Integrating Philosophy in Yoga Teaching and Practice Summary

Integrating Philosophy in Yoga Teaching and Practice: A Practical Guide by Wendy Teasdill

Providing simple explanations of the various philosophical strands underpinning yoga as well as guidance on how to integrate them into teaching, this practical work from Wendy Teasdill concerns itself with values that are often lost in modern-day practice. It looks at balance, moderation, introspection, self-development and liberation, integrating these into asana practices in a way that deepens the experience.

Each chapter covers a particular aspect of yoga philosophy in the key texts, with links to asana, pranayama, moral codes, as well as some contemporary issues such as orthorexia, the question of cultural appropriation, the role of the guru, misuse of power and recognition of authenticity in an ever-evolving scene. By presenting practical skills rooted in yoga's long history, Integrating Philosophy in Yoga Teaching and Practice makes the transition from physical to metaphysical easy for both yoga teachers and students.

Integrating Philosophy in Yoga Teaching and Practice Reviews

This book is a veritable cornucopia, horn of plenty, literally, of all things yoga, packed into a relatively small book of 300 pages. It is an easy read, and one which will be much appreciated by serious practitioners, student teachers, teachers and teacher trainers. Above all it is practical and Wendy links many asanas to the philosophy in such a way that it enhances and deepens the practice and adds light to the understanding of the text. There is a huge variety of practices, some of which will most probably be new to many, and thus gives the reader more new asana to explore with fresh eyes ... It was an absolute pleasure to read this book (which incidentally I did in two and a half days!) and I would highly recommend it to all. -- Wendy Haring, Chair of the British Wheel of Yoga Education committee
