Explore the inner realms of the most common arm balances and inversions. See important postures such as downward dog, headstand, crow pose, and plough like you've never seen them before - fully exposed. Deconstruct the process of getting into and out of a posture and isolating muscle groups through specific contractions. With this book, you'll be able to turn your mind inside and follow the flow of the dynamic of the pose, increase your body awareness, and facilitate therapeutic uses of yoga. The system this book uses is to give five elements for every asana. These are: joint positions, muscles that engage, muscles that stretch, breath, and bandhas. The bandhas refers to those muscles groups that are activated and held during the retention of the position, stimulating the flow of energy in the position and connecting to the energetic knots in the subtle body.
