9781590305690: The Inner Tradition of Yoga: A Guide to Yoga Philosophy for the Contemporary Practitioner

There is more to the tradition of yoga than toning and strengthening. At the root, there is a vast and intriguing philosophy that teaches the ethics of nonviolence, patience, honesty, and respect. Michael Stone provides an in-depth explanation of ancient Indian yogic philosophy along with teachings on how to bring our understanding of yoga theory to deeper levels through our practice on the mat—and through our relationships with others.

"Intense, poetic, wise, practical, intimate, and visionary—the mind-body connection has never been better explored or explained."—Sharon Gannon, cofounder of Jivamukti Yoga
