New Yoga Book Offers "Motivational Lessons" for Lasting Lifestyle Changes
"Motivational Yoga: 100 Lessons for Strength, Energy, and Transformation" Empowers Yoga Teachers and Students
By: Creative Marketing Associates
Motivational Yoga encourages practitioners to move forward, be inquisitive, and discover their unlimited potential by going after the life they desire. "While asana is an excellent tool for holistic health and wellness," says Gerstein, "yoga's mental and spiritual benefits far outweigh the physical exercises that have become synonymous with the practice. The lessons in Motivational Yoga are created to help the practitioner lead others, communicate clearly, and foster creativity."
Fully customizable to meet individual teacher or student needs, the ready-to-use lessons save valuable practice and class preparation time. Most lessons offer a written script and follow a five-part format:
· The Intention provides the focus for the day's yoga class.
· The Lesson (script) embodies the essence of the day's teaching.
· The Asanas for Deepening section illustrates the lesson through body stretch, movement, and sensation.
· The Motivation Off the Mat section presents the wider application of the lesson for use in everyday life.
· Teacher Tips and Wise Words offer advice for fine-tuning sequences and proverbs that convey a specific thought or feeling for the lesson.
In addition, five full-length workshop lesson plans allow teachers to offer focused workshops.
"Nancy Gerstein helps us look more deeply within the physical postures, outlining the mental and spiritual benefits in accessible, relevant ways. Motivational Yoga is a perfect resource for us all, with inspiration and guidance for every level of practice," states Elena Brower, bestselling author of Practice You and Art of Attention.
