Yoga and walking are two of the most popular fitness activities, and Walking Yoga combines them. Much of the book focuses on the principles of yoga, descriptions of poses to practice on the mat (not on the trail), and anecdotes about people whose lives have been enriched by walking yoga. About 44 pages (out of 197) describe walking routines that incorporate yoga. The routines start with a yoga warm-up (postures and breathing), and then move on to walking with awareness, rhythm, and integrated breathing. The five routines are as follows: full-on walking (aerobic), walking alone (thinking and sorting out), walking with loved ones (intimacy and connection), contemplative walking (slow, relaxed, inward-focused), and walking with gratitude (sensing and appreciating nature). Each is described in detail.
"The synthesis of walking and yoga happens in the moment when you are fully present: when you walk in time with the rhythm of the breath and your sensory awareness is so acute that you actually tingle with the electricity of life," write authors Ila and Garrett Sarley of the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies. The book includes a variety of clearly described and illustrated poses that you'll need to practice, with special instructions for beginners. --Joan Price
A beautifully offered and ordered transmission of the means to bring vigor and heart to every part of the body. -- Stephan Levine, author of Who Dies and A Year to Live
This book is helpful and practical. A must for anyone committed to personal transformation. -- Baron Baptiste, author of Journey into Power
Walking Yoga answers every question about technique in a user-friendly way. -- Elizabeth Lesser, co-founder, Omega Institute, author of The Seeker's Guide: Making Your Life a Spiritual Adventure
