Yoga Off the Mat – Sarasvati Sally Dawson

Yoga Off the Mat

You don’t have to spend all of your time on the Yoga mat to find freedom through Yoga. How can you find enlightenment? Especially in modern times with the mental stimulation your mind deals with every day? Sarasvati explores the ancient wisdom from Patanjali’s ‘Yoga Sutras’ as applied to your everyday modern life. She shares stories and exercises and invites you to discover the way your mind creates its idea of itself. Whether or not you have heard of Patanjali and the ‘eight limbs’, you will find they are not just a set of rules to live by. They are inner and outer explorations that move you towards experiencing freedom. What is freedom? It is an inner state that Sarasvati calls ‘coming home to yourself’. She describes a robust, independent state where you recognize that your source of joy is internal, and not reliant on situations or other people. Your daily life, here and now, is the perfect practice ground. This state of freedom is your birthright. Whether you are a student of Yoga, a Yoga teacher or completely new to Yoga, this book is the perfect companion to your practice on the mat.
