"Yoga and Jyotish"
Deepening your Yoga Practice with Vedic Astrology
My friend Amit (Vedic astrologer) and I wrote this unique book that shows how we can create an individualized yoga practice with the help of our birth chart (horoscope).
The Interconnectedness of Vedic Sciences
Yoga, Jyotish, Āyurveda and Vāstu are inseparable branches of ancient wisdom coming from the same source – the Vedās. Yoga talks about union of body, mind and soul. Jyotish or Vedic astrology is classified as the eyes of the Vedās, it is the light of God, the science of time, a map of Karma. Āyurveda is the science of life and teaches us how to maintain or regain constitutional balance. Vāstu is the science of space. How can we separate time from space? How can we separate body from mind? In this book we have described the intimate connection between Jyotish and Yoga. When studied and applied together, these branches of ancient wisdom can bring amazing clarity and transformation.
Role of Jyotish in Yoga: This Book
So how can understanding of our Karma through our horoscope help us in our Yoga practice? Choosing a Yoga practice that is based on our Kārmic map is like riding a bicycle in the direction of the wind as opposed to riding it against the wind. Our chart tells us who we are as an individual. An Aries rising person for example, may not be able to sit still for more than a few seconds at a time but he or she can possibly do one hundred Sun salutations every single day; a strong Cancer person may never want to do Yoga by themselves, they like to do things in a group; a strong Leo person may have a tough time following instructions in a Yoga class but they usually make great Yoga teachers. We are all unique. Our Yoga practice should also be. Jyotish can help us individualize our Yoga practice. This is what this book is about.
