The Path of Practice: A Woman's Book of Ayurvedic Healing
I recently read Path of Practice by Maya Tiwari. Her name/recommendation has come my way from different circles. She is a teacher her in the US and an Indian/Hindu (?hard to classify) nun essentially. She has a school called Wise Earth School not too far from us in the Smokies, and her books emphasize similar teachings regarding sadhanas--basically healthy practices to keep ourselves aligned with nature etc.
This book was a delight, truly. She explores things from a spiritual context, but she includes lots of stories of people she has helped and other sources that are more scientific. There are many ideas I'd like to explore further from different poses to recipes she recommends.
