9780615708409: Extra Love: The Art of Hands-On Assists - The Definitive Manual for Yoga Teachers, Assistants and Advanced Students, Volume Two

No doubt about it:  Yoga is a cultural phenomenon, and it's here to stay!  A safe and sustainable practice is more important than ever, given Yoga's growing popularity, a remarkably diverse student base, new teachers joining the ranks and increased awareness about injuries.  As lifelong students, we are looking for tips to get the most out of our time on the mat.  Likewise, teachers are looking for useful and practical resources to build their confidence and technical skills, and take their teaching to the next level.

EXTRA LOVE: Volume 2 -- covering Standing Poses, Back Bends and Sun Salutations -- is part of a two-volume set first released at the Yoga Alliance National Leadership Conference in 2011.  Selling out at their conference debuts, the books went on to receive widespread praise from teachers and students everywhere.  Readers and teachers from all Yoga traditions have praised the book's simplicity, clarity and immediate usefulness/practicality in the classroom.    Both books offer:

  • Alignment tips to keep your practice safe
  • Technical guidance on the many ways to support and assist students
  • What to look for - to optimize alignment, enhance energy flow and ensure safety 
  • Recommendations for assisting popular poses, with review of the most common mis-alignments
  • Color photos to enhance your understanding
  • Ethics/safety considerations 
  • Resources to take you further
EXTRA LOVE: Volume 1  -- Hips, Twists and Forward Bends -- joined Amazon in November 2011.

From the Author:

Dear Readers,
At the time I was working towards self-publishing the first volume of Extra Love in 2010, there was only one other book on yoga adjustments on the market, Stephanie Pappa's Yoga Postures Adjustments and Assisting.  I dutifully ordered it on Amazon, read it carefully and admired the author for her effort to articulate -- in simple words and pictures -- what is really a multi-dimensional art form.    
 
Several more books came out since then, notably Yoga Assists by my own teachers Sharon Gannon and David Life of Jivamukti Yoga, a beautiful book interweaving technique with the spiritual teachings of the famous Buddhist sage, Master Shantideva.  Mark Stevens, author of a well-reviewed book on yoga sequencing, recently published a large volume called Yoga Adjustments.
 
Why mention other books? All paths lead up the mountain.  You should know there are many resources out there, all with a slightly different slant on the same topic, and they're all wonderful.
 
"Extra Love" was born in San Francisco, where the expression refers to compassionate and skilled touch, teacher to student.  Its first printings took place at a mom and pop print shop owned by a Chinese family out on Bayshore Avenue.  I didn't have an agent or publisher, then or now, as I simply wanted to create a resource for the teachers and students I was directly training.   A "leave behind." Before long, I switched to a print on demand format to keep up with demand.  Yoga's growing popularity, the explosion in teacher training programs and desire for continuing education eventually converged.
 
The book was, and still is, meant to serve as a manual to accompany in-person workshops and trainings. It's very difficult to master this teaching skill from a book -- a bit like learning the entire craft of massage therapy via a correspondence course, with no contact hours.  The best way to learn the art of assisting is - in fact -- in person - through tactile, group and partner exercises, up-close examination of hands on technique, drills in assisting sequences of poses with the right sense of rhythm and touch, and someone who knows what they're doing coaching you along. Not to mention, the profound bonding experience that takes place in such a group dynamic.
 
The books are slim, to-the-point, divided up in easily digestible categories of poses.  You can easily carry them to and from the studio where you teach, practice and show off your stuff to your friends.   The 2 volumes will guide you further if you've already learned in person, i.e., they're excellent reference manuals, rather than "textbooks." To the reviewers who commented books are too short, this is the reason why. 
 
Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu - May all beings be happy and free.   May we all contribute from our own hearts.
