Very well explained

Good explanation of yoga sutras, aashanas, Kriya yoga, meditations and Bhagavad Geeta. Definitely recommend to those who wants to learn about yoga and practice yogic life. Not just physical aashana exercises.

Interesting

I enjoyed listening to this book about yoga. As a yoga teacher I am familiar with the content and always look forward to a different perspective. I have always lived in the United States therefore my perspective is that of a “westerner.” I use to feel as though my practice was somehow less authentic because I did not receive training in India. Frankly I have no desire to visit India. I’ve assimilated my life experiences into my practice and my teaching. Heidi explains yoga as a means to change one’s habits through observing oneself. In order to change you must recognize what it is you want to change. I’m not talking about anything physical, rather mental which involves thinking. Learning how you think is exciting because only you can do this. Whatever you do on the mat can be applied to the other 23 hours in a day.

A new understanding of yoda

I’ve been doing yoga for years. Mainly for exercise. I have also been meditating for years. However I never understood the interconnection of the two until I heard this book. Highly recommend for those of use wanting to either get a better understanding of what yoga really is or to deepen our practice. Thank you Heidi for such an enlightening read.

Best book I’ve listened to so far.

The author and narrator has such a soothing voice and an easily understandable way of explaining the concepts of yoga. This has inspired me to to start a meditation program and to find the right practice for me. I’m so very glad I found this author and this book! You won’t regret it.
