I would recommend this to anyone who wants clear authentic instructions in yoga from this Tibetan tradition. The short sessions make it easier to integrate into a busy routine than many other yoga practices.

A much clearer addition to the Yantra Yoga library 31 Mar. 2014
By Stratohound - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book provides a clearer and more detailed explanation and demonstration of the 18 preliminary exercises and 25 basic yantras in the yoga system taught by Namkhai Norbu. The first book provided line drawings made from photos and a terse explanation of the movements based on the Tibetan root text. Together with the DVD series, the first book (which gives the very logical variations on the 25 basic poses) was sufficient for a dedicated practitioner with some background in hatha yoga to work things out for themselves safely and in accordance with the teachings.

The new book gives a much clearer, better-illustrated, and comprehensive explanation of the 25 basic yantras. What is particularly useful are the various tips and suggestions the authors make about adapting the yantra to your physical limits (weight, age, stiffness, etc.) so that you are able to practice the yantra and obtain the benefits (which are every real and which manifest themselves very quickly) without feeling that your opractice is somehow inferior or incomplete, or just not as good as the much younger and more limber models whose photographs appear in the book.

I would recommend using this book with the DVD sets, as it is a bit difficult to actually receive instruction in these yantra from one of Namkhai Norbu's teachers.

Clear, vital instruction. 12 Oct. 2013
By Palden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you know of Yantra Yoga, there is no need to discuss it's key role in the cultivation of meditation experience. Rather, what stands out with this yoga manual is it's extraordinary clarity of instruction. The text and photography that guide you through the sequences, breath and posture, is crystalline in method and intention. Enjoy!

Fantastic introduction to Yantra Yoga 16 April 2014
By the yogist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This beautifully designed book is a great introduction to an ancient system of Tibetan Yoga that seems to provide so much benefit in modern times. The book is amazingly designed with beautiful color illustrations, easy to follow instructions, clear and in depth descriptions of what Yantra Yoga is and instructions on the movements, as well as an entire section wonderfully illustrated for warm ups exercises that cannot be found in any other yoga text I have used. From this book you can understand that the system of Yantra Yoga is unique and unlike any other yoga system you have encountered in a yoga market saturated with so many different forms, real and not so real. Also there are recommended sessions with a variety of times based on the schedule of the user, so you can do longer sessions and shorter, and all are complete within themselves. This book is also a great compliment for the video, Yantra Yoga the Tibetan Yoga of Movement, which I also own. Using these 2 tools together can help to enable someone to follow and develop some sort of Yantra Yoga practice. What I did notice was that I found that once reading the book and watching the video, I kind of longed to find a class where I could learn from a qualified instructor, as both Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, the author of the original text and holder of this lineage of Yantra Yoga, and Fabio Andrico, one of the 2 main international instructors and author of this text, recommend. I looked around on the internet and did discover a website called yantrayoga.org that has listings of classes around the world. As far as books on yoga, this book rates as the top one in my library at this time, and therefore the system of yantra yoga is something I am so happy to have discovered and hope I can pursue more in depth. Kudos to Chögyal Namkhai Norbu for bringing this text into the modern age and Fabio Andrico for providing us with this marvelous, accessible text!

Clarity of writing, illustration and book design 8 Mar. 2014
By Vicki Sidley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book lays out the preparatory movements for "Yantras" (yoga postures/breath/sequences) and the Yantras themselves very clearly. The instructions are beautifully written and the photographs aptly illustrate the actions.
The practice itself is powerful, and the book a powerful teaching tool. Many thanks to the holders of this lineage of yoga practice and to the authors of this book.

the practical aspects have been addressed pretty well; it was expected and it has been ... 22 Nov. 2014
By Namta Gupta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
are spread in different nooks and corners of the continent of Asia. Even India, where the birth of Yoga actually took place, has around 25 variations! This is a book that brings to fore an essentially a different version of Yoga called ‘Tibetan Yoga’ and its various aspects for the benefit of Yoga enthusiasts. A reading of the book proves that it is comprehensive in all aspects and has been written with precision. And this is no surprise because a Yoga practitioner himself has penned this book to teach the nuance of this practice. Hence, the practical aspects have been addressed pretty well; it was expected and it has been delivered!
The best part of the book is the usage of pictures to illustrate the movements. And no it is not just the final postures that have found a place in the book; in fact right from warm ups to preliminary positions have been pictorially represented for the benefit of the end user. Add to it a very crisp written account of the precautions, warm-up exercises and the benefits that one would derive and the book is a wonderful guide for Yoga lovers.
This is great because even though several people are aware of the movements (in the East it is indeed lucrative business)but seldom are they aware of the benefits or the best way to go about them, which at times may lead to unpleasant aftereffects. The book opens with an introduction of Yantra Yoga and goes on to explain its various degrees. Even extremely difficult postures have been so easily explained that they all look achievable!
Those who find Yoga difficult or have the urge to learn it must get this book. This is one of those rare books that have the ability to remove the mystical halo of Yoga. The book does not, even once, try to present Yoga as some exotic variation of exercises and nor does it try to present it as a panacea of all health issues. The authors present the book with authority and not indulgence.

This is an educational book that has the potential to entice everyone. Even though Asia is not a stranger to Yoga, yet, a book like this is an extremely valuable addition and should be within reach of everyone everywhere.
