It is possible to live much of the rest of your life free from suffering, anxiety and uncertainty. You can experience profound joy and fulfillment in every moment, feeling connected, grounded and whole. You can free yourself from social conditioning, discover who you truly are, and live as a liberated being, fully connected with the Divine. The Eight Limbs of Yoga, known also as "Ashtanga" in Sanskrit, is the centerpiece of The Yoga Sutras, the most poignant and relevant text on Yoga for modern day practitioners. Written some 2,500 years ago by the great sage Patanjali, the Sutras offer us a time-tested pathway to self-realization, inner harmony, contentment and peace. In this book, Bhava Ram applies the Eight Limbs to the challenging circumstances of our modern lives and shares how each of us can open our hearts and transform ourselves through this profound wisdom. At the very core of Bhava's message is that each of us possesses a great inner power to unfold our innate creativity, tap into our inner wisdom and manifest our fullest potential.

Silence and stillness have the effect of conserving all the bodily forces usually wasted in unnecessary speech and action. You become for the first time conscious of the rhythmic flow of life's forces, and are able to hear the faint music they make on the harp of the body. -from "Silence" One of the most extraordinary figures of the popular intellectualism of the early 20th century, Claude Bragdon was an architect and designer who turned his mathematically fueled artistic bent toward the metaphysical. Here, in wise, insightful prose, Bragdon offers an introduction-first published in 1943-to the philosophy of yoga as an aid to expanding the human consciousness. From mastering the art of concentration to finding new depth in sexuality, this is a frank, perceptive call to rethink how we live our lives in the modern world. Other works by Bragdon available from Cosimo Classics: The Eternal Poles, Four-Dimensional Vistas, Projective Ornament, The Beautiful Necessity, Architecture and Democracy, Episodes from An Unwritten History, and A Primer of Higher Space (The Fourth Dimension). American architect, stage designer, and writer CLAUDE FAYETTE BRAGDON (1866-1946) helped found the Rochester Architectural Club, in the city where he made his greatest mark as a building designer with structures including Rochester Central Station, Rochester Institute of Technology, and the First Universalist Church; he also designed Peterborough Bridge in Ontario. In later life, Bragdon worked on Broadway as scenic designer for 1930s productions of Cyrano de Bergerac and Hamlet, among others.
Whether you are a complete beginner or have tried yoga in the past and wish to rekindle your interest, this invaluable, beautifully-illustrated book is the one for you. We all want to feel good about ourselves and yoga provides a way of realising our potential so that we can enjoy a full life. To be fit in body, steady in mind and strong in spirit are all attributes that build self-confidence and the inner strength to cope with all complexities of life. It is the author's firm belief that the practice of yoga has a subtle influence on improving the quality of our lives. In Starting Yoga, the author, Alan Bradbury, in his gentle and elegant way, invites you to take up the challenge of yoga and to see where it takes you. He presents a step-by-step guide to classical yoga postures and individual chapters cover getting started, good posture, standing and seated poses, and backbends and twists. Other chapters teach you how to relax, how to breathe efficiently and how to incorporate the bandhas [the chin lock, the root lock and the stomach lift] in order to help eliminate the obstacles to that 'feel-good factor' we all search for. As you become fitter, stronger and more alive you will come to understand some of the nuances that make yoga so special. "This book achieves the correct balance between the beginner's need for simplicity, clarity and guidance and the need for accessibility and loyalty to the traditional philosophical elements of yoga." Dr Alberto Albeniz, Consultant Psychiatrist
