New Yoga E-book “Visvamitrasana” is an Essential Companion for Discovering, Practicing and Enjoying this Powerful Pose
“Visvamitrasana: Volume 1 of the Sage Series” by Nikki Vilella and Emily Stone is an interactive, audio/video e-book that includes an in-depth breakdown of Visvamitrasana and its variations, a rigorous class in preparation for the pose, a retelling of the legend of the sage Visvamitra, and a discussion of how his story can help us understand the purpose of yoga.
As yoga students, we frequently encounter challenging poses that remind us why we love yoga. Yet how much time do we get to spend on these dynamic shapes while in class? Five minutes? Ten? We crave knowledge. We seek inspiration. We want to get into it. “Visvamitrasana: Volume 1 of the Sage Series” is an Inflextion™ publication that combines text, video, audio and links to help make studying advanced yoga outside the studio as fun and interesting as possible.
The e-book includes:
– Class Introduction (with a brief meditation)
– Audio Class (full 90-minute class with 45-minute & 65-minute options)
– Class Sequence (with photos, videos and cues for each of the poses)
– Visvamitrasana Technique & Variations (with photos, videos and cues)
– Guide to Studying the Sage Poses & the Legend of Visvamitra
Whether you are a yoga teacher or a dedicated yogi, this is an essential companion for discovering, practicing and enjoying this powerful posture.
Purchase the book for your computer on Inflextion.com or for your e-reader on iTunes, Amazon, Barnes & Noble or Kobo.
ABOUT THE SAGE SERIES
The sage poses (Visvamitrasana, Vasisthasana, Astavakrasana and Marichiasana, to name a few), represent not only some of the most dynamic and intricate arm balances in all of yoga, but also the poise, grace and stillness of seated postures. “Visvamitrasana” is the first volume in a larger project called the Sage Series, and will soon be followed by volumes focused on other sage poses such as Astavakrasana, Koundinyasana and Marichiasana.
