  • Yoga Word Puzzles, The Sutras, was much more challenging to create and the puzzles are much more challenging to solve!  I used the first two padas of the yoga sutras and used BKS Iyengar's Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali for the translations.  You can take a puzzle, study those sutras, and then play the puzzle to test your memory and spelling ability.  There are 56 puzzles in this book created by Nancy Roberts.

  • This new title from Prashant Iyengar, published in 2013, is an exploration of Yogasana. Prashantji starts by reflecting on where in the Yoga Sutras Patanjali mentions asana and in what context. He then defines and discusses each of the 18 kriyas which constitute each asana. When these 18 kriyas are integrated in the practice of an asana, the effect is Yogasana. "When the practitioner becomes familiar with these Kriyas and is able to include all the 18 Kriyas in the practice, one can hope for a renewed beginning. It is as if one has rebooted the computer. One then starts Yog practice with some idea and sense of purpose - to make the embodiment a fit instrument to serve our life's purpose."  193 pages.

  • Adhyatma is a concept in the timeless ancient Hindo Vedic philosophy. It is loosely understood as something spiritual, ethereal, trans-mundane and transcendent. The essential nature of Adhyatma is that there must be no component in our action that is external to us. Prashant Iyengar explores this concept in depth in this text.
