Astrology Yoga: Cosmic Cycles of Transformation
Astrology Yoga is the first comprehensive book on the practice of Yoga using the ancient science of Vedic Astrology, or Jyotish.
Written for yoga practitioners with a limited knowledge of astrology, this book explains the dynamic and vital relationship that has always existed between these two ancient Vedic sciences and how you can use this knowledge to accelerate your transformation by working with your personal planetary energies.
You will learn about your yogic Sun sign and Moon sign, the specific karmic issues in your life, the most appropriate yoga practices based on your birth date, and the most beneficial times to do your yoga practices over the day, during the week, and throughout all the cycles of your life.
The book describes the original relationship between Eastern or Vedic astrology and yoga and the differences between Yoga astrology and western astrology. You’ll learn about the nine major planetary energies, the twelve signs, and the twelve life areas of astrology yoga.
The major yoga practices of asanas, pranayama, mudras, mantras and meditations are correlated with your astrological makeup and you will learn how to work with your planetary energies through the techniques of yoga.
Astrology and Yoga are explained in connection with the subtle anatomy of the chakras, the nadis (energy channels), and the koshas (levels of existence). Patanjali’s Eight Limbs of Yoga from the Sutras are explained in terms of the nine planets of Vedic Astrology.
You’ll learn about your own astrological life cycles that affect your consciousness and yoga practices, as well as the universal cosmic cycles that affect everyone. Yoga practices for the moon phases, the days of the week, months of the year, and the hours of the day, as well as for the special occasions of the solstices, equinoxes and eclipses, are discussed to help you design a yoga practice that supports you through each cycle of your life.
Written by a life-long practitioner and teacher of Yoga as well as a certified Vedic astrologer, Astrology Yoga provides you with a personal roadmap for your journey to enlightenment.
“I am a student of Eastern Astrology and yoga, so I have read many books on both topics and by far love this one the best for many reasons. It is very well written in a way that as a layperson or Astrology student you are able to grasp the concepts. The information is presented in a concise well organized manner that flows from one topic to the next. You will learn things about yourself and chart that can be applied to your life immediately with meditations that you can start practicing. I have already read the book once and can not wait to read it again as I know that I will gain new insights every time I read it! For any yoga student interested in learning about Astrology or Astrology student that wants to learn about the application of yoga and Astrology this is the book for you!” ~ L. Satter
A rich read and reference for yoga teachers: both easy to use and in depth. Also, a great tool for vedic astrologers with a plethora of remedial offerings as well as unique planet, sign and house descriptions, minus the all too common doom and gloom language found in many astrology books. ~ WB Barron
With tons of Jyotish books around my home, this one is picked up every day as I examine my own chart and current planetary influences. I enjoy this book for its realistic application. Mehtab has a gift for making real world sense out of wildly esoteric topics. Thanks for writing and publishing Astrology Yoga, I needed it! ~ M&V Medley
