What Other Are Saying....
"With yoga much in vogue these days, the prolific Walters, a longtime teacher and disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda and founder of Ananda Village, offers an ambitious package of instruction in the discipline. Intended as a 14-week home-study course, the book's 14 chapters cover teaching, postures and routines, meditation and breathing techniques, health and healing topics and diet. It's tough to do a good yoga book, because a number of variables have to converge: substantive integrity, clarity in how-to explanations and quality visuals.
The book contains fourteen lessons in which the original yoga science emerges in all of its glory-a proven system for realizing one's spiritual destiny. This is the most comprehensive course on yoga and meditation available today, giving you a profound and intimate understanding of how to apply these age-old teachings, on a practical, as well as spiritual, day-to-day level in
this modern age.
About the Author:
Swami Kriyananda (J. Donald Walters) is widely
considered one of the world's foremost experts on yoga, meditation, and
spiritual practice. He is the author of more than 80 books that have sold over
2.5 million copies worldwide and which have been translated into 24 languages.
He was educated at Haverford College and Brown University.
"The author has brilliantly portrayed the essence of age-old yoga doctrine."
- Inner Strength, July-Aug, 2003
"By those measures, this book succeeds. Walters' long teaching record shows
his ability to discuss key yogic concepts and practices in simple terms. B&W
photos illustrate form, and each explanation includes a helpful statement of the
benefits of each pose. This comprehensive guide has an extra medium to
distinguish it on the crowded yoga bookshelf: an accompanying audio CD that
contains a vague lecture as well as more helpful sections of guided meditation
and posture instruction. All things considered, it's superior to books that
reduce yoga to a series of physical exercises taught by this year's
guru." - Publishers Weekly
