About the Author:

Jennie Lee is a Yoga Therapist who has shared the healing benefits of classical yoga and meditation with hundreds of clients over the past 17 years. By using the practices she writes about in True Yoga, she has helped people conquer  anxiety, depression, grief, post-traumatic stress, attention issues, and challenging relationship dynamics. An expert in the field of Yoga Therapy, Lee personally relies upon the principles of the Yoga Sutras to navigate times of trial and to remain happy regardless. She is a regular contributor to the Huffington Post, Mind Body Green, Yoga Therapy Today, Yoga Digest, Yogapedia, Gaia, and more. Her coaching is available by phone and Skype, or in person on the island of O'ahu where she surfs, hikes, and lives with her husband and teenage son.

Review:

"In this work (Lee) does for the Sutras what Coleman Barks’ translations did for Rumi. She gives these ancient writings an up-to-date rendering that makes them exciting and relevant to our times...In the introduction to True Yoga, Jennie Lee asks the question: “What if, no matter what was happening in your life, good or bad, you could answer, Yes! I am happy! Your first response might be, Well, that would be wonderful, but it’s impossible”. In the Epilogue you will find Jennie Lee’s very moving personal story about caring for her mother at the end of her life. Her story may inspire you to weave the threads of the yoga sutras into your own rare and beautiful life. In doing so you just might discover how something that sounds impossible at first, truly is possible." ~LifeForce Yoga Research Newsletter Review

"By drawing on real-world trials and tribulations, Lee brings the Sutras to life. She explores how they might help with the tedium of sitting in traffic; the sensory overload from too much time on the Internet; the breakup of a marriage; or the stress and tension of raising a family while working full time.
Each chapter begins with a translation of the Sutra and then delves into an explanation of how it applies to normal, modern, everyday life....
The significance of love as the driving force of yoga philosophy is a theme Lee continually returns to. She invokes it often, as in the chapter on ahimsa (peacefulness) - “Love and calmness are stronger than anger;” satya (truthfulness) - “Whatever is anchored in love is truth and we can always trust truth when it is based in love;” and aparigraha (appreciation) - “As we magnify the love in our hearts through the perspective of abundance, we receive the benevolence of life and the understanding of our greatest sense of purpose.” The last page of the book contains her strongest claim regarding love: “There is nothing greater than love. It is the Essence of who we all are.”
...It’s easy to glean from Lee’s heartfelt description of each Sutra that she has gone beyond mere study of the Sutras to actually incorporate them into her life, and her commentary seems to spring from this.” ~ Yoga U Online Review



"Full of thought-provoking questions and suggestions, (True Yoga) can be incorporated into a daily self-reflection exercise...The book is also an ideal long-term reference that can be reread often; as life experiences continue and evolve, the questions and suggestions will take on new meaning and offer fresh guidance. Lee's advice is supportive and will interest those who already practice the physical aspects of yoga but are seeking deeper understanding of the philosophical and spiritual elements. It will also be useful to newcomers to yoga, providing a strong foundation for the connections between mind, body, and spirit." ~ Foreword Reviews

A wonderfully fresh, practical and down-to-earth guide to applying the sage wisdom of the Yoga Sutras to contemporary everyday life.  Even if you have several translations of the Yoga Sutras this book offers a unique perspective and deserves a place in your Yoga library. 
 ~ Donna Farhi, author of Bringing Yoga to Life
 
True Yoga outlines the grandeur of this path we call Yoga, and how it encompasses and refines our inner and outer lives.  It is a real gift.  ~ Nischala Joy Devi, author of Healing Path of Yoga and The Secret Power of Yoga

True Yoga is an amazingly comprehensive book of life, each section crafted with clarity, humility, and love. Almost everywhere we go we see the outward physical manifestation of yoga. What we don't see are its universal inner qualities, which hold meaning for us all. Jennie Lee has made this often-misunderstood practice remarkably accessible. This is a brilliant, life-affirming work. ~ Graham Salisbury, award winning author of Under the Blood Red Sun

With True Yoga Jennie Lee interprets the ancient wisdom of yoga philosophy for a modern Western audience with clarity and simplicity to joyfully and meaningfully apply its power to cope with life's stresses as well as enjoy its rewards. Her inspirational writing uplifts the heart, body and soul. ~ Sydney Solis, author of Storytime Yoga

Jennie Lee's True Yoga reminds us that what we need to be happy isn't outside of us, but rather an essential part of who we are. The questions she asks are provocative and if answered honestly, will lead to beautiful breakthroughs. This is a book you will want to pick up again and again. ~ Suzanne Dubus, CEO Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center, award winning expert on domestic violence

Jennie Lee has poured her heart into this interpretation of the Yoga Sutras, and grounded the teachings in a living practice that supports a happy, free, and wise life. ~ Kelly Birch, Editor of Yoga Therapy Today Magazine of the International Association of Yoga Therapists
 

An accessible introduction to Patanjali's Eight Limbs of Yoga, with examples and exercises that show how these 2,500 year-old writings are relevant to modern life....a great supplement to technical translations of the Sutras. ~ Janet Stone, founder Janet Stone Yoga

This beautiful, wise, and exceedingly practical guide on how to live our true yoga is destined to be a classic. -Leza Lowitz, author of Yoga Poems, Yoga Heart, and Here Comes The Sun.

A beautifully written translation and commentary rooted in compassion, in which we too can see ourselves reflected.-Amy Weintraub, founder of the LifeForce Yoga Healing Institute and author of Yoga for Depression and Yoga Skills for Therapists
