Product Description

Review

Ana T. Forrest Founder of Forrest Yoga and owner of the Forrest Yoga Circle in Santa Monica Baron's fresh and synergistic approach to yoga has excited and turned on many people who previously thought yoga had nothing to offer them. He has contributed greatly to spreading the benefits of yoga in the United States.

About the Author

Baron Baptiste is the son of two of America's yoga pioneers. He began to seriously study yoga at age twelve and trained extensively in all the major traditions before creating Baptiste Power Yoga in the mid-eighties. Baptiste has trained both celebrities and athletes, including Helen Hunt, Randall Cunningham, Raquel Welch, and Elisabeth Shue, and for four years he was Peak Performance Specialist for the Philadelphia Eagles. He divides his time between his yoga studio in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and Sundance, Utah.

Format: Hardcover
This book is very well written and I've not been able to put it down since I got it. I'm in the middle of my fourth week of the 40 day program and things have been unbelievably smooth. The practices have awesome flow from one to the next. The progressions are so natural. When I saw "40 days to transformation," I conjured up some grueling process, something I'd force myself to get through and then move on. But around the end of the first week I realized these 40 days are transforming my life. The physical changes have been powerful, I've dropped weight, stress and a lot of tension. The lessons I've learned about myself are permanent. They'll be with me always!

I have been practicing yoga at the Baptiste Studios for over 4 years. I used to be a gym hog and since discovering Baptiste, I have all but given up the gym. The book shows a person how to get into the yoga little by little. I think it would be frustrating not to be able to go to an actual studio with Baron and his teachers and this book offers something special to those people especially.
It is difficult to explain what this yoga can do for you-it is so multi-faceted. Because I have the luxury of actually going to class, I don't really do the yoga on my own, but I can guarantee you that if you do what Baron says in this book, in terms of the postures, diet, etc, you really will change. And if you ever are in the greater Boston area, definitely check out one of the studios. There is one in Boston and one in Cambridge.
Also, just to set the record straight, there were never any crazy happenings at the Cambridge studio as one reader has described. The Cambridge studio is the most peaceful, beautiful place I know. There is no place I feel better or safer. I think I know the class this reader is talking about where someone voluntarily left following a disagreement-it was a little strange, but I recall no handcuffs and no arrests. Maybe I missed something but yeah, I was definitely there on that day. I think that reader was really exaggerating for some reason-strange for a Harvard student to feel the need to do so-tho the commute from NYC to Cambridge must be stressful and daunting!!!! Huh????
The book is a must have for beginning yogis especially. You will be transformed if you make the committment. If not now, when?

Baron has a knack for bringing yoga to the people in a way that seems real and authentic. This book presents a personal improvement program that goes beyond what we think of as "yoga". It's simple, straightfoward, and REAL. Set aside your expectations that a yoga program should involve a lot of esoteric Sanskrit and terminology and Hindu fables. Real yoga is about real life. 40 Days worked for me on every level - spiritually, physically, intellectually, nutritionally. Baron knows what he's doing, and he makes it so simple.
Any leader who speaks real truth will have detractors, and Baron is no exception. But beyond the drama is a real authentic message that comes straight from the heart of 40 Days to Personal Revolution.

More than words and pictures, this teacher with this book, assists in taking you beyond who you thought you were. This author offers the reader the whole package through this book. I have no hesitation recommending it to any student.

Format: Hardcover
The concept of having one book that covers spiritual philosphy, detailed yoga sessions, meditation practices and alternative diet theory is a noble goal. It is difficult to execute that goal though, especially in an easy-to-read format like Baptiste tries. This book may be useful for those already with some experience in yoga, and spiritual quests, but may be disjointed for beginers.
The first part of the book lays out 12 good spiritual "laws" and is a great mixture of Eastern and Western spiritual guidelines, quoting Jesus, Buddha, Ghandi, and others. This is worthwhile reading, and may touch on a foundation for spirituality that will resonate with many Weterners. Very Intriguing, I wish there was more here.
The Yoga Vinyasas are much more difficult to follow, with over 30 pages of writing and photos showing the first 20 minute session alone. Yoga appears to be Baptiste's primary fame to date, and where most of the pages of the book focus. Video may be a better format to get Yoga across. I run one of Rodney Yee's videos (albeit with a different sequence of Vinyasas) and use Baptiste's photos and description to give me details if I don't know a pose.
The diet sections are confusing, I saw Baptiste in a lecture and I'm not sure he even understands what is written here ( was there a ghost writer helping?) Still, their focus on balance in a diet, and balance from many viewpoints (including building vs cleansing, cooling vs heating foods)is good.
The meditation emphases and "Excavation questions" are good also.
Can one have a personal revolution in 40 days with this book? The book is too new to know so stay tuned. From what I see, there needs to be significant supplements as far as reading and instruction for this to be the main catalyst for such a revolution.

I would take the 40 day challenge at a studio nearby if you really want to take on this as a life changing book. Sharing the process w others makes all the difference. I took the challenge, signed up for training and I have been at my local studio for just barely a year! Spend time with people that bring the best out of you and soar. Buy the book, find a studio teaching the challenge, give your all to the process and watch your life change :)
