The Ancient Art of Yoga

A Modern Application (First Edition)
Edited by Jennifer DeMarco

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-5165-0012-3, 90 pages


The Ancient Art of Yoga: A Modern Application is an enriching backdrop text designed to accompany the physical experience of learning postural yoga. It provides information that works in a real-life setting and streamlines the vast body of knowledge often involved in the study of yoga.

The Ancient Art of Yoga gives readers a brief history of the discipline and explains both traditional and modern interpretations of the Eight Limbs of Yoga. Students will benefit from specific yoga directions and enhance their understanding through tying together the postures with the Eight Limbs of Yoga. They will learn about the benefits of yoga practice, as well as why these benefits are so important.

Recognizing the direct link between inner and outer well-being and designed to facilitate both, The Ancient Art of Yoga is an excellent companion textbook to courses in yoga, stretching, and stress management.
