A few Ashtanga books out there for you
We all have a copy of David Swenson’s book on Ashtanga, right?
Well, there are a couple more you could add to your shelf, if you want.
The second got a press release on Monday. Here’s part of the release:
Beverly Hills, CA, January 30, 2012 – “Ashtanga Yoga” by Caroline Klebl is an inspirational guide to the practice of the Primary and Intermediate Series of Ashtanga Yoga. This book includes detailed descriptions of the practice and photographs of over 125 Yoga postures. “Ashtanga Yoga” by Caroline Klebl is an indispensable addition to every Yoga practitioner’s collection of Yoga books. This book includes instruction in the practice of the Sun Salutations, standing postures, seated postures, forward bends, twists, back bends and inversions. This book also describes the precise order in which these yoga asanas are to be practiced, so that the postures can be practiced safely and effectively and every practitioner can attain to the practice of 100’s of yoga postures and experience the health benefits and psychological benefits of practicing yoga postures.
(I have to note the dateline, since I’m writing from Beverly Hills, myself.)
Her website is here, which includes purchase information.
As best as I can tell, her book isn’t new — just seems like the press release is.
I also have to admit to not knowing much, well anything, about Klebl. (I don’t see her listed on the “official” list at the Ashtanga Yoga Institute.) See also has a DVD.
Anyone familiar with this? While Jason’s book seems to be blazing its own trail, Klebl’s sounds to be in the vein of Swenson’s. Swenson’s remains the “default” as far as I know. Maybe someone can throw in a word here? Is this a resource we should be adding?
Are there other Ashtanga resources, for that matter, that you think are “required”?
