Whether a long-time practitioner or yoga newbie, you'll find a wealth of information in this book. All of the classic terms and styles are explained in plain English. Chunky and easily portable, you can skip to an applicable section via the Contents pages (#4-5) or simply open the book and read the first passage you see - both ways will a simple and graphically beautiful view into the wide world of yoga.
Choosing my favorite "pearls" of wisdom was no easy feat - and to tell you the truth, they are all fantastic! Below are a few quotes, practices, and lessons from 1,001 Pearls of Yoga Wisdom that help make my current days a bit brighter:
* 11: Simply Stretch: Yoga teaches that since the earth moves constantly, so too should your body's energy - even when lying in bed in the morning. As soon as you wake, stretch your limbs like a starfish to get the energy flowing for the day ahead.
* 48: Open Up and Wait: "Be as a cup, and the universe flows into you. Be as an arrow, and the universe retreats from you." - Zen Proverb
* 109: Flow Visualization: If stress drains you of the energy required to maintain equanimity, close your eyes and visualize the power of a rushing waterfall. Let its incessant flow replenish your resources and drum out tension. Whenever you have the opportunity, sit by a real waterfall, inhaling its stress-relieving negative ions.Read more ›
Also, as another person mentioned, it might be nice to have this book as a spiral so that the pages do not detach from the center spine. Bought this for a person getting her 200 RYT as a gift. It is one of the best reference books I have ever owned.
Note on the packaging of my sender: Wow! The book came in a tattered and torn white envelope and I was amazed the book did not fall out of its packaging. Really risky and I was lucky it came in tact and was not damaged. The package got damaged (shredded!) but the book was fine.
