Yoga and Ayurveda is mandatory reading on our Level 2 teacher training course because it is just such a good book!
This book introduces the different types of energy (such as the five pranas), subtle bodies (koshas), energy centres and pathways (chakras and nadis), energetic nectars (ojas and soma) and discusses the Ayurvedic view on diets, healing, herbs, yoga postures and meditation.
Knowledge and experience are the two feet that carry you forward
This books gives you the language to describe the subtle aspects of yoga. Knowledge of these subtleties makes them easier to experience and allows you to make finer and finer distinctions.
In the same way, the colour red comes in many shades and knowing the names of these shades allows you to be clearer in your understanding and more precise in your expression.
