FROM SWEAT TO "SAMADHI: " The Path of ASTANGA YOGA
"Beyond Power Yoga" presents and explores the "complete" journey of the classical "astanga yoga" system, from power yoga to meditation and liberation. Bender Birch's first book, the groundbreaking "Power Yoga, " introduced one level of "astanga yoga" to mainstream America -- a high-heat, high-energy mind/body workout. Now, "Beyond Power Yoga" presents all eight levels, or limbs, of this ancient method -- a total practice for body and soul.
Drawing a parallel between "astanga yoga'"s eight limbs and the mind/body energy centers "(chakras)" of Eastern philosophy, Bender Birch shows us how we can balance and heal our body, focus and relax our mind, amplify and direct our energy "(prana), " and ultimately reclaim our spiritual connection to Universal Consciousness. Each chapter offers specific practices to help the reader uncover and experience the insights of the "astanga yoga" journey.
