Yoga is the oldest, most complete system of personal development in the world. It encompasses body, mind, and spirit. Aimed at both the beginner and advanced student, Yoga explores the benefits of this ancient art across many different contexts, from the banks of the Ganges to the New York City office cubicle. Khanna offers a comprehensive introduction to the history and philosophy of yoga, describing the asanas (postures) in conjunction with pranayama (controlled breathing techniques) and meditation.
Demonstrating both basic and complex positions, the author also leads the reader off the mat, offering advice on how one may deepen relationships with self, family, friends, colleagues, and the environment. Inspiring and practical, Khanna blends her heartfelt knowledge of an ancient tradition with her life experiences as a yoga practitioner and teacher. The result is a new yoga that beckons the reader to find the spiritual in everyday life.
