Ashtanga Yoga is a graceful, athletic type of yoga that has become extremely popular in recent years. Here, Kino MacGregor, a disciple of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, the great modern guru who developed Ashtanga Yoga, gives a comprehensive view of the practice and shows how Ashtanga is fundamentally a path of spiritual transformation and personal development. MacGregor delves into the history and tradition of Ashtanga Yoga and reveals how its philosophy manifests in contemporary lifestyle and dietary choices. She also explains the essential connection of breath, posture, and gaze that is the core of the practice. Her clear, step-by-step instruction of the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series—including standing, seated, backbending, twisting, hip-opening, and closing postures—is a wonderful initiation for those who are new to the practice, and it will motivate experienced yogis toward perfection of the form. Throughout, MacGregor shares her own personal yoga journey and her devotion to yoga as a path of self-realization in a way that will inspire all practitioners.

YOGA FOR EXERCISE. One of the great yoga figures of our time, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois brought Ashtanga yoga to the West more than thirty years ago. Based on flowing, energetic movement coordinated with the breath, Ashtanga and the many forms of vinyasa yoga that grow directly out of it have become the most widespread and influential styles practiced today. "Yoga Mala" - a 'garland of yoga' - is Jois' authoritative guide to Ashtanga. In it, he outlines the ethical principles and philosophy underlying the discipline, explains important terms and concepts, and guides the reader through Ashtanga's Sun Salutations and the subsequent primary sequence of forty-two asanas, or poses, precisely describing how to execute each position and what benefits each provides. It is a foundational work on yoga by a true master.

Sri T. Krishnamacharya has been called the Teachers teacher, well know students of his include BKS Iyengar, BNS Iyengar, TKV Desikachar, AG Mohan, Srivatsa Ramaswami (my own teacher) and Pattabhi Jois. Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and indeed Vinyasa yoga in general is strongly associated with Pattabhi Jois who was Krishnamacharya's student in Mysore from the 1930s-50s, this book seeks to show how and to what extent contemporary Ashtanga is indepted to Krishnamacharya, the sequence of asana, the vinyasa count, the focus on breath and bandha and drishti, as well what has perhaps been mislaid along the way, the slowness of the breath, the extended stays in asana and vinyasas, the employment of kumbhaka (breath retention) and the integration of asana, pranayama and samyama IE. Dharaa (concentration), Dhyana (meditation) & Samadhi (union).

Ashtanga for Beginners Mind is a guide to the practice of the primary series with a section on shamatha meditation and commentary on how each practice informs the other. While the book is appropriate for all levels of students and gives instruction at the most advanced level, emphasis is placed on the importance of maintaining "beginner's mind."Rather than focusing on a direct and linear approach, Ashtanga for Beginners explores variations to certain postures that are not traditionally offered in the Ashtanga system. This makes the practice accessible to a wider audience. It is sometimes assumed that Ashtanga practice is only for the young and fit; the approach offered here seeks to deny that assumption.Based on years of teaching beginners, the methods described here have successfully taken total beginners into the traditional postures in a surprisingly short period of time.The balanced approach offered here keeps in mind the realities of modern life, in which a yoga student may not have the option to practice the recommended six days a week. By adapting the approach, the practice is still available to those who have the motivation, but not necessarily the time or physical capacity.Offering instruction on shamatha, the book is of interest to yogis who may wish to undertake a meditation practice. It will also interest those who already have a meditation practice, and wish to develop an asana practice to help settle their meditation posture for deeper stability.Venturing from the traditional approach to Ashtanga, the focus is not on perfecting the postures but rather on using the practice as a tool to prepare the body for sitting meditation. This book is especially valuable for yoga practitioners who wish you develop a meditation practice, and for meditators who wish to add a more embodied dimension to their meditation practice.
