Here are a few words from the Foreword by Paul Fox, Chair of BWY.

Vani Devi is a highly creative person being not only a teacher of yoga and meditation, but also a musician, artist and writer. In an age when everyone seems to be trying to carve out a yoga niche, Vani Devi stands for diversity, creativity and inclusion in her approach to yoga. ... I wish I'd had this book when I started out on my yoga journey. There is something in it for everyone and sections which blend science and yoga theory provide some ''wow'' moments.

Comments from Karen Jones, Yoga Teacher.

Yoga Footsteps is a wonderful compendium and companion. Vani Devi has poured so much knowledge and information into this book. I cannot recommend it enough as a wonderful resource for both teachers and students. Inspiring and beautifully illustrated, this book contains so many varied and creative sequences, all thoroughly tried and tested by the author and adaptable both for beginners and experienced students.

There are sections on all aspects of yoga from philosophy to cutting edge scientific research. An absolutely fabulous mine of information.

'Yoga Footsteps' is written and illustrated by Vani Devi.

Yoga Sequences Companion by Vani Devi
Review in Spectrum

The Journal for the British Wheel of Yoga

Yoga Sequences is a compilation of Van Devi's last three books, with added sequence. It has input from many BWY teachers.

The new book is an excellent, comprehensive guide to sequences, and is a great 'go to' resource for teachers, students and for home practice.

It features clear instructions and easy to follow illustrations.

Yoga Sequences Companion by Van Devi

68 yoga sequences with additional ideas to compliment your practice. These include breath work, background information and meditations. 160 A4 pages in alternating dual colours. Perfect bound.

Vani Devi has home-produced over 1.000 of her last two books, 'Yoga Sequences, Book 2' and 'Yoga Expanded & Simplified'. This has been time consuming and impractical. Compiling these two books, adding another 15 sequences and improving production all round seemed an attractive alternative. Yoga Sequences Companion will also be available as an ebook.

From the Foreword by Sam Settle, Director of the Prison Phoenix Trust: 'As I practice and follow her clear and uplifting illustrations, I feel more connected to the natural world. Nothing is lost or watered down by this approach. On the contrary, if you are feeling serious, heavy and overly analytical, the images and simplicity allow your mind to relax and feel light. This can lead to a deeper experience of yoga.'

'Yoga Sequences Companion' is written and illustrated by Vani Devi.

Yoga Expanded and Simplified by Vani Devi

Review in Yoga & Health Magazine - March 2010

"A wonderful compilation of essays, tips, mediations, sequences and information on all aspects of Yoga practice, including simple breathing techniques, asanas, relaxation and techniques to quiet the mind. Illustrated with black and white drawings and lovely woodcuts, this is a treasure trove for student and teacher alike. A book to rummage in and return to again and again! "

Yoga Expanded and Simplified by Van Devi (DISCONTINUED)

We have some books remaining.

"I have attempted to communicate the abundance of inspirational material manifesting from the minds of yoga teachers, as this ancient path of wisdom and healing continues to evolve. I have presented this in ways that I hope will be helpful to yoga teachers and complete beginners".

Vani Devi, 2009


"This new book by Vani Devi will be welcomed by yoga teachers and students alike. Its comprehensive and understandable format will be a useful adjunct at any home or class.

I liked the way it related to Tai-Qui and Qigong, which is close to my heart!

Yoga is evolving to accommodate the needs and abilities of all. The word yoga can be translated to mean to join or unite and I feel this has been demonstrated admirably by Van Devi in this book."

Yoga Sequences Book 2 by Vani Devi

Yoga Sequences, Book 2 by Van Devi (DISCONTINUED)

We have some books remaining.

The Foreword is by Sandy Chubb, Director of the Prison Phoenix Trust (a charity for promoting the teaching of Yoga and Meditation in prisons).

It is produced throughout by Vani Devi. It is A5 spiral bound with 114 pages, 26 of which are A4 pull-outs. Everything from the first book of sequences is included in this book. There are an additional 16 sequences some of which are very long.

It is illustrated throughout by pictures of animals doing various postures. It is made visually interesting by using different coloured prints on pastel shades of paper. My work with adults with special needs has influenced me to write for the average person. The language is as simple as possible and although I love Sanskrit words I have not used many. My biggest reward is being told that Young Offenders in prison enjoy using my books.

Comments from 'Yoga and Health' magazine, June 2007
A home produced, spiral bound booklet, packed full of interesting and unusual sequences, clearly illustrated with fun additions of various animals. Written by an experienced Yoga teacher who shares just some of the tips and ideas she has gleaned during her years of teaching. Unlike the many glossy Yoga books on the market nowadays, this book offers substance and variety. Perfect for students and teachers alike.
