A good primer on ashtanga but please, please fix typos in the Kindle edition
on April 15, 2016
I read this as part of my yoga teacher training program curriculum. I have a lot of respect for Birch and her experience. Her axioms are insightful and eye-opening to how chronic athletic training causes imbalance in the body and how the heat and strength generated in regular ashtanga practice can help bring the body back into balance, restore flexibility and build strength.
What I do not understand are the copious and chronic typographical errors throughout the kindle edition. It seemed to me that the text was automatically transcribed without an editor to even look over it (!?) It was distracting at best and at worst unprofessional. Please fix it!
