Im Yoga vereinigen sich innere Ruhe und Ausgeglichenheit mit einem starken, flexiblen Körper. Die Positionen oder Asanas kräftigen die Muskeln, entspannen den Geist und stärken die Konzentrationsfähigkeit. Aber was genau passiert eigentlich bei den verschiedenen Übungen im Körper? Der anerkannte Yoga-Experte Leslie Kaminoff hat in seinem Klassiker Yoga-Anatomie erstmals zusammengefasst, auf welche Organe, Muskelgruppen und Gelenke sich die einzelnen Asanas auswirken, wie sie das tun und wann welche Atemtechniken einzusetzen sind. Nun hat er den Bestseller komplett überarbeitet und mit zwei zusätzlichen Kapiteln zum Skelett- und Muskelsystem erweitert. Die wichtigsten Übungen und ihre Wirkungen werden auch in dieser Ausgabe durch exakte Illustrationen so detailgenau beschrieben, wie es anhand von Fotos nie möglich wäre. Mit diesem Buch erhält der Leser ein ganz neues Verständnis über die positive Wirkung von Yoga.

Kennen Sie das Gefühl der Enttäuschung und Frustration, wenn Sie einem anderen gegenüber Ihre Wünsche nicht so ausdrücken können, wie Sie das eigentlich gerne möchten? Sagen Sie manchmal gar nicht erst, was Sie sich wünschen, weil Sie den anderen nicht belasten wollen? Tendieren auch Sie dazu, Ihre Wut und Schuldzuweisungen gegen sich selbst zu richten? Judith und Ike Lasater haben sich lange Zeit mit Yoga und Buddhismus beschäftigt und auch sie kennen solche Situationen. Obwohl sie mit dem Yoga-Prinzip des Satya (Wahrhaftigkeit) und der buddhistischen Regel der richtigen Sprache vertraut waren, haben sie erst durch ihre Beschäftigung mit Marshall Rosenbergs Gewaltfreier Kommunikation (GFK) gelernt, diese Prinzipien im alltäglichen Leben umzusetzen. In diesem Buch beschreiben Judith und Ike Lasater ihre Reise durch die Welt der GFK und machen deutlich, wie Sprache zu einer spirituellen Praxis werden kann, die auf mitfühlendem Geben und Nehmen basiert. Sie schildern ihre ganz persönlichen Erfahrungen, geprägt von Versuch und Irrtum, Erfolg und Misserfolg, Lachen und Herausforderungen - selbst beim Schreiben dieses Buches! Das Ergebnis ist eine verständliche Einführung in die GFK mit anschaulichen Beispielen und hilfreichen Übungen. Über den Autor: Judith Hanson Lasater ist Physiotherapeutin und Psychologin. Sie arbeitet als Yoga-Lehrerin in San Francisco und hat zahlreiche Bücher und Aufsätze zum Thema Yoga publiziert. Ike K. Lasater arbeitet weltweit als Trainer und Mediator mit den Techniken der Gewaltfreien Kommunikation. Einer der Schwerpunkte seiner Arbeit ist die Beratung in juristischen Auseinandersetzungen.
