    Highly Recommend for the thoughtful inquirer

    Though some of the ideas are quite abstract and may be difficult to get one's mind around, they are well explained and translated. The explanations are easily understood and told in a relevant and relatable way. A must read for practicing yogis who want to deepen their understanding of yoga.

    I am a high school sophomore and I chose to read this book for my project. I found this book to be somewhat interesting. It goes in depth
    to teach what Yoga is, and what it does to help you. I did not like it when it had a lot of words in Sutras. I thought that it was not important 
    to have in the book. I thought the book would have examples of Yoga positions but it did not. As an active person, if I have done Yoga,
    I would fail because I cannot sit and just meditate for a long time, I would get bored. What I related to the most were the five kinds of 
    mental modifications. To actually have the right feeling of Yoga, you would have to do it on a daily basis. After I read that, I was 
    thinking that even if I tried to do Yoga it would not fit me. I thought that Yoga you would just get it immediately, but it is just like everything 
    else, if you want to do something it takes time and practice. This book has taught me that your mind is one of the key factors. Overall 
    after reading The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali I did not like it, even though it taught me a lot about something that I didn’t know before. I 
    thought that Yoga was very easy, but then I would have to work on a lot of my low factors to actually get the real meaning of Yoga. 
    As I read through the book, it taught me many things that I did not know about Yoga.
