Threads of Yoga: Themes, Reflections, and Meditations To Weave Into Your Practice supports those seeking to learn more about yoga’s deeper spiritual teachings. Yoga draws many practitioners because of its physical benefits, but it is often the experience of peace that people return for. Each short chapter introduces a foundational yogic theme, such as letting go, the breath, the yamas and the niyamas, and the chakra system. Each theme is accompanied by practices, including meditation, complementary poses, breath work, or quotes to contemplate. It is an ideal guide for both practitioners and teachers who want to connect with the spiritual wisdom of yoga, deepen their personal practice, or develop and support a theme for yoga class. Threads of Yoga helps teachers to bring yogic themes and wisdom into the typical, all-level yoga class. For yoga practitioners, Threads of Yoga brings deeper wisdom into their home practice. The book provides specific themes along with instructions on how to skillfully incorporate yogic philosophy into a class setting. While beginning yoga students are often drawn to the practice for its physical benefits, it is the recognition and experience of peace that keeps students coming back. Threads of Yoga provides a resource for instructors to assist 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. For yoga practitioners, this book provides the deeper wisdom they seek that is often not covered in a class setting.
