More and more people who find the stress of modern living overwhelming are turning to Yoga to help them live a better and more balanced life.
Based on the teachings of Patanjali, who over 1,500 years ago formulated ancient oriental traditions into a system of study and practice, Yoga is a holistic science of well–being that looks within for its healing.
In this comprehensive and invaluable guide to spiritual Self-realization through the system of Ashtanga Yoga (also known as Raja Yoga), Stephen Sturgess takes the reader step by step through the main aspects of Yoga – asana, pranayama, concentration and meditation. It also includes a guide to the inner universe of the subtle bodies, the Chakras and Patanjali’s Eight Limbs of Yoga.
Written in a clear and simple way, it is an invaluable reference book on Yoga and is sure to appeal to all those who seek spiritual advice and a balance of mind and spirit, whether they be novices or advanced students.
