Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

There are some classic images in Yoga, the illusion of a rope as a snake, for instance, and the metaphor of the chariot as one's body. In addition to these tidbits, Georg Feuerstein offers readers a light, palatable smorgasbord of traditional Yoga teachings from the distant and not-so-distant past. Most are translated by Feuerstein himself and touch on such themes as liberation, meditation, the human body, bliss of the self, and service to others. It is easy to get bogged down in primary-source readers of this type, but Feuerstein's selections are short and easy to digest. If you think you might be hungry for more, Teachings of Yoga is an excellent jumping off point.

Review

"Georg Feuerstein has done us a great service in sifting through the yoga classics and putting together a volume of short pieces that are inspiring and clear even to readers just beginning their forays into yogic philosophy. Here are teachings from the Upanishads, Mirabi's love songs to Krishna, insights on attaining joy from the Mahabharata, and words of wisdom from masters like Ramana Maharshi, Gopi Krishna, Swami Vivekananda, and Gandhi. It is a wonderful introduction to a vastly rich tradition."— Yoga Journal

Teachings of Yoga always sells on our yoga center's bookstore. Often, people choose this book as a gift because of the short sayings translated by Dr. Feuerstein. The sayings are inspiring and easy reading. By reading these teachings, you will be lead further to study some of the great yoga practitioners.
