5.0 out of 5 stars Practical teaching tips. Well rounded content and well written, 5 Feb. 2014
I love this book as it's grounded in practical knowledge from the authors teaching experience. I like the simplicity and economy of the language so it can be easily referenced and picked up and put down and it's written in a very neutral open minded manner.

There's some useful techniques for teaching ujjayi breathing and bandhas which are often overlooked in classes despite being the foundation of the practice. Giving some step by step instructions to guide students through with some alternative languaging and suggestions that may help.

One thing i found very useful was a full sanskrit count of the primary series for reference when I am not able to practice with a teacher and need a reminder of the breath and sequencing.

Would recommend this to any vinyasa teacher not just ashtanga.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, Excellent, performance, 7 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not much needs to be said about this portable speaker.
Simple, without all the unnecessary extras.
Durable and quality construction.
Brilliant sound for the size, (place it near a corner for more bass)
Can't comment on battery life yet..
Seems expensive, but you definitely get what you pay for

5.0 out of 5 stars Best value for money purchase ive made in a while, 28 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Saw a good review of this on the net and i'm going backpacking this summer so it seemed perfect. It's much smaller and louder than i expected it to be, and really good value for money. in diameter its roughly 6cm and about 4cm in height. the built in audio lead means you don't need anything extra and even comes with its own little pouch for packing. Plus as for audio quality i couldn't ask for more in one speaker and the bass is impressive.

i'd reccomend getting the usb-plug charger too which means you can charge your ipod and this and save individual charger space. Overall thoroughly impressed.
