Publisher's Summary

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. Tias Little here provides a way to understand these forces as they relate to an integrated yoga of body, mind, and spirit. He unites somatic concepts and wisdom teachings in this practical guide to the anatomy of the physical, mental, emotional, and subtle (or energetic) body.

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. Further, Little offers listeners clear, insightful yoga, pranayama, and meditation exercises that apply these body-mind principles.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Great Content - Strange Narration

This work is for a very specific audience - and the content is wonderful. I am learning a lot and am grateful for the teachings of Tias Little in general.
I have found the narration of this work to be very distracting. The narrator places emphasis on words in a rather strange way and some terminology is inaccurately pronounced. It sounds as though the narrator had not previously read the work prior to recording and so consequently, there is an odd pace to the narration.
This may be a very personal preference and I am very grateful that this audiobook is available but have had to try to 'manage' my frustration at times when listening - which I feel is a great shame, given the quality of expertise shared by the author.

the next level

The information and practices for accessing and nurturing the subtle body will forever change the way I practice and teach yoga. My only wish is that someday, Tias himself will read the book out loud, as his voice and presence would add so much to the teaching and instruction...

Narrator Bummer

I really want to get through this book but the narrator was poorly chosen. I wish Tias Little had narrated it himself, it would have conveyed the material with more understanding. So many mispronunciations and there’s a strange intonation throughout. I feel like they chose someone with a false “sexy yoga teacher” voice. Whhhhhhyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

An important text on Yoga

Yoga of the subtle body by Tias Little is a rich and profound text on yoga practice and philosophy. In my humble opinion, this text is as important as the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. The author describes several important aspects of Chakras, Nadis, bandhas and Prana. Connects these concepts with the physiology of the gross and subtle body, and recommending a practice at the end of each topic. I purchased the Audible version and was so impressed that I purchased a paper copy as well. I would highly recommend this book to every yoga teacher and student who would like to move beyond their physical practice into the yoga of the subtle body.

Extremely well put together book.

So much information. Will need to do this one a few more times. What a wonderful performance by the narrator.

An absolute must for yoga teachers!

As an athlete and yoga teacher, I've always been drawn to anatomy and physiology. When I came upon this book seeking information on the subtle body and chakras, I knew I needed to add it to my library. I loved this book so much, I'm listening to it again. The PDF is a wonderful add-on.

Rampant Mispronunciation of Key Terms, ugh

Tias Little's brilliant and essential text is done such a disservice by the poorly edited narration. There seems to have been no quality control on pronunciation. The text, while accessible to any audience, is an invaluable teachers' resource, No teacher (or even Hindi speaker) will be able to stand how Sanskrit names for poses are invariably mispronounced, or variably pronounced, and in many cases are just completely incorrect. Medical terms in other languages including English are mispronounced as well. I don't see this as the fault of the narrator (though I agree with others that I would have preferred to hear the author's voice) -- but rather of Audible's negligence in editing the narration for mistakes. It's really shameful that such a seminal text would get such shoddy treatment by Audible.

Remarkable really

One of the more lucid explainations of yoga anatomy. Focus on modern anatomy and thought provoking visuals, your imagination is provoked and you literally begin to feel the author's discriptions. Beautiful book

Deep stuff for deep people

Tias presented to me in a course online and I was immediately intrigued. Manifesting in book form he does not disappoint. No previous knowledge of Yoga needed, but a willingness to experiment and physically try his suggestions is helpful. Up to date I have not read or heard a synthesis of ideas as internally focused yet outwardly integrated.

Enjoy it!

Dreadful vocal presentation

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Tiffany Morgan's voice is dreadful and detracted from my appreciating the content of the book. Far too much contrived inauthentic convoluted vocal twisting. I find the way in which the interesting text is distorted by the voice of the speaker detracts from appreciating and enjoying the book. It sounded like an actress at work rather than an honest investigation.

great book, dire narratikn

the book itself is a masterpiece, full of detailed information and helpful practical exercise. unfortunately the narration is awful! it is laboriously read as if it were a story - very forced and very confusing when the material is actually informative, not fantastical... the narration makes the material harder to follow and understand. i have persevered puerly because i bave the physical book by my side and use tne narration only to lead me do the the practical exercises.
it would be wonderful to hear the author himself lead one through the book!

Terrible narration

I returned this audiobook because the narration was just terrible! Incorrect pronunciation, rising inflections in weird places. I could not concentrate on the content and As a yoga teaching and energy medicine therapist I am this books ideal target market. I’d revisit if it were re-read by the author.

great book, narration not so much

the book is great and wonderfully weaves in meridians, yoga philosophy as well add anatomy and practices.
the narrator however has lots of words wrong, not just in sanskrit where she's terrible but also in anatomy terms
