Format: Paperback
I owned and used this book for years until I gave it to a group of young people. They were coming to Yoga for the first time and were full of questions, both of a practical and philosophical nature. This book provides clear and comprehensive instructions on how one might perform many of the postures in Hatha Yoga. While there is no substitute for a good Yoga teacher, this book makes for a useful reference guide for home practise. There is so much more to Yoga than the practise of posture and breathing techniques and the Swami succeeds in explaining much of the philosophy without getting bogged down in categorising the indescribable. The suggestions on how to integrate Yoga practise into everyday Western living are most helpful and hopefully show that you need not be a monk to succesfully "work on your self". I am so glad to see this book back in print. I have been looking for a replacement for years since I first gave my copy away.

I bought the original hardback version of this book over 50 years ago. I have studied and taught Yoga all this time and have many good books on Yoga. However, this book is exceptional in that all the Yoga postures are very well described and demonstrated by the author in excellent photographs.

The philosophy of Yoga is described in a very straightforward way.

There are a number of progressive training schedules from beginner to advanced.

If you want to learn traditional health giving Hatha Yoga, and not some made up modern version, get this book.

It's been a while since I did yoga and I bought this book intending to take it up again. I was dismayed to find that the book takes one straight into extreme postures with no gradual build up. Because of this, I feel the book is definitely NOT for beginners. or at least, should be used with an experienced teacher to guide them.
On the plus side, it is very good at explaining the theory of yoga.

I have never found a better book on yoga anywhere. This book is written by a great teacher who came from India. It has a comprehensive set of yoga postures, breathing excercises and meditation. The only flaw in the book is that one should study under a teacher. For those who cannot find a teacher or would rather work alone, I strongly suggest working with inner guides. A good book on this is The Inner Guide Meditation, or a similar book. A teacher is necessary, because contrary to what others may say, yoga and other spiritual excercises do work. They work for anyone who has the time and patience to do the excercises even for a short time. Results may take years to come, but they do come. But given a teacher to see the results through which can be frightening at times, this is an excellent book and I strongly recommend it.
