Themes, Reflections, and Meditations to Weave into Your Practice

Deepen and invigorate your yoga practice with yogic themes based on ancient wisdom designed to inspire you on and off the mat.
Yoga draws many practitioners because of its physical benefits--from exercise to stress relief--but it is the recognition and experience of peace that keeps people returning to yoga and turning the focus of their practice from the physical to the spiritual. For those seeking deeper spiritual teachings, Threads of Yoga brings yoga philosophy from the ashram to your mat.
Threads of Yoga is broken up into short chapters that introduce practitioners to 30 foundational yogic themes, such as letting go, the breath, the yamas and the niyamas, and the chakra system. Each theme is accompanied by practices, which might include a meditation, complementary poses, breath work, or quotes to contemplate. It is an ideal guide to deepen personal practice or to assist teachers in what is often the most difficult aspect of building an excellent yoga class: developing a theme and then supporting that motif throughout the class. Drawing on over twenty years of experience as a yoga teacher and practitioner, Pamela Seelig offers a much-needed resource for yoga practitioners and teachers who want to connect with and share the spiritual wisdom of yoga.
