Sensational yoga ebooks
Improve your body awareness and control while doing yoga
These Sensational Yoga ebooks and videos are designed to help you learn your body while focusing on specific actions or parts of the body.
The ebooks listed below are organized in a suggested viewing order.
The poses and routines may be quite similar, however the focus in each package is slightly different with the intent of helping you learn a variety of techniques for controlling and experiencing your body.
All ebooks are in pdf, epub and mobi formats (you get all three formats with a single purchase) unless otherwise specified. Also, check out these ebook bundles (at the bottom of this page).
The ebook Balance Basics explains balance in easy to digest chapters with simple yoga poses used as examples. Rather than accepting balance as something that you just practice while your body takes care of the details, balance is explained as something that you can understand and feel and consciously work towards.
Balance Basics ebook
Yoga Basics 1 focuses on simple pushing exercises to help you get a feel for how parts of your body react when not stabilized.
You'll learn how to work with minimal effort based on the above idea.
One reason for these exercises is that they help you to learn how to feel changes in the relationship between parts of your body. But they also help you to learn to feel the muscular actions that cause those changes in relationship.
Another benefit to these exercises is instead of thinking about whether or not you are doing the exercises correctly, you can focus on feeling your body as you do the exercises.
Yoga Basics 1 ebook

It not only teaches you how to stabilize your body but also helps you to become more body aware and gives you simple mental cues for better control of your body.
Yoga Basics 2 ebook
Rather than just learning how to stretch and strengthen your shoulders, yoga for your shoulders includes simple instructions (and exercises) for learning to feel your shoulder blades (as well as your neck and ribcage). This then makes it easier to stretch and strengthen said body parts.
Yoga for shoulders ebook
The hip control guide is designed to help you feel and control the deeper "single joint" muscles of the hip joint. Rather than teaching you rules, it helps you to improve awareness and control of your hip muscles so that you can decide for yourself how to use them.
Repeating each of the muscle activations in a set sequence of poses you'll see how some muscle activations are effective in some poses and not in others. You'll then have a better idea of not only how to control your hip joints but also how you can explore other parts of your body.
Hip control Guide ebook
Even if you have no desire to do wheel pose, (It is a pose that people love to hate, or, they simply hate it!) Working Towards Wheel Pose (Basic Body Awareness Exercises to Make Difficult Poses Easier) is useful because it demonstrates a basic methodology for approaching difficult or challenging poses.
In the process, it teaches you some basic body awareness and muscle control for the spine, pelvis, hips and shoulder blades and it shows you how you can use the ground to create a reaction within your body.
