Overview

In the early 1970s, when yoga was new to the West, I followed a programme on television called “Yoga with Richard Hittleman.” Over the weeks, I was drawn to want to know more about why I was beginning to feel so much better, both physically and spiritually.

I trained under many different teachers and was taught many different styles, from which I devised my own yoga routines that I have been teaching for forty years.

My yoga classes over the years have been a haven for people living in this fast-paced city of London, an oasis from which they can leave refreshed, bright-eyed, and ready to face the challenges of modern-day life.

This book comprehensively covers all aspects of yoga, from the physical, which helps a person become stronger and more centred, to the philosophical and mental states of understanding that yoga helps bring about.

The Beauty of Yoga in Life delves into the origins of yoga and how it has developed over the centuries, as well as spurring mental faculties through the mind/body benefits.

Since 2,000 years before Christ, yoga has been used in India and perfected by others to strengthen and bring health to both mind and body. The word yoga means yoke, a yoking together and a bringing of harmony to oneself, especially useful in today’s stressed populations.

The spiritual understanding of yoga is explained and how all paths of yoga lead not only to self-improvement but to spirituality.
