“This book takes you into the mind of a noted renegade yogi. With humor and disarming honesty, Ganga explains the history and philosophy of yoga, and guides you with his own original and innovative approach to this ancient discipline. Yoga Beyond Belief is a unique, integrative approach to body, mind and spirit. It is practical, inspiring and full of valuable insights to enliven and inform the practice of both beginning and experienced students. I recommend it highly.” —Andrew Weil, MD
“Yoga Beyond Belief will strike a chord with anyone seeking a new level of awakening and freedom in yoga and in their lives. This book offers a flexible and modern perspective that is needed more than ever to meet and live in these times of accelerating change.” —Sting, from the Foreword
“This is a rich, wide-ranging work of great sensitivity and eloquence, a guided journey through the world of yoga by a master whose wisdom is matched by his humility—a rare and precious commodity in the modern yoga scene of massive egos, glitz, and hype.” —David Gordon White, PhD, author of Kiss of the Yogini: “Tantric Sex” in its South Asian Contexts and professor of Hinduism, UCSB
“In Yoga Beyond Belief, Ganga has done an outstanding job…. This is the clear voice of a modern yogi. Ganga is living proof that the real tradition of yoga is still very much alive and well.” —Erich Schiffmann, author of Yoga: The Spirit and Practice of Moving into Stillness
“Yoga Beyond Belief weaves together science, spiritual inquiry, personal stories, and yoga practices into a tapestry that will serve students of self-discovery in navigating their own unique path.” —Jack Canfield, author of Chicken Soup for the Soul ®
“Ganga is the spearhead of a revolutionary evolution in the field of yoga. His endeavor has been: How to retain the old form and put new spirit into it? It also implies: How not to throw the baby out with the bathwater.” —Swami Venkatesa
“This book can make yoga meaningful to people who never imagined it. It is a tour de force of deconstructing tradition and making yoga a powerful, exploratory vehicle for modern times.” —Joel Kramer, author of The Guru Papers and A Passionate Mind
