If you've ever wondered what yoga looks like under the skin, now's your chance to find out. Written specifically for yoga, this book shows exactly what happens when you get your body into your most stretchy positions. This part of the series focuses on the main backbends and twists and will teach you how to go deeper into asanas, how to balance your movements, and where all the structural interconnections are. It will show you eactly what muscle groups and joints are being used and how, so you can understand how to isolate certain systems, increase your body awareness, and facilitate therapeutic uses of yoga. The system this book uses is to give five elements for every asana. These are: joint positions, muscles that engage, muscles that stretch, breath, and badhas. The bandhas refers to those muscles groups that are activated and held during the retention of the position, stimulating flow of energy in the position and connecting to the energetic knots in the subtle body. Ray Long MD FRCSC is a board certified orthopedic surgeon and the founder of Bandha Yoga. Ray graduated from The University of Michigan Medical School with post-graduate training at Cornell University, McGill University, The University of Montreal and Florida Orthopedic Institute. He has studied hatha yoga for over twenty years, training extensively with B.K.S. Iyengar and other leading yoga masters.24.95
