“Structured around the eight limbs identified in the yoga sutras of Pantanjali, this highly accessible approach leads you from Yama, the practice of universal ethical disciplines, right through to Samadhi, union with the Supreme Being. Throughout, Cat de Rham shares personal hints, practical tips and artistic inspiration through poetry and photographs, on how Pantanjali’s beautiful teachings translate into both the practice of yoga and our everyday lives. Written over 2000 years ago, the yoga sutras are a step-by-step guide to the attainment of true liberation. Patanjali sets out eight steps, or limbs, that lead to enlightenment. Through an entrancing mix of photos, poetry and words of wisdom, Cat explores each of the eight limbs, giving insight into how these ancient texts can be brought to life in the modern world both in your yoga practice and in day-to-day living. Whether you’re a beginner, an advanced yoga practitioner, or simply seeking a more meaningful approach to life, The Spirit of Yoga will inspire you.”
