Ancient Wisdom : Following the Yoga of the Heart – Jenny Beeken

Ancient Wisdom : Following the Yoga of the Heart

The asanas or postures of yoga have been found so beneficial as to make yoga virtually mainstream in British and American culture. Yet traditionally they are just one part of a much larger scheme of teaching leading the consciousness of the bliss of non-separateness. Yoga, after all, means union. Jenny Beeken is an internationally-known yoga teacher with a particular sensitivity and intuition. For her, the ‘Eight Limbs’, as the philosophy of yoga is known, offer the perfect path as well as one of the oldest on the planet. They instruct the student in meditation and they offer an ethical system based on ideas such as non-possessiveness, living with enthusiasm, self-study and contentment. Jenny compares the ancient wisdom of yoga with that of modern spiritual teachers and finds remarkable similarities as well as relevance for today. This is a book that will deepen the understanding of any yoga student and be a useful introduction for anyone who wishes to see yoga in its wider context.
