Richard Rosen: "Original Yoga: Rediscovering Traditional Practices of Hatha Yoga"

When: Wed., Aug. 8, 7:30 p.m. 2012

Beginners be warned: Don’t try this at home. Richard Rosen’s new book, Original Yoga: Rediscovering Traditional Practices of Hatha Yoga, is replete with history, philosophy, and yogic best-practices drawing from ancient manuals to provide the modern practitioner helpful hints on movement, breathing techniques, and holding poses. Some of the more challenging poses require a teacher present, which Rosen makes sure to note. It’s traditional yoga for the nontraditional, modern Westerner. Rosen appears at Pegasus Books Downtown (2349 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley) on Wednesday, Aug. 8. 7:30 p.m., free. 510-649-1320 or PegasusBookstore.com
