Yoga: The Essence of Life is a collection of interviews with eight thought-provoking and prominent teachers of yoga. These modern yogis reflect candidly on their personal experience of the eternal quest to know the Self.From the mighty Shandor to the deity-like Muktanand, each of these teachers has walked a spiritual path that is unique. Whichever the path - on the mat performing demanding poses or at the guru's feet in silent meditation - each has confronted notions of ego and Self, of separateness and unity, of purpose and pain, and of ultimate liberation. This book gives the dedicated yoga student and curious reader alike the chance to listen to the wisdom of these teachers. To hear their inner-most thoughts, and to glimpse a little of the essence of life according to the philosophy of yoga from those who have lived it.
