Evidence Informed Yoga Book WebBook is the most up-to-date, functional book on yoga, anatomy, and motion medicine available, written by doctors, therapists, and yoga instructors — accessible from your computer or mobile device 24/7! The Yoga Book is an invaluable instrument for all stages of your journey, allowing you to develop excellence on a personal level and as an instructor.
This book has been sculpted around the main principles of yoga. We build up each yoga pose and practice to follow the core principles — foundation, alignment, and expression:
- Foundation – connecting with strength, awareness and intelligence to the ground and knowledge
- Alignment – stacking the joints, using loops, spirals and curves of the body to help find a point of balance (physical, mental, and emotional)
- Expression – “bring in the poetry” in each pose through the micro-adjustments you can make to find greater comfort, connection and joy within the shape and transitions into and out of each position
Chapters have learning objectives and are marked with soft tabs. Each chapter ends with a ‘celebration of learning’ self quiz to test your knowledge. The symbol signifies a section containing humour; laughter is optional but recommended!
Dive Deep into the Foundations of Yoga
In the Yoga Book, we start with the foundations of yoga—from its historical and philosophical roots to anatomical foundations and applications of yoga and movement in general—to the alignment section that offers you a closer look at individual poses. The expression portion comes from the integration into sequencing at the back of the book, as well as on-going encouragement for you to reflect on the information, question it, and dive deeper.
