    1. Review to come. (If I can find it.) As I recall having read this many years ago is worth reading as is anything from B.K.S. Iyengar one of the great teachers of yoga.Random recall: There is a movie by the great French director Louis Malle called "Phantom India" from 1969 in which he films the not yet famous Iyengar teaching yoga.


    2. took me a long while, but i finally finished reading Iyengar's guide to pranayama practice. exceptionally detailed and full of examples and metaphors to describe experiences. it's a fairly practical guide, and a good resource.


    3. Great book on Pranayama if you want a lot of detail and a breathing plan. It can be a little tedious. I'm not sure all the information is necessary. Makes a great reference.


    4. You would not believe what a struggle it’s been to get through this book. It’s way over-due and the fines are racking up. :SI would say I hated it and rate it poorly if it were not packed with so much valuable information… but that is part of the problem. The subject of Yoga is so vast and integrated that it would be difficult to learn in depth just one of the eight limbs such as Pranayama without at least some mention of the others. The first half of the book attempts to nutshell much inf [...]


    5. I didn't read all of the information on the techniques, only the introduction to pranayama and yoga. That had nothing to do with Iyengar, and more to do with me changing the topic of my final paper and focusing on other reading.


    6. One of the greatest books on pranayama! Sri Iyengar explained various pranayama in such a detailed way, that it should be easy for everyone to understand and introduce this beautiful practice to their daily lives.


    7. This is B.K.S. Iyengar’s A-Z guide to breath and breathing exercises (pranayama.) It’s meant to do for pranayama practice what “Light on Yoga” did for asana (postural) practice. That is, it presents all the classic techniques, offers variants to meet individual needs, and provides the background necessary to put pranayama into the context of a balanced yoga practice.Let me begin by discussing the book’s organization, and this book is organized to the n-th degree. There are parts, secti [...]


    8. Outstanding read! Another example of why one should not judge a book by its cover or by flipping through the pages. I read this first of two required readings on the subject of pranayama thinking it would be the hardest to digest. It was surprisingly very easy to read. Great review of yoga philosophy. Anatomy and physiology is explained in easy to understand terminology and I was amazed at the things I did not know about the human body, specific to the respiratory system, and again reminded of w [...]


    9. hard to follow sometimes the first few chapters jump around and define a lot of sanskrit words that seem overwhelming. the practice instructions are more towards the back. i'm reading this along with a class i'm taking, so that helps make sense of it all. (and iyengar says to practice with the help of a teacher!)


    10. Parnayama the art of breathing I'm in love with this art now, I love the training,examples, etc, some times its so hard to imagine the process by reading alone, Okay now for religious hundu why !!!! I'm reading something about breaking why should I have information about religious hindu every few pages !!! that's why I'm giving 4 stars


    11. The first third of this book was inspiring and I copied many of Iyengar's quotes into my journal. The remainder of the book was detailed descriptions of methods of breathing which were filled withMinutia and beyond my yoga practice. Reading this book after devouring his "Light on Yoga" was a disappointment.


    12. lil bit heavy extreamly detailed and could be clearer done which photos are "how to NOT do" and "how to do" this couldve been done lots better. altho Iyengar has a fascinating knowledge that I admire, the book is dry





    13. thee book on pranayama. WIll be on the reading shelf for years. it is so dense and thorough. a must for anyone interested in yoga.


    14. Why does he need to expound Hindu religious philosophies while teaching breathing practices ? while I recommend the book as a health aid, I could easily skip the religious BS.



    15. A very thorough look at pranayama from the master himself; super detailed instructions, lots of photos, a must for any super serious pranayama student.
