Description
About the Author

An enjoyable yoga memoir that makes the perfect connection between the body and the mind. Baron Baptiste, international yoga teacher and bestselling author a bunch of smart, enterprising women from different corners of the globe.

What links them is thirst for rediscovering themselves.

What brings them together is a yoga shaala in Mysore run by a young, stringent and scrupulous guru.

The book unravels the endearin stories of transformation of the yoginis-in trying to get their heads around yoga understanding its true worth as their past pains are restored, the present is embraced and the future no longer seems a blur.

There is indeed a story on every man!

Kavita Chandran is the editor and publisher of Yoga Journal Singapore. She worked with Reuters, Bloomberg and CNBC as a financial journalist for twenty years before taking the plunge to bring her love for yoga and writing together. She was born in India and has lived in the United States. Europe and Asia. A graduate of Columbia University, she now resides in Singapore with her husband and two daughters.

 

Preface

The book captures a month, as well as years, of stories that inspired the author and her peers to alter their perception and embrace the yoga mat as a way to reach out to the spiritual world. It is a compilation of real stories of many women from all parts of the world-women who are ambitious, enterprising and converged in a yoga studio in Mysore, a spiritual city in Karnataka in southern India. It is a narrative explanation for those who want the question answered- why did they end up in a yoga studio?

At a time when women are transitioning into a role that balances aspirations and tradition, they also face an onslaught of undertakings-some bestowed by past custom and convention, others by their own ways, they reach out to any medium that helps them balance their complex surroundings and deal with dilemmas and difficulties along the way. The yoga mat is just one such medium.

The book details the author’s personal experiences and the contents are expressions and opinions of the author. While the benefits of yoga have been echoed by many around the globe, the advice and strategies for holistic healing in the book carry no warranty of success. Each individual is different in their approach. These are stories of women who took to the mat for reasons that fit their purpose. While all stories are true to the best of the author’s knowledge, some names and places have been changed to protect the privacy of the characters.

Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
