So disappointed. I have been attending yoga classes for 6 months and am keen to learn more. This book appeared to offer greater insight without being dogmatic. Perhaps in the same way as Mindfulness offers meditation. This is not the case. For example, in the intro he states a Yogi can be a Christian, Jew, agnostic etc. Yet, by chap 1 he was referring to basic Christian beliefs as lies. He quickly advocates hard core Hindu beliefs. Not what I was looking for at all.
Any additional comments?
Yoga and the Path of the Urban Mystic is an invaluable resource for anyone seeking to apply the ancient traditions of yoga to a modern Western lifestyle in a way that is both meaningful and respectful. In combining a comprehensive overview of the "8 Limbs" of yoga philosophy with anecdotes from his personal life, Darren Main strikes a perfect balance between depth and accessibility that makes for an enjoyable and relatable read.

Where does Yoga and the Path of the Urban Mystic rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I was so excited to see this as an audiobook. Darren Main explains yoga concepts in a way that is clear, intelligent and practical. Other yoga books can leave my head spinning with terms and spiritual loftiness that leave me more confused than enlightened. This book is a breath of fresh air to those that want to know more about the practice of yoga and in a way that makes sense in our hectic day to day lives. I especially love his personal stories that he uses to explain different concepts. I read this book a few years ago and have already recommended it to others. I wish it was read by the author himself, however the narrator does a great job too. So glad I can now listen to this book on my walks! I definitely recommend!
