A joyful and indispensable guide filled with astonishing, important, and little-known information about the vagina that will equip a new generation to make informed choices about their sexual health and happiness. The Wonder Down Under is a comprehensive guide to a miraculous and complex part of the body that too few of us (regardless of gender) are all that familiar with--the vagina. With wisdom, humor, and scientific aplomb, medical student Ellen Støkken Dahl and Dr. Nina Brochmann take readers on a fascinating journey of female sexual organs and sexual health--from the clitoris to contraception to cervical cancer. More than a user's manual, this book is the funny, frank tribute to the vagina that we have been waiting for. The Wonder Down Under is filled with astonishing, essential, and little-known information--relayed with both medical expertise and genuine empathy. Did you know, for instance, that female and male sex organs are merely variations on the same basic structure? Or that there's no such thing as a virginity test--because examining the hymen cannot meaningfully indicate whether or not someone's had sex? Brochmann and Dahl have written a tour-de-force about the biology, anatomy, and reality of the female body, examining the many ways in which widespread misinformation and silence about the vagina have been harmful to women over time. The Wonder Down Under makes crucial contributions to the discussion: the book was an instant bestseller that sold out in its native Norway in just three days. Since then it has been acquired by publishers in more than two dozen countries around the world. The Wonder Down Under is a joyful and indispensable book that will educate readers of all kinds and equip a new generation to make informed choices about their sexual well-being.

With simple, easy-to-learn techniques and a down-to-earth approach, the return to print of Yoga for You in English has been long overdue.

I’ve learned how to extract the beauty of an ordinary day. I’ve learned that the best high exists in the joy—or the sadness—of the present moment. Yoga allows me to surf the ripples and sit with the mud, while catching glimpses of the clarity of my home at the bottom of the lake: my true self. The very first time Saidman Yee took a yoga class, she left feeling inexplicably different—something inside had shifted. She felt alive—so alive that yoga became the center of her life, helping her come to terms with her insecurities and find her true identity and voice. From learning to cope with a frightening seizure disorder to navigating marriages and divorces to becoming a mother, finding the right life partner, and grieving a beloved parent, Saidman Yee has been through it all—and has found that yoga holds the answers to life’s greatest challenges. Approachable, sympathetic, funny, and candid, Saidman Yee shares personal anecdotes along with her compassionate insights and practical instructions for applying yoga to everyday issues and anxieties. Specific yoga sequences accompany each chapter and address everything from hormonal mood swings to detoxing, depression, stress, and increased confidence and energy. Step-by-step instructions and photographs demonstrate her signature flow of poses so you can follow them effortlessly. Yoga for Life offers techniques to bring awareness to every part of your physical and spiritual being, allowing you to feel truly alive and to embody the peace of the present moment.

The Concise Book of Yoga Anatomy is the definitive guide to the study of yoga anatomy--a perfect companion book for any yoga teacher or practitioner seeking to understand the biomechanics of the body as it applies to yoga practice. The book is visually designed in quick reference format to offer useful information about the main skeletal muscles that are central to yoga, with asanas to demonstrate the particular muscles and muscle groups. Over 230 full color illustrations detail each muscle's origin, insertion, and action in order to clearly reveal how the muscles come into play in the movements and postures of yoga. Knowledge of yoga anatomy is paramount to the ability to teach or practice with no injury to oneself or others. With this foundation in place, it is possible to focus on the spiritual element of yoga as well as the physical. Yoga is a union of the two, so where appropriate, the more profound side of the practice is mentioned as it relates to the body. The Concise Book of Yoga Anatomy illustrates the form and function of the muscles first, then interlays the muscles into the yoga posture for full understanding in a clear and integrated way, explaining the technique of the asanas, as well as other important aspects of yoga: pranayamas, the bandhas, and chakras.

