Almost six thousand years old, Yoga is the world’s oldest form of physical and spiritual exercise. Its new popularity as a stress reducer, and as a form of physical fitness, does not illuminate the heart of the practice. The word “yoga” means union, and the goal is the complete integration of body, breath, mind, heart, and spirit.
The Spiritual Teachings of Yoga accessibly explains the radical philosophy behind yoga. These new, highly readable, versions of three important texts--the Bhagavad Gita, the Yoga Sutras and the Upanishads--provide a key to our self-awareness. By finding this inner truth we are able to develop confidence and strength, tranquillity and serenity, and to realise our limitless potential for happiness.
This book will enable you to add new depth and meaning to your practice, accessing the full potential and power of yoga to transform your life.
