        Yoga für alle Lebensstufen - in Bildern - Sivananda-Yoga-Zentrum

      YOGA für alle Lebensstufen - in Bildern Herausgegeben vom Sivananda-Yoga-Zentrum - (Swami Sivananda Saraswati war ein bekannter Yoga-Meister und Lehrer des Vedanta. Swami ist ein hinduistischer Ehrentitel und bedeutet Meister.Wikipedia ) Vorwort : Swami Vishnu Devananda Texte von Lucy Lidell mit Narayani u. Giris Rabinovitch Fotos von Fausto Dorelli Graefe Und Unzer VerlagMünchen - deutsche Erstausgabe 1985 Aus dem Inhalt : Einführung ins YOGA Die Grundstellungen -Die Atmung YOGA-Ernährung Meditation Asanas und Variationen Der Zyklus des Lebens - YOGA und Gesundheit - Anhang 191 Seiten farbig illustrierter Pappeinband gebunden Hardcover - zahlreiche Abbildungen 90 Fotografien und 250 Schritt- für Schritt- Zeichnungen mit Anleitungen Yoga für alle Lebensstufenist der Titel eines Buches, das 1983 erschien und 10 Jahre lang der Yoga Bestseller in Europa war. Yoga für alle Lebensstufen entstand durch die Initiative von Girish Rabinovitch im Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center London. Die bei Yoga Vidya so beliebte YogalehrerinNarayaniist das Hauptmodel für die meisten Fotos. Hier ein Auszug aus dem Buch Yoga für alle Lebensstufen, nämlich zum Lebenszyklus. Gerade die letzten Kapitel des Buches haben diesem Hatha Yoga Bestseller seinen Namen gegeben, und haben gerade im deutschsprachigen Raum dem Yoga Unterricht anKinder, Schwangere und Senioren entscheidende Impulse gegeben. Hier also der Abschnitt über den Zyklus des Lebens aus dem Buch "Yoga für alle Lebensstufen": Die Yoga-Disziplin begleitet uns durch das ganze Leben. Sie ist eine vielseitige und allumfassende Wissenschaft, die sich allen Lebensumständen und Bedingungen anpasst. Vielleicht fühlten Sie sich anfangs zu Yoga hingezogen, weil sie rank und schlank bleiben wollten als dann Veränderungen in Ihrem Leben eintraten, erkannten Sie den Wert der Atemübungen und der Meditation. In diesem Kapitel befassen wir uns mit Asanas und ihrer Anpassung an verschiedene Bedürfnisse des Lebens. Drei Lebensabschnitten schenken wir besondere Aufmerksamkeit: Mutterschaft, Kindheit und Alter. Doch selbst wenn Sie sich gegenwärtig in keinem dieser Stadien befinden, können Sie aus dem hier vorgelegten Material Ideen für Ihr eigenes Vorgehen gewinnen. Die Grundübungen bilden in jedem Fall die Basis für eine Asana-Folge. Die Klarheit des Geistes, die Yoga erzeugt, sowie die körperliche Lebenskraft und Geschmeidigkeit, die es bewirkt, sind für Jung und Alt gleichermaßen wichtig. Kindern bietet Yoga eine Möglichkeit, das ganze Leben gesund zu bleiben. Mit ihrer natürlichen Beweglichkeit und ihrem Sinn für Gleichgewicht gelingen ihnen die Asanas mühelos, so dass die Sitzungen sowohl erfreulich als auch belohnend sind. (YogaWiki)
