Publisher's Summary

It is estimated that more than 20 million Americans have practiced some form of yoga, yet almost none of them have heard of yoga's early teachers or their insights. While we are familiar with yoga's physical benefits, the original purpose of yoga as a path to inner freedom and enlightenment is embodied by only a few students in the West. Handed down to us throughout the past 5,000 years, the mental and spiritual disciplines of this complete philosophy for living are in danger of vanishing forever.
Now yoga scholar Georg Feuerstein immerses you in The Lost Teachings of Yoga, the first comprehensive audio curriculum about yoga's original spiritual wisdom and practices. A leading scholar and practitioner of yoga in the West for more than 30 years, Feuerstein introduces you to the wonders beyond yoga's postures and breathing techniques, and points the way to the inner strength and mental peace that is yoga's first objective. Taught by Feuerstein himself, this full 12-session, seven-hour course reveals the true history of yoga, the gifted masters who brought it to the West, its many branches and the rich fruit they yield, yoga's virtues and disciplines that flower into enlightenment, subtle anatomy and the energy of prana or life force, the origins of asanas, and much more. Georg Feuerstein has said that today in the West, we need yoga more than ever. Not simply because we want to develop strong, flexible bodies, but because yoga's vast spiritual heritage can help us uncover the deeper purpose of life. Discover for yourself yoga's ultimate achievement and your foundation for a more effective daily practice with The Lost Teachings of Yoga.

inspirational listening

I have just listened to this for the 3rd time, and I know it won't be the last. I love everything about this, the in depth knowledge, the delivery, the humble approach Georg has to his own place in life, his quiet humour. every time I listen I learn so much more and feel greatly inspired to improve my life and my practice.

if you want to really understand what yoga truly is, in a way that is accessible while being in depth and with real substance to it, you cannot ask for better

The conversational style of the narrator made this book very easy to listen to and enjoy!

An excellent explanation of "yoga" or should I say the mystical traditions of this religion !

A Comprehensive Insight into Yoga

It's the kind of book you are either inspired to study or dismiss as too complex and overwhelming...perhaps even farcical. Personally, I'll revisit with a notebook to hand but more importantly, I am now ready to stop scratching at the surface of yoga and instead, dive in.
