Yoga Themes — The Thread That Runs Through

Su Sareen


Yoga teacher and author Su Sareen has just published her second book, following the success of her debut title, ‘See How Yoga Feels’. The new release, ‘Yoga Themes: The Thread That Runs Through’ offers a collection of fully-illustrated themes for yoga teachers planning lessons and anyone practicing on their own. It’s a bit unlike other yoga books in that it’s not about any particular asanas and there’s no Sanskrit, gurus, belief systems or schools of yoga. It is a book about the experience of practicing yoga — from the inside. It’s more about the feelings, attention and focus you get during practice. Also available as an ebook/kindle, priced £5. Available on Amazon.
