TBQ, “Patanjali’s Yoga: Meditation, Breathing, Modern Yoga” (2016)

patanjali_Cover“Patanjali’s Yoga – Meditation, Breathing, Modern Yoga” should be part of every Yoga student’s library.

As students of yoga progress in their physical practice, so too should they come to comprehend the spiritual sources of yoga breathing techniques and poses.

This book contains textual contents (some modern, some written 1,500 years ago), a glossary, and an index. Its main purpose is to allow the reader to broaden their understanding of the Yoga Sutras and how they are related to modern yoga practices. These sutras may be the inspiration for those who later created the various yoga asanas and related practices, so that they, too, might join in spiritual union with the Eternal. Of course, you may use this book to study each sutra academically as a religious philosophy.
See below for the table of contents.
– Namaste!
