    I have been interested in Yoga for quite some time. I am just wondering if it is better to dive into by attending a class first? I like the idea of having a book with all of the information in it. Just not sure if I will end up doing something wrong or what not. What do you think?

      Nothing beats the guidance of a certified instructor that you feel comfortable with. Books such as the New Book of Yoga should complement your practice and should be used as a reference, not as an instructor. Happy practising!

  2. Having a book of yoga is pretty interesting my wife does this and I thinkni would pass this information to her..Thanks for a great article…

    Yoga is not just a form of exercise and mediation, but the most important , how to stand up tall again when you fall deep into the abyss. I don’t practise yoga, but I learn the philosophy of life in India during my study . If you can mingle with the India way of life, you can practically survive into hardships in life.

  4. I think yoga is wonderful but I have never actually done it! I have heard many wonderful things about it and I have seen great results as well. I think it is definitely something I may try in the future and I may even use the book as a guide. Thank you for the information.

    Its interesting to me how I know a lot of people that do Yoga but very little people that actually meditate. The two go hand in hand and honestly meditation is a lot easier than yoga. I am the opposite. I have never done yoga before but have meditated before. This book seems like it hits all levels so maybe I’ll try it out as a sort of introduction…

    I practice yoga myself and enjoy all the benefits of doing it. This book sounds like a really good investment when trying to learn what yoga is about. I especially love quotes due to their ability to nurture my soul.
    Thanks for sharing with me.

    About 30 years ago I began practicing yoga – not with a teacher, but with a book. It really worked, to the extent that my spine, today, is much more flexible than that of many much younger people. I haven’t seen this book yet, but I imagine that it can be of similar help to people who really practice the exercises. The authors also give some insight into the philosophy of Vedanta Yoga which certainly is a big enrichment to the mere physical exercises.
