Torso & Spine CoverYoga Actions for Torso & Spine is the fourth in a five-volume series of print and e-books emphasizing actions in focused areas of our bodies – Feet & Ankles, Legs & Knees, Pelvis & Psoas, Shoulders & Arms. Within every volume, each action is displayed in a six-page layout with the first page describing the action and visually demonstrating the experience through a Pre Pose and a five-pose Peak sequence to further expand your experience. Finally, we follow each sequence with Plus Poses to further develop the action and Post Poses to fully relax the body and integrate the asana experience.

In essence, every yoga pose we practice has the intention of bringing us into Tadasana alignment, which maintains the natural curves of the spine and a balanced pelvis. This alignment contributes to the lightness and upward movement of the spine—the ability to stand tall. In Yoga Actions for Torso & Spine, you are building the spinal alignment, strength and flexibility necessary for standing tall. When the spine is unable to hold the torso upright, we overuse muscles and ligaments not intended for this purpose, which eventually leads to the many back-related issues prevalent today.

You may be familiar with the expression, “We are only as young as our spine.” Time and again, we witness this truth in mature practitioners who have the strength and confidence to bend over backwards or stand on their hands. By seeding your awareness with single-pointed concentration on each Torso & Spine yoga action, you will stand taller and experience the rebirth of the hero within you.

“This book is an excellent resource for students wishing to enrich their home practice and for teachers looking for inspirational lesson plans. Full of clearly explained and well chosen yoga actions paired with sequences for all levels.”     Jeremy Williamson
