Have just started going to a yoga class again after birth of DD (now 8 months). Prior to her birth I had done some yoga in pregnancy & about a terms worth of classes pre-pregnancy. I am interested in reading that provides practical instruction that would help me establish some simple daily practice but am also very much interested to learn more about the history/philosophy/spirituality behind it all. Suggestions please.
I love Yoga Mind and Body from the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre. It´s very strong on the different postures, great photos, physical and mental benefits of each posture, etc.
Also have a great DVD: Jayne Middlemiss - Love Yoga, also only 5 quid on Amazon. The yogi is great, brilliant descriptions of what to do so not reliant so much on watching him (or her). 2 levels, c 1 hr each, great for nap time! It has kept me really fit!
