This book more than any I've seen, connects the dots between body and mind awareness. Alan Finger a long-respected tantric teacher shows us these connections in concrete ways that will be useful to anyone who wants to more fully understand how the physical postures of yoga affect their mental states and anyone who wants to shift their psychic energy through physical practices. The book has detailed chapters on each of the chakras and simple questions for the reader to answer to see if that chakra is in balance or needs work. The locations of the chakras are described clearly with highly detailed anatomical drawings showing the spaces they occupy and the muscles and bones in these areas. Numerous special exercises including breathwork and physical postures are then given to aide in balancing the chakra in that area. According to the author, "the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of the chakra system make it a fully comprehensive structure for self-study. In this book, I will show you how to use the chakras to explore all three aspects of your yoga practice and tailor them to your unique personality and circumstances. This journey will take you deep within yourself to experience the balance and union that is yoga." Alan Finger was born and raised in South Africa and was a student of Parmahansa Yogananda, Krishnamacharya and BKS Iyengar, among others. In the United States he founded Yoga Works on the West Coast, which is one of the largest and most influential yoga studios in the country. On the East Coast he founded the popular Yoga Zone studios and later, Be Yoga in New York City. He travels and teaches all over the United States, Canada, Europe and South Africa. He lives in New York City. The suggested companion poster for this book is The Chakra System Poster by Amina Re.
