The Inner Tradition of Yoga

“Intense, poetic, wise, practical, intimate, and visionary—the mind-body connection has never been better explored or explained.”
—Sharon Gannon, cofounder of Jivamukti Yoga

Michael Stone provides an in-depth explanation of ancient Indian yogic philosophy along with teachings on how to bring our understanding of yoga theory to deeper levels through our practice on the mat—and through our relationships with others.
