Yoga Animals: 32 Poses from the Wild by Emily Sharratt

Yoga Animals: 32 Poses from the Wild

Written by yoga instructor Emily Sharratt and featuring incredible artwork from artist Jade Mosinski, alongside step-by-step instructions for each pose, this is an essential manual and celebration of yoga. As every yoga practitioner knows, many of the key asanas (or poses) and breath exercises are inspired by the animal kingdom. From camels to cobras, and from lizards to lions, so many animals have loaned their characteristics and shape as well as their name to the practice of yoga. Whether you're channeling the flamboyance of a peacock or the pride and power of an eagle, you are part of an old and beautiful tradition, and one that is practiced all over the world. The format of the book follows the template of a full, well-rounded yoga session, incorporating stretching, strengthening, energizing and calming elements, while drawing on a number of different yoga styles, from vinyasa flows to more static Yin poses.Yoga Animals is a beautiful collection of poses based in the natural world, which will show you how to embrace this within each yoga session. Perfect for: • Gift for yoga enthusiasts • Yoga practitioners looking to learn about the origins of the poses • Readers who appreciate beautiful artwork • Animal lovers

Emily Sharratt is an editor, writer and qualified yoga instructor. She has been teaching for over seven years, as well as having a regular practice for almost twenty. Her teaching method encompasses a range of yoga styles, from vinyasa flow to yin, and she considers the final relaxation the most important part of a class.

Emily's favorite yoga animal pose is eka pada rajakapotasana (one-legged king pigeon), but she also enjoys working on her eka pada galavasana (flying pigeon) and pincha mayurasana (feathered peacock). Emily lives in London with her daughter, whose favorite yoga pose is a three-legged downward dog-headstand hybrid of her own invention. 

Cassandra’s Review-
Taking time out of a super busy day, especially for single moms can be a real treat. This book provides great easier techniques that are explained so that anyone who is learning can find more information while visibly checking the poses to see if it’s being done correctly. Each animal has a little added bit of tips.
