Soooo did you know B.K.S. Iyengar had a new book? Did you know it will be his last major book ever? To complete the canon of invaluable yoga texts such as Light on Yoga, Light on Life, Light On Pranayama, and The Tree of Yoga that helped us modern folk understand the ancient teachings, we are treated to Mr. Iyengar’s wisdom on yoga philosophy and his interpretation of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
Core of the Yoga Sutras presents each sutra in Sanskrit, transliteration and English translation followed by B.K.S. Iyengar’s commentary.
Iyengar, who turned 94 this past December, calls this book his “last major work in this lifetime.” Let’s just say all the lights are on and Guruji is home to school us.
We are truly delighted to be giving away TWO copies of Core of the Yoga Sutras: The Definitive Guide to the Philosophy of Yoga, B.K.S. Iyengar’s final book, courtesy of Harper Collins, which was just released today (Jan. 29). Woop!
TO ENTER: The official description states that the B. K. S. Iyengar Yoga National Association of the United States (IYNAUS) is a not-for-profit organization that “disseminates and promotes the art, science and philosophy of yoga according to the teachings of B. K. S. Iyengar.” We think we could all add our own personal flavor to that. So we ask you – for you – is yoga an art? A science? A philosophy? A _____? Your turn!
Giveaway open until 11:59pm Sunday, February 3, 2013. Two winners will be chosen at random and announced soon after. Good luck!
