“The experience of yoga practice, like any spiritual journey, involves a degree of mystery. But as this enlightening and delightful book makes clear, it doesn’t have to be that mysterious. In conversational prose, with thoughtful discussions of human nature, and inspiring explications of yoga teaching (including charming and clear illustrations) this user-friendly book demystifies the physical, psychological and spiritual rewards of the ancient form of enlightenment. There is much here for teachers, practitioners, and even casual students like me – my downward facing dog will never be the same.”
