Written by yoga instructor Emily Sharratt and featuring incredible artwork from artist Jade Mosinski, alongside step-by-step instructions for each pose, this is an essential manual and celebration of yoga.
As every yoga practitioner knows, many of the key asanas (or poses) and breath exercises are inspired by the animal kingdom. From camels to cobras, and from lizards to lions, so many animals have loaned their characteristics and shape as well as their name to the practice of yoga. Whether you're channelling the flamboyance of a peacock or the pride and power of an eagle, you are part of an old and beautiful tradition, and one that is practised all over the world.
The format of the book follows the template of a full, well-rounded yoga session, incorporating stretching, strengthening, energizing and calming elements, while drawing on a number of different yoga styles, from vinyasa flows to more static Yin poses.
Yoga Animals is a beautiful collection of poses based in the natural world, which will show you how to embrace this within each yoga session.
