Today, most of the 20 million yoga practitioners in the Western world don't share yoga's Eastern cultural or religious grounding, yet they feel or seek a spiritual connection from their practice. Examining yoga's philosophical underpinnings, Sophia Rising reveals how people from any faith can use yoga to create a sacred space inside themselves. Author and yogini Monette Chilson demystifies yoga and explains Sophia—Greek for Wisdom—the iconic face of the feminine divine found in Western religious traditions. Through information and example, she invites readers to listen for the inner voice of Sophia and meld their own spiritual beliefs with their yoga.
