Bob Insley, Yoga traveller, teacher and trainer
This book sets the student right at its heart; it's about the learner, not the tutor. It enthuses on art, creating, balancing, simplicity and guiding with the learner at its centre. The use of myth (a la) Joseph Cambell was a golden moment for me. This is a book that will grace any yoga tutors library.
Tiffany Edmunds, British School of Yoga Trainee Yoga Teacher
I was beautifully surprised by some of the topics and chapters, the blantantly spirited detail and descriptions given by the individual authors had me hooked and the different perspectives of the most simplest thoughts took my yogi journal to a whole new level...this handbook is an absolute must for any aspiring teacher or trainee who wants to 'get the dirt' without having to ask every Yoga teacher they meet for their do's and don'ts.
