With his expert teachings, philosophical insights, and pragmatic imagery, world-class yoga instructor Tias Little turns the anatomy of the physical body into a tool for navigating the subtle body.

If you spend considerable time doing yoga, you begin to see that it is about much more than just the body—the practice of yoga in fact reveals that the body is in no way separate from the pyschospiritual forces that animate it.

Little is a master teacher who offers us a guided tour of the body’s structure and physical anatomy, then uses this new structural awareness as the basis for exploring the subtle body. In a meaningful and pragmatic way, the book maps the connection between the body and the rich symbolism that pervades the yogic imagination, including the chakras, nadis, and koshas.

Editorial Reviews

“Tias Little is a necessary bridge between East and West. By being steeped in yoga practice, meditation, and Western anatomy, he digs deep into the mystery of being and unearths the wisdom he shares in this book. This book is immediately accessible to the beginner and yet will keep on delivering provocative inspiration throughout your lifetime. I am so happy and honored to be on the path with Tias.”—Rodney Yee, author of Moving toward Balance “The body and spirit are exact mirrors of each other—a fact much more apparent to the ancients than to those of us distracted by our modern materialism. Tias even-handedly blends the anatomy we know today with the anatomy of the energetic body. His many years of experience imbue this book with an easy authority.”—Thomas Myers, author of Anatomy Trains
