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.

I'm a fan of both the print and audio edition. The audio edition makes it easier to listen to the book while commuting.
The explanations of the Yamas and Niyamas.
I felt that Jesse captured the authors tone and style of story telling.
It made me contemplative about how I could incorporate more yoga philosophy in my day to day life.
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!
energetic, vivid, captivating
Easy to listen to.
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.
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!
