Publisher's Summary

For modern yogis feeling challenged in our efforts to remain deeply spiritual, contemplative, and centered amid the stresses and complications of urban life, this book serves as both inspiration and guide. Darren Main's fresh, down-to-earth approach to the time-tested practice and philosophy of yoga shows us the way to apply the ancient wisdom of India to every moment and every breath so that even our busiest days can be powerful and mystical adventures, filled with all the wonder and magic that was once reserved for those living as monks and nuns. Yoga for the 21st century, this is the fulfilling and joyful path of the urban mystic.

    "Thoughtful reminder of what it's like to be a yogi"
    Where does Yoga and the Path of the Urban Mystic rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was my first experience with audible and it didn't disappoint.


    What other book might you compare Yoga and the Path of the Urban Mystic to and why?

    Hmmm, I think this book is pretty unique - so I'm not sure what I would compare it to.


    What about Jesse Dornan’s performance did you like?

    He read the book with intention and it really came through with his voice.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Yoga and the Path of the Urban Mystic?

    I would listen to Yoga and the Path to the Urban Mystic on my Bart commute into work and it was precisely what I needed to hear each day. There are so many nuggets of wisdom in there, that give you permission to be a normal yogi in a modern world. After all its all about conciousness and practice. It's okay that we slip up every once in awhile, how human of us.


    Any additional comments?

    It's truly a wonderful book for new and experienced yogis. Just a good reminder to stay grounded no matter where you are on your spiritual path.

    "Clear and intelligent. A must for new yogis."
    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!

    "Great book!"
    If you could sum up Yoga and the Path of the Urban Mystic in three words, what would they be?

    energetic, vivid, captivating


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    the Buddha


    What about Jesse Dornan’s performance did you like?

    Easy to listen to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The story about how the author meditated in the morning and then went to the supermarket and get very stressed. This gave him and us a greater understanding into what yoga really means.


    Any additional comments?

    Yoga and the Path of the Urban Mystic tells an amazing story: the story of yoga. Darren Main illuminates the history, science, and practicality of yoga to both 21st century yogis and non-yogis alike in this easy-to-read text. You will not want to miss this captivating book!
