Yoga For Everyone
Yoga is for everyone. You need not be an expert or at the peak of physical fitness to practice the asanas described in Yoga for Everyone. The strain of modern life can lead to physical pain and illness, as we neglect our bodies in the race for material success. The stress of modern life can also lead to mental suffering; feelings of inadequacy, isolation, or powerlessness.
Also, it helps to integrate the mental & physical plane, bringing about a sense of inner and outer balance, or what I term alignment.
True alignment means that the inner mind reaches every cell and fiber of the body.
This book is specially designed to focus on techniques so that even the beginner will have a thorough understanding of how to practice yoga asanas in order to obtain the maximum benefit.

Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
“Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras is the bible of yoga… To practice yoga without the profound and panoramic inner cartography of the Yoga Sutras is to be adrift in a difficult and potentially dangerous ocean. To use that map without the compass of Iyengar’s deep and authoritative experience is to handicap oneself unnecessarily.
No yoga practitioner should be without this classic and invaluable work.”
Godfrey Devereux, author of Dynamic Yoga The Yoga Sütras of Patanjali is a collection of 196 aphorisms, each one concerning an aspect of the path to enlightenment through yoga. Acclaimed as one of the most profound and enlightening studies of human nature and the search for spiritual liberation, the Sutras were compiled over 2,000 years ago.

“Yoga is a friend to those who embrace it sincerely and totally. It lifts its practitioners from the clutches of pain and sorrow and enables them to live fully, taking a delight in life. The practice of yoga helps the lazy body to become active and vibrant.
It transforms the mind making it harmonious. Yoga helps to keep one’s body and mind in tune with the essence, the soul so that all three are blended into one.”
