After an illustrious lifetime of expounding yogic wisdom to the eager masses, it only seems fitting that B.K.S. Iyengar, the undisputed heavyweight champion of the modern-day yoga bible, turns his gaze toward yoga’s foundational philosophical text, the Yoga Sutras. In Core of the Yoga Sutras, Mr. Iyengar provides unique commentary on Patanjali’s 196 aphorisms that only someone with his experience and authority can bring to the work.
B.K.S. Iyengar′s insight on the sutras show us how we can transform ourselves through the practice of yoga, gradually developing the mind, body and emotions, so we can become spiritually evolved…or something like that All jest aside, this is a wonderful introduction to the spiritual philosophy that is the foundation of yoga practice.
This week we’re excited to be giving away a copy of Core of the Yoga Sutras, courtesy of Harper Collins!
