    Comments about Light on Yoga:

    The perfect book for any serious student of yoga. It removes the unfortunate "pornification of yoga" image that is so prevalent, and reminds us of the very and many purposes of yoga: for the body, mind and soul. Iyengar's yoga is suitable for the very beginner, and the advanced practitioner, as everyone needs reminding of proper alignment, and proper practice. I couldn't recommend this book enough.

        Wonderful text that pays a lifetime of reading and re-reading. No better than to see the master himself in these asana.
