All in all, a must for a practitioner and one of the best books; For 21 years I have practiced Yoga thanks to this book. Hailing from India, I found no other book as instructional. A couple of years earlier, I was trying to find this book but it was out of print. I would bring extra copies of it from India and distribute it here. I am glad, the publisher have awoken, they have done a great service.
The sequence in this book consists of just about 10 asanas and a few breathing techniques. This makes it ideal for the practitioner to fold the practise into 30 minutes when there is not much time. A piece of advice - if you are new to yoga it may be a bit challenging to follow the routine. Also I started with this when I was 15 years young!
Its main focus is the physical aspect of Yoga. It covers little on Pranayama though correct breathing is emphasised and outlined for every asana. There is an exclusive chapter on correct Yogic breathing. I remember and quote often an interesting narration in the book where a stressed out man during a visit feels better after breathing correctly for a few minutes.Read more ›
I have taken classes and I've read numerous books. Nothing compares to this one. Recently, my bad back returned after vanishing for almost thirty years. I had stopped doing yoga for several years. I got the book out, reread it, even though I've read it a dozen times, and began performing the asanas. Magic. Bad back gone, mild insomnia which I've also suffered from gone. I've never gotten a common cold while doing these yoga exercises...
I just spent fifteen minutes writing this. I do not know anyone associated with the book or the author. It's just something that's been a gift in my life and I felt it important to give a bit back to it.
