Summary

A must-have for anyone who practises yoga or is interested in the teachings of the East.

B.K.S. Iyengar, whose teachings on yoga are followed throughout the world, reflects upon his lifetime's experience on the yoga path. The structure of the book follows the different aspects of that path (from Freedom Awaits, through The Physical Body, The Energy Body, The Mental Body, The Intellectual Body, and The Divine Body, to Living in Freedom) and provides a learning framework for yoga as well as an invaluable discourse on life.  

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our Desktop Site.

Critic reviews

"Iyengar knows what the body needs, and he's introduced to the West the Easterner's best path to health and well-being." (TIME Magazine)

"Revelations from a lifetime of studying yoga." (The Washington Post)

"Light on Life is rich in yoga philosophy and methodology. But unlike his previous writings, this new book is full of autobiographical anecdotes." (The New York Times)

A book for life

Some reviewers said this book was a bit on the heavy side. I found it informative and transformational. It is a book to listen to more than once however. A wonderful listen while lulling yourself to sleep (set your timer)
