The Mechanics of Yoga
How to improve your flexibility, strength,
and endurance while reducing your risk of injury.

Mechanics of Yoga

If you are healthy but struggle with
flexibility, strength or endurance

Or if you are injured, ill, or aging . . .

And you are looking to either begin
or to improve your yoga practice,
this extensive website might be for you!


Sam Dworkis I'm Sam Dworkis and I've been practicing and teaching yoga for nearly 40 years. I'm the author of three books: ExTension Yoga (Simon & Schuster), Recovery Yoga (Random House), and The Mechanics of Yoga, an e-book that is part of this unique website.

My latest book, The Mechanics of Yoga, is the main compoment of this website and incorporates aspects from both of my previous books; and yet, it goes well beyond both to explain the mechanics of how and why yoga works. Using logic developed from Neuro-Muscular Therapy, you'll learn how and why to adapt yoga to your own unique requirements rather than the more conventional way of trying to do yoga exercises the way most yoga books show, or the way a yoga teacher might instruct you, or even how you might think yoga poses should be done.

It doesn't matter what style of yoga you practice...
if you are healthy, ill, or injured ... or how old you are...

The Mechanics of Yoga explains how you can safely enhance your
flexibility, strength, and endurance, while at the same time,
reduce your risk of yoga and other exercise related injuries.

The Mechanics of Yoga is fully accessible on this website for a one-time $9 charge. Once you have paid, you will have full unlimited access to The Mechanics of Yoga and can print any chapter you wish. Also included in your charge is a user forum where you can interact directly with me and other readers. You also have access to videos where I demonstrate some of the unique remedial exercises I've developed through the years.

Is This Yoga Website Right For You?

If you are a normally healthy person:
Containing excerpts from my first book, ExTension Yoga, by experimenting with its techniques and logic, this website has the potential of allowing you to enhance your flexibility, strength, and endurance; not by working harder, but by working less hard. Its techniques are also designed to reduce your risk of injury.

If you are chronically ill, currently injured, or aging;
or if you have old nagging injuries:

This website also contains excerpts from my second book, Recovery Yoga, and shares with you additional concepts and logic designed to help you feel better, and hopefully to facilitate healing. Expanding upon the logic and techniques developed from ExTension Yoga and Recovery Yoga, The Mechanics of Yoga explains how you can feel better; not by working harder but but by working smarter.

Money Back Guarantee

Several years after I wrote ExTension Yoga and Recovery Yoga, I began developing my third book, The Mechanics of Yoga. I discovered that my students progressed faster and safer when they understood the techniques and logic behind our approach to yoga, and it took ten years to develop this content. Originally, access to The Mechanics of Yoga was free; but amazingly, most people who accessed the website didn't take it seriously until we started charging for it. It still amazes us, but ... !

If you feel you have not received value for your money, simply email us and we will promptly refund your $9 in full with no questions asked. Because you have a 100 percent money-back guarantee, you have nothing to lose … and potentially … you have much to gain.
