Following widespread praise for Volume 1 (Hips, Twists and Forward Bends), comes Extra Love: the Art of Hands-on Assists ($35.00). In this new book, bi-coastal yoga
teacher and author Jill Abelson taps into the cultural phenomenon that
is yoga, crafting an accessible and richly illustrated resource. The power of touch – our first sense developed by birth – is now gaining
more attention in the yoga community. Drawing from multiple yoga
styles, the book illustrates alignment tips essential for today’s
popular poses, and shows how confident and compassionate hands-on
support can help us practice smarter, safer, and more sustainably. The
book’s insightful detail, technical nuances, and humor will appeal to
yoga enthusiasts and professional teachers, alike.
The event at Book Passage is preceded by a workshop on Sept. 21 (1:00pm) at Yoga Tree, Corte Madera. For more information about Jill's workshop, visit here.
