“By itself, this book is a master yoga class… It changed me.”


Gravity & Grace: How to Awaken Subtle Body and the Healing Power of Yoga. Book by Peter Sterios

About the book

In Peter Sterios’ new book “Gravity & Grace: How to Awaken Your Subtle Body and the Healing Power of Yoga”, you will not find advocacy for any particular yoga style or tradition. This is not a how-to manual instructing you how to shape your body into the ideal pose in the ideal way.

This book teaches how to let yourself be guided by subtle energy and the sensations your create as you move on your mat. It will lend an added dimension to the next leg of your yoga journey, and a new perspective with the potential to transform your practice.

While it does offer instruction centered on common yoga poses, its essence is less about how to “do” the pose and more how to “be” the pose, engaging all levels of yourself—physical, mental, and spiritual—and both of your “yoga bodies”: the physiological body of flesh and bone, and the movement of subtle energy within it.

“We all come to yoga as we are, accompanied by the best teacher we could ever have: the teacher within. Within this book, may you find the tools you need to hear that inner teacher, and the encouragement to let it guide you.”
Peter Sterios
