This book has tons of great tips and information to get the most from practicing true yoga (and meditation). I have listened to this book multiple times and I am sure I'll listen to it again in the future.

Those of us who practice Yoga know the Yoga wisdom, but I guess there many of us who do not ingrate it into our daily practice. This is a good book if you are interested in yoga at all ...more

Georg A. Feuerstein was an Indologist and, according to his associate Ken Wilber, among the foremost Westerns scholar-practitioners of yoga. After doing his postgraduate research at Durham University in England, he moved to the United States, eventually settling in Canada with his wife and sometime co-author Brenda.
