In this essential book, Dona Holleman blends her unique philosophy of yoga with substantial and detailed descriptions of the asanas. First published as "Dancing the Body of Light" (from which the central chapter on asana is reprinted) this edition includes access to an audio recording online.
Drawing from over 50 years of experience in yoga practice and teaching, Dona's ambitious and uncompromising book, written in a crisp, clear and no-nonsense style, is a must for all serious yoga practitioners and teachers.
Dona Holleman started studying Oriental philosophy at the age of 12 while living on the island of Java. Since a very early age her main interest has been "the body, the mystery of the body". Thus, when she came in contact with yoga in the 50s, it immediately became her main path. In the mid 60s she met and studied with B.K.S Iyengar, and she has since spent the last 40 years exploring the various aspects of yoga in her own practice and teaching. Her belief is that the final answer lies within the body, and that each human being has to find this for him or herself alone, guided by the inner light and teacher which is in each of us.
