Reader Review
The best Yoga book Ever, August 29, 2002
Reviewer: An Amazon.com Customer from MD
David Swenson's Ashtanga Yoga is the very best yoga book I have ever seen. While there are other books out there that are good, this one is excellent. The book is hard covered and seems to be very long wearing. The spine is spiral bound and lays flat, which is excellent when you are trying to reference the book and go through your yoga practice at the same time. The pictures are excellent and show as much as a book possibly could (of course a video or live instructor is always better). Each pose is well described, with steps laid out clearly for getting into and out of the pose. The book begins with a description of the principles of ashtanga yoga and then goes through the warm up, standing series, beginners series, and intermediate series. It also includes several versions of a practice from 15 min, to 2 hours. Even if you do not practice ashtanga yoga, this book is really an excellent reference for any yoga practicioner. I highly recommend it.

Book Description
John Scott's Ashtanga Yoga draws on his expertise as a teacher of this most energetic form of yoga. An easy-to-use guide, it features color photographs and a series of step-by-step exercise sessions -- starting with a simple sequence designed for beginners that, once mastered, provides the foundation for moving to the next cycle.

Reader Review
This is the best book on Ashtanga Yoga I have come across., February 20, 2001
Reviewer: Philippe Alexis from Mountain View, California
John Scott goes into great detail to talk about yoga theory, especially the Ahstanga breath, and the internal locks used through the practice. It is the first book I have seen which explains the difficult vinyasa transitions is such a lucid manner, using full color photographs to illustrate each subtlety. Another outstanding feature is that John takes you through how to enter and exit each posture step by step, breath by breath. I have been doing Ashtanga yoga for five years, and this book has helped me greatly in my own practice and as a teacher. I cannot recommend this book highly enough to students of all levels. Thank you for this beautiful work John Scott!

Reader Review
Recommended, May 1, 2003
Reviewer: An Amazon.com Customer from UK
I found this one to be extremely informative & practical and thankfully free from the cliched vagueness of some other books I have read. It contains very clear photos and detailed instructions for each pose/sequence along with the benefits of each pose. The introduction talks about the origins of yoga, the 8 limbs, etc and basically how to get the best out of your practice (touching on routine, diet, etc). Probably best suited for individuals who have already been introduced to yoga (at any level).

Ashtanga Yoga: Build Strength, Flexibility and Serenity with this Ancient Physical Art

Book Description
Ashtanga is the most dynamic form of yoga around, and now you can enjoy all its benefits--including increased flexibility, improved strength, and enhanced calm. From beginning sun salutations, through standing and seated postures, to the finishing positions, these pictures guide your body while the captions instruct you on proper breathing. One spread, for example, takes you smoothly through a forward bend into the basic "downward dog" posture, finally ending on the ground with a stretched out, arched back "cobra." You won't miss out on a single segment of the motion.

Reader Review
A wonderful book I have used in my yoga teaching for 14 year, March 21, 1999
Reviewer: A reader from Georgia, USA
Baba Hari Dass is a silent yogi who communicates via a chalk board. He is very straight forward and to the point and does not waste words. The book opens up flat so you can look at the wonderful pictures of the poses. It has a great introduction that includes all the limbs of Ashtanga (8 limbed) yoga. If it has a fault it is that Baba Hari Dass would hav you doing 2 to 3 hours of yoga practices a day if you followed his regimen, not very realistic for Americans.
