Produced by the award-winning maranGraphics Group, Maran Illustrated Guide to Yoga is a valuable resource for all readers, regardless of age or fitness level. Instead of describing the myriad ways to perform each pose, Maran Illustrated Guide to Yoga shows you the best way, while the full-color photographs and clear, step-by-step instructions walk the reader through each pose from beginning to end. Thorough topic introductions and useful tips provide additional information and advice to enhance your yoga experience and help meet your individual needs. Maran Illustrated Guide to Yoga is packed with essential information including warm-up poses, breathing exercises, seated poses, chair poses, standing poses, bends, relaxation poses, practice sequences and much more. This book is an invaluable guide for beginners who wish to familiarize themselves with the basics of yoga without having to participate in classes, or as a refresher course for individuals wishing to become reacquainted with yoga. Maran Illustrated Guide to Yoga costs less than the price of one private yoga lesson and will be a permanent resource that can be accessed at any time.
