  • 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

You might want to consider the breathing integrated asanans in Yoga for Transformation by Gary Kraftsow.

Thanks for the suggestion, Amit. I have Gary's book and have done a short 2-hour workshop with him, but that viniyoga approach didn't click with me. I seem to need a little more tapas in my asana practice right now. I know a lot of people don't see the need for a seperate breathing practice, but I am finding it a nice way to end my day.


Lianne, I just want to tell you that since this breathing focused month, I've almost finished Donna Fahri's book (I love it, and it has enhanced my stress managment teaching!). Purchased Richard Freeman's pranayama and listened to the intro, as well as Felicity green's pranayama. And my own copy of Rosen's book. I'm loving it-thanks for the inspiration to delve deeper.
