Hello my loves,
I have very wonderful news! HarperCollins and I are giving one of you a copy of BKS Iyengar’s most recent (released today! January 29th) book, Core of the Yoga Sutras: The Definitive Guide to the Philosophy of Yoga.
According to HarperCollins:
Iyengar has devoted his life to the practice and study of yoga. It was Iyengar’s unique teaching style, bringing precision and clarity to the practice, as well as a mindset of “Yoga for all,” that has made it into a worldwide phenomenon. Iyengar, who turned 94 in December last year, and calls this his “last major work in this lifetime.”
In Core of the Yoga Sutras, he applies the philosophical core of yoga–the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. These are 196 aphorisms forming the foundational text of yoga philosophy. Each sutra is presented as Sanskrit text, transliteration and English translation, followed by Iyengar’s unique commentary and authority only he can bring to the work.
I cannot tell you how working with the Sutras has changed me– though you probably have some idea if you have ever listened to one of my podcasts or attended a live class with me. I think that contemplation of the Sutras is a natural (and necessary) step on the path of yoga and it thrills me to no end to give one of you a copy of Core of the Yoga Sutras: The Definitive Guide to the Philosophy of Yoga by BKS Iyengar.
To enter to win a copy of this book, leave a comment below. Though it is not necessary, I would love for you to share your experience with the Yoga Sutras. Sign up by 5pm PST, Friday, February 1, 2013. A winner will be drawn at random at that time and notified by email.
