The world?s most venerated yoga teacher sheds light on life through the prism of yoga ?Yoga allows you to achieve a sense of wholeness in your life, where you do not feel like you are constantly trying to fit the broken pieces together. Yoga allows you to find and inner peace that is not ruffled and riled by the endless stresses and struggles of life. Yoga allows you to find a new kind of freedom that you may not have known existed.? Here, B. K. S. Iyengar, founder of the style of yoga teaching known as Iyengar yoga, invites both those new to yoga and those who are experienced practitioners on an inward journey designed to increase their physical stability, emotional vitality, mental clarity, intellectual wisdom and spiritual bliss. In this warm, witty, lucid and helpful book he addresses the role that yoga postures and breathing techniques play in our search for wholeness, the external and internal obstacles that keep us from progressing along the path, and how yoga can help us life in harmony with the world around us. He uses stories from his own life, humour and examples from modern culture to illustrate that the awareness that yoga offers can improve our lives in many practical and profound ways.
