Review

The very first yoga postures were done as an exploration of the human body when put in certain positions. Without books, these first explorers had to rely on what was happening internally as they imitated trees, cows, and other stances of being. In Embodied Posture, Stacy has not only given us guidelines for understanding anatomy, alignment, and function. She has also given each of us permission to return to this original exploratory spirit of yoga. –Deborah Adele, Author of The Yamas & Niyamas: Exploring Yoga’s Ethical Practice

Books, videos and podcasts for yoga students and teachers abound, but Stacy Dockins s Embodied Posture stands out. Well grounded in science, particularly human anatomy, and deeply rooted in the spiritual goals of yoga practice, Stacy uses scientific understanding to drive students to a mastery of the asanas that is healthful and spiritually fulfilling. Especially useful are the many kinesthetic cues which help instructors connect understanding to feelings and sensations and which allow a student to correct a posture by self-adjusting until it feels right. Illuminating, practical, and accessible, Embodied Posture is a unique resource that makes a satisfying yoga practice easier to achieve. –Dr. Peter Roland, Emeritus Professor of Head and Neck Surgery, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center

The mark of a great teacher is someone who can take an intangible concept and break it down into tangible, accessible, and concrete learning opportunities, while still allowing the student space and freedom to learn intuitively and have their own unique experience. Stacy has been this kind of teacher for me and my entire team. She has taught us how to practice this way and how to deliver this kind of experience to our yoga students. Stacy isn t afraid to ask why or try something new, and she encourages her students to do the same. She has a deep desire to learn, recognizing there is never just one way to do something. I would recommend Stacy s book to anyone looking to deepen their relationship with their yoga practice and, in turn, with themselves. This book is a must on any yoga teacher s reference shelf or teacher training reading list. –Mandy Roush, Founder and Teacher, Root Down Yoga Studio
