Inner stillness. Perfect awareness. True beauty. Yoga is much more than just a physical activity. It is a conscious lifestyle that brings about a profound spiritual and personal transformation. This book on yoga invites you to experience yoga as the ancient masters intended it-a holistic way of life that unites the body, mind, and spirit for complete health and well-being.

With clear instruction, Dr. Robert Butera guides you through ten steps on the path of yoga that are based on traditional yogic principles and practices, yet designed to fit seamlessly into your life. Yoga enthusiasts of all kinds will discover effective tools for creating a life of healthful beauty and inner peace.

  • Understand the role of physical poses within the larger, holistic system of yoga
  • Practice breathing techniques (pranayama), work with your energy centers (chakras), and develop your concentration
  • Overcome psychological blocks, balance your emotions, and grow emotionally and spiritually

Review:

"The Pure Heart of Yoga will bring increased depth to your yoga practice...It is an excellent book: thoughtful, reflective, deep, and accessible."―Eleanor Criswell, Ed.D., author of How Yoga Works

"That he's able to instruct and inspire with a warm heart and skillful direction, without judgment or prejudice about the "style" or your yoga of choice, is good reason to believe this book will bring life to your practice."―Yoga Journal

"An illuminating exploration of the psychological and spiritual dimensions of the yoga asanas. It is an important contribution to weaving the asanas into the eight-fold fabric of Hatha yoga."―Charles Eisenstein, author of The Yoga of Eating

"Butera's hard work and clarity about the subject are felt by us all. Yoga asanas ultimately lead to an expansion of consciousness. The psychophysical practice of yoga is the main focus."―Dr. Jayadeva and Hansaji Yogendra, directors of The Yoga Institute in Mumbai, India

"Butera's work with modern yoga techniques integrates asanas and hygiene, contemporary psychology and stress management, with ancient philosophy and spiritual truths to promote a broader and deeper understanding of the physical, emotional, and spiritual health that yoga offers the sincere student. As a teacher and a counselor, Butera is the teacher I have been waiting for!"―Caroline M. Thomas, LCSW and yoga teacher

"Butera is one of our strongest presenters-that is why he has been a core teacher in our year-long program and why he is one of our retreat leaders going on ten years strong. For depth, openness, and clarity, he is a good choice."―John Meyer, director of educational programs at Pendle Hill, Quaker Retreat Center
