in this book you will find the truth about yoga - you may have been unsure in the past but here you will find what it is that yoga is all about
Godfrey Devereux is a true guru of the 21st century. Following in an age long tradition Godfrey distills the wisdom of ages in a form that is available to everyone. No more ivory towers or ashrams in the sky - this is Yoga for the modern age - cutting edge and accessible.

I am very critical of many yoga books out there, but this one won me over. If you are in search of a book to get you started with your home yoga practice, or want further explanation of what you are doing in class, get this book. You can actually use it beside you while you practice as the workouts are mapped out with tiny pictures and a pose number so you can easily get to the expanded reference page.
I found Godfrey Devereux's writing on this art/science to be in depth without going into the esoteric. I also like how he placed an asana glossary at the end according to their Sanskrit name.

I just purchased this book along with Power Yoga by B. Birch ... As good as Birch's book is, THIS one is better! The pictures are a good size and VERY clear, and the book provides a wonderful set of series at the end to accommodate various levels of competence and also to address those moments when there just isn't quite enough time to get in a complete series. I'm sure you'll love it.

good for some more advanced students, but even then... March 30 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
The first part of the book explains some power yoga basics (quite scientific), the main part gides you through the different poses.
Each pose is displayed on 2 pages - one big photo on the left side and the series of small photos on the right side with a very brief explanation. Photos are black and white.
What I really miss in the book are a different variations for the poses! What to do when you have certain problem - how to make the pose easier...and when you are advanced - how to make it more dificult, or just have some variations in your training - this information is simply missing and therefore only 3 stars!

A great starter book Feb. 12 2011
By jcn1112 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The positions are all very well explained with detailed diagrams showing transitions. There is some good background reading at the front and a selection of sequences at the back to give you a routine. I originally borrowed it from the library, loved it so much I had to get my own copy.

Clear and Concise Aug. 2 2010
By PLK - Published on Amazon.com
This yoga book spoke to me more clearly and directly than any other. There is an honesty and depth based on Godfrey's extensive experience. There is much more information in the text portion of the book than one might think for its size. Though Godfrey recommends his later books for their sensitivity over this one, I highly recommend it if you are exploring Ashtanga Vinyasa, power yoga, dynamic yoga, Anusara etc....
