  • Richard Freeman: Yoga Chants

    Richard Freeman: Yoga Chants
    Richard Freeman Chants - its a 2 cd set. The first CD is instructional, he explains some of the history and technique, and you sing along by repeating first a word, then a line, of each chant. I think there are 3-4 chants he teaches in this way -including the ashtanga invocation, which I've always liked. He explains things very clearly. The second cd is him chanting and playing the harmonium. He has a good voice, not a great voice, but there is something incredibly soothing about listening to him. -Jane

  • Cindy Dollar: Yoga Your Way : Customizing Your Home Practice

    Cindy Dollar: Yoga Your Way : Customizing Your Home Practice
    This is a great book for home practice. It's spiral bound and the pages are split so that on the left the pages are practice sequences and on the right each page is one of 44 asanas. The 31 practice sequences range from 10 to 90 minutes. On the back of each asana page are several modifications with various props. The author is an Iyengar teacher and the instructions are very detailed. What I like most about it is that the variety of sequences will prevent me from doing the same practice all the time which is what usually happens when I do yoga on my own. -Danielle

    This book is the most accesible of all the more touchy-feely anatomy books I have - daily exercises of body exploration. -Lianne

This is a great post! I started practicing doing inversions (headstand, forearm stand, tripod headstand) about 6 months ago. Before that I was terrified to go upside down. Now I love them, except for handstand, I'm still working on that one.

Marilyn, your comments are so encouraging - thanks! You have done a beautiful job on your blog - very attractive.


Idea of media for inversions.
(just an excuse to post since I saw the requet for posts)

someone go check Tony Sanchez ... his series of challenges could have inversions ..
As long as I have his name up .. Watching his work is beyond amazing........ a A South America who has tried to enter yoga as an olympic event... I believe he'd have a chance to take home the gold and be no less the yogi for it.

He is precision, perfection and strength looks so exotic.. serious.. focus...a master.
... Those impressed by Ana Forrest need to see Tony Sanchez advanced challenges tapes.

He studied with Bikram and Bikram's teacher in India ... but offers a more advanced program than Bikram .. and keeps the heat at a comfortable warm +

Anyway he might have some interesting short term inversions.
