I am only up to the Yamas and Niyamas, but so far its a great read.
Christina has obviously put a lot of work into this book. I like the way she frames the book on the building of the Ashram, it invites you to think about things differently.
I also love that her references are usually her own learnings. Some books have a reference list so long that I feel the entire book is a summary of other books.
Wish she lived in Sydney Australia. I would go to her classes for sure. I have ordered her first book, as this one has been so good.
