This decade-long labor of love approaches yoga from the historical perspective beginning with the classic Guru-Disciple relationship and documenting the first "yoga class," which took place in 1917. Goldberg’s style leans toward academia, rather than self-help, as he tracks the progress of yoga—and the gurus who made it happen—as it evolved in India as a way of life and a system of health.

Goldberg includes historical photos that beautifully complement his exceptional writings and illustrate the depth of this fascinating subject. The Path of Modern Yoga is a celebration of yoga in body, mind, and spirit. This book will especially touch the hearts of readers who love history or love the path of yoga.
