“Inhale and God approaches you. Hold the inhalation and God remains with you. Exhale and you approach God. Hold the exhalation and surrender to God.” These were the words of Krishnamacharya, the father of modern yoga. For some, yoga is a thorough stretching routine that helps maintain health; for others, yoga can be a route to not only physical wellness, but spiritual balance. The Sivananda Yoga Companion, with its clear-cut drawings and photos of poses, is a standard yoga text that will help you to discover the relaxing, meditative, dietary, and physical benefits of practicing yoga. If you want to boost your energy, flexibility, and focus – try yoga!
