Summary

With his expert teachings, philosophical insights, and pragmatic imagery, world-class yoga instructor Tias Little turns the anatomy of the physical body into a tool for navigating the subtle body.

If you spend considerable time doing yoga, you begin to see that it is about much more than just the body - the practice of yoga in fact reveals that the body is in no way separate from the pyschospiritual forces that animate it. Tias Little here provides a way to understand these forces as they relate to an integrated yoga of body, mind, and spirit. He unites somatic concepts and wisdom teachings in this practical guide to the anatomy of the physical, mental, emotional, and subtle (or energetic) body.

Little is a master teacher who offers us a guided tour of the body's structure and physical anatomy, then uses this new structural awareness as the basis for exploring the subtle body. In a meaningful and pragmatic way, the book maps the connection between the body and the rich symbolism that pervades the yogic imagination, including the chakras, nadis, and koshas. Further, Little offers listeners clear, insightful yoga, pranayama, and meditation exercises that apply these body-mind principles.

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

Dreadful vocal presentation

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Tiffany Morgan's voice is dreadful and detracted from my appreciating the content of the book. Far too much contrived inauthentic convoluted vocal twisting. I find the way in which the interesting text is distorted by the voice of the speaker detracts from appreciating and enjoying the book. It sounded like an actress at work rather than an honest investigation.

Extremely well put together book.

So much information. Will need to do this one a few more times. What a wonderful performance by the narrator.

the next level

The information and practices for accessing and nurturing the subtle body will forever change the way I practice and teach yoga. My only wish is that someday, Tias himself will read the book out loud, as his voice and presence would add so much to the teaching and instruction...

An important text on Yoga

Yoga of the subtle body by Tias Little is a rich and profound text on yoga practice and philosophy. In my humble opinion, this text is as important as the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. The author describes several important aspects of Chakras, Nadis, bandhas and Prana. Connects these concepts with the physiology of the gross and subtle body, and recommending a practice at the end of each topic. I purchased the Audible version and was so impressed that I purchased a paper copy as well. I would highly recommend this book to every yoga teacher and student who would like to move beyond their physical practice into the yoga of the subtle body.
