This review is from: The Spiritual Teachings of Yoga (Paperback)
This book was recommended to me by my yoga teacher and as I like to know the 'mechanics inside the box' for most subjects in my life, I bought it. I hoped to gain more understanding of how yoga can affect or enhance my life but this book did not help in that way. It did enlighten me to the origins and beliefs of yoga but I could probably have achieved this more readily elsewhere.
This book contains great depth and detail on yoga history and philosophy. The text on the back cover explains this and I should have taken more care when reading it.
I found it a difficult read and must admit to skipping a lot of the translation material. Overall, I'm afraid I didn't enjoy it and it failed to help achieve my goal but, again, I should have considered it more carefully.
