Alchemical Body by David Gordon White
Book DescriptionDavid Gordon White excavates and seeks to centre within its broader Indian context the lost tradition of the medieval Siddhas. This comprehensive study draws upon the ancient Sanskrit and medieval Hindu materials and asserts medieval traditions of Hindu alchemy and "hatha yoga" were practiced by one and the same people, and that they can only be understood when viewed together.

'Yoga Sutra of Patanjali', Hardback (June 2014)
Consisting of fewer than two hundred verses written in an obscure if not impenetrable language and style, Patanjali's Yoga Sutra is today extolled by the yoga establishment as a perennial classic and guide to yoga practice. This title demonstrates both of the assumptions are incorrect.

An anthology of primary texts drawn from the diverse yoga traditions of India, greater Asia, and the West. It features elegant translations of Hindu, Buddhist, Jain, and even Islamic yogic writings, emphasizing the lived experiences to be found in the many worlds of yoga.
Sinister Yogis, Paperback (April 2011)
Focuses on yoga's practitioners. Combing through millennia of South Asia's vast and diverse literature, this title discovers that yogis are usually portrayed as wonder-workers or sorcerers who use their dangerous supernatural.
