"An illuminating exploration of the psychological and spiritual dimensions of the yoga asanas. It is an important contribution to weaving the asanas into the eight-fold fabric of Hatha yoga."
—Charles Eisenstein, author of The Yoga of Eating
"Butera's hard work and clarity about the subject are felt by us all. Yoga asanas ultimately lead to an expansion of consciousness. The psychophysical practice of yoga is the main focus."
—Dr. Jayadeva and Hansaji Yogendra, directors of The Yoga Institute in Mumbai, India
"Butera's work with modern yoga techniques integrates asanas and hygiene, contemporary psychology and stress management, with ancient philosophy and spiritual truths to promote a broader and deeper understanding of the physical, emotional, and spiritual health that yoga offers the sincere student. As a teacher and a counselor, Butera is the teacher I have been waiting for!"
—Caroline M. Thomas, LCSW and yoga teacher
"Butera is one of our strongest presenters-that is why he has been a core teacher in our year-long program and why he is one of our retreat leaders going on ten years strong. For depth, openness, and clarity, he is a good choice."
—John Meyer, director of educational programs at Pendle Hill, Quaker Retreat Center
