Bikram Yoga: The Guru Behind Hot Yoga Shows the Way to Radiant Health and Personal Fulfillment

Leave your assumptions—and your excuses—at the door. Bikram Choudhury, the world’s foremost authority on Hot Yoga, is here to show you the true way to self-improvement and a new love of life. Based on a centuries-old and scientifically proven pathway to health, Bikram Yoga will whip your body, mind, and spirit into shape.

Based on Bikram’s signature program of 26 postures and two breathing exercises, this book will help you combat a variety of afflictions—from stress and insomnia to arthritis and back pain—and maintain exceptional health for years to come. The various postures work your muscles, increase flexibility, and flush toxins out of your system—a completely natural, full-body workout without the unhealthy stresses and dangers of a gym. It isn’t easy: It’s a rigorous, body-bending program, and Bikram gives it to you straight in his outspoken, charismatic, and tough-love fashion. But just like the hundreds of thousands of students who go to his studios across the country, you’ll end up sweaty and exhausted but keep coming back for more.

Additionally, Bikram Yoga can help you do much more than drop inches from your belly. Bikram explains how practicing yoga is also a mental and spiritual mission that can help you create a path to true happiness. When it comes to love and marriage, realizing your full potential, or living a life in perfect balance, Bikram’s yogic philosophy shows you how physical strength and flexibility can be a gateway to mental clarity and spiritual calm.

If you’ve never tried Bikram’s yoga, get ready for the deepest, most beneficial class of your life. And if you’re an old hand at it, your understanding of the postures and the sequence will increase exponentially, as will your results.

So are you ready to achieve lasting health and happiness? The time has come for Bikram Yoga. Grab your mat and get ready to change your life.

Yoga for the Lower Back (The Spirit Yoga Health Series)

Yoga for the Lower Back (The Spirit Yoga Health Series)

Yoga for the Lower Back (The Spirit Yoga Health Series)

Yoga is an excellent therapy for healing sore and injured back muscles, reducing recovery time, and preventing re-injury. Yoga helps alleviate lower back pain by strengthening and stretching the muscles of the lower back, reducing inflammation and increasing circulation of blood and prana. For an acute phase of pain, yoga is not appropriate for 48 hours or until the acute period passes. Any movements that increase your symptoms should be avoided. It is always a good idea to seek medical advice before beginning a yoga practice to find the cause of the problem, and then work within your limits, taking precautions recommended by your specialist.

Imagine rising each morning from a peaceful sleep with a sense of freedom and elasticity in your spine, so you could go about your day with confidence, strength and joy.

This book Yoga for the Lower Back is informative & made into an easy to follow yoga class with concise instructions. Each yoga pose also has an image so you can practice with confidence, knowing that you are in correct alignment in each pose. This book also offers you a link to a FREE 12 minute Yoga for the Lower Back video clip demonstrating some of the yoga poses recommended to strengthen and support your back. There are also a couple of other video links threaded through the book showing you how to correctly practice the Mini Sun Salute and the Full Sun Salutation.

This book is part of The Spirit Yoga Health Series, which is a collection of yoga books designed to benefit a particular health concern & made into an easy to follow class. These classes mostly use traditional yoga poses and some yoga therapy exercises that are based on bringing energy (chi or prana) to the meridian channels located through-out the body. These yoga classes bring balance to your body and life so you can function with ease.

Included in this class for the Lower Back are some yoga therapy poses that help to balance the bladder and kidney which are highly beneficial to easing back pain in sufferers. According to Chinese Medicine, our bladder is not only responsible for storing and excreting the urinary waste fluids passed from our kidneys, but it is also related to the functions and balance of the autonomous nervous system. When we become stressed from our busy lifestyles and challenges, our sympathetic nervous system is over active and we then notice tension and pain along our spine. By stimulating the flow of energy along the bladder meridians, we can relieve that tension and pain.

The Author Martine Ford, is a qualified yoga instructor and owner of Spirit Yoga Australia. A former professional dancer, she has an extensive background in ballet, contemporary, character, jazz as well as numerous yoga studies.

Martine trained to Advanced Level in Power Yoga with Duncan Peak of Power Living Australia Yoga (P.L.A.Y). in the Baron Baptiste style of Power Yoga.
