Yoga Mind, Body and Spirit by Donna Farhi

Donna Farhi is an internationally well respected, visionary yoga teacher who, in this volume, shares her special philosophy, while delving deep into instructions on the poses. She uniquely leads us through multiple variations of the poses including restorative and prenatal forms and the correct use of props.
     For Donna Farhi, the human body is a symphony of muscles, bones, nerves, breath and spirit. In her incredibly detailed exposition, Farhi focuses on the "intelligent patterns" that we can align within our yoga practice, allowing us greater harmony and expressiveness through movement. She begins by taking us through the "living principles" of yoga, the yamas and niyamas, and then identifies "the seven moving principles" - breathe, yield, radiate, center, support, align, engage and return. Each principle of movement is illustrated in depth through drawings showing precise alignments of the muscles and skeleton.
     After laying this extensive foundation of philosophy and alignment, Farhi moves into part two, the asanas. Through text and photographs, she demonstrates the postures and includes multiple variations of each while also showing preparatory stretches with specific guidance for beginners and advanced practitioners. She includes comprehensive instructions on how to modify poses for every level and covers restorative practices using props such as blankets, bolsters and blocks. There is also a special prenatal symbol for each pose indicating in which trimesters it is safe for pregnant women to practice. Farhi concludes the book with a thorough guide for structuring your own sequences while offering several suggested sequences made up of the postures in the book.
     This is an extremely thorough guide to a well-rounded practice unifying styles of ashtanga, Iyengar, Kripalu and viniyoga. It extensively covers restorative and prenatal practices and the proper use of props. It is a comprehensive, authoritative work which will be welcome on any yogis bookshelf.

     Donna Farhi has taught yoga for over two decades and is a registered movement therapist. She travels internationally for her retreats and teacher trainings. She is one of America's most respected yoga instructors and has been a columnist for both Yoga Journal and Yoga International. She lives in New Zealand.
