Beautiful two colour gift package of B.K.S. Iyengar’s yoga-based philosophy for life.

A recognised classic, The Tree of Yoga is B K S Iyengar’s teaching and advice for how to life a long, healthy, happy life.

The Tree is made of many parts – all of which are vital to the health and wholeness of the tree. Like the Tree our lives are made up from many elements – all of which need our care. The Tree of Yoga identifies the important areas according to ancient yoga wisdom – and shows how we can lead a fulfilling, happy life once we understand and pay attention to each special part of life.

• Yoga and health
• Yoga as a part of daily life

• Death
• Faith – hope and spirituality
• Teachers and teaching

This is an accesible book. All the philosophical concepts covered are related directly and specifically to the practice of yoga postures and breathing.
