A must-have for anyone who practises yoga or is interested in the teachings of the East.
B.K.S. Iyengar, whose teachings on yoga are followed throughout the world, reflects upon his lifetime’s experience on the yoga path. The structure of the book follows the different aspects of that path (from Freedom Awaits, through The Physical Body, The Energy Body, The Mental Body, The Intellectual Body, The Divine Body to Living in Freedom) and provides a learning framework for yoga as well as an invaluable discourse on life.
