“By itself, this book is a master yoga class… It changed me.”
BLAKE BELTRAM cofounder of MINDBODY
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
Books ordered from LEVITYoGA SHOP will include copies personally signed by Peter.
“Terrific yoga books, like terrific teachers, reveal ourselves to ourselves… Gravity & Grace is like having a teacher by your side.”
MICHELLE JACOBI professor of yoga, University of South Florida

PETER STERIOS is an inner explorer. Drawn to yoga as a young man, he studied intensively with a master teacher for 20 years. At 39, Peter broke his back, facing an invasive surgery with no guarantees. With no outward path to rely on, or the physical practices he had learned, Peter went inward. There, he found new teachers: Gravity & Grace.
Peter has been part of the global yoga community for over four decades as a teacher, author, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. He is the founder of MANDUKA™, creator of LEVITYoGA™, taught yoga at the Obama White House for 3 years, and spoke as a wellness expert at the Pentagon for the US Marine Corps in 2018.
