Description

This book, containing over 500 pictures, will appeal to every level of yoga enthusiast, as it integrates the philosophy of yoga with our daily practice. Through a systematic and simple approach, it helps us see how yoga can be put into action. The book will particularly interest the inquisitive mind that is searching to discover these timeless truths in modern day lifestyles. It will indeed help us to begin learning, learning through yoga.

This book is intended for the one who, with a beginner’s mind, asks the question, What is Yoga? It is addressed to a young mind that can see with freshness, a mind that can comprehend without having to analyse.

It is an attempt to recreate the ambience of this ancient practice.

It is not an attempt to give a complete idea of yoga. It does, however, try to give an idea of its many facets.

It is written with a deep feeling that technological man is building a world that lacks poetry and warmth.

It is structured on the idea that yoga comprises practice, self-enquiry and he wisdom of ancient teachers. It is based on what I have learnt from Shri Desikachar.
