Intelligent Yoga

Listening to the Body’s Innate Wisdom

by

In Intelligent Yoga, Peter Blackaby describes his humanistic approach to yoga, firmly rooted in the here and now and underpinned by scientific research. In this second edition, he seeks to distance himself further from the biomechanical view of the body, revealing instead his more integrative perspective, focused on the neurological basis for movement and on the relationships between things. Rather than approaching yoga as an exercise system, it is seen here as a tool for self-exploration.  


By paying attention to our bodily responses, we are more able to react appropriately and are less likely to meet discomfort and pain in life. As we become better at this, life slowly takes an easier turn. We learn to act usefully, and sooner rather than later. We age more gracefully, and we adapt to change with less rancor. 

With fully revised theory chapters, a new chapter on chronic pain - based on the latest fascinating research - and completely re-designed practice sections, Intelligent Yoga: Listening to the Body's Innate Wisdom is a must for all teachers and students of yoga, and anyone with an interest in the human body. Peter Blackaby is an internationally known yoga teacher based in Brighton, UK, where he runs Unit 4 Yoga & Natural Health Centre.
