With his expert teachings and philosophical insights, world-class yoga instructor Tias Little turns the anatomy of the physical body into a tool for navigating the subtle body.
Yoga of the Subtle Body unites practical somatic concepts and wisdom teachings in this guide to the anatomy of the physical, mental, emotional, and subtle bodies. Tias Little is a master teacher, and he brings his precise instruction to the wisdom teachings and philosophy of hatha yoga. He offers us a guided tour of the body's structure and physical anatomy, then uses this new structural awareness as grounds for exploring the subtle body. In a meaningful and pragmatic way, the book maps the connection between the body and the rich symbolism that pervades the yogic imagination, including the chakras, nadis, and koshas. We come to see how the body is not separate from the psychospiritual forces that animate it. Further, Tias offers readers clear, insightful yoga, pranayama, and meditation exercises that apply these body-mind principles. Essential reading for all serious students and teachers of yoga.
