Very simple and insightful book for anyone interested in Yoga. I liked this book particularly because it lists the beneficial aspects beside every pose. This book continues to change my life each and every day. I highly recommend it!

It is a pity I haven't discovered this book in the beginning of my yoga practice, the main postures and breathing techniques are described in details, with the help of many pictures, the common faults and the possible variations. The philosophy of yoga is pretty well explained without getting too much into details, so it is ideal for somebody who wants to discover yoga and is also a useful reference book when getting more experienced.

This book touches on many traditional aspects of yogic practice. If you want to know more about the cleansing rituals and fasting, this is a good book to accompany you on a path with an experienced teacher.

اَئوم، اُم. والاترین و آرمانی ترین مانترا می باشد
ام شبدارهمن یا صوتی که جهان را می آفریند، نام باستانی برای تئوری «صدای انفجار بلند» دانشمندان امروزی می باشد. ام همه صداها، همه ارتعاشات و همه مانتراها است.

This is a very thorough overview of yoga, including basic postures and their benefits, yogic philosophy, and diet. It is a great text to refer back to from time to time, as I often do.

This is a beautiful book in the Eyewitness series that lays out the basics of the teachings I gathered from my time at the Sivananda Ashram in Grass Valley, CA. I love this style of yoga.

I don't believe you could do better than this book for a practical introduction to hatha yoga. I refer to it often for years.

I have moved onto my next new pursuits- guitar and yoga. Reading this as an introduction, the whole philosophy is very intriguing.

Quyển sách như một giáo trình về Yoga, nhờ có nó mà hiểu biết và sự gắn bó với bộ môn này của mình được bền hơn vì những điểm về Yoga nó đề cập đến rất chi tiết.

Không như những cuốn Yoga mình từng đọc chỉ đơn thuần mô tả động tác, sách này đề cập đến cả thiền định, cách thở, ăn uống, tư duy tích... theo lối sống của một yogi.

Chưa kể đến phần nhận thức về cơ thể con người có rất rất nhiều lớp thú vị và có phần huyền bí vì mình chưa chứng thực được và nó rất khác với y học phương tây (về Linh hồn,
