Extreme Yoga Poses
for a Cutting-Edge Practice
From the elastic flexibility of the pretzel-like War God to the unflinching strength of the floating-horizontally-on-arms-in-midair Peacock to the balancing act of the elbow-stand-with-feet-bent-backward-onto-the-top-of-the-head Scorpion, Extreme Yoga poses presents serious postures that add challenge and excitement to the yoga practice of anyone who can handle them.
These extreme yoga poses push students to raise each aspect of their practice - breathing, focus, and physical technique - to a higher level.
Unlike new variations of yoga that rely on heated rooms or aerobic sequencing to challenge the student, extreme yoga poses offers traditional advanced postures that have been developed over the centuries by highly adept practitioners.
After a brief introduction, the book presents each posture with a full-page photo of the pose along with positioning tips and advice on breathing techniques and proper focus. This stunningly illustrated book features an artistic presentation that inspires readers to take their practice to the next level with extreme yoga poses.
