One of the great teachers has created this extraordinary celebration of yoga, offering poses in the most iconic and exotic destinations around the world.
There will never be a more beautiful, immersive book on yoga. Hundreds of exquisitely photographed asanas, mudras, affirmations, yantras, mandalas, reflections, intentions, sequences, and techniques—many created for this book—are combined with poses shot on location around the world, from remote beaches to urban enclaves.
Sections are organized by the following areas of yoga benefits: increasing energy, toning and flexibility, stress relief and mindfulness, boosting metabolism, resting and rejuvenating, and inner alignment.
Each chapter has a selection of postures, including some never-before-seen asanas created by Lourdes that encourage muscle mobility, supporting innervation of 600 muscles through mind-body communication. Lourdes shares functional, purposeful, and liberating ways to transition in and out of postures to aid structural integrity.
For committed yogis and teachers alike, this is a portal to encourage deep process work. For those newer to yoga, it is an artfully crafted guidebook to the unique world that exists when yoga practice merges with the universal pulse of heightened physical awareness and philosophical thought. For all practitioners, it is an extraordinarily inspiring demonstration of the myriad places one can create mindfulness and well-being wherever one is in the world.
