Ashtanga Yoga is a graceful, athletic type of yoga that has become extremely popular in recent years. Here Kino MacGregor, a disciple of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, the great modern guru who developed Ashtanga Yoga, gives a comprehensive view of the practice and shows how Ashtanga is fundamentally a path of spiritual transformation and personal development. MacGregor delves into the history and tradition of Ashtanga Yoga and reveals how its philosophy manifests in contemporary lifestyle and dietary choices. She also explains the essential connection of breath, posture and gaze that is the core of the practice. Her clear, step-by-step instruction of the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series - including standing, seated, backbending, twisting, hip-opening, and finishing postures - is a wonderful initiation for those who are new to the practice, and it will motivate experienced yogis toward perfection of the form. Throughout, MacGregor shares her own personal yoga journey and her devotion to yoga as a path of self-realisation in a way that will inspire all practitioners.
