Wonderful pictures, too." --Dominik Wujastyk, Indology "There is a certain magic at work here--as if Svatmarama has projected himself through time, expressing himself through Akers." --Michael Perkins, Woodstock Times "This faithful reproduction is an impressive and highly recommended reference for students and devoted practitioners of Hatha Yoga." --Midwest Book Review "Accurate and accompanied by clear pictures, this translation of an informative Sanskrit text is a very useful addition to the growing literature on Yoga in Western languages." --Ashok Aklujkar, University of British Columbia "Written over five-hundred years ago, the text is considered by many a seminal work on the practice of Hatha Yoga." --Chris Meehan, Kalamazoo Gazette
