There are not many sources for the westerner who wishes to explore the depths of pranayama.This book is an exhaustive look into the art of breathing.It is complete,it is detailed and technical and it comes from an acknowledged guru.It is more than any other "modern" guru or yoga organization has put out in book form about the subject.For anyone who wishes to investigate and practice pranayama this is the classic.

No other book comes even close to this one on explanations. If one wants to know the nitty gritties of doing Pranayama. This is the book. Period!!

In my humble opinion, BKS Iyengar is the highest authority on Yoga of these days. You may not agree with me, no problem, but just open this book and you'll see that I might be right. Brilliant and clear explanation of Pranayama, step by step genuine method,theoretical background and a whole lot more, not even speaking about the illustrations. To be absolutly frank, this book alone is better than a semi-learned instructor, which are abundant here in the West. This book WILL change you! No gibberish of Hinduism, pure essense of Yoga!

The book does contain much valuable information. The problem is in unraveling the information from the needless rhetoric and "preaching". Regrettably, the author has interwoven the purely physical skill of breathing and exercise with his particular (predictable, old brain, standard line) religious views. If I were to write a book about auto repair I would not interject my personal religious views along with how to change a spark plug or overhaul a transmission! The worst part of the book is the pictures! They are god-awful! I wonder at the editor (a family member?)that authorized the pictures used in this book! The author would have been better served to use a professional model for the photos. If you buy the book, the first thing you should do is cut out most of the pictures! Or view them on an empty stomach.
