The First Yoga Book to Teach the Yoga Teacher
Guiding Yoga's Light: Yoga Lessons for Yoga Teachers is the first book written for Yoga teachers by a Yoga teacher and includes 56 easy-to-follow succinct scripts for beginning to advanced students. The yoga "lessons" include a wide array of yogic concepts from diaphragmatic breathing to creating mindfulness to applying yoga philosophy to everyday living. Guiding Yoga's Light has been in Amazon's top 25 best-selling yoga books since its publishing date in September 2004. With over 18 million people in the U.S. now practicing yoga, this is a much needed book for yoga instructors and yoga students. Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 10, 2005 -- Yoga teacher Nancy Gerstein, author of Guiding Yoga’s Light: Yoga Lessons for Yoga Teachers (September 2004 by Pendragon Publishing, Inc.) has a unique, yogic educational idea. She wrote a book for yoga teachers to help them easily convey the deeper teachings of yoga into their classrooms. The reason: the number of yoga practitioners in the U.S has quadrupled in the last 5 years to 18 million. Along with these numbers is the increased demand of teachers needed to take on the needs for these yoga enthusiasts. Gerstein’s Guiding Yoga’s Light: Yoga Lessons for Yoga Teachers is the first book of its kind to honor the 5,000 year old tradition of yoga and offer the teacher 56 yoga tradition-based lesson plans. Each Lesson includes a short script, asanas (postures), ways to take the lessons "off the yoga mat", and wise words or quotes for a better understanding of the lesson. "I wanted to write a book that assembled and distilled the essential core yoga information into easy-to -follow 2-10 minute ‘scripts’ that any teacher could use as their own," says Gerstein. " This way, the teacher can easily thread the ancient teachings, philosophy and physical, mental and spiritual benefits of the practice into their classroom." Guiding Yoga’s Light embraces a wide array of yogic concepts: from teaching basic diaphragmatic breathing to creating mindfulness to applying the Yamas and Niyamas (first two limbs of Raja Yoga) to Hatha practice. Any yoga teacher or serious yoga student will find this an invaluable teaching and learning tool. "In addition to the teacher, any yoga student seeking to develop his or her own home practice would find this book to be enlightening and engaging. They could easily find a "lesson" of interest, read it, incorporate the suggested postures into their home practice, and meditate over the message or theme of the lesson throughout the practice and beyond," says Gerstein. Nancy Gerstein is a Himalayan Institute Certified Yoga Teacher, Reiki-Master Practitioner, and frequent workshop speaker.
