Marilyn Barnett - All books by this author
Yoga is many centuries old, but hot yoga, developed only in the 1960s, has already proven a beneficial and popular variation on the ancient art. Hot yogaalso known as Bikram, after its originator, Bikram Choudhuryis a method for working out in rooms heated up to 100 degrees, thus enhancing muscle suppleness and aiding body detoxification. This heavily illustrated book describes each of the 26 progressively more challenging hot yoga postures. Aided by color photos, the author gives detailed instruction on all hot yoga poses, which she claims unite mind, body, and spirit when performed in rigorous but enjoyable workouts. Each pose is preceded by information on its specific benefits. Practitioners are advised to end each session with cool-down techniques that relax both mind and body. The book concludes with recommendations for hot yoga as treatment for complaints such as back pain, sports injuries, and stress. Hot yoga helps its practitioners explore their limits and enhance their physical and mental well-being. Approximately 50 color photos and more than 100 line drawings.
