A yoga book to support everybody. Yapana, an ancient Sanskrit word meaning "The support and extension of life." Leeann Carey's THE YAPANA WAY presents a unique and insightful refuge from the profound imbalances of the frenzied 21st century lifestyle. Those who consider yoga simply an exercise limit the transformative powers of a complete practice. When one pauses to transcend competition with the self, and others, we embrace the true essence and wisdom of yoga - the development of presence and self-acceptance throughout all aspects of life. Yapana Restorative Yoga Therapy introduces prop-supported BEING and STILL poses that extend and deepen the nature of each experience. Strategic support and extension creates the opportunity to inquire, calm, and accept your practice in a knowledgeable and loving way. Yapana practice dispels the myth that yoga props infer weakness or a lack of skill. Supported poses help you meet your body/mind where you are in any given moment. Rather than impose arbitrary rules of destination and time, you will discover the path to living a more mindful and wholehearted life. This comprehensive illustrated guide to Yapana practice is designed for those who desire to cultivate their "inner" teacher, inspire a home practice, or bring their yoga into a new level of understanding and self awareness.
