Publisher's Summary

Teaching Yoga is an essential resource for new and experienced teachers as well as a guide for all yoga students interested in refining their skills and knowledge. Addressing 100 percent of the teacher training curriculum standards set by Yoga Alliance, the world's leading registry and accreditation source for yoga teachers and schools, Teaching Yoga is also ideal for use in yoga teacher training programs.

Drawing on a wide spectrum of perspectives, the audiobook covers fundamental topics of yoga philosophy and history, including a historical presentation of classical yoga literature: the Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita, Yoga Sutras of Pataljali, and the main historical sources on tantra and early hatha yoga. Each of the 11 major styles of contemporary yoga is described, with a brief history of its development and the distinguishing elements of its teachings.

Exploring traditional and modern aspects of anatomy and physiology, the audiobook provides extensive support and tools for teaching 108 yoga poses (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation. Teaching Yoga offers practical advice for classroom setup, planning and sequencing classes, as well as the process involved in becoming a teacher and sustaining oneself in the profession. The audiobook has over 200 bibliographic sources, a comprehensive index, and a useful appendix that lists associations, institutes, organizations, and professional resources for yoga teachers.

Monotonous and needs correction

The performance of this book lacks depth and quality. The readers tone is monotonous and she pronounces words incorrectly. I regret buying this audiobook. Read it yourself
