Yoga for the Joy of It! immerses the beginning yoga student in the history and practice of yoga by educating the student on the background of yoga, its health benefits, and showing specific exercises and poses. This text is an essential resource for any student embarking on a new yoga class or for those students who are already familiar with the practice of yoga. Yoga for the Joy of It! details of what to expect in class, what to wear and bring to class, correct yoga alignment, a solid foundation of yoga poses, how to modify each yoga pose, correct yoga breathing, beginning meditation, styles of yoga, a history of yoga, and how to bring the benefits of yoga practice into your daily life. Features: The Study Questions provided at the end of every chapter encourage learning. The Yoga Moment encourages experiential learning and brings the essence of yoga into the studentís daily life. The Student Testimonials provided in each chapter authentically reveal personal experiences that are relevant. A Historical Timeline featured in the history chapter (14) easily illuminates important yoga milestones. The worksheets included at the end of the text - a health history, flexibility assessment, alignment assessment, and yoga practice and nutrition logs - allow the teacher to assess the student, and the student to track his/her improvement. Yoga Science Boxes discuss some of the science topics connected to yoga. Chapters 6-13 provide descriptions of specific yoga poses (asanas), which include the following: Drishti, Alignment Cues, Benefits of the Pose, and Modifications for Making the Poses Work for You.