YOGA "No puedo pensar en ningún libro mejor para reomendar a un amigo que empieza a entusiamarse con el yoga, pero que está desconcertado por la abundancia de diferentes escuelas y sus enseñanzas, contradictorias a veces. Además, me vería en apuros para pensar en u libro que pudiera recomendar más ampliamente a cualquier estudiante de yoga, que busca profundizar más en esta práctica. . . . El gran regalo de El corazón del yoga no radica simplemente en la profundidad del aprendizaje de Desikachar, sino en la compasión, la gentileza, el sentido práctico y el espíritu realista que impregna este libro." Yoga Journal "Lea este libro de principio a fin y empezará a entender de qué se trata el yoga." --The Sunday Times "Quienes están interesados en entender lo que es el yoga, aquellos que buscan un contexto más extenso y se enfocan en su práctica hatha, aquellos que buscan el Yoga Sutra como un guía y todos aquellos directa o indierectamente, han amado y recibido algún beneficio de Krishnamacharya o Desikachar, desearán tener este libro." --Yoga International "Una valiosa fuente de información sobre la teoría y práctica del yoga. Indispensable para estudiantes y maestros por igual." --Indra Devi, autora de Yoga for You Sri Tirmalai Krishnamacharya, quien vivió más de 100 años, fue uno de los más grandes yoguis de la era moderna. Los elementos de su enseñanza se han difundido por todo el mundo, gracias a los trabajos de B.K.S. Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois e Indra Devi, en sus primeros años, fueron alumnos de Krishnamacharya. Su hijo T.K.V. Desikachar vivió y estudió con él toda su vida y ahora enseña la gama total del yoga de Krishnamacharya y tiene como base las enseñanzas fundamentales de su padre, donde se sostiene que las prácticas se deben adaptar continuamente a las necesidades cambiantes del individuo, para lograr el máximo valor terapéutico. En El corazón del yoga Desikachar ofrece una síntesis del sistema de su padre y su propio acercamiento práctico, que describe como "un programa para la espina, a cualquier nivel, físico, mental y espiritual." Este es el primer texto sobre yoga, que da una idea general de la seuencia, paso a paso, para desarrollar una práctica completa de acuerdo a los antiguos principios del yoga. Desikachar discute todos los elementos del yoga-posturas y contraposturas, respiración consciente, meditación y filosofía-y muestra al estudiante de yoga cómo debe desarrollar una práctica que se ajuste a su estado actual de salud, su edad ocupación y estilo de vida. Krishnamacharya daba al Yoga Sutra de Patañjali un valor muy alto. En este libro se incluy en su totalidad, con la traducción y comentarios de Desikachar. A la segunda edición de El corazón del Yoga se agregó el Yogañjalisaram, treinta y dos poemas compuestos por Krishnamacharya que capturan la esencia de sus enseñanzas y aún más, hacen de El corazón del yoga un hito en la transmisión del yoga, de los antiguos maestros al mundo moderno. Un ingeniero estructural teórico, T.K.V. Desikachar vivió y estudió con su padre hasta la muerte de éste en 1989. Ha dedicado su vida a la enseñanza del yoga a personas de todas condiciones y niveles de habilidad, y en la actualidad enseña en la escuela fundada en memoria de su padre en Madrás, así como en Europa, los Estados Unidos, Australia y Nueva Zelandia.

The first yoga text to outline a step-by-step sequence for developing a complete practice according to viniyoga--yoga adapted to the needs of the individual. • A contemporary classic by a world-renowned teacher. • This new edition adds thirty-two poems by Krishnamacharya that capture the essence of his teachings. Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, who lived to be over 100 years old, was one of the greatest yogis of the modern era. Elements of Krishnamacharya's teaching have become well known around the world through the work of B. K. S. Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois, and Indra Devi, who all studied with Krishnamacharya. Krishnamacharya's son T. K. V. Desikachar lived and studied with his father all his life and now teaches the full spectrum of Krishnamacharya's yoga. Desikachar has based his method on Krishnamacharya's fundamental concept of viniyoga, which maintains that practices must be continually adapted to the individual's changing needs to achieve the maximum therapeutic value. In The Heart of Yoga Desikachar offers a distillation of his father's system as well as his own practical approach, which he describes as "a program for the spine at every level--physical, mental, and spiritual." This is the first yoga text to outline a step-by-step sequence for developing a complete practice according to the age-old principles of yoga. Desikachar discusses all the elements of yoga--poses and counterposes, conscious breathing, meditation, and philosophy--and shows how the yoga student may develop a practice tailored to his or her current state of health, age, occupation, and lifestyle. This is a revised edition of The Heart of Yoga.

The chapters of this book are nothing but mirrors for seeing your ''self'' from different angles. And though the journey we are about to embark on is an inner one, it will draw upon every aspect of your life. The only requirement asked of you is the willingness to honestly look at yourself in the most natural, intuitive manner. Remember, if we are seeking the root of ''self,'' what we are actually seeking is you. As you read through these pages, you will find that you know much more than you thought you did about some very deep subjects. The fact is, you already know how to find yourself; you have just gotten distracted and disoriented. Once refocused, you will realize that you not only have the ability to find yourself, you have the ability to free yourself. Whether you choose to do so or not is entirely up to you. But upon completion of your journey through these chapters, there will be no more confusion, no more lack of empowerment, and no more blaming others. You will know exactly what must be done. And should you choose to devote yourself to the ongoing journey of self-realization, you will develop a tremendous sense of respect for who you really are. It is only then that you will come to appreciate the full depth of meaning in the advice: ''This above all: to thine own self be true.'' ---- Introduction
