Book Description

18 Jun 2009
This yoga dictionary has no competitors in the English-language market, and will become essential equipment for every yoga teacher and many students. Some 1200 terms and more are glossed, and many postures are illustrated with a thumbnail sketch. There are also explanations of English terms. Pronunciation rules are given, and Sanskrit loses its threat to puzzle the mind. There is no bias towards any one school of yoga; the aim has been inclusion throughout.

3.0 out of 5 stars my review 10 Jan 2011
By C. Ford
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is very useful if you wish to translate sanskrit into english. I wanted it to translate english into sanskrit, which is does not do. If there had been any mention of the book being one way translation only, I would not have bought it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic must-have book 23 Jan 2013
By Emma
Great book- unlike what the previous reviewer stated this book does actually provide entries starting both from Sanskrit and from English- just that they all come up the same letters i.e. Under the letter "A" there are entries in English, e.g. "Accomplished pose: see siddhasana" and also Sanskrit entries "Adhomukha svanasana: downward-facing dog pose".
It is easy to find the terms you are looking for and there are also illustrations throughout of some key poses.
As a student of yoga this book is proving very useful indeed- I was having to google search every pose after class in order to find either the sanskrit name or vice-versa - trying to find the English equivalent and now I am able to take my research off of the internet and back into the book. It is a very comprehensive guide to almost 1500 Sanskrit and English terms. Well worth the money.
