UG Inspired Yoga Book:
Teaching Yoga", part memoir, part practice, part personal narrative,
introduces us to Melissa Forbes, yoga practitioner, educator, and
artist and her journey to experience "true Yoga".
She reviews the roots of the practice of yoga, from the pre-classic
to the modern period of today, and shares with us her own yoga pilgrimage
around the world, exploring her time with UG Krishnamurti,the last
five years of his life. He was declared a Jivamukti, liberated being,
who gave her glimpses of Union and how a person functioned who was
in the "natural state".
She challenges us to move beyond the popular Western perception of
yoga as a fitness program and embrace the return to the original primary
goal of yoga oneness of self with cosmic consciousness.
Central to the book are the Miracle Combinations, eight new practices
gleaned from her years of study and personal reflection, adorned with
Melissa's intricate jewel-like paintings of yantras in a Vedic square
integrated with the Mayan teachings of Light Language (sacred geometry).
