Reading Challenge: The Path of Yoga

If you want to read a concise but complete (and honest) book about the philosophy and practice of yoga, The Path of Yoga by Georg Feuerstein is the book for you.

The thing I like most about this book does not flinch away from traditions that others leave out, such as tantra yoga, and the more bodily aspects of purification. The sections are detailed-but not so detailed as to be upsetting.

However, the material dealings of yoga are not the focus of this book. It is a well rounded, informative, and enjoyable read on the spiritual, physical, and philosophic aspects of yoga.

To me, it should be required reading for any aspiring yoga teacher.

Next week, I’ll review The Heart of Yoga by  T. K. V. Desikachar!
