“True Yoga outlines the grandeur of this path we call Yoga, and how it encompasses and refines our inner and outer lives. It is a real gift.”


Nischala Joy Devi

& the Secret Power of Yoga

“This beautiful, wise, and exceedingly practical guide on how to live True Yoga is destined to be a classic. Not only should it be on every yogi’s bookshelf, but also on their mats as a roadmap for practice.”


Leza Lowitz
Author of Yoga Poems, Yoga Heart, and Here Comes The Sun

“Jennie Lee’s True Yoga reminds us that what we need to be happy isn’t outside of us, but rather an essential part of who we are. The questions she asks are provocative and if answered honestly, will lead to beautiful breakthroughs.This is a book you will want to pick up again and again.”

“Great for yoga teacher training! As a yoga teacher involved in teacher training programs, I will make this book a welcome new addition to our required reading lists.”

“True Yoga is an amazingly comprehensive book of life, each section crafted with clarity, humility, and love. Almost everywhere we go we see the physical manifestation of yoga. What we don’t see are its universal inner qualities. Jennie Lee has opened our eyes and made this often misunderstood practice remarkably accessible. Truly brilliant, life-affirming work.”


Graham Salisbury
Award winning author of Under the Blood Red Sun

“By drawing on real-world trials and tribulations, Lee brings the Sutras to life. She explores how they might help with the tedium of sitting in traffic; the sensory overload from too much time on the Internet; the breakup of a marriage; or the stress and tension of raising a family while working full time.”

In True Yoga, Jennie Lee has created a heartfelt exploration of the eight limbs that has a permanent place on my yoga bookshelf. It’s the kind of book you read not once, but over and over, cover to cover or piece by piece, always finding something new or different. No yoga experience is required, yet even seasoned practitioners will find the book worthwhile.

“A wonderfully fresh, practical and down-to-earth guide to applying the sage wisdom of the Yoga Sutras to contemporary everyday life. Even if you have several translations of the Yoga Sutras this book offers a unique perspective and deserves a place in your Yoga library.”


Donna Farhi
Author of Bringing Yoga to Life

“With True Yoga Jennie Lee interprets the ancient wisdom of yoga philosophy for a modern Western audience with clarity and simplicity to joyfully and meaningfully apply its power to cope with life’s stresses as well as enjoy its rewards. Her inspirational writing uplifts the heart, body and soul.”


Sydney Solis
Author of Storytime Yoga

“Lee’s advice is supportive and will interest those who already practice the physical aspects of yoga but are seeking deeper understanding of the philosophical and spiritual elements. It will also be useful to newcomers to yoga, providing a strong foundation for the connections between mind, body, and spirit.”

“In this work (Lee) does for the Sutras what Coleman Barks’ translations did for Rumi. She gives these ancient writings an up-to-date rendering that makes them exciting and relevant to our times.”
