    Review - Iyengar Yoga - The Integrated & Holistic Path to Health

    This a great reference book that is true to the Iyengar system of Yoga. The authors offer their interpretation and insight. Good asana groupings and Suryanamaskar suggestions. The research findings at the back of the book are a little dry but add credibility to the Iyengar system from a scientific approach.
    The pictures in the book could be larger. They look old and because of the size it is hard to pick out the details they describe.
    The chapter on Mantras give phonetic spelling so one can learn them all.
    The book opens with great ideas to prepare the mind for Yoga practice.
    A good book for the Yoga library.
