The Path of Yoga: An Essential Guide to Its Principles and Practices – Georg Feuerstein
“Whether you are a student of yoga or would like to become more familiar with this ancient Indian tradition, you will find this an easy-to-read guidebook that is based on authentic writings and experiences of some of India’s great yogis.”–“Booklist”
“Certainly a staple of any well-rounded yoga collection.”–“Library Journal”
“Feuerstein’s guide is an important pointer in the right direction that should also help readers understand the astonishingly sophisticated system that has emerged from a 5,000-year-old Indian spiritual tradition.”–“Publishers Weekly”
“This is a classic book for every Yoga enthusiast, whether neophyte or seasoned practitioner.”
“This was one of my first philosophical books on Yoga, and it gave me a strikingly clear and accessible doorway into the historically rich interwoven layers of this diverse path. Each time I reread it, I am delighted to find new insights and connections that I had missed before”-Sarah Powers, author of “Insight Yoga”
This overview of the essentials of Yoga is meant to both broaden and deepen the understanding of beginning students. It covers all the basic elements of this ancient discipline and philosophy of India–including Yoga poses, diet, breath control, meditation, mantras, Kundalini energy, and more. It also includes newly translated excerpts from the scriptures and pays special attention to branches of Yoga, such as Tantra, that are of great interest to Western students but are frequently misunderstood.
