it was amazing
Recommended to Shashi by: fellow yoga teachers
Recommended for: especially women and yogis
Read in November, 2007

The intro of this book is amazing and beautiful. She talks about the human heart and how it is one of the first things to form in an embryo, how it forms before the brain, and maintains it's own rhythm til just before birth. I highly value her interpretations of the yoga sutras as she is the first woman to translate this 2500 year old text, and because she's a yogi of the last 30 years.
I went to a workshop with her May 17-18,2008 and feel extremely inspired and challenged. I am starting a reading group around this book to support one another. If your interested in doing an online discussion too, please let me know!
