Description

Applying the wisdom of hatha yoga to weight-lifting exercises, fitness trainer Max Popov's Weight-Resistance Yoga reveals the path to transforming strength-training sessions into a mindful, calm, and meditative yoga practice.

Fully illustrated instructions for 26 weight-resistance exercises offer tips for safely, effectively, and efficiently strengthening the neck, shoulders, arms, torso, hips, knees, and ankles using machines, free weights, and the body itself as resistance. Popov's guidelines for becoming fully absorbed in the body's movements against resistance--movements made within stillness and stability and coordinated with rhythmic breathing--point the way to performing the exercises with tranquillity. To support the contemplative state of this practice, Popov includes 20 themed meditations on the embodied experience of performing the exercises.

The perfect complement to weight-surrender yoga (the yoga of flexibility postures), weight-resistance yoga (the yoga of strengthening exercises) allows you to become stronger, fully inhabit your body, empty your mind of everyday preoccupations, and fill your soul with comprehensions of deeper realities--creating a yoga practice that provides strength, attentiveness, serenity, and spiritual illumination.

MAX POPOV is a fitness trainer and scholar of modern yoga. He began developing weight-resistance yoga in the late 1980s by applying the teachings of yoga master B. K. S. Iyengar to the strength-training teachings of famed 1920s Indian bodybuilder K. V. Iyer.

Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...

Charing, Howard G
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

After surviving a serious elevator crash in London, Howard G. Charing found he had developed healing touch as well as the ability to hear voices and experience visions--just as a healer in Italy had predicted only a week before the accident. He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.

Clemens, Raymond
Yale University Press

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...
