IngredientsYoga and Ayurveda together form a complete approach for optimal health, vitality and higher awareness. Yoga & Ayurveda reveals to us the secret powers of the body, breath, senses, mind and chakras. More importantly, it unfolds transformational methods to work on them through diet, herbs asana, pranayama and meditation. This is the first book published in the West on these two extraordinary subjects and their interface. It has the power to change the lives of those who read and apply it.

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. :)
