Excellent Yoga book


This book is possibly the best book on yoga that I have ever read. It is massively comprehensive, insightful and engaging. The instructions are meticulous with a focus on maximum performance alongside injury prevention. Definitely a forever book.

Easy purchase


i don't like the glossy pages of this copy as I was reading out of a different edition before buying this one and the picture quality is a slight drop, the book I was reading previously had Bks on the cover in a pose... as far as Booktopis is concerned I can't fault them...



Essential book for aspiring yogis


Essential for all aspiring yogis! Great resource book for all yoga instructors. Will really help to evolve your yoga practice.

Essential for all long term students of 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.



Fast service, great prices, cheers


Classic yoga book

Classic Text by the Guru


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