Banyen's Description: 

For more than 30 years, Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health has been on the growing edge of contemporary yoga in North America. Now, for the first time, in this comprehensive book Kripalu’s senior teachers bring their unique approach home to anyone, at any stage of practice.

Kripalu Yoga: A Guide to Practice On and Off the Mat, written with clarity and intelligence by Richard (Shobhan) Faulds, is the complete resource on Kripalu Yoga. Its 400 pages speak to yoga’s depth and breadth, providing user-friendly instructions for posture practice suitable for beginners as well as a wealth of guidance and exercises for yoga enthusiasts wanting to deepen their practice. The book also features in-depth consideration of the off-the-mat approaches to emotional, psychological, and spiritual health that make Kripalu Yoga so unique.

Quite a bit more than an “exercise program,” Kripalu Yoga also teaches the awareness and energy techniques that make yoga a catalyst for physical healing, self-discovery, and spiritual awakening. In short, clear chapters, the book progresses from simple breathing practices to deep concentration and relaxation, culminating in the remarkable experience of “meditation-in-motion” that is a hallmark of Kripalu yoga.

Learning happens best when we can relax and accept ourselves, whatever our level of flexibility, whatever our state of mind. Then we are ready to explore… All of us share a deep longing to realize our potential for full aliveness. May this book be a helpful step on your journey.

The 23 chapters are brought alive by a multitude of stories and quotes from Kripalu Yoga practitioners and senior teachers, more than 375 photos and illustrations, and the yoga poetry of Danna Faulds.
