The world's leading teacher of yoga shows how we can transform ourselves by bringing yogic principles into all aspects of daily living.B.K.S. Iyengar, hailed as "the Michelangelo of yoga" (BBC) and considered by many to be the most important living yoga master, has spent much of his life introducing the modern world to the ancient practice of yoga. Yoga's popularity is soaring, but its widespread acceptance as an exercise for physical fitness and the recognition of its health benefits have not been matched by an understanding of the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual development that the yogic tradition can also offer. In Light on Life, B.K.S. Iyengar explains this new and more complete understanding of the yogic journey.
Here Iyengar explores the yogic goal to integrate the different parts of the self (body, emotions, mind, and soul); the role that the yoga postures and breathing techniques play in our search for wholeness; the external and internal obstacles that keep us from progressing along the path; and how yoga can transform our lives and help us to live in harmony with the world around us. For the first time, Iyengar uses stories from his own life, humor, and examples from modern culture to illustrate the profound gifts that yoga offers. Written with the depth of this sage's great wisdom, Light on Life is the culmination of a master's spiritual genius, a treasured companion to his seminal Light on Yoga.
"Highly recommended for those advanced on the path and interested in learning from a master of flexibility and wisdom." (Publishers Weekly)

beautiful wise words
I loved the way it was structured. From the start to end you are building your knowledge and learning so so much. He uses fantastic metaphors that bring his ideas into the modern world & make them simple to grasp.
When he speaks about his late wife. He said that his soul loved her soul. They way he speaks about her warmed my heart and really demonstrated how these teachings lead one to live a life that I am at a loss of words to describe but still aspire to.
No I have not. I did not really like her voice at the start but by the end I found it very soothing.
No, I listened to it in the car on my 1 hr commute. I actually listened to it chapter by chapter, often re-listening to half of a chapter before moving on.
This is a fantastic book, I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in moving in a holistic direction in life.
