Author Kathleen Nitting takes you off the mat with a contemporary understanding of yoga, offering practical ways to integrate this ancient philosophy into daily life. By delving deeper into the wisdom and science of yoga, Going beyond the Pose illustrates how these teachings are as relevant today as they were thousands of years ago.
Nitting outlines the four paths of yoga—love, action, knowledge, and meditation—practiced by great sages of the past, along with contemporary yogis, in search of true joy and success. Guiding you through the paths are insights and inspiration from some of today’s spiritual leaders; glimpses of those who have left this physical realm; poignant personal stories that exemplify the meaning of being in yoga; and a brave level of authenticity from Nitting as she shares her own yogic path.
Going beyond the Pose shows how you, too, can access and experience the benefits of yoga in the Living Yoga exercises peppered throughout the book. It offers an eloquent translation of Nitting’s journey of using yoga as a compass to orient her own life toward happiness and her passion to share this truth.
