Volume 1 of the Sage Series
AN ESSENTIAL COMPANION FOR DEDICATED YOGIS
As yoga students, we frequently encounter challenging poses that remind us why we love yoga. Yet how much time do we get to spend on these dynamic shapes while in class? Five minutes? Ten? We crave knowledge. We seek inspiration. We want to get into it.
Visvamitrasana: Volume 1 of the Sage Series is an interactive, audio/video e-book that explores the many facets of this intricate pose. The book includes an in-depth breakdown of Visvamitrasana and its variations, a rigorous class in preparation for the pose, a retelling of the legend of the sage Visvamitra, and a discussion of how his story can help us understand the purpose of yoga.
Whether you are a yoga teacher or a dedicated yogi, this is an essential companion for discovering, practicing and enjoying this powerful posture.
A RESOURCE FOR STUDENTS
This book is an opportunity to spend quality time with Visvamitrasana away from the pressures of a packed studio. If you are new to the pose, this is a comprehensive introduction and a resource you can revisit as needed. If the pose unfolds for you naturally, this is a chance to refine and evolve your practice through dedicated self-study.
A GUIDE FOR YOGA TEACHERS
The sage poses are as much a challenge to teach as to do. This volume includes the following resources for teachers:
- Clear cues for Visvamitrasana and three modifications
- Ideas for creative warm-up and sequencing, including 45min, 60min and 90min class options
- Insights into the mythology and spiritual power of the pose for you to share with your students
These tools can help you teach Visvamitrasana more effectively and take your class to the next level. If you currently teach this pose or would like to start, this is an invaluable guide.
ABOUT THE SAGE SERIES
The sage poses (Visvamitrasana, Vasisthasana, Astavakrasana and Marichiasana, to name a few), represent not only some of the most dynamic and intricate arm balances in all of yoga, but also the poise, grace and stillness of seated postures. “Visvamitrasana” is the first volume in a larger project called the Sage Series, and will soon be followed by volumes focused on other sage poses such as Astavakrasana, Koundinyasana and Marichiasana.
