The first yoga text to outline a step-by-step sequence for developing a complete practice according to viniyoga--yoga adapted to the needs of the individual.
- A contemporary classic by a world-renowned teacher.
- This new edition adds thirty-two poems by Krishnamacharya that capture the essence of his teachings.
Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, who lived to be over 100 years old, was one of the greatest yogis of the modern era. Elements of Krishnamacharya's teaching have become well known around the world through the work of B. K. S. Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois, and Indra Devi, who all studied with Krishnamacharya. Krishnamacharya's son T. K. V. Desikachar lived and studied with his father all his life and now teaches the full spectrum of Krishnamacharya's yoga. Desikachar has based his method on Krishnamacharya's fundamental concept of "viniyoga," which maintains that practices must be continually adapted to the individual's changing needs to achieve the maximum therapeutic value.
In "The Heart of Yoga" Desikachar offers a distillation of his father's system as well as his own practical approach, which he describes as "a program for the spine at every level--physical, mental, and spiritual." This is the first yoga text to outline a step-by-step sequence for developing a complete practice according to the age-old principles of yoga. Desikachar discusses all the elements of yoga--poses and counterposes, conscious breathing, meditation, and philosophy--and shows how the yoga student may develop a practice tailored to his or her current state of health, age, occupation, and lifestyle.
This is a revised edition of "The Heart of Yoga."

YOGA / EXERCISE"Biff Mithoefer has created the most useful written material available for exploring Yin Yoga. Much more than an asana book, The Yin Yoga Kit teaches energetic principles, mental disciplines, and patient mindfulness. I highly recommend it!" --PAUL GRILLEY, author of Yin Yoga: Outline of A Quiet Practice "Yoga and qigong are much more alike than they are different, causing many practitioners to say, 'Chinese yoga is Indian qigong.' The Yin Yoga Kit serves as a bridge between the two disciplines. It is like a mountain trail between China and India, probably through Tibet." --ROGER JAHNKE, O.M.D., director of the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi, author of The Healer Within and The Healing Promise of Qi Yin Yoga is known as the quiet yoga. Many of the most popular forms of yoga are fundamentally yang in nature, based on rhythmic movements of the muscles and focused on the need for change and attainment. Yin Yoga, in contrast, concentrates on connective tissue and bones, the parts of our body that are closest to our core and critical to our physical well-being and range of motion. The postures are all practiced on the floor and each is held for a lengthy period, usually three to five minutes. This intense non-movement allows the muscles to relax and the deep connective tissue to be gently stretched, encouraging the free flow of energy throughout the body. Above all, Yin Yoga is a gentle practice that brings yoga back to its internal meditative roots, teaching us to relax and accept ourselves just as we are. In The Yin Yoga Kit, Biff Mithoefer presents 14 postures used in Yin Yoga and explains the benefits of each, including which meridians and chakras will be mostpositively affected. The full-color posture cards included illustrate the poses for those who are very flexible--and those who are not--and assist users in designing a personalized practice. The 75-minute CD contains a guided routine narrated by the author, with each pose presented on a separate track so listeners can rearrange them or shorten the routine as needed. BIFF MITHOEFER teaches Yin Yoga at Omega Institute, Nosara Institute in Costa Rica, and throughout the United States. He lives in Dorset, Vermont.

The guidance in this book teaches Course #1. Before anabolic steroids started to infest the body-building world, variations of Course #1 were famous, popular, and responsible for building tons of muscle. But in the 1960s, when the use of steroids became popular among competitive body-builders, the popularity of Course #1 began to wane. Since then, the routines most commonly promoted in the body-building world have been those used by physique stars who were genetically gifted for body-building and on steroids. But those routines do not work well, if at all, for most other body-builders. The guidance in this book is founded on the amazing progress that Peary Rader made -- around 50 pounds of natural muscle growth following 12 years of failure on other routines. Here are the three primary characteristics of Course #1: 1) It is very effective. Its track record for producing lots of muscle growth is illustrious (even for hard gainers); 2) It is up to date. The routine that Peary used has been modernised in this book. The version you can apply is even better than the original one. (There are better training tools today, and knowledge of nutrition and the other components of recuperation is much greater nowadays.); 3) It is personalised. You will be taught how to modify the routine so that it suits you perfectly. When applied properly, this may be the #1 muscle-building routine for drug-free, genetically typical body-builders. And because this legendary routine does not require long or overly frequent workouts, it is suitable even for busy people. But be ready for training concepts that are radically different to what you are used to. And set aside any doubts you may have. Simply apply Course #1 as it is explained in this book, and experience the muscle-building magic yourself. Then you will really be a believer. This book provides the most complete, up-to-date and useful guidance ever published on this fabulous body-building routine. It includes the background and history of the routine, the modernisation of it, the essential foundation phase, the special training schedules, how to train (including exercise technique in great detail), the components of recuperation (including nutrition), and two inspiring illustrations of how to put Course #1 into practice (from Peary Rader and Stuart McRobert). If other instruction has not produced the muscle mass you want, why stick with it? Instead, apply the routine that is explained in this book -- it is proven to build lots of muscle mass fast. Why a New BRAWN Series? The new series complements the best-selling books BRAWN and BEYOND BRAWN. Building on the philosophy, principles and methods promoted in those two classic works, the new series presents premier body-building routines that are immaculately detailed, rich in new material, thoroughly up-to-date, and proven to be super-effective. This first book of the new series teaches Course #1, which was mentioned only very briefly in BRAWN and BEYOND BRAWN, although not by that particular name.
