Modern science and ancient wisdom use different language to express reality. Ancient wisdom tells us the soul is never born or dies. Modern science tell us that energy cannot be created or destroyed. Ancient wisdom tells us the same spirit will incarnate in another living being. Modern science tell us our ancestor’s genes are present in us. Ancient wisdom tells us at the soul level we have the same composition. Modern science tell us we are all made up of invisible atoms, that we are the same on a microcosmic level. Ancient wisdom tells us the invisible soul can be seen through a living being. Modern science tells us E=mc2, that energy can be transformed into matter. We need to understand the language of both modern science and ancient wisdom, and find a bridge between the two, instead of label the ancient expression as superstition. Excerpt from A Complete Yoga Manual by Ivy Xie-McIsaac (Rupa).

A Complete Yoga Manual began as a Teacher Training Manual for the Traditional Hatha Yoga Teacher Training at Wishingtree Yoga. From Rupa’s initial writing of the manual, and my proofreading, the manual, four years later has blossomed into a book. With Rupa’s inspired yet practical way she guides the reader through an indepth theoretical discussion of Yoga, its roots and various kinds, and settles into an extensive presentation of the practice of Hatha Yoga.

Rupa’s Chinese background and training has given her a natural understanding of this ancient eastern wisdom. Living, studying and teaching in Canada has provided her the opportunity to develop the practice in a modern western way. She hopes for this book to be a bridge between east and west, modern and ancient, theory and practice.

This Complete Yoga Manual that Rupa has written with all her heart, soul, love, devotion, hard work, and knowledge, has the power to awaken a higher perception of Yoga, which liberates the soul and connects us with the Divine. Enjoy the journey!
