The Secret Power of Yoga by Nischala Joy Devi brings a feminine perspective to the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Devi's interpretation integrates an intuitive and healing-centered awareness with the ancient texts, making this a uniquely alive, accessible commentary. Nischala Joy Devi, in her study of Yogic teachings, found that nearly all the translations of the Yoga Sutras available today have been created by male authors. Her mission in The Secret Power of Yoga is to expand the potential of the relationship of the Yoga Sutras to women, with a focus on the particular verses which have the most relevance for today’s spiritual seeker. Offering the feminine experience of the texts allows the reader to access a balanced and full understanding of their meaning, and Devi steps up to this job with a loving touch that feels like the very essence of Yoga. The Secret Power of Yoga helps us to re-access ancient wisdom with a fresh perspective. Women will find a closer relationship to these texts, and men will find much needed perspective to navigate the rapidly growing world of female Yogis. Nischala Joy Devi is a renowned Yoga expert who has been teaching internationally for more than thirty years. She is regarded as an expert on the subtle use of body and mind in healing and stress management.
