is a very valuable tool.
