By Mark Damir on March 27, 2009
Format: Hardcover
This book is the perfect introduction to yoga!

No one can read any version of the Yoga Sutras quickly or casually and thereby claim to have an understanding of this deep, esoteric and sometimes mentally exhausting field of study. As a long-time student and practitioner of yoga I found Dennis Hill's book to be a perfect introduction to this ancient science. While scholarly and replete with essential Sanskrit terminology this book is accessible and user-friendly. It can be read and studied with delight and appreciation. I would describe it as a plain-language explanation of a difficult and often bewilderingly complex subject.

Today, popular schools of yoga are mostly associated with physical fitness and exercise and many students believe fitness and health are the ultimate aim of "doing yoga". Most yoga teachers know that bodily health and strength, while valuable, are still not the ultimate aim of yoga practice. But most teachers also know that their students are not typically interested in the complex, terminology-laden text known as the Yoga Sutras. Peace, steadiness of mind and deep understanding of our place and purpose in the world are concepts and attributes far more elusive and difficult to attain than physical fitness. But how do we get there from here?

For the beginner, and especially for students training to be yoga instructors, no better map can be found on the path to understanding than this one. Dennis Hill is a teacher of meditation and yoga philosophy, with students in the Central Valley of California and elsewhere. He embodies the wisdom and insight that are the goals of yoga study and practice.

This is a straightforward translation from a teacher who has lived the practices contained in the book. In addition you can find a podcast at SYI Yoga Sutras of the author teaching a class from this text. This is a great resource to learn about Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.

This is one of many translations I have come across, but Mr. Hill's translations and interpretations are straightforward and seem intent upon maintaining the integrity of the Sutras.
