Complete guide to Kripalu Yoga hits the shelves

Winter 2005

by Tresca Weinstein

Special discounts and pre-orders offered to KYTA members!

The only complete resource on Kripalu Yoga will be released by Bantam Books in December. Kripalu Yoga: A Guide to Practice On and Off the Mat, by Shobhan Richard Faulds and senior Kripalu teachers, offers a complete introduction to the lifestyle practices and energy techniques that make Kripalu Yoga a powerful catalyst for physical healing, psychological growth, and spiritual awakening. Along with user-friendly instructions for beginner and intermediate posture practice, the book offers a wealth of guidance and a wide array of exercises for yoga enthusiasts who wish to deepen their practice.

Clocking in at just over 400 pages, with 23 chapters, more than 375 photos and illustrations, and yoga poems by Danna Faulds, Kripalu Yoga brings yoga to life with stories and quotes from nearly 100 KYTA members.

"This is a community book, one that reflects our collective attempt to explore a contemporary yoga lifestyle," Shobhan says. "I wrote it to deepen my practice and contribute to the rich dialogue existing among Kripalu yogis. More than anything, I hope this book uplifts your practice and teaching in some way."

Available in bookstores across the nation on December 27, Kripalu Yoga can be pre-ordered through the Kripalu website for shipment on December 5. KYTA members save 20 percent off the $23 list price, for a discounted price of $18.40, and 30 percent off orders of five or more to resell to your students. (This special offer ends February 28, 2006.) All proceeds from the book benefit Kripalu Center.

Shobhan will direct a program with the same title, exploring Kripalu Yoga's comprehensive and distinctive approach, January 13 to 16, 2006, at Kripalu. Participants are invited to a launch party for the book on the Friday before the opening program session.
