When the student is ready… THE TEACHER APPEARS.

For anyone longing to deepen their yoga practice comes The Teacher Appears, an illustrated journal of 108 prompts. Includes celebrity guest prompts from such luminaries as Krishna Das, Elena Brower, Jack Kornfield, Sharon Gannon, Shiva Rea, Seane Corn, Schuyler Grant, and more.

Acclaimed author Brian Leaf guides readers to deepen their yoga practice with dristi, mudra, and pranayama; to explore their uncomfortable edges; to cultivate intuition; and, simply, to long for the divine, as they experience the true meaning of yoga.
