Yoga American Style by Prem Prakash
Rate this book
Clear rating
If you think that yoga is just about exercise, I recommend this book. It is an excellent synthesis of the spiritual value of yoga. It is about love, compassion, service, peace, vitality, and many other enriching things.

This is not the edition I read and taught in the Brontë seminar at Cal State Long Beach. I read and used the Norton Critical Edition, edited by Richard Dunn, but this edition apparently is not available via Goodreads for some queer reason. I loved "J ...more
