    One thought on “The Path of the Yoga Sutras: A Practical Guide to the Core of Yoga”

    1. 1/29 - I've gone through 4 chapters and my Sutra class is tonight. This is an excellent easy way to get into the sutras. I've read them in other translations but this is a great intro. It's not following the sutras bit by bit but it's tying it all together. Our teacher is giving us the sutras each chapter pertains to as we go through. Not that I think you have to have that to get an understanding. At the end of each chapter there are "thoughts" that summarize the chapters and exercise for you to [...]

    2. Yoga Philosophy for the WestSacrificing accuracy for applicability, Nicolai Bachman summarizes the key concepts of yoga philosophy in a modern context. The structure lends it self easily to a thought per day (or week) that can influence how we engage the world.

    3. I read this as part of my training in becoming a certified yoga instructor, and found it to be very helpful on a spiritual, personal level. Further, when people ask me questions about yoga's spiritual aspects, I will be able to provide more thorough answers.

    4. Bachman makes the Yoga Sutras easy to understand and bring into your life. A short read explains the Sutra and prepares the practitioner to practice the thoughts and guides that follow.

    5. So good. I've ingested lots of material and only after reading this did I realize that my knowledge had been so lacking in structure and scaffolding. Nicolai expertly connects all the principles in a very readable form, while preserving the integrity of the Sutras - it's very clear where he is inserting his voice.

    6. Read slowly. Take in a chapter, then let it settle, think about it. Absorb this book slowly. It is transformative.

    7. My favorite! Really great. The Path of the Yoga Sutras is a book I could not put down. But in having said this, I did not want to hurry. I wanted to savor each paragraph and each chapter. This special book is filled with heart! Enjoy!

    8. A Excellent interpretation of the Yoga Sutras; they're a bit dry and complicated, and this makes them heaps more accessible. Great guidelines for any compassionate human being on how to live.
