We often hear that yoga is more than just a physical practice, but it can be tricky to understand why that is. Some think yoga is for people who love to get hot and sweaty. Others think of hippies sitting cross-legged meditating on peace, love and brown rice. But what if yoga could actually be a way to live a rich and rewarding lifestyle? A way to infuse meaning and depth into our everyday lives? To live on purpose and with intention?
In The Modern Yogi, respected yoga teacher Brandi Cowl translates traditional yogic teachings into real, tangible and meaningful everyday practices. This book will resonate with any level of yogi who wants to understand the physical practice and the ancient yogic teachings in a modern way.
Brandi shows us how yoga can help us take a step back from the racing, busy, swirling rush of modern life, and instead choose our own path forward.
And with over one hundred and fifty pictures breaking down common yoga poses, it's also a great way to better understand your own body and to deepen your physical practice.
This book is about really living our yoga, both on our mats and in our lives.
