About the Author

Michael Bridge-Dickson has been guiding practitioners on their inner journeys since 2004. He has worked with athletes, dancers, seniors, people with reduced mobility, those with special concerns, as well as regular, everyday practitioners of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds. Michael's passion is helping people understand themselves - observing their patterns and habits, the mind revealing itself through the body. As a teacher, Michael uses his keen eye for detail and vision of how those details affect the overall practice over time to structure sequences that help practitioners navigate through their yoga path. Articulate and communicative, Michael strives to reach as many practitioners as possible, showing them how they can benefit from yoga's gifts safely and effectively while finding personal and physical fulfillment. His vision stretches beyond those Michael connects with in classes, inspiring him to delve into writing to share useful information that can reach all who would benefit from his approach. Michael combines his skills as a writer and illustrator to bring you his experience in a way that is clear and accessible so that you get the most out of your practice while integrating and applying helpful principles.

Michael Bridge-Dickson yoga@sensasana.com www.sensasana.com Carrie Owerko has been teaching yoga and exploring the relationship between body, breath, and mind for several years. She holds a Senior Intermediate Iyengar teaching credential, is a certified Yoga Therapist (IAYT), and continues her studies with the Iyengar family by traveling to India on a regular basis, as well as with continuous and in-depth studies with her yoga teacher, Patricia Walden. Over the years she has performed in and co-choreographed many yoga demonstrations, including Live: Light on Life, presented at City Center in NYC during BKS Iyengar's Light on Life US National Book Tour in 2005. Curiosity, openness, and affection are of the utmost importance in her approach to Iyengar Yoga, as is the integration of science, yoga philosophy, and the poetic imagination in the yoga practice. Most importantly, she loves to explore the relationship between discipline and playfulness and is a firm believer in the power of controlled folly.

Reviews

"The whole book is filled with intelligence and elegance. Michael has provided the type of practice explorations that will inspire students to look around their homes and apartments for inspiration and possibility, and begin to use what is readily available in their environment to make their practice more accessible, effective, and even therapeutic. Yoga: Point + Process is a unique and wonderful contribution to the diversity of yoga books available."

Carrie Owerko, senior Iyengar Yoga Teacher and contributor at Yoga Journal

"Occasionally a yoga book comes my way that makes me think, 'Gee, I wish I'd written this one.' Michael Bridge-Dickson's Yoga: Point + Process is definitely one of them. I like so many things about it I don't even know where to begin. What impressed me the most, and what makes this book so unique, is that it treats asana as a process, not a state, with equal emphasis on the beginning, middle, and end of the pose. This I'm sure will make the exercises much more effective and far less injury-prone. Experienced teacher or raw yoga rookie, no matter, this book's for you..."

Richard Rosen, contributing editor at Yoga Journal, and author of The Yoga of Breath, Pranayama: Beyond the Fundamentals, Original Yoga, and Yoga FAQ

"Michael Bridge-Dickson's Yoga: Point + Process is a dream come true for all yoga teachers and teacher trainees eager to dive into the nuances of yoga alignment. Michael's refusal to believe there's only one way to do a pose is refreshing; his use of props creative; and the exhaustive array of choices he provides for even the simplest poses will be a joy to explore in my own body and pass along to my students."

Linda Sparrowe, former editor-in-chief of Yoga International and author, most recently, of Yoga At Home

"There is always more to learn about yoga postural practices, and in Yoga: Point + Process, Michael Bridge-Dickson has given us a true gem. His insightful understanding of the nuances of asana is a boon to students and teachers alike. I highly recommend it, especially for new and experienced yoga teachers."

Mark Stephens, author, Yoga Therapy: Foundations, Methods and Practices for Common Ailments.

"Yoga: Point + Process is an invaluable resource for all postural Yoga practitioners. Michael's superb book is clearly written and insightful, and is sure to guide many to a deeper level of practice."

Brenda Feuerstein, Director of Traditional Yoga Studies and author of The Yoga-Sutras From a Woman's Perspective and co-author of The Matrix of Yoga and The Bhagavad- Gita: A Translation with Georg Feuerstein, Ph.D.
