When you step onto the mat, who is your teacher? “Each of us—no matter who we learn from or what style of yoga we practice—can become our own teacher and create a deeply personal and healing yoga practice,” writes Peter Sterios. “The key is to learn the language of the subtle body.”
As most practitioners come to realize, yoga works on much more than the physical body—it also works on the unseen, energetic forces of the subtle body that enliven our physical experience. With Gravity & Grace, Sterios provides a comprehensive guide for working with the subtle body through yoga. Known for his lighthearted and joyful approach, Sterios teaches readers how to create healing yoga practices that serve each person’s unique tapestry of personality, background, and body type.
Using hatha yoga as a starting point, Sterios shares lessons and practice principles that anyone with any level of health or experience can follow. Readers will gain a deeper understanding of subtle body anatomy, its physical and psychological effects on our health, and how to harness its energy for maximum healing.
