Ashtanga Yoga for Women
By Sally Griffyn, Michaela Clarke
Ashtanga is a dynamic form of yoga that involves a combination of stretch, strength and endurance. Traditionally, ashtanga has been the preserve of men and, until recently, practiced only in India. This situation is changing, however. More and more women are finding that ashtanga has a lot to offer them in terms of an energizing and empowering experience on physical, spiritual and emotional levels. Ashtanga is experienced by each individual in a different way. Although the sequence of postures remains the same, those who practice them meet intensely different challenges. Women who are larger or smaller, who have given birth or not, who are older or younger will all have different experiences of the sequence, but the experiences will always be life-enhancing. With clear photography of the primary series of poses, background information and interviews with yoga practitioners, this text shows how practice of this form of yoga is suitable for everyone.
