Everyone knows that The Yoga Sutra is the ultimate source of all yoga. What you might not realize is that this ancient book also contains all the secrets you need to know in order to heal both your body and your heart; to over-come any kind of illness or unhappiness; and to reach a place of splendid health, strength, and peace.
The secrets of how yoga really works to make us truly whole are revealed here in a delightful story based on how these precious teachings reached Tibet from their home in India over a thousand years ago. The authors have spent many years in Tibetan monasteries, trained by some of the last great Lamas of Old Tibet to read and practice the original ancient manuscripts on how yoga works.
