Our yoga book study group is a fun place online to dig into a book mindfully, carefully and completely. It is an environment designed to support peaceful, deep study and heartfelt connection. We meet twice a month, 8–9:00 pm, and move through our books at a leisurely pace. As a group, we broaden our understanding of the ideas in the books we read and are often inspired to apply our new understandings to our lives. Sometimes we surprise ourselves and each other with unexpected, positive results
Yoga’s popularity is soaring, but its widespread acceptance as an exercise for physical fitness and the recognition of its health benefits have not been matched by an understanding of the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual development that the yogic tradition can also offer.
In Light on Life, B.K.S. Iyengar brings readers this new and more complete understanding of the yogic journey. He explores the yogic goal to integrate the different parts of the self (body, emotions, mind, and soul), the role that the yoga postures and breathing techniques play in our search for wholeness, the external and internal obstacles that keep us from progressing along the path, and how yoga can transform our lives and help us to live in harmony with the world around us.
Iyengar uses stories from his own life, humor, and examples from modern culture to illustrate the profound gifts that yoga offers. Written with the depth of this sage’s great wisdom, Light on Life is the culmination of a master’s spiritual genius, a treasured companion to his seminal Light on Yoga.
