Hatha Yoga for Teachers and Practitioners is a must-read if you want to derive maximum benefits from your yoga practice. Starting from the traditional approach to yoga, you will discover how yoga poses affect the internal body and how systematic yoga practice can increase your holistic health and wellbeing. You will also understand the medically-proven benefits of yoga and you will learn the ancient principles of sequencing asanas according to their corresponding chakras (energy centres). Renowned yoga teacher trainers, Ram Jain and Kalyani Hauswirth-Jain describe how to create safe, fulfilling, and holistic Hatha Yoga practices for different levels, themes, and goals. Within these pages, Ram and Kalyani provide you with practical descriptions of over 200 asanas, with their respective instructions, alignment cues, contraindications, and modifications – which will bring your yoga classes and practice to a whole new level.
This book is an excellent guide into the philosophy and practice of Hatha Yoga!An introduction about the traditional Hatha Yoga philosophy as well as a large practice part makes this book a perfect guide into a deeper understanding of this ancient tradition. Very detailed and exact explanation about asanas (poses) are given which makes it easy for both, practicing the poses by your own as well as instructing them to your students. Nevertheless for me the best detail of the book is that the poses are structured according to the 7 chakras (energy centers). of the human body. I can highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in Hatha Yoga!
This book is a wonderful tool for any Hatha Yoga Teacher! Not only assisting in meaningful sequencing, the book also introduces a great variety of asanas with simple and clever cues how to perform them. Being in-depth in approach yet very easy to read, I would recommend this comprehensive guide for all yoga teachers and experienced practitioners. I am so glad that Ram and Kalyani share their knowledge in such a generous way. One day, I would love to see this in hardcover edition.
After reading this book, you have a great understanding of the various poses you might use to always create a good sequence for your students. And every pose comes with extensive explanation and great photos. Very impressive!
Unread the book to get more information about the history and the foundation of yoga. It was worth it! Recommended for everyone, you likes yoga!
Mein Sohn war in Indien um Yogalehrer zu lernen. Dort haben sie auch genau mit diesem Buch gelernt. Nun haben wir es bestellt, damit er immer wieder nachlesen und sich weiterbilden kann.Empfehlenswert !
Ram and Kalyani did a great job writing “Hatha Yoga for teachers & practitioners”. I am very happy with this book! It’s a great inspiration for your own yoga practice, but also for making variations in sequencing yoga classes. The book gives comprehensive background information about the roots of yoga and also about health related/medical facts. There are guidelines for an effective holistic hatha yoga practice. The main part of the book is dedicated to the practice of asanas and sequencing. Ram and Kalyani use a basic structure following the natural order, ranging the asanas chakra-wise. This you can use as a “skeleton” to vary your classes around. Furthermore the book shows a wide range of asana variations which you can choose from for your practice, varying from easy to more challenging poses. And above that the book is beautiful made, complete with wonderful black and white photos of Kalyani performing all asanas, even the most challenging ones!
I love this book. It is clear and easy to read. Perfect for beginning and advanced Yoga teachers. The poses/asanas are good explained, and you find also advanced & easy options. Nice also that they put some sequence in for variety. Thanks for this wonderful book.
Very useful and well explained book.
