Format: Paperback
This version is identical to Richard Hittleman's same-title paperback that's smaller is size. When I picked up this book at a used book store, I was jogging/running 4x per week, 3 miles each run. I had experienced a great relief of physical and emotional stress in the running, but I was interested in increasing my flexibility and grace. I did "my yoga" after running, and I was shocked to find, as I faithfully followed the program, how much tension had remained in my joints, muscles, etc., even after running. My mental, physical and emotional states all improved dramatically with this yoga program -- so much so that I thought I had found the fountain of youth, that I had discovered my true being. I did injure my knees with the "bow" -- the book's single inadequacy is its lack of precautionary advice and remedies for injuries. I have looked at other yoga books and this is by far the best in terms of succinct information, very good instruction, and a progressive program.

In 1970, I purchased Hittleman's 28 Day Yoga book at a flea market. I was 33 years old and already beginning to feel the effects of arthritis. It was all I could do to exit a car or bend down to lift the toilet seat. I was a rusty gate. Today at 67, thanks to following this simple 3 routine sets of asanas, I am able to curl 65lbs 10x's with one arm, run 3.61 miles daily, bike 34 miles both weekend days, do 100 pushups, and many other feats of strength that many men less than 1/2 my age are unable to do. I have added the Sun Salutation to my daily routine, as demonstrated by Rodney Yee, and Marie Winsors Pilate Teasers. Other than that, the three routines are perfect for what I have accomplished in my personal life. I have bought dozens of copies and given them to others. My 6 sons ages 40, 39, 30, 24, 20, and 17, also have followed this yoga regimen when they began to play sports. All became outstanding athletes in boxing, football, baseball, soccer,etc. and as well as outstanding scholars and US Army Officer Rangers. Does our family think this yoga system is worthwhile? We think it is a Godsend.

I began doing Yoga with Richard Hittleman when he had a TV show in the early 60's. I bought his little pamphlet to use also. It was a simple little book with drawings. In 1969 I bought his hardbound edition---the 28-day plan, and used it when he went off the air. I've been using it ever since. I may have missed a few sessions now and then, but for the most part I stuck with it over the years, and I'm happy to say that his promise of "flexible for life" has paid off. For a woman of 80, I'm very flexible and have good balance. I practice three times a week without fail, and will keep it up forever. I loved that man, for his gentle philosophy as well as his advice on health. Lately I wanted to let him know how well he's kept me over the years, which is why I decided to look him up on the internet today, only to learn that he's been gone since 1991. I've been missing him, and now I know why. Doris Hirigoyen

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I got this book years ago when I was much thinner. In perusing the offerings of yoga books on amazon.com, I noticed this book was re-issued. While I found it useful and was able to do the poses years ago when I was in better shape, I would caution those who are very overweight (like I am now) to use extreme caution doing the shoulder stand and plow postures. These postures put too much strain on neck and shoulders--I feel that's true and have heard it said by yoga practitioners. I am on my way down the scale again and will use the book when I've lost enough fat to make the postures practicable for me. In the meantime, I'll do more standard stretching.

I'm only 18 and I can see this book being the core health routine for the rest of my life. Easy to follow, and almost impossible to strain oneself with variations from easy to extreme, it's an absolute training must for Rockclimbing or any other sport.

I got referred to this book through a friend and as soon as I received it in the mail I thought it was kind of funny because it didn't look like your average modern yoga book for the New Millenium. The pictures and diagrams are all really old (from the 1970's - before I was even born), so I thought it was really corny and my initial reaction was "how good could this book really be with all the NEW modern stuff that's out there?". My question was answered in less than a week. I have never taken a yoga class in my life, I'm not a fitness nut and I'm not into al the trendy exercise programs. I'm just your average person, however I swear that this book will make your body bend and flex like you've never seen it do before. I went from being semi-stiff and tense, to becoming flexible and agile, relaxed and calm. I've tried other stretching books before but nothing delivered such quick and easy results as this book. So important lesson learned. NEVER judge a book by its cover!! The pictures may be cheezy but the actual content of the book is amazing! I highly recommend this book.

Not much a Yoga freak, I happened to follow the 28 day Excercise Plan of this book of Yoga by Richard Hittleman and sure, it hit high to shoot all five stars in my fav list.If a work out plan for 20-30 minutes per day is followed with this book, it sure is an accomplishment to good frame of mind, body and soul. Beautiful photographs make the workouts accelerate Yoga system ideal for all ages. Alongwith the Practice Plans are Thoughts of the Day that make one Think wise, right and continue with the two major Yoga practice in this book - Raja Yoga i.e. Meditation and Hatha Yoga i.e. Physical. Its objective is to cultivate the natural beauty of body and attain high health state. Achieve self Realization too. This book is exceptional because when I used this, the illustrated pics were much easier to follow alongwith the instructions and thats so cool about it especially when one is lazy to go out for Workouts to gym, do aerobics or whatever. This book instructions can be followed in own room space at own pace of time and keep fit, high spirited and maintain proper balance, concentration and control of mind. A good pick.
