YOGA ""I can think of no better book to recommend to a friend beginning to be excited by yoga but bewildered by the plethora of different schools and their sometimes-­conflicting teachings. In addition, I would be hard-­pressed to think of a book I would recommend more highly to any yoga student seeking to deepen a yoga practice . . . The great gift of The Heart of Yoga lies not simply in the depth of Desikachar's learning, but in the compassion, gentleness, practicality, and down-­to-­earth spirit that permeate the book.­"" --­Yoga Journal ""Read this book from cover to cover and you will begin to understand what yoga is all about.­"" --­The Sunday Times ""Those who are interested in understanding what yoga is about, those who are looking for a larger context and focus for their hatha practice, those who look to the Yoga Su-­tra for guidance, and all those who have loved and benefited from Krishnamacharya and/or Desikachar, directly or indirectly, will want this book.­"" --­Yoga . . .

The koshas are a model of the five layers, or aspects of the human. Similar to "body, mind and spirit", this way of looking at the person divides this idea into five rather than three: body, energy, emotions, wisdom and spirit. Recovering from addictions is difficult: behaviors as hard as substances to overcome. The 12 Step programs give us tools that no other modality provides. The physical is overlooked in that program, however, once the addictive process has been addressed. Yoga reaches out to take up the recovery process. In addition yoga has philosophy and tools to enhance and reframe recovery teachings and can help maintain recovery; in fact may help prevent relapse. Read this step by step book to get a deeper understanding of this facet of yoga: the koshas, and see how the yoga therapy tools can help the quality of your recovery.

People laughed at the image of pretzel-­legged yogis focusing on the tip of their noses- until Swami Rama walked into a laboratory and showed scientists what a yogi with control over his respiration can actually do. Before astonished researchers, he demonstrated perfect control over his heart rate and brain waves- control physiologists hadnt believed humans could possibly achieve.
For thousands of years, yogic adepts have claimed that breath is the essential link between body and mind, energizing a subtle body which connects the physical and mental aspects of our being. In this landmark book, Swami Rama and two noted American physicians explore the science of breath as the missing key to both physical health and the attainment of higher states of consciousness. Basic yogic breathing techniques are explained so that we can immediately begin working with this powerful ancient science.
