In Yoga Of Heart, yoga instructor Mark Whitwell takes us back to the time when yoga was first developed and to the shamanic past of the Upanishads, when yoga was practiced as a means of acknowledging, enjoying and participating in the source of Life. Whitwell explores the deeper tantric dimensions of hatha yoga - how yoga's purpose is to link the mind to the wonder of our own condition. He shows how hatha yoga is participation in life's polarities already in union - through the male surrender to the female principle. Yoga Of Heart focuses especially on clearing the energy centers and meridians and fostering dynamic health.
This is the original NZ first edition of Mark Whitwell's Yoga of Heart with full colour photos, 2002.
Before Mark Whitwell's mother died, she told him, "Men can learn how to love women properly. When they receive us, our strength comes out. That's best for men too." Inspired by her words, Whitwell has delivered a treatise on how yoga relates to intimate relationships, sexuality, gender, and love. He suggests that the practice of yoga, which he describes as "the merging of all polarities," will foster "mutuality between men and women." Much of the book's text is taken from talks given by Whitwell, who lives in and teaches in both the United States and New Zealand. His freewheeling discourses are thought-provoking, and his ideas and passion for putting them across are compelling, but the book would have benefitted from more skillful editing.
