The Spirit of the Matter

Mysore style yoga and the
metaphysics of Yoga Taravali

The Spirit of the Matter is a book that presents the benefits of “Mysore style” yoga, known as a classical self-practice style of yoga, which has been wed to the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga system popularised around the world.

This traditional way to learn yoga allows the practitioner to lay a strong foundation of physical and psychological health, as well as a practical understanding of yogic spiritual principles. The book succinctly and clearly explains ancient techniques and frameworks that provide a path for the human to flourish in a life of joyous freedom and positivity.

It guides the student through diverse concepts such as yogic meditation, the nature of consciousness and the place of the material world in a spiritual life. It also incorporates a modern commentary on the ancient yogic text “Yoga Taravali” historically the spiritual cornerstone embedded within the Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga system.
