In 30-Minute Yoga, certified yoga instructor Viveka Blom Nygren demonstrates how to do a half-hour Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga session in your own home so that you can achieve focus and calm on a more regular basis. With full-color photographs of yoga positions to help guide you through your home workout, Nygren explains what it means to practice yoga and how to breathe correctly, then walks readers through various yoga movements--basic positions, forward bends, relaxation poses--and closes with an exploration of how to make your yoga practice truly individual for you, through mantras and meditation.
