Everything a modern yogi needs in one reference.
on September 4, 2015
The integration of eastern and western principles has been simmering in the melting pot of yoga the past hundred years. A key moment in the progress of yoga is Jivamukti Yoga in the East Village of Manhattan in the early 1990's. The torch has been passed and the next generation is ready to carry the light forward.
This volume is both a practical guide with visual reference, diagrams and images of yoga sequencing, as well as a theoretical statement about the aims and means of yoga. It could be used as a source text for a general study of yoga in a scholastic or university program as well as a modern vocational yoga teacher training. The book is also a personal journey to honor three great Indian gurus and includes practical advice on how or why to choose a yoga teacher.
Although I am biased as a 20+ year practitioner of Jivamukti and a 10+ year teacher, I stand by my objectivity in assessing this volume to be the best overall guide to yoga available today.
