Condition: Used: Good
Comment: This book is not too bad not too good. This is a used book, the condition is considered good because it is still readable. Some pages may be folded as book markers and some pages may have writings or highlighting. The book overall may be a bit beat up due it being used and read.

Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Rosen, a nationally known yoga teacher and contributing editor to Yoga Journal, has written an excellent guide to the yogic art of pranayama, which translates from Sanskrit as the lengthening of the breath or control of the life force. Due to its powerful effects, pranayama is traditionally learned under the guidance of a teacher. This book provides a safe introduction to pranayama for modern yoga students. Drawing on classic Indian texts, Rosen clearly explains the complex philosophy underlying pranayama. He leads the reader on a journey of self-discovery by providing several interesting exercises to develop body and breath awareness. Strongly influenced by modern yoga master BKS Iyengar's Light on Pranayama (1981), Rosen incorporates many of Iyengar's innovations, such as the use of yoga props and reclined positions in his treatise. Full of practical advice, this is an expert and accessible introduction to the mystic art of controlled respiration. Jane Tuma

Review

"Richard Rosen's new book The Yoga of Breath is a welcome addition to the few pranayama literature issued in the past decade or so; it will help dedicated yogis keep their spiritual instruments properly strung and finely tuned." —Yoga Journal 

"Richard Rosen has written a beautiful and substantial work on pranayama. It is at once modern and classical. Brilliantly engaging and accessible, it is a guide to practice that can become a companion for life. I recommend it unequivocally to students and teachers alike." —Patricia Walden, cofounder of the B. K. S. Iyengar Yoga Studio 

"Pranayama is a vitally important part of traditional Hatha-Yoga. Richard Rosen has rendered a most valuable yeoman service by making this widely neglected practice accessible to Western practitioners. I highly recommend this work." —George Feuerstein, Ph.D., author of The Shambhala Guide to Yoga 

"Richard Rosen acts as our pranayama tour guide by honestly sharing his own travels, both inward and outward. And he has done it the way all great teachers do: He points to the map and then makes sure we go on our own journey and don't just keep looking at his finger. The Yoga of Breath shows us how to find time, how to work with our mind, cultivate patience, experience more spaciousness, and be playful—all that by breathing in and breathing out. I'm inspired!" —Cyndi Lee, director of the Om Yoga Center
