Yoga for Surfing is a visual, instructional guide designed to walk readers through approximately thirty-five yoga poses that are effective in stretching the muscles that surfers use most, and strengthening the muscles that they use least. The book includes chapters on anatomy and alignment principles specific to the movements of paddling for surfers, and includes tips on proper surfing technique, performance focus, relaxation, and short stories about surfing injuries healed via yoga. One to three photos demonstrate each pose, with clear, concise text on how to get into and hold the poses.
