When you get the right balance in life, you can do amazing things: create, perform, lead a team, build a great company, raise a family. But so often the scales tip, and we feel overwhelmed and stressed. Michael Townsend Williams, an adman turned yoga teacher and mindfulness coach, is an advocate of 'welldoing' - leading a busy and productive life, but not at the expense of our health and well-being. And key to this? Our breath.

The Yoga Matrix, gave me great insights as to how the many aspects and paths of Yoga blend and overlap. Richards's ability to take a comprehensive subject and explain it in an easy to understand, humble and at times fun way makes this book a must for most, if not all with an interest to learn the origins and essence of Yoga. Being an audio book complemented the text, as the delivery and guidance makes it feel like 1:1 tuition. Thank you Richard
