Book by Travis Eliot
Take time to decompress. Relieve stress. Reduce anxiety. Face the challenges and joys of life with steadiness and grace. That is what A Journey Into Yin Yoga will help you do.
Join world-renowned yoga instructor Travis Eliot as he guides you through this contemporary and effective approach for strengthening your mind, body, and spirit. You will learn about the origins and practice of yin yoga, a passive approach in which poses are held for a few minutes to target the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. You will slowly and mindfully transition between poses as you gently allow those tissues to stretch, facilitating better circulation and joint health and improving flexibility. Throughout, you will learn the benefits, contraindications, alignment points, and modifications so you can adjust the poses to your needs and body type.
Eliot also explains eight breathing techniques and eight meditation practices for improved focus, reduced stress, and enhanced clarity. Ten ready-to-use sequences allow you to target specific goals, including better sleep, spine flexibility, and healthy hips, knees, and shoulders.
A Journey Into Yin Yoga presents 46 yin yoga poses with stunning photos and detailed instruction, along with inspiring quotes, stories, and interviews from celebrities, doctors, and athletes. You will be inspired to discover your unique path to improved mental and physical strength and balance.
“As always I love all yoga books that Human Kinetics publish. But I am really impressed with this book on yin yoga. It’s so jam packed with yogic info. Travis offers us a wondrous amount of yogic philosophy, the 8 limbs, Taoism, and the subtle and physical science of yoga. And I love the personal stories that are peppered through the whole book. The Yin portion of the book are not just beautiful images to look at but they give us an in-depth amount of information, instruction and alternatives for each post of the 46 poses. I totally recommend this book and think it would be a great addition to your yoga book collection. ” ~ Jennifer Malisauskas, Co-found and director of Yoga Directory Canada
