This chunky, richly colorful volume takes yoga "beyond the mat" to reveal classic yogic wisdom pertaining to the mind,emotions, spirit, and of course, the body. Drawing from such classical texts as the Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads, as well as modern Indian and Western teachers, this treasure trove of yoga knowledge defines key terms and highlights important themes. It's also a helpful supplement to yoga classes, offering asanas, meditations, breathingexercises, mantras, and mudras for every occasion and skill level. Just the right size to pop into a yoga bag, here's a guide to the practical and philosophical aspects of yoga that complements any spiritual practice.

Love this little treasure. Picked it up for my birthday and haven't been able to put it down since. Short, sweet nuggets of wisdom covering all aspects of yoga life. Fully referenced, insightful quotes, beautiful artwork. Includes asana suggestions, chakra balancing, pranayama, meditation, yamas & niyama discussions. Liz has done an amazing job with this beautiful book. I will definitely use it with my students for our daily reflection.

Well, it took me long enough to get through. This was something I had to take a long time to digest and one I will be returning to often. Very nice introduction to deepening one's yoga practice and understanding the principals. Read full review
