Useful for those wishing to master breath control
on 12 October 2001
The many descriptive photos (most of Iyengar in a loin cloth) are useful in helping to pin point exact position of hands and body for each of the breathing exercises. However, there aren't enough medical descriptions of techniques used. Not the greatest book on pranayama available, but still a useful aid especially for yoga instructors and students.
