Description

Yoga and Ayurveda together form a complete approach for optimal health. Vitality and higher awareness. Yoga and Ayurveda reveals to us the secret powers of the body, breath, senses, mind and charkas. More importantly it unfolds transformational methods to work on them through diet, herbs, asana, pranayam and meditation.

This is the first book published in the West on these two extraordinary subjects and their interface. It has the power to change the lives of those who read and apply it.

REVIEWS

Once again, Dr David Frawley demonstrates his ability to make timeless wisdom relevant for the modern person. His new book illustrates why I consider David to be a true Rishi-a knower of reality. Yoga and Ayurveda should be in the library of every serious student of Yoga and Vedic knowledge.
-Dr Deepark Chopra

Yoga and Ayurveda impels, guides and teaches us how to connect our earthly physicality with our soulful aspirations, in the process teaching us the inner art of controlling our subtle energies. Hinduism today endorses Yoga and Ayurveda and knows that it will further the on-going Hindu renaissance by virtue of the lucid, well-explained teachings that it contains.
-Hinduism Today

Through a skillful exploration of the inner dimensions of these two great sister sciences, Dr David Frawley has performed a wonderful service to anyone seeking to restore wholeness in body, mind and spirit.
-Pandit Rajmani Tigunait
Spiritual Director of the Himalayan Institute
