Stimulates thoughts and expands awareness of the philosophical dimensions of yoga in its many forms and practices

Yoga - Philosophy for Everyone presents a wide array of perspectives by people whose lives have been touched by yoga. Addressing myriad aspects of yoga's divergent paths, topics include body image for men and women; the religious and spiritual aspects of yoga; and issues relating to ethics, personal growth, and the teaching of yoga. Written by philosophers and non-philosophers alike, with contributions from professional yoga instructors, lifelong practitioners, and first-timers, Yoga - Philosophy for Everyone offers a wealth of material for both enjoyment and deep reflection.
