Format: Paperback
This is the first book on this subject. I am a serious yoga practicioner and so far have never seen anything like this: so well connecting Ayurveda medicine knowledge with especially Hatha and Kundalini yoga. You can see that the auther is an adept, informing us about the working of prana in the subtle body. The book contains to my knowledge the most clear and complete explanation for a serious practitioner the inner alchemy of yogic transformation. This is not a book for a beginner! It explains everything about prana, ojas and tejas, vital information on pranayama, pratyahara, chakras and kundalini and all in connection with Ayurveda. This is the first book of the kind!

This book is perfect for those who already have some understanding of ayurveda/yoga/holistic health. It addresses the core principles and practices with a beautiful blend of spiritual lineage and academic rigor. This is definitely not an introductory-level book; it is a wonderful reference for those ready to move more deeply into these practices.

The kind of books I like are the ones that are tagged, underlined,and worn. That indicates that it is not just another book for another books sake. This is one of those books. Teaching or practicing yoga without knowledge of ayurveda is like teaching with some knowledge of life missing. It links us to the macrocosm aswell as understanding our constitution beyond the physical body and is a must buy and study. It helps us to understand what we have to re-wire on an individual level to make progress on the spiritual path. Camella Nair - Author of Aqua Kriya Yoga

words fall short when it comes to write a review on Dr. David Frawley's work. simply the best. No one has better understanding on the subject than him. I have been following ayurveda and yoga in bits and pieces. this whole book consolidated my knowledge and taught me the right sequence of things. for example, doing pranayama when your ojas is low, is killing yourself..

I wanted an introduction to the Psychology of Yoga. This book delivered. It's simple and easy to digest. Yet it covers a lot of ground. It's also written by a Westerner for a Western audience. For those intereseted in the mental health benefits of yoga, this book is for you.

The book starts off with a whole lot of information and not a whole lot of explanation. Not the best book to start with on your Ayurveda journey but definitely useful.

The problem I have with Ayurveda is that based on the body type descriptions I don't fit into any of the categories. Until one can diagnose which body type one is, the rest of the information is not very useful. All the treatments are type specific.

In the 1980's I read a lot of Depak Chopra and that was the problem I had with his books as well. If you teach yoga this book will give you enough background info to field basic questions about Ayurveda.

The topic of Ayurveda has been mentioned on my blog a few times, but this is the first book I've read + reviewed with a major focus on the topic - exciting! I'm glad to say that David Frawley's book doesn't disappoint.

As you can gleam from the title, this book isn't purely about the medical science of Ayurveda, but specifically Ayurveda's relation + inherent connection to yoga.

Ayurveda is the Vedic science of healing for both body and mind. Yoga is the Vedic science of Self-realization that depends upon a well-functioning body and mind ... Yoga and Ayurveda are sister sciences that developed together and repeatedly influenced each other throughout history.

Frawley does a wonderful job of introducing the true purposes of Yoga and Ayurveda, as well as how they work in-tandem at all times. He does a great job of introducing Sanskrit terminology without it being overwhelming. The first few chapters may seem like a huge cascade of information + it can take some time to absorb how it all links together, but Frawley is quick to reference other sections of the book that are helpful.

As someone who has studied/read about/practiced both Yoga and a bit of Ayurveda for over a decade, Frawley's book is a highly appreciated addition to my bookshelf - the type of book I'll happily read + reference again + again.

If this was the first book I'd ever read about Yoga, I'd probably be a bit confused and overwhelmed, but if you know a little bit about Yoga (or Ayurveda) + would like to learn a bit more about Ayurveda (or Yoga), this is the book to start with.

Note: I highly appreciate Frawley's emphasis on all aspects of Yoga, not just asana (which is the most popular aspect in Western culture) - thank you, David. :)
