Sometimes we are lucky enough to find the right book to read at the right time in our lives. Yoga Quest by Paul Fox was certainly the right book for me at this point in my Yoga journey. As a result I found this book a very useful overview of yoga.
Paul Fox, the author, is the current Chair of the British Wheel of Yoga. His knowledge and experience of his subject matter is evident.
Joe Knightly’s Yoga Quest
Yoga Quest is a really easy read and quite the page turner. The author’s skill in this novel is to educate you as you read. The book follows the journey of the main character Joe Knightly on his Yoga Quest. This is a quest to discover the true meaning of Yoga. It is a wonderful vehicle for the readers own learning about all things yoga.
Joe’s 2 year long Yoga Quest takes in all of the main types of Yoga, the history of Yoga and the main famous teachers. As a reader I related to the main characters reaction to certain aspects of the Yoga journey and the current trends in yoga. The reader is given a comprehensive overview of Yoga through the plot of the book. The foreign locations in the book really come alive and make me want to visit them.
It is not often I read a book and feel the need to have pen and paper to hand to jot down things to enquire into myself. After finishing reading Yoga Quest by Paul Fox, I now have a list which forms my very own Yoga Quest and I am thoroughly looking forward to starting it! I also have a renewed appreciation and love for Janu Sirsasana!
If you are interested in Yoga, new to Yoga or even on your own Yoga journey, I would recommend this book to you. It is a great read!
