This review is from: The Spiritual Teachings of Yoga (Paperback)
Book and accompanying CD
Jo Manuel is the founder of The Special Yoga Centre and Mark Forstater is a writer and film, television and radio producer. Among his credits is the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail - one never knew there was a link between Patanjali and the knights who say "Ni!"
Having just completed the BWY Foundation Course I really wish I had this a year ago. This comprehensive, explanatory book and CD gives the yoga student a thorough grounding in the Yoga Classics (Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads).
It reflects a lot of the course's syllabus, taking the reader from the aim of yoga, its path, asanas, pranayama, meditation and spirituality to a conversation with God in short, easy to navigate chapters. It presents an introduction to the texts and their key stance in the history of yoga, with modern-day references and stories which engage the reader.
Either book or CD provide an excellent guide to yoga but I would strongly recommend buying both, particularly if you are about to embark on the Foundation Course.
