Knoff Yoga is a dynamic style of Hatha Yoga combining anatomical alignment principles with energetic techniques – a comprehensive approach for unifying Western science and Eastern wisdom.
One of the aims of Knoff Yoga is to lift the level of education about the practice of Yoga. When practiced correctly, Yoga is a powerful tool for health and well-being, but this implies you know what you are doing, i.e. skilfulness in the command of the fundamentals.
Knowing what you are doing allows you to be more efficient, effective and obtain more benefit. It allows you to practice with a laser focus, which increases your capacity in life to concentrate and maximise your use of both physical and mental energy.
This book was written as a primary tool for yoga teachers, but it is equally useful for serious students. Each Asana is presented in specific point-by-point detail – how to get into the pose, how to hold the pose and how to exit the pose, including timing and number of breaths.
The Knoff Yoga Asana Series is based on 5 linked levels: Discovery, Foundation, Intermediate, Advanced and Master. These levels
are designed to take you from a beginner all the way to a master practitioner (with great skill and proficiency).
This book contains the Knoff Yoga Foundation Asana syllabus. While it is the second level in the Knoff Yoga system, most of these postures are considered to be at an intermediate or even advanced level in the majority of public yoga classes.
This book will give you the confidence to personally execute the postures and to share the syllabus with others – confidence based on understanding, particularly when combined with the Knoff Yoga 24 Principles of Practice.
Knoff Yoga is ideal for the Western mind-set of wanting to know ‘why’ as it is soundly based in science while honouring the traditions of the East. Knoff Yoga is also idea for teaching because you are fully supported with systems designed to educate and progress students in a logical and systematic manner.
