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 psYchospiritual 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 readers clear, insightful yoga, pranayama, and meditation exercises that apply these body-mind principles.

This book in a nutshell explains what yoga is and how it works, followed by an outline of its history and how it was developed in the East and adopted and adapted in the West. The book describes health and how it is measured since a few medical books have their own definition of health saturated and described in the Western context. It verifies how most people fail to define and measure their own state of health since they only think that they are unhealthy when something is wrong which has been influenced by what they have been socialised to think through the Western biomedical system. This book takes a moment to compare and contrast the Eastern definition opposed to the Western point of view. Furthermore, it defines health in terms of energy systems. Chapter four focuses on energy and recharging to maintain balance and free-flowing quality and good volume for the state of health. Finally, the last two chapters discuss how yoga relates with other body energy systems and how yoga and energy therapies relate to everyday life. At the end of the book, there is a series of exercises which you can do to activate and cultivate your own energy and level of existence. If yoga is new to you, I hope that this book will inspire you to find spice in your life and begin to practice, if you are already a practitioner I hope it will expand your frame of reference and take your works further.
