Yoga draws many practitioners because of its physical benefits, but it is often the experience of peace that people return for. Pamela Seelig’s inspiring new book Threads of Yoga supports those seeking to learn more about Yoga’s deeper spiritual teachings. 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 offers the reader insight into the deeper meaning and purpose of Yoga, framed in the context of the world’s wisdom traditions. Pamela Seelig systematically presents core themes of yoga in a simple and accessible way, offering practices that will give the reader an opportunity to have a direct experience of these timeless teachings. It is clear that Pamela’s writing is informed not only from her extensive study but also from the depth of her own personal practice.” —Gary Kraftsow, author of Yoga for Wellness and Yoga for Transformation
