Let your body shape your practice..

‘Being led to conform to a teacher’s personal viewpoint is inevitably disempowering for the student.  All power lies with the teacher as the possessor of knowledge…If we can change our approach to yoga from one that is systematised to one that is more individualised, we can free ourselves from certain constraints.  Postures can now be developed around the body, rather than the body around the postures.’  

Peter Blackaby, Intelligent Yoga: Re-educating the mind and body.

This book is great for anyone looking for a grounded and fresh perspective on anatomy in yoga (and anatomy in general), and for anyone questionning what yoga means today:

‘Adopting a humanistic approach to living and to yoga, one that is centered around the theme of human flourishing, is the premise underpinning this book.’ Peter Blackaby
