Wendy Haring, Chair of the British Wheel of Yoga Education committee
This book is a veritable cornucopia, horn of plenty, literally, of all things yoga, packed into a relatively small book of 300 pages. It is an easy read, and one which will be much appreciated by serious practitioners, student teachers, teachers and teacher trainers. Above all it is practical and Wendy links many asanas to the philosophy in such a way that it enhances and deepens the practice and adds light to the understanding of the text. There is a huge variety of practices, some of which will most probably be new to many, and thus gives the reader more new asana to explore with fresh eyes ... It was an absolute pleasure to read this book (which incidentally I did in two and a half days!) and I would highly recommend it to all.
This is a lovely, accessible book by the deeply knowledgeable and experienced Wendy Teasdill. The different philosophical traditions are brought to life through the author's insights and engaging turn of phrase with poses and how they relate to the discussion interspersed throughout. I shall definitely be referring back to this text frequently to inform and inspire my teaching and practice.
