A clear, concise guidebook to the essentials of yogic thought and practice Many people think yoga simply means postures and breathing. Not true. The intention of this short guide is practical and straightforward: to say what yoga really is and to apply its principles to everyday life. It leads us through the eight-limbed system, a coherent framework that has been handed down and elaborated upon for thousands of years and consists of five "outer limbs," which pertain to our experience of the social world and the operation of our senses, and three "inner limbs," which focus on the mind. Stuart Ray Sarbacker and Kevin Kimple present the eight-limbed system as something that can be turned to again and again to deepen and expand understanding and practice. As an introduction and overview to the essence of yoga, The Eight Limbs of Yoga is unparalleled for clarity, usefulness, and concision.

The long awaited revised 2nd edition of The Yoga Therapy Handbook has arrived! It is greatly expanded, colorful and much more descriptive than the original edition from 2007. The new version is contained in four distinct volumes (Book 1-4) that are being sold separately with an "a-la-cart" styling so readers can "pick and choose" from what works best for them as either a novice/beginner or advanced Yoga therapist. Perhaps, what is most intriguing, though, about this 2nd edition is that in the interim period the author made a dramatic and controversial decision to embrace Al-Islam. Accordingly, this edition wrestles with those quintessential elements that make a "comparative religion" flow to this text quite different than any other Yoga therapy book on the market today. The author also revives his review of the multicultural expressions as well in both Yoga Science and meditation practices. The creative artistic flair of the illustrator (Sue Jeong Ka) is still woven into the fabric of this text. This Fine Artist who is originally from South Korea (ROK) now lives and works in the USA (New York City.

For five decades, negative body image has been a major focus of study due to its association with psychological and social morbidity, including eating disorders. However, more recently the body image construct has broadened to include positive ways of living in the body, enabling greater understanding of embodied well-being, as well as protective factors and interventions to guide the prevention and treatment of eating disorders. Handbook of Positive Body Image and Embodiment is the first comprehensive, research-based resource to address the breadth of innovative theoretical concepts and related practices concerning positive ways of living in the body, including positive body image and embodiment. Presenting 37 chapters by world-renowned experts in body image and eating behaviors, this state-of-the-art collection delineates constructs of positive body image and embodiment, as well as social environments (such as families, peers, schools, media, and the Internet) and therapeutic processes that can enhance them. Constructs examined include positive embodiment, body appreciation, body functionality, body image flexibility, broad conceptualization of beauty, intuitive eating, and attuned sexuality. Also discussed are protective factors, such as environments that promote body acceptance, personal safety, diversity, and activism, and a resistant stance towards objectification, media images, and restrictive feminine ideals. The handbook also explores how therapeutic interventions (including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Dissonance, and many more) and public health and policy initiatives can inform scholarly, clinical, and prevention-based work in the field of eating disorders.

An excellent resource for teachers and students of yogasana, medical professionals, and bodywork practitioners, A Handbook for Yogasana Teachers presents novel aspects of physiology and neuroscience as they apply to the practice of yoga. If you have ever wondered why we do yogasana as we do, you will likely find the answers within these pages. Endorsements "A Handbook for Yogasana Teachers provides a lucid blending of Eastern and Western science that helps us understand the human body from both perspectives! It is a major contribution to both medicine and yoga." Rajvi Mehta, editor, Yoga Rahasya, Mumbai "This book is quite obviously the result of extensive thought and effort on the part of the author. It contains a wide range of information, blending present-day anatomy and physiology with knowledge of yoga from ancient texts." Dr. Shirley Telles, Swami Vivekananda Yoga Research Foundation, Bangalore "There is a paucity of books such as this handbook ... I liked the colorful descriptions and stories interspersed throughout." Lois Steinberg, teacher and therapist, Iyengar Yoga Institute of Champaign-Urbana "The book is unique in its mixture of scientific explanation and practical application ... As a practicing Iyengar teacher with no medical background, I have had little choice but to accept the words of B. K. S. and Geeta Iyengar in their description of the effects and benefits of poses ... I have had no reason to doubt them, but when teaching students with a Western mind, it helps to present them with a 'scientific reason' why." Renata Cardinal, certified Iyengar yoga teacher, Watchung Yoga Arts Center, New Jersey "Mel Robin's labor of love has combined his knowledge of modern anatomy and physiology and traditional yoga beliefs (mostly in the Iyengar tradition) together with personal opinion and analysis based on years of teaching and practice within this tradition. By painstakingly collecting this material together, he has done a great service to the yoga community, especially those with an interest in yoga therapy and the intersection between yoga and Western medicine." Dr. Ruth Gilmore, faculty, Yoga Therapy Centre, London "A Handbook for Yogasana Teachers is useful for yoga teachers and serious yoga students who wish to bridge their understanding of Western and Eastern concepts. It may help practitioners of other Eastern methods of healing find ways to explain what they are doing to Western students or clients. Western doctors who want to understand Eastern healing methods will find the book extremely beneficial." Jessie Thompson, director, the Yoga Loft of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania

The Meditation Handbook provides a comprehensive overview of meditation techniques, including those taught by the great spiritual traditions. It describes the many benefits of the practice, and aims to provide readers with much of what they need to know in order to decide if meditation is right for them. Each of the most important techniques is described in its essential details, using concepts that can be easily understood by the general reader - although the book will also be helpful to those with experience who wish to develop their practice further. Professor Fontana emphasises that meditation is an outstanding technique not only for developing harmony and inner peace and for enhancing physical and psychological health, but also for enabling the practitioner to explore the mysteries of the mind and the spiritual dimension to existence. The book is unique in its breadth and scope, in its freedom from doctrine and dogma and in the authentic wisdom it builds upon - the author has personal experience of many major Eastern and Western traditions. Written in accessible language throughout, it concludes with sections on the nature of enlightenment and on the mysteries of life and death.

A comprehensive guide to emotional blockages in the energy body and their physical manifestations • Details how emotional trauma, long-term stress, and environmental influences cause energy blockages in the subtle body that affect the physical body • Explores more than 30 specific physical ailments, detailing the energetic origins of each condition and which meridians, chakras, and points are affected • Explains how to interpret and work with energies released in massage and during yoga practice In this comprehensive guide to subtle energy and its associated physical manifestations, Robert Henderson reveals how the discomfort and pain you carry in your physical body is related to the energies of the life you have experienced. The author explains the eight types of subtle energy: Emotional, which carries anger, fear, love, and other emotions; Mental, which affects patterns of behavior, beliefs, actions, and memories; Spiritual, which influences intuition, inspiration, and transcendent states; Sexual, which affects creativity, spontaneity, and excitement; Environmental, which arises from stress at work, tension at home, and other outside influences; Interpersonal, which comes from interactions with family, lovers, and friends; Ancestral, the energy of the lives of your parents up to the time of your conception; and Karmic, the energy of your past lives. Detailing how these energies are drawn in by the chakras and distributed throughout the body by the meridians, the author explains how suffering acute emotional trauma or long-term stress causes negative energies to accumulate in the energy body much like fat deposits. Our physical body reacts to these energy blockages, leading to physical conditions such as closed hips, tight hamstrings, digestive distress, chronic pain, and persistent tension in areas like the shoulders. The author explores more than 30 specific physical ailments, providing the energetic origins of each condition, the exact location of the corresponding energy blockage, and which meridians, chakras, and points are affected. He covers sexual energy in depth, explaining how to handle repressed energy as it is released during yoga or massage. As the author shows, physical ailments caused by the energies of hurtful life events can be healed through massage and yoga, allowing you to become open to the free and spontaneous circulation of energy through the subtle body.
