   and I have to say the illustrations are not the greatest, but the text
I got the kindle version, and I have to say the illustrations are not the greatest, but the text is very well-written in English. Many yoga teachers, for example, don't have time to explain the basic principles of the practice. The emphasis is on how the breath and the postures work together.

   Yoga phyosophy put in a blunt, nonpretentious way
Really good book. Rather, I see it as a reunion of relevant concepts and lines of thoughts of yoga that should be read and studied more than once. However, I am not yet an expert on the content of this article. I enjoy this book as an additional source of information and exposure to different perspectives on the phylosophy, as I normally approach all my readings on yoga with the diversity of thoughts, schools, and traditions, he said. Overall, I think it's a great reading that offers a lot of interesting information put in a blunt, nonpretentious way, Raymond said.

   The Heart of Yoga
Added meaning to practice, Coach. I'm a beginner and this book is deepening my understanding of what I'm doing, not only guiding me through asanas and breathing, but it helps me understand the how and why of practice, he said.

   Wonderful book to deepen your yoga practice
The book is a great introduction to yoga. It's great to see people still talking about it.

   In the middle of the book now
I bought it for teacher training. Some are more complicated than others. The definitions are too short and do not apply to all calls to 911 calls. It gives a basic understanding of how the tax works. However, more research is needed to fully grasp what the author is trying to convey.

   There is a reason this book is a favorite for yoga instructors and students alike
There is a reason this book is a favorite among yoga instructors and students alike. This book is great introduction to yoga beyond the mat and a wonderful guide to developing your own individual practice. Pauley, one of the book's co-authors, said: "This was a great read.

   Loved this
This book is by far the best. The practice of yoga, as opposed to a physical exercise, teaches you how to live your life. There is a balance between asanas, breathing, alignment and yogic philosophy, he said. It's great to hear from people who have used it.

   Should be required text
I recommend this book to all my teachers because it was recommended to me during one of my teacher training. It's just that the book is not required reading. Only required reading, other than our manual, is Iyengar's Light on Yoga and Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. Personally, I think this book should be required reading. The book touches on everything from Ashtanga to Bikram, from the ancient Chinese medicine to the present day. It provides good detail for some parts of the suit. It's great to be back home, says Dr. Goin. nan

   Read this FIRST before you read the sutras!
I've been a yogi for almost a decade and a half, and I'm currently teaching at a clinic in Dayton, Ohio. It was a book that changed my world. Well, first of all, everybody tells us yogis to read Patanjali's Sutra. It's great introduction to yoga everything and then at the end you get a real world translation of the sutras." The writer says he learned the Vedas through a lineage of yogi's, rather than through scholarly translations.

   Classic and for good reason.
This book is essential for anyone interested in a deeper understanding of yoga. The two masters of the craft communicated in a down to earth manner from a teacher who chose to embrace his impressive lineage. With so much information coming out about dodgy gurus, and with so many people signalling with spiritual trappings, T. K. Desikachar is the real deal, primarily because he is not a guru nor makes claims to be one, but instead is clearly only interested in passing on quality information to the best of his ability. Yoga, much like everything else evolves with time, but there are some parts of the heart of yoga that may be less relevant or even unsuitable for some students, Raymond said. I know I got a lot from it, Tunick said.
