These lessons are based on a holistic approach that focuses on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of yoga. The book introduces basic yoga philosophy in simplified take-home messages that help students live better lives. It also explains how yoga can enrich students' health and why it should be a vital part of their lives. Yoga students commonly - improve their self-awareness and emotional intelligence; - enhance their abilities to focus and concentrate; - develop greater cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular strength and endurance, and flexibility; and - learn how to handle stress (particularly helpful for kids with learning, behavioral, or social and economic challenges).

The book supplies lessons and unit plans, and you'll learn all about the basic physical poses, breathing techniques, play, visualizations, and relaxation methods. You'll also discover how to teach yoga effectively and learn the science and movement principles behind yoga. Teaching yoga can help you create a safe and relaxed atmosphere for students. You can use a multiple-intelligence approach to engage all of your students, particularly those who don't enjoy traditional sport-based activities. Yoga requires little or no equipment and can be adapted to anyone's needs. It helps people slow down and discover, or rediscover, who they are. Best of all, anyone can do it. With the expert guidance and practical approach of this text, yoga can revitalize your classroom and your students.

Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as pain management, psychotherapy, and trauma treatment, this book is ideally designed for yoga practitioners, physicians, medical professionals, health experts, mental health professionals, therapists, counselors, psychologists, spiritual leaders, academicians, researchers, and students.

It teaches an array of CreativeRelaxation techniques using posture, breathing, and mindfulness designed specifically for children with autism and special needs. Drawing on her 30 years of yoga therapy experience with children and those who work with them, the author walks readers through yoga strategies that both calm and energize, emphasizing sensory and bodily awareness and the "sacred space" that is so important for these children.

From New York Times Featured Author With more than 200 color photos of more than 40 common yoga postures, plus detailed instructions and intuitive cues, Yoga's Touch is an easy-to-use reference book designed to empower you to be a more effective, versatile and confident teacher. Martia Bennett Rachman, E-RYT 500 and LMBT, has taught thousands of classes and has trained hundreds of yoga teachers. Renowned for combining therapeutic touch with specific asanas to strengthen and heal the body, she has witnessed firsthand how effective hands-on adjustments can be. However, many teachers--especially new ones--shy away from giving adjustments due to lack of confidence or uncertainty about the precisions of a posture. Yoga's Touch is unique in that, in addition to dramatic, detailed photos of both asanas and adjustments, this easy-to-use reference book offers: * Instructions on the specifics of teaching more than 40 of the most popular yoga postures * Details on how the body works kinesthetically * Emphasis on how prana is affected in a yoga posture * Precise guidance on what and how to touch once a student is in a posture While other programs address one or two of those elements, Martia's signature YogaTouch Method℠ and her diverse background show the interconnectivity of all these elements, within individual postures and throughout a practice--which can be applied regardless of an instructor's teaching style or yoga lineage. This unique yet universal approach to teaching is what makes Yoga's Touch the definitive guide for teachers, studios, and training programs. This book is the definitive guide to hands-on adjustments, alignment and verbal cues for new and experienced yoga instructors!
