Breathing life into yoga practice,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Heart of Yoga: Developing Personal Practice: Developing a Personal Practice (Paperback)
This book by a respected practioner is valuable for several reasons. One, it emphasises the role the breath plays in bringing the asana to 'life', drawing on traditional sources and texts. Second, it offers a simply laid out translation of Patanjalis yoga sutras - accessible to a beginner. Third it offers an explanation of kundalini missing in other texts.
The only curiosity or question mark is, why is the translation of 'ha' and 'tha' at variance with the majority of translations and texts? Was this just an oversight or error?
An accessible book, combining philosophy and practice without 'dumbing-down'
