"Fascinating work. One of the outcomes of her creative tantric synthesis of dance and yoga is a series of 64 innovative yoga exercises that are photgraphed and presented in detail in this book."
"An exquisitely presented, magnificently related story. Gupta evinces a fascinating appreciation of the many great dancers with whom she trained in the practice, drama, and philosophy of Indian classical dance. Glorious, original and inspirational book."
"A very interesting read."

A Yoga of Indian Classical Dance § The Yogini's Mirror By Roxanne Kamayani Gupta, Ph.D. This book is a major work, documenting exquisitely a Western view of the Hindu traditions of Yoga and Classical Dance and their amazing and visceral connections. Rarely has the blend of beauty, knowledge and insight been so unified to teach and inspire. The pictures and the text in the final chapter, The Yoga of the Elements are worth the price of admission alone. The Library Journal, in its splendid review of this work, suggested that it belongs in every college campus library under many and various headings. I couldn't agree more. The book sings with the energy and the authenticity of the author's passion for knowledge and her practice and experience of it. My hat is off! Bravo. Ed Gans, Gh.aWas this review helpful?
