Kripalu Yoga: A Guide to Practice On and Off the Mat, written with clarity and intelligence by Richard (Shobhan) Faulds and published by Bantam, is the only complete resource on Kripalu Yoga.

Its 400 pages speak to yoga’s depth and breadth, providing user-friendly instructions for posture practice suitable for beginners as well as a wealth of guidance and exercises for yoga enthusiasts wanting to deepen their practice. The book also features in-depth consideration of the off-the-mat approaches to emotional, psychological, and spiritual health that make Kripalu Yoga so unique.

The 23 chapters are brought alive by a multitude of stories and quotes from Kripalu Yoga practitioners and senior teachers, more than 375 photos and illustrations, and the yoga poetry of Danna Faulds.
