Yoga has been popularized in modern society by its many postures, called asanas—but what’s mostly missing in today’s yoga are the inner asanas that lead to lasting freedom and enlightenment after the physical practice.
The practice of yoga is so much more than simply the physical postures we practice in a yoga class. In fact, the physical asana is only one of the eight limbs of yoga.
Living Ecstasy is an applicable series of ancient and invented reflections, meditations, and visualizations that awaken the full spectrum of yoga’s depth, power, and impact, touching on the full eight limbs of yoga, and how they directly relate to your life.
In 100 easy-to-read experiential practices, Satyen Raja guides you through his decades of embodied wisdom in the practice of yoga, martial arts, and transformational modalities, which comes from personally studying with the great masters of our generation.
