Review

“Yogi Cameron is a wonderful teacher who can help all of us make conscious choices about our health and well-being.” (Tal Ronnen, author of The Conscious Cook)

His story of the journey is informative and fascinating.” (Coline Kali Morse, Director Teacher Training Programs, NY Integral Yoga Institute)

“Cameron’s journey has brought him down many paths, but the path that he has chosen, and the path that he walks is truly one that is spiritually elevating. This book and his life’s work is a map of the journey.” (Djimon Hounsou, actor)

“Now, in his most recent incarnation as author of The Guru in You, the famously chiseled yogi helps readers curb the excess that can lead to suffering, not to mention unwanted pounds.” (Vogue.com)

“Designed to fit into everyday life, the tools in this book help create change and allow readers to find their own paths. With personal stories and advice as well as photographs and exercises, this book offers readers the chance to discover their own healing potential.” (Taste for Life)

I was pleasantly surprised by the book. I have only recently known about Yogi Cameron and was willing to give his book a read. I must say that I loved the way it was clear, simple to read and so concise. Very beautiful and personal. I will read it again. Namaste

Not at all what I was expecting. Getting guru advise from a former superficial model is not my idea of enlightenment.

An authentic book from an authentic practitioner Jan. 17 2011
By NotSoBookish - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I picked this book on a whim, wanting to learn more about Yoga and Ayurveda (Indian system of holistic medicine) from an "outsider" looking "in" to get a varied and an unbiased perspective on the above philosophies. I was pleasantly surprised that Cameron turned his life around and made a conscious choice to walk away from a stellar modeling career and access to most material excess, to pursue a career focused on temperance, meditation, healing, and detachment.

The book consists of four parts:

Part One: The Path consists of
* The Material World and
* Setting Your Intention.

Part Two: The Foundation consists of
* The Practice of Nonviolence (kindness toward ourselves and others),
* The Practice of Detachment (Allowing what nature intends for us), and
* Letting Go of Excess (Knowing when enough is enough).

Part Three: Expression consists of
* Posture Practice and the Pursuit of Inner Beauty,
* The Breath,
* Living the Ayurveda Way, and
* Practices for Building Awareness.

Part Four: Union describes
* how to put is all into practice - with clear examples showing how the above theory and postures and holistic way of healing could be made part of life, followed by an Appendix of case-study examples.

The book is succinct and well-written. It reads like a friendly conversation, but it is still substantial and makes you introspect. The exercises are described in an audience-friendly manner and with corresponding photographs. There are well-drawn examples to accompany each new aspect of the pose/breathing/following the foundational practices. Cameron has sprinkled the book with personal anecdotes as well as his sense of humor and has presented the book in a humble manner that makes it even more accessible for anyone.

My personal experience with the book: From just following the sections on The Practice of Nonviolence (kindness toward ourselves and others) and The Practice of Detachment (Allowing what nature intends for us) alone - neither are what they seem at first and have much wider reach than just what goes into your diet, etc., I have achieved transformations which have brought a greater degree of peace and grace in my life.

A Pretty Face Feb. 3 2011
By C. Henry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Yogi Cameron is a gorgeous ex-model who has transitioned to teaching yoga and practicing ayurveda (which usually takes years to master and in which to qualify.) His clientele seems to be mainly female and wealthy and single--or rich and famous. He seems to be sincere, but the marketing machine here seems to be pushing his looks and charisma--makes one wonder about the actual spiritual depth of the guy, a subject he likes to talk about. There are SO many other, better, more complete yoga and ayurveda books out there. The core of his book offers a few simple yoga routines, some breathing, and some dietary advice based on dosha type, which can be had in any number of other books. Also, I fault the publisher for using very poor-quality paper and low-resolution photos--it's not a high end production by any means. If you're a Yogi Cameron fan, you'll enjoy the book as a keepsake or souvenir, and some might find some helpful beginning information. Of course I wouldn't turn down a personal session with the guy, but if you're serious, look elsewhere.

Entertaining but Disappointing April 14 2011
By Rick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
There is nothing new in this book as far as health secrets go unless you consider drinking warm glasses of water insightful. The author is somewhat too genuine in his fervor for the guru lifestyle that leads one to believe he is merely interested in selling books which he dose well as the book is well written and entertaining. It's an easy read but once done you really don't come away with anything of value except a delightful yarn about a guy who became a self proclaimed guru. Nothing harmful but then again not much useful information.

An Easy Read With A Great Payoff Feb. 8 2011
By Steve Gordon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Yogi Cameron has succeeded in introducing the Ayurvedic way of life in a most palatable way. Everything he teaches makes sense and the story of his journey makes it all the more real. Introducing a 5000 year old system for healing is a daunting task, but Yogi Cameron encourages starting with small steps. I took some and it was great. The Guru In You is so accessible that it covers up the intensity of the experience that it offers. I am reading it again and am fine tuning some of the steps that I have taken and am adding some new ones. It has been a very positive experience.

Beware do not take this seriously Feb. 20 2011
By Flower - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I read this book and found several parts disturbing. His education consists of paid classes to gain certificates only and a few months in India as a ashram guest. His opinions are just that, his personal opinions, which he is asking people to take on as their life journey. Really people are not that stupid. The most disturbing issue was his insisting that we "throw out or give away" all material photographs of our loved ones in order to correctly follow this program. That is absurd. He states we do not need photos to remember our loved ones and should be ashamed to keep them. The absurdity continues to the point its laughable. How dare he push his warped views on the public. He goes on to stronger opinions that are forceful telling us to get rid of all material possessions. I found that deeply disturbing that someone reading this book may be so naive as to follow his advice. As I continued on I found he has no basis for this so called "guru" that he claims he is. He is simply a former fashion model that was bored (his words) and took yoga training classes. After a lifetime of earning wealth, he lost his money and is looking for a easy way to make money. He feeds off of celebrities and others that are not intelligent enough to fend off this very bad advice.
A true Guru enhances your life, does not give orders and tell you to give up things that are dear to you and precious. I have met with my own Guru and no such demands are ever mentioned. They are educated in what they teach and have a lifetime of learning. This guy is just a fly by night joke trying to make money. A true Guru is a teacher yes, but not in this sense where he is making demands on your life. This person should not be writing books. He is dangerous to a soulless public searching for someone to cling to and I highly recommend you do not bother with this, it is a waste of reading time. I recommend to my library that they pull the book due to is disturbing content.
