Threads of Yoga: Themes, Reflections, and Meditations To Weave Into Your Practice

Radiant Yoga
A  Guide for Students and Teachers Inspired by the Yoga Sutras
By Pamela Seelig
Threads of Yoga: Themes, Reflections, and Meditations To Weave Into Your Practice helps teachers to bring yogic themes and wisdom into the typical, all-level yoga class. 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.  For yoga practitioners, Threads of Yoga provides the deeper wisdom they seek that is often not covered in a class setting.

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. Classic themes and specific practices are provided in clear, easy-to-find chapters that can be used again and again. For the thousands of yoga instructors teaching throughout the United States, Threads of Yoga provides a useful and much-needed resource.
