What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Whether you are a student of yoga or would like to become more familiar with this ancient Indian tradition, you will find this an easy-to-read guidebook that is based on authentic writings and experiences of some of India's great yogis."—Booklist

"Certainly a staple of any well-rounded yoga collection."—Library Journal

"Feuerstein's guide is an important pointer in the right direction that should also help readers understand the astonishingly sophisticated system that has emerged from a 5,000-year-old Indian spiritual tradition."—Publishers Weekly

"This is a classic book for every Yoga enthusiast, whether neophyte or seasoned practitioner."—Sarah Powers, author of Insight Yoga

"This was one of my first philosophical books on Yoga, and it gave me a strikingly clear and accessible doorway into the historically rich interwoven layers of this diverse path. Each time I reread it, I am delighted to find new insights and connections that I had missed before."—Sarah Powers, author of Insight Yoga

"If you're looking for a comprehensive yet very readable introduction to the important schools and practices of the Yoga tradition, look no further. A master work by a master scholar-practitioner, this is the only book I ever recommend to students wanting to lay a historical and philosophical foundation as they begin the serious study of Yoga."—Richard Rosen, author of The Yoga of Breath

"This is an excellent little introduction to some of the practices and theologies of Yoga, with particular emphasis on the Tantra traditions, which, although not mainstream in Hinduism, have recently become popular in the West. Feurerstein is taken seriously by both academics and yogis, and authoritatively combines the qualities of scholarship with the sensitivities of a practitioner. I always learn much from his writings."—Edwin Bryant, professor of Hindu Religion and Philosophy, Rutgers University
