An innovative yoga manual for teachers, trainers, and advanced students--craft a safer, more effective yoga practice informed by anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics. Supplemented with more than 100 illustrations and photos, The Yoga Engineer's Manual makes yoga anatomy simple, clear, and accessible. With tips, tools, and practical advice for on-the-mat applications, this essential resource is written for yoga teachers and practitioners of all traditions. It also includes exercises, study guides, and flashcards for an interactive and continuous learning experience. According to author and yoga teacher trainer Richelle Ricard, to experience the full benefits of yoga, success starts with understanding the body: its mechanics, physiology, and our own individual strengths and limitations. Too often, outdated yoga modalities and rote memorization fail trainers and students with a one-size-fits-all approach. Here, The Yoga Engineer's Manual introduces the methods, postures, asanas, and yoga-classroom skills that teachers need to confidently lead safe and effective classes that work for all students. Ricard also offers a step-by-step, layer-by-layer examination of the body's connection between the physical and subtle energies activated through one's personal practice, and discusses dynamic breathing and its link to probing the profound depths of the Self.

In this book the author, Swami Tyagananda, has attempted to bring together Swami Vivekananda’s insights related to the study and practice of karma yoga. The book can be read as a commentary on Swamiji’s teachings on karma yoga. The endnotes in this book point to glowing words [in Swamiji’s karma yoga lectures] in order to encourage the reader to make an independent study of the original books. The structure of this book is simple. The introductory chapter explores the meaning and scope of yoga. It also examines Vivekananda’s classification of yoga into four categories, showing how it cuts across religious boundaries and provides a genuinely universal way to understand spiritual disciplines. The second chapter examines the elements of the karma theory essential to understanding the method of karma yoga. Each of Vivekananda’s four yogas has a “key” with which to unlock its potential. The key to karma yoga is detachment, which is the focus of the third chapter.
