Thorough and interesting, but crafted more for the serious scholar and practitioner. Background knowledge is essential.

Beautiful and detailed exploration of the subtle anatomy. A must for yoga practitioners exploring the chakras. Includes amazing illustrations. Full color inserts in center are amazing. Sahasrara Chakra illustration is perfect for Face Swapping (an added bonus for the younger set).

The book presents the ancient Vedic learnings of Yoga in a simple and easy to understand language. Helps to understand how to use the left and right hemispheres of the brain and build creative intelligence through regular practice. Also throws light on the use of the Cerebrum ( hemispheres), Cerebellum ( lower brain, mechanical) and Cerebral Cortex (upper brain, open to change) to enable transformation via Yoga techniques.
3/30/10 I started reading this book about a week ago and find it difficult to follow. I have skipped large sections filled with Hindi concepts and vocabulary that are impossible to fully grasp. Not very relatable so far. Hoping for a bit more history.
Book 10/50.

For yoga. Very informational for those interested in the chakras AS WELL AS the different branches of kundalini yoga.
