YOGA BOOKS

There are stacks of yoga books for sale these days with clear pictures of poses and detailed instructions, which are useful if not attending yoga classes. These yoga books mainly focus on the physical aspects - how to do the poses and how to improve health and wellbeing.

The yoga books below, by German spiritual teacher Heinz Grill, have a very different quality and are from some thirty books he has written in the last 10 years. They raise the understanding of yoga above the purely physical to reveal a dimension of soul and spirit and they bring a wealth of pure thoughts and subtle, sensitive feelings to our awareness. These yoga books show us a way of working with the poses to enrich our whole consciousness. The poses are described and shown in relation to each of the seven chakras, with expressive pictures that reveal the lightness and artistic aspect of this approach to yoga.

Reading spiritual literature needs a special kind of attention different from reading everyday books. It is as though we have to slow down to explore an inner world and let ourselves be touched in a deeper way. This kind of reading requires repetition and time for reflection for our understanding to mature.

To support our journey of transformation with yoga, the following three yoga books by Heinz Grill, available for the first time in English translation, provide a very helpful guide on the journey.
  • Nutrition and the inner Sense of Giving by Heinz Grill
    Published in Germany by Lammers-Koll-Verlag
    English translation available. Price £10.50
    This original approach to nutrition teaches us how to develop a feeling for food and sense its nature for ourselves, so that we no longer need to rely solely on other people's theories or dogmas about nutrition. The thoughts in these chapters are intended to accompany our own exploration of different foods as we observe them, taste them and build a relationship to them. We can then open our hearts with a new kind of sensitivity. As we develop our own inner perceptions about nature and the different foods it offers us, our souls are nourished as well as our bodies. read more

  • Six Soul-Exercises by Heinz Grill
    Published in Germany by Lammers-Koll-Verlag
    NEW English translation now available. Price £11.99
    It is possible for everyone to develop wise and sensitive qualities by training the more subtle organs of perception that each of us carries within us. The soul-exercises, or concentration-exercises, in this booklet teach us how to look in an objective way, free of our automatic, subjective reactions. Through regular practice of these kinds of exercises we can learn to see what is really there in others, in nature, in what we read, or look at. We recognise the inner truth of the people and things around us and can live more in the present, with calmness, sensitivity and joy. We strengthen our inner selves and can open our hearts more freely.
