Great book to enhance your Mind and Body. I got interested in Meditation again after 15 years gap. I had a miraculous improvement in just 5 weeks where blood pressure and pulse rate all improved by 15 points. I have a marginal high blood pressure for few years. I am still taking medication. The blood pressure clock has been set back by 15 years in just 5 week. The best blood pressure reading I got today was in Cardiologist’s office which was 100/70. Last time I saw that kind of blood pressure was 15 years ago. The acid test will be if I can have normal pressure in 6 months with out medication. My meditation / breathing exercises are based on knowledge gained from other sources.

Engaging, Uplifting, Flawed

Beginning in 1971, when I began to practice hatha yoga using Swami Satchidanda’s “Integral Yoga Hatha” as my guide, I followed the career of this renowned guru until his death in 2002. When my first spiritual teacher, John R. Logan, informed me, in 1973, that Satchidananda was not the celibate he claimed be, but in fact was “taking advantage” of his female devotees, I began to doubt his purity – and years later when sex scandals involving Satchidanda became big news and led to the defection of 1/3 of his Integral Yoga Institute’s (IYI) membership, I can’t say that I was surprised. If you Google “Swami Satchidanada sex scandals,” you’ll find plenty of dirt on the popular swami.

Great Commentary on Yoga Sutras. The first few pages were just fantastic. This books is more about the philosophy of Yoga than the actual practice. A must read for everyone looking for inner peace.

Well written, sampled with many stories

There are many commentaries on Yoga sutras of Patanjali written by various Swamiji and yoga practiceners. I found as many as 112 books in the market published as commentaries on Yoga sutras of Patanjali. Most of them are mere translations. Some books are translations coupled with some asana postures. There are very few books stand out. Swami Satchidananda’s book is one of them. Philosophy of Yoga can be dry for a cluttered mind. While his book is also more of a translation, he drives the theme of each verse/ sloka by telling a story, which makes the book interesting to read. While simplifying the explanation, he made sure that he drove the point to the reader.

A must read!

A must-read for anyone delving into the ideas of self-awareness or meditation, or interested in learning more about enlightenment and/or the practice of yoga. The Sutras themselves are hard to understand, BUT, Swami does an EXCELLENT job of decoding them and explaining them as to how we can utilize them in present day. After reading a few of them, I found myself referring back to some of Swami’s stories/examples and saw how it really did apply. Highly recommended for the yogi and anyone getting started in yoga.

An easy way to learn about yoga and beyond

This should be read by anyone looking to practice yoga or gain some serious insight in life. It’s one of those books that you end up needing to put down to reflect on what you just read. Very cool.

This is an excellent explanation of the Yoga Sutras in lay terms. Why can’t all things be explained so clearly. Must have resource if you study yoga, or are a student of spirituality.
