Publisher's Summary

This simple introduction to both the Bhagavad Gita and Patanjali's Yoga Sutras is a gentle way to ease into these ancient texts. Crafted for use in Hatha Yoga studios, teacher training programs and experiential classroom venues, students will find the language of the audiobook friendly and engaging while teachers will find a rich offering of dialogue-encouraging questions and activities to enrich the learning experience.

Enlivened by original poetic commentaries and fleshed out with real world applications of these teachings, Easing into the Bhagavad Gita and Patanjali's Yoga Sutras provides an excellent starting point for the study of Indian philosophy.

Great discussion, poor pronunciation.

Is it "puh-TOON-juh-lee" or "pag-tahn-YAH-lee"? Neither, but the narrator switched between the two. It's "pah-TAHN-jah-lee". Hard to focus on content with these repeated errors.

Enlightening and insightful treasure

So grateful to have this work and words in my repertoire to deepen my understanding and connection to the teachings of these sacred texts. I highly recommend this supplemental treasure to both simplify and broaden a students understanding of themselves as divinity.

Not good

Super hard to listen to, it should not be an audio book and also is more of a complimentary reference than an actual introduction.

very difficult to listen

Would you try another book from Kimberly Beyer-Nelson and/or Jack Nolan?

not narrated by jack nolan

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

this is more of a workbook with all these questions

How could the performance have been better?

Jack nolans' way of emphasising is making it difficult and annoying listen to
