Astanga Yoga is an ancient wisdom, the greatest and noblest gift that Sage Patanjali has offered mankind. Its wisdom is timeless and is as valid today as it was centuries ago. Its beauty lies in the application of its principles that can be adopted and adapted in discovering the finer aspects of man according to one’s physical and intellectual capacity. The world-renowned Guru BKS Iyengar provides a lucid explanation on the exposition and application of the principles of Sage Patanjali in Light on Astanga Yoga. BKS Iyengar is considered as one of the foremost Guru on Yoga, who revived interest in the ancient subject and popularised it across the world. His writings are all based on his personal experiences. His book Light on Yoga written more than 50 years ago is often referred to as the Bible of Yoga. He is an author of over 30 books and most are best-sellers.

B.K.S. Iyengar--hailed as "the Michelangelo of yoga" (BBC) and considered by many to be one of the most important yoga masters--has spent much of his life introducing the modern world to the ancient practice of yoga. Yoga's popularity is soaring, but its widespread acceptance as an exercise for physical fitness and the recognition of its health benefits have not been matched by an understanding of the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual development that the yogic tradition can also offer. In Light on Life, B.K.S. Iyengar brings readers this new and more complete understanding of the yogic journey. Here Iyengar explores the yogic goal to integrate the different parts of the self (body, emotions, mind, and soul), the role that the yoga postures and breathing techniques play in our search for wholeness, the external and internal obstacles that keep us from progressing along the path, and how yoga can transform our lives and help us to live in harmony with the world around us. For the first time, Iyengar uses stories from his own life, humor, and examples from modern culture to illustrate the profound gifts that yoga offers. Written with the depth of this sage's great wisdom, Light on Life is the culmination of a master's spiritual genius, a treasured companion to his seminal Light on Yoga.
