America's leading expert on yoga for active people, Sage Rountree, shares her approach to practicing yoga every day in this colorful, lay-flat guide to yoga poses and routines.
Flexibility, balance, whole-body strength, recovery, range of motion, focus--a regular yoga practice brings many benefits to people who lead active lives. For athletes in particular, the dynamic stretching of athlete-friendly yoga poses and properly designed yoga exercises can counteract the tightness and imbalances that come from daily workouts.
In Everyday Yoga, certified coach and registered yoga teacher Sage Rountree shares the yoga positions and exercises she has developed in her own yoga studio, at Kripalu, and working with active people during her popular yoga clinics around the country. She guides experienced yoga practitioners and yoga beginners on the best ways to design and develop their own at-home yoga routines.
