Publisher's summary

With his expert teachings, philosophical insights, and pragmatic imagery, world-class yoga instructor Tias Little turns the anatomy of the physical body into a tool for navigating the subtle body.

If you spend considerable time doing yoga, you begin to see that it is about much more than just the body - the practice of yoga in fact reveals that the body is in no way separate from the pyschospiritual forces that animate it. Tias Little here provides a way to understand these forces as they relate to an integrated yoga of body, mind, and spirit. He unites somatic concepts and wisdom teachings in this practical guide to the anatomy of the physical, mental, emotional, and subtle (or energetic) body.

Little is a master teacher who offers us a guided tour of the body's structure and physical anatomy, then uses this new structural awareness as the basis for exploring the subtle body. In a meaningful and pragmatic way, the book maps the connection between the body and the rich symbolism that pervades the yogic imagination, including the chakras, nadis, and koshas. Further, Little offers listeners clear, insightful yoga, pranayama, and meditation exercises that apply these body-mind principles.

Narrator Bummer

I really want to get through this book but the narrator was poorly chosen. I wish Tias Little had narrated it himself, it would have conveyed the material with more understanding. So many mispronunciations and there’s a strange intonation throughout. I feel like they chose someone with a false “sexy yoga teacher” voice. Whhhhhhyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

Great Content - Strange Narration

This work is for a very specific audience - and the content is wonderful. I am learning a lot and am grateful for the teachings of Tias Little in general.
I have found the narration of this work to be very distracting. The narrator places emphasis on words in a rather strange way and some terminology is inaccurately pronounced. It sounds as though the narrator had not previously read the work prior to recording and so consequently, there is an odd pace to the narration.
This may be a very personal preference and I am very grateful that this audiobook is available but have had to try to 'manage' my frustration at times when listening - which I feel is a great shame, given the quality of expertise shared by the author.

the next level

The information and practices for accessing and nurturing the subtle body will forever change the way I practice and teach yoga. My only wish is that someday, Tias himself will read the book out loud, as his voice and presence would add so much to the teaching and instruction...

An important text on Yoga

Yoga of the subtle body by Tias Little is a rich and profound text on yoga practice and philosophy. In my humble opinion, this text is as important as the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. The author describes several important aspects of Chakras, Nadis, bandhas and Prana. Connects these concepts with the physiology of the gross and subtle body, and recommending a practice at the end of each topic. I purchased the Audible version and was so impressed that I purchased a paper copy as well. I would highly recommend this book to every yoga teacher and student who would like to move beyond their physical practice into the yoga of the subtle body.

Extremely well put together book.

So much information. Will need to do this one a few more times. What a wonderful performance by the narrator.

Terrible pronunciation of key terms

The narrator consistently mispronounces both yoga terms and other words - for example “onomic” for autonomic. It is very annoying and does a real disservice to this important text. The lack of quality control is astonishing for Audible.

Remarkable really

One of the more lucid explainations of yoga anatomy. Focus on modern anatomy and thought provoking visuals, your imagination is provoked and you literally begin to feel the author's discriptions. Beautiful book

An absolute must for yoga teachers!

As an athlete and yoga teacher, I've always been drawn to anatomy and physiology. When I came upon this book seeking information on the subtle body and chakras, I knew I needed to add it to my library. I loved this book so much, I'm listening to it again. The PDF is a wonderful add-on.

Great Book, Not so Great Reader

This book is full of valuable information. I will be purchasing a hard copy. The narrated version of this book, however, was terrible. The reader mispronounces so many words, not just Sanskrit, but other words as well. I wish they could get the author or Nickolai Bachman to read the book.
