108 Steps To God - Dealing With God’s Jokes
The latest book by popular yoga teacher and the founder of Sun Power Yoga, Anne-Marie Newland, 108 Steps To God - Dealing With God’s Jokes is a personal journey through life’s dramas and how to manoeuvre through them. Never one to take life at face value, the author takes readers through her everyday family and work life-challenges, showing setbacks in a positive light so that problems become teachings. Easy to read, and simply structured (the 108 steps represent the 108 beads on the mala, the string of beads by which we practice Japa meditation) and filled with accessible insight. If life is viewed as a spiritual obstacle course, then this book offers coordinates by which to travel. Includes a foreword by Swami Saradananda. Available on Amazon.
Yoga and the Art of Mudras
Yoga and the Art of Mudras is a guided journey into the alchemy of asana (yoga pose) and mudra (symbolic hand gesture). The author, Brazilian-born yogini and dancer Nubia Teixeira has been practicing and teaching traditional yoga and classical Indian Odissi dance for over 26 years. In this book, she fuses her passion for yoga and dance with her love for bhakti (devotion). She guides the reader in a meaningful union of hand gestures with asanas, drawing, in particular, on expressions and hand gestures found in Indian dance. In so doing, she has created a unique, original, and contemporary yoga system that encompasses all three healing arts.
