Yoga your home practice companion,written by leading teachers from the world-renowned Sivananda Yoga Vedanta School, is a wonderful and invaluable guide with really great photographs to illustrate the postures and all their variations. Not only does it give you asanas for every level of practitioner but also their benefits, there are lovely anatomical drawings to help deepen your understanding and ideas to unlock the health secrets of Hatha yoga and help you find your inner peace. In fact through this book you can learn how to introduce yoga into your whole lifestyle. There is insight into proper breathing and meditation and ways you can gradually transfer to a yogic diet with yummy recipes. And most importantly it teaches us how to relax properly, an important need for us all living in modern times to maintain the health of our body and mind. This book really does become a real friend and has great easy to follow sequences for a 20 minute, 40 minute or a 60 minute practice, so you don't have to worry about forgetting what comes next when you are not in class. This book is a must, I love it!
Also do join me this weekend 13th and 14th of October for our retreat at Pharping, Nepal. The retreat is held at Neydo Tibetan Monastery, a beautiful place in itself with wonderful Buddhist artwork. You will have two yoga classes on both days, talks with the Khenpo of the monastery (a Tibetan Buddhist Monk.) Talks on the artwork of the monastery, its symbolism and meaning, and walks to nearby meditation caves.
