About the Authors
Lisa Schwartz is an advanced yoga practitioner who has studied and taught for over twenty-five years, many of them in association with two of the world's greatest contemporary figures in Yoga: B.KS. Iyengar in India and Vanda Scaravelli in Europe.
Like many, Lisa began her study with books and was inspired to take up serious practice after reading Iyengar's modern classic "Light on Yoga" in the early 1970's, which eventually drew her to study with him in person. More recently, Lisa has worked with Vanda Scarvelli, well known in Europe as a teacher and author of "Awakening the Spine". Lisa has adapted the teachings of Iyengar and Scaravelli to suit the needs of North American students.
Keith Dalton is an award winning writer and television director. This book is his second as co-author on issues related to well being. He has been a student of Yoga in the past, but it was while working with Lisa Schwartz on the television series "Stretch Alive" that he was introduced to the specifics of practice in detail. He also brings a broad range of skills, related interests and an understanding developed through years of applying various approaches to bodywork both professionally and personally.
