Yoga for Everyone Book Review:

Yoga is for every body, including yours! For years, yoga books have asked readers to bend over backward (literally!) to conform to their physical demands. It's time for the opposite-for readers to demand that yoga conform to their individual needs. It's time for a yoga book to reflect the broader population that would benefit from a yoga practice geared toward them. It's time for Yoga for Everyone! This book offers yoga for every type of body: those who are big, small, elderly, pregnant, or of various physical abilities-everyone. No matter who you are or what you look like or what your abilities are, you can do all 50 poses in this book. The variations to classic poses in this book will also allow you to perform all 10 sequences, which combine different poses into one singular experience and focus on specific physical and mental benefits. So forget what you've heard. Yoga isn't just for the privileged few. It's meant to be enjoyed by everybody and every body. Yes, you can do yoga-and Yoga for Everyone will show you how! --------------------------------- "Dianne is a wonderful teacher with a voice and a message that's absolutely needed not only in the yoga community but also in the world. I'd go as far as to say that this book is the most important yoga book released this year. This book smashes the myth of the thin, able-bodied yogi and provides a safe introduction to the art of yoga in a way that's accessible to all. Yoga is for everyone!" - Rachel Brathen, author of Yoga Girl "Dianne Bondy is truly a leader in the yoga world. Her unwavering commitment to accessibility and inclusiveness is demonstrated perfectly in her new book, Yoga for Everyone. This is a great book for yoga teachers and yoga students of all levels. If you're intimated by the conventional imagery of yoga, if you think yoga isn't for you, or if you're a teacher looking for tools to make the practice approachable for everyone, this book will be a valuable tool. Yoga is an ancient science of the soul, and Dianne's work aims to bring these universal teachings to different kinds of folks with the heart and wisdom that's a vital part of her contribution to the world." - Kino MacGregor, yoga instructor "Dianne is a force, a personal inspiration, and someone who knows her power and uses it to uplift others. Western yoga and wellness spaces are severely lacking safety and inclusion. Oftentimes, walking into those spaces can feel more marginalizing than healing. Dianne's book is full of resources anybody can use-teacher or student-to create an accessible and welcoming space. The visual representation of diverse bodies and abilities provides a needed reminder that yoga in indeed for all of us. Thank you, Dianne!" - Dana Falsetti, yoga instructor

The Story of Yoga Book Review:

How did an ancient Indian spiritual discipline turn into a $20+ billion-a-year mainstay of the global wellness industry? What happened along yoga's winding path from the caves and forests of the sages to the gyms, hospitals and village halls of the modern West? This comprehensive history sets yoga in its global cultural context for the first time. It leads us on a fascinating journey across the world, from arcane religious rituals and medieval body-magic, through muscular Christianity and the British Raj, to the Indian nationalist movement and the arrival of yoga in the twentieth-century West. We discover how the practice reached its present-day ubiquity and how it became embedded in powerful social currents shaping the world's future, such as feminism, digital media, celebrity culture, the stress pandemic and the quest for an authentic identity in the face of unprecedented change. Shearer's revealing history boasts a colorful cast of characters past and present, who tell an engaging tale of scholars and scandal, science and spirit, wisdom and waywardness. This is the untold story of yoga, warts and all.

Yoga Sequencing Book Review:

Yoga Sequencing: Designing Transformative Yoga Classes presents the essential principles and methods for planning and sequencing yoga classes. Addressing one of the most popular topics in the yoga profession, this book offers sixty-seven model sequences of yoga poses (asanas) that cover the broad range of yoga student experience, including multiple sequences for beginning, intermediate, and advanced students; yoga for kids, teens, women across the life cycle, and seniors; classes to relieve depression and anxiety; and sequences for each of the major chakras and ayurvedic constitutions. Each sequence provides guidance for teaching the different breathing (pranayama) and meditation techniques that give yoga its transformative power. Enhanced with over 2,000 instructional photos and an elaborate guide to the constituent elements of over 150 yoga asanas, the book draws equally from ancient yoga philosophy and contemporary insights into functional anatomy, biomechanics, and kinesiology. The nuanced interrelationships among asanas within and between the seven asana families are explored and the anatomy of opening and stabilizing each pose is explained for sequences designed around specific needs and intentions. A comprehensive appendix includes a glossary of yoga-related terms, an alphabetical asana index with thumbnail photographs of each asana, a class planning worksheet, representative sequences from several popular styles of hatha yoga, and a list of resources for further exploring sequencing and the larger practice of teaching yoga.
