Yoga Self Taught

For those of us who crave very specific instruction on yoga postures and breathing, Yoga Self Taught by André van Lysebeth (1919–2004) is a valuable book.

In the sixties, Belgium born Lysebeth spent two months with Pattabhi Jois learning the primary and intermediate asanas of the Ashtanga Yoga system, and then wrote a book called J’apprends le Yoga in 1967. (English title: Yoga Self-Taught). The book was well received and it marked the beginning of westerners going to a yoga mecca, Mysore in India, to study yoga.

I recommend studying the book from cover to cover. If you want to read some or all of it online, or print it out section by section check out this link to an eBook version.

Yoga Novels #2

I said I’d get back to you on this topic… I enjoyed the final two books of the Mantra for Murder Mysteries, making it 4 for 4!

Book 1, the first one that caught my eye

I still haven’t read any of the other yoga novels I listed in the previous post, but am sure I’ll find the time at some point.
