About The Eight Limbs Of Yoga: A Handbook For Living Yoga

Product Description A clear, concise guidebook to the essentials of yogic thought and practice Many people think yoga simply means postures and breathing. Not true. The intention of this short guide is practical and straightforward: to say what yoga really is and to apply its principles to everyday life. It leads us through the eight-limbed system, a coherent framework that has been handed down and elaborated upon for thousands of years and consists of five "outer limbs," which pertain to our experience of the social world and the operation of our senses, and three "inner limbs," which focus on the mind. Stuart Ray Sarbacker and Kevin Kimple present the eight-limbed system as something that can be turned to again and again to deepen and expand understanding and practice. As an introduction and overview to the essence of yoga, The Eight Limbs of Yoga is unparalleled for clarity, usefulness, and concision. Review   "I don't think you will find a better guidebook to understanding the essence of yogic philosophy, as well as the practical tools to progress on this path. Have a highlighter handy--every sentence is a concise, profound gem. Read it slowly. Practice. And read it again." -Swami Asokananda, President, Integral Yoga Institute, New York   "One of the best beginner's guides to yoga that I have seen; succinct and easy to read, but authentic to the tradition." -Edwin F. Bryant, Professor of Hinduism, Rutgers University, Author of  The Yoga Sūtras of Patañjali: A New Edition, Translation, and Commentary   "Lucid and grounding. I recommend  The Eight Limbs of Yoga to anyone who wishes to deepen his or her understanding of yoga philosophy and practice." -Stefanie Syman, Author of  The Subtle Body: The Story of Yoga in America   "We are in need of maps that point to the interconnection of our inner life and a world that needs our creativity and integrity. This commentary on the  Yogasūtra ties together ethics, working with mental states, and living a life that benefits others. The most important insight this book offers is that awakening can be embodied and relational. The  Yogasūtra can help you overcome the fear of being a stranger in the world while motivating you to act!" -Michael Stone, Author of  Awake in the World From the Back Cover The intention of this short book is to show the reader how to apply the principles of yoga in everyday life, in both formal and informal ways. Its focus is on pragmatic tools that facilitate a new perspective on the world. It leads us through the eight-limbed system of yoga, explaining its coherent framework and revealing it as something we can turn to again and again to deepen and expand our understanding and practice. With topics ranging from the dynamic interplay between practice and dispassion to how to cultivate our commitment, Stuart Ray Sarbacker and Kevin Kimple's The Eight Limbs of Yoga provides a clear explanation of yoga's transformative power and the guidance and tools to set ourselves on the path towards yoga's infinite potential. About the Author Stuart Ray Sarbacker is an associate professor of Comparative Religion and Indian Philosophy at Oregon State University and specializes in South Asian religion and philosophy.
