author of this book, Elizabeth Kadetsky suffered from a mysterious
pain. The only relief she seemed to find was in her Yoga
class. Elizabeth learned to meditate when she was seven.
She tried an interesting experiment when she was very young. She
wondered if it was possible to think of nothing, or was it only
possible to think of the act of thinking of nothing?
thing that Elizabeth liked best about Yoga was the fact that it
demanded something from your mind. She stated that it required
a concentration that made it impossible for her to think about
things that were bothering her.
Elizabeth became aware of the
Yoga institute of B.K.S. Iyengar. She was finally invited to
study there. She found Iyengar a demanding teacher.
Through Yoga Elizabeth discovered a spiritual discipline that she
could not compare to anything else. She also learned much
about her complicated life.
Elizabeth Kadetsky has written an
inspiring, sincere memoir. It is interesting to follow her
journey through the mystical world of Yoga and read about her
studies with a master in this area. This is a good one to add
to your reading list!
