What is the best book to learn yoga is sana Pranayama Mudra Bandha By Swami Satyananda Saraswati is good for beginners yoga

I don’t think books are helpful when you first learn asana. They don’t give enough information in how to get into and just as importantly how to get out of asana.

APMB is an excellent book [B]about[/B] Yoga and many teacher training courses recommend it as a text book. DVDs and on-line stuff are much better if you are determined not to go to a class where you can interact with the teacher.

depends on what your goal is… physical fit or enlightenment…or may something else

Chrisleyene,
I believe, agreeing with YogaPrem, that one should prioritize to learn Yoga methods directly from a certified and experienced yoga teacher.
I also believe that, agreeing with CityMonk, the best way to invest in a book is to clarify your need and purpose.
For example, in case you are interested in knowing either the most commonly used Yoga methods or Hatha Yoga, etc., Asanas, Pranayamas, Mudra and Bandha by Swami Satyananda Saraswati, is the best book, However, if you interested in practicing either asanas and pranayamas, therapeutic Yoga or Iyenger Yoga, ‘Light on Yoga’ and Light on Pranayamas by B.K.S. Iyenger are the best. Books like "Yoga - Body, Mind and Sou"l by Swami Sivananda and Illustrated book of Yoga by Swami Vishnu Deva Nanda are the best for a person interested in practicing Hatha Yoga or Sivananda Style of Yoga.

i would say go and do a beginners course in yoga rather then trying to learn it from books… books help later on to clarify.

if you cant make it to a class for whatever reason check out “my yoga online” (google it) they are very affordable and have many classes you can follow online with good teachers. they have good presentations on anatomy and many other subjects related to yoga…


#13

This the modern bible on Yoga. Practise a bunch from pawana mukthasana series and standing poses. That will change your life.

From intermediate series you can add add some inversions later on.

Hi,
I’ve been doing Yoga now for awhile and have found it has improved my life in many ways. Physically my body has changed for the better( I’m no supermodel but I Feel Fantastic), Mentally I can Think with a lot more Clearness and I plainly just Enjoy each Day more and more as I have introduced it into my life…

So now I wrote a fairly small introductory book into the life of Yoga to hopefully touch the people who are thinking of trying Yoga and help them take the next step to Improve themselves…
It’s called:
“Yoga for Beginners” it’s for Weight Loss, Clarity and Focus!"

Here’s the link :
https://www.amazon.com.au/YOGA-Beginners-Mindfulness-Philosophy-Lifestyle-ebook/dp/B074PVPWZ1/

I hope this Helps anyone who needs the push to start the Journey of Self Worth with Yoga…

Susan
