Not everyone can do all yoga poses, but everyone can do all yoga actions.
Yoga Actions for Legs & Knees is the second in a five-volume series of e-books emphasizing primary actions for such areas in our bodies as — Feet & Ankles, Pelvis & Psoas (Hips & Groins), Spine & Rib Cage, Arms & Shoulders. With Legs & Knees, we continue to emphasize the importance of self-determination on our path to greater enlightenment. When we so choose, yoga awakens us to every aspect of our being — spiritual, physical, intellectual, communal and emotional (SPICE).
As we both can attest, the Iyengar tradition of using props protects the body from injury while allowing a deeper expression of the posture. Propping the body establishes correct alignment and form while teaching the practitioner to trust support in order to release emotional holding. Our chosen approach is to unite breath fluidity with structural integrity in the ultimate integration of body, mind and spirit. We recognize that not all actions will speak to all people. Our bodies are unique representations of our life experiences, therefore, use the actions and sequences that support your transformation goals. No one knows your body, mind and spirit better than you so let your inner wisdom guide your choices.
“At first glance, Creating Space: Yoga Actions for Legs & Knees appears to be a simple, uncluttered instruction resource that offers clear descriptions and images of yoga postures. Upon spending more time interacting with the brilliance of technology, one discovers the depth of detail layered into this gem of a practice guide book. Helen and Candace have succeeded in creating a book that invites experimentation and a deepening of current practice, skillfully guiding the practitioner to ‘dig deeper into your inner experience and awareness’. Intelligent use of props ensures a safe, aligned practice for all levels while ‘teaching the practitioner to trust support in order to release emotional holding’. The partnership shared between Helen, a ‘stone body’ and Candace, a ‘plant body’ provides the reader with a full range of action instructions, making this resource applicable to a broad spectrum of yoga enthusiasts.” Darlene Sveinson
“Candace and Helen have merged their years of workshops, training and personal practice into book form. As a visual learner, I appreciate the pictures of the poses, but particularly like the skeletal images and arrows showing the action’s direction. For senior yoga teachers, teachers in training and anyone practicing yoga, these books give you tools for clearer understanding and move you forward on your yoga journey. Thanks Candace & Helen for sharing.” Nancy Cherewayko
