This book should be translated into as many languages as possible. Some comments on a first read and practice of self-adjustments: 1/ top quality production and design (unusual binding but it feels like it will last) 2/ clear and precise writing with abundant and excellent photographs. 3/ will be beneficial to anyone training or teaching within any of the yoga schools and traditions which are hatha yoga based. Congratulations to Brian (and everyone who helped) on a great achievement. Namaste, Paul --Paul: Yoga teacher - Ireland
I am honoured to write the foreword for Yoga: The Art of Adjusting. The detailed art of adjusting Yoga postures has been accomplished in this book in a loving and practical format. It also comes at a fortuitous moment. With the rapid increase of Yoga teachers all over the globe during the last few years, greater understanding of the art of adjusting has been missing in the printed form. I think Brian Cooper has done an excellent job of covering the key points of adjusting most of the postures of the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga. He clearly explains the main focus of each posture, the direction to take with each posture and eventually how to learn to do each posture unaided without an adjustment. The visual aspects of each posture are conveyed precisely in a step-by-step format giving the reader practical insight into the wonderful art of touch. Enjoy! --Foreword by Matthew Sweeney
At last...the illustrated art of adjusting asana! Every teacher I know wants to refine their hands-on adjustments; and every student I know is keen to be adjusted. Comprised of over 200 pages illustrated with hundreds of photos, this hardcover, spiral-bound manual is the answer to a teacher's need for teaching methods, and a student's plea for help in deepening their practice. The manual discusses types of adjustments ("passive," "resistance," "active," "partner," "self-adjustment"), the mechanics of adjusting, and detailed instructions for surya namaskara, 12 standing poses, and more than 20 other asanas. The layout features a description of key alignment tips and other important features for each pose, plus common mis-alignments. It also illustrates and simply describes various adjustments in easy-to-read detail. Bonus chapters on partner yoga and Thai massage are natural outgrowths of the hands-on assists. You'll want a space on your bookshelf for Yoga: The Art of Adjusting. --Sandra Anderson - Yoga + Joyful Living magazine
