Ancient Teachings and Practices
for Healing the Body, Mind, and Heart
by Gary Kraftsow

While many people use Yoga to improve their physical well being, the deeper life-enhancing aspects of this rich tradition often remain obscure even to experienced practitioners. In Yoga for Transformation, Gary Kraftsow brings the profound depth of the inner teachings of yoga into focus, introducing techniques that treat not only the physical body, but also the emotions, mind, heart, and soul of the practitioner – the places where real transformation might take place. The book’s detailed and accessible descriptions clearly present a wide range of useful practices that will help improve your energy, intellect, emotions, personality, and spirit.

“As yoga has become increasingly popular in America as a form of exercise and stress management, many Americans are now eager to explore its potential for spiritual growth and personal healing. Gary Kraftsow’s Yoga for Transformation fills this need. Whether you are a beginner or a season veteran of yoga, this book will be a valuable aid in your practice.”
