M. Skip Rector has been practicing and teaching yoga and meditation for over twenty-five years. Through that time, he has developed highly effective techniques that promote physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Skip’s philosophy is simple, “Anyone can do Yoga. The key to getting the most benefit from this ancient practice is to go to your edge in each pose.” By going to this level, it creates the most benefit for you. In his classes, he stresses the importance of doing the positions correctly so as to obtain the most benefit.

This approach has proven very successful in his work with the thousands of students of all ages and ability levels who have studied with him including individuals who have physical and mental challenges. Doing Yoga with Skip is like a meditation in motion. Once you learn the poses, you move from one pose to another pose creating a gentle flow.

This 2nd Edition provides new and updated material on many aspects of Yoga and life. In the chapter on meditation, skip added a QR code to access a 30-minute meditation.
