Add more power to your yoga routine! Developed by Anthony Carillo when he was training for the "super bowl" of triathlons, the Ironman World Championship, the Iron Yoga method quickly became one of the hottest fitness routines on the East Coast, and Carillo's innovative approach was featured in Men's Journal, Yoga, Fitness, Men's Fitness, Elle, and on CNN.
The Iron Yoga full-body workout lets you reap the benefits of both yoga and weight training. While practicing over 25 of your favorite yoga asanas, you'll incorporate light to moderate dumbbells to work the arms, shoulders, chest, back, and core. Every exercise for the upper body is performed slowly in conjunction with the rhythmic flow of yoga breath, which provides a superior burn. Throughout the book, 125 photographs clearly demonstrate the proper form for each pose. The result is a body shaping, toning, and sculpting routine that increases lean muscle mass, fires up the metabolism, assists with weight management goals, increases flexibility and range of motion, sharpens concentration skills, and enhances proper breathing techniques--calming the body and reducing stress and tension. You can't find this completely original workout anywhere else.

Approximately 16 millions Americans now practice yoga on a regular basis. Devotees can't rave enough about this ancient art of meditation, breathing, and physical postures that calms the mind and slims the body.
Unlike fitness fads, yoga is worth the hype. The postures stretch and tone lean muscle mass and sculpt a strong and slender physique-burning up to 400 calories in a 90-minute session. But yoga does something even better. It's proven to reduce the biggest cause of weight gain-stress-which 43% of Americans say makes them overeat.

Yoga is more than just an exercise; it’s a way of spiritual living that has been growing in popularity throughout the years. But nothing ruins the tranquility of yoga faster than an unfortunate injury. Yoga focuses on almost every muscle in the body, from the core of the abdomen, to the muscles of the back, right down to the delicate muscles in the neck. All of these are prone to injury, and all of those injuries can keep you off the mat. That’s why every yogi needs Anatomy, Stretching & Training for Yoga. Amy Auman and Lisa Purcell provide expert advice on how to achieve perfect flexibility while minimizing injury, with tools and training on the following subjects:
• Finding the proper equipment: which mat works best for you
• Warm-up stretches and why they are important
• Corrective exercises to improve your balance and flexibility
• Step-by-step photos
• And much more!
Anatomy, Stretching & Training for Yoga details how to achieve each pose, or asana, and properly align your body to begin a daily routine that will provide you with a calm focus while improving your strength, flexibility, balance, and posture. A handy guide lets you know which muscles are the main targets of each asana, each asana’s benefits and cautions, and tips on perfecting your form. Here you’ll find all the information you need to help you avoid common injuries and become the best yogi you can be!
