Atheist Yoga is a provocative and mind-bending treatise on yoga and atheism that offers expert insight and analysis of yogic technique; it makes a detailed case for yoga's compatibility with an atheist lifestyle while at the same time explaining many of the finer points of the art. Atheist Yoga is a substantive look into the art of yoga, which delves deeply into such esoteric topics as tantra and Kundalini, as well as meditation, hatha yoga and pranayama; it seeks to decode various secrets of this ancient practice from within a very readable and aesthetically pleasing framework which readers will find both easy to understand and enjoyable on multiple levels.
The work is presented in a systematic and easy-to-understand nonfiction format, which is interspersed with five "interlude" chapters, drawn from real life, in which the author and an expert yogini engage in a far-ranging discussion touching on many of the concepts of yoga and atheism covered in the book, furthering the instruction and analysis while adding additional color and depth to the material.
Atheist Yoga is likely to be a thought provoking and enjoyable read for anyone interested in yoga, consciousness, atheism, philosophy and the unconscious mind, and is an essential addition to any complete library on the subject of yoga.
