Just as yoga found me when I was ready, so has Mark Whitwells book, "YOGA OF HEART". I ordered it a while back, and have tried to pick it up a few times but could never quite get into it. Well, apparently I just wasn't ready. Yesterday, I was ready. All of this time on the road, in the passenger seat, with no distractions has given me lots of time to thinks. Miles upon miles to ponder. And now this book-- I'm drinking it up like a tall glass of water on a hot day. I was first introduced to Mark Whitwell a few years back at a yoga conference in Delaware. Laura Warfs classes and workshops LITERALLY changed my life-- they are what inspired me to become devoted to my yoga practice, and to share this passion with others by becoming a teacher. Warf has studied extensively with New Zealand-born Whitwell, and it's under his influence that she's formed her practice. Whitwell is a student of TKV Desikachar, son of Krishnamacharya. I could ramble on and on about how this book has already had a deep impact on myself and my view of "yoga" - but I'll save those rambles for my upcoming yoga classes- and I encourage you, whether you are a yogi or not, to pick up and enjoy this magnificent, compassionate and easy to digest book about God, Truth, Self and...Yoga.
"yoga is the mere participation in the wonder of Life as it is already perfectly Given."
