Comments Yoga: A Gem for Women

  • Lynne

    OK, soI haven't technically finished reading all of the information on each asana yet, but this book is amazing. The background information at the beginning is laid out in a straightforward way and there are instructions for a three-year course of study, including weekly schedules to follow for each year. I think these schedules will be useful when I'm feeling stuck or uninspired, or when I need to make sure I am tackling a variety of asanas in my practice. Iyengar also gives suggestions for pos [...]

    This Book is writted by Geeta S. Iyengar, daughter of B.K.S. Iyengar, founder of “Iyengar Yoga”This is more a reference guide specifically for women. I’d call this a medical yoga guide for women.This book is very comprehensive, philosophical and insightful. I would recommend this book for someone with exposure to yoga & for Iyengar yoga students. Not appropriate for the casual yoga practitioner.

  • Ashley

    Loved it. The philosophy on yoga is so well laid out, as well as the history of women and yoga. Also the sequences are little easier to follow for a newer yogi than Light on Yoga.

  • Neha Tandon

    This book is reread by me at all times.I find more connection to this book than Light on Yoga. It is with this book that I verify what I learn. The pictures of asanas done by a pregnant lady in the book is what made me to rethink in power of Yoga. It is truely a gem!The most wonderful gift from a friend.

  • Kate

    Extreeeeemly detailed and difficult to follow. Descriptions of poses are in a completely different section from the pictures of them. Thorough overview of yoga philosophies. Too thorough to be interesting to me or helpful.

  • Ashley

    Very insightful. The Iyengar family make profound leaps to getting yoga to the west. Their personal practice and knowledge makes them the premier authorities on the physical and philosophical aspects of yoga. A must read for those interested in yoga.

  • Heather

    A wealth of helpful information that specifically addresses the physical aspect of yoga on women. It's become my new favorite. And I love it that the author has pit stains in the panel pics.

  • Alexa Mergen

    This book has it all: philosophy, instruction, reflection. I referred to quotes from this book in several of my yoga classes. Students enjoyed it.

  • Michelle

    I reference this book weekly, a real gem!

    BKS Iyengar's daughter.

    This is such a comprehesive book. The reason it has only 4 stars is because it's not easy to navigate. There is a lot of cross referencing between charts and chapters.

  • ufo28

    If you're a woman and you're practising yoga you'll find this book very useful.

  • Heidi

    My former yoga teacher suggested taking this to Kinko's to get a spiral binding put on it. Haven't done that yet.

  • Michelle

    Have only referenced this book and then had to quickly return it back to the library.
