The spirit of yoga

Yoga & Buddhism? Yes, of course, they've always worked together nicely in my own personal practice. Cyndi Lee's text is one I may offer to my students who are interested in exploring this subject in greater depth. Her style is easy to read, without being at all condescending to the reader, or minimizing the subject. A great read, with nice guidelines for practice.

the essence of OM yoga

Cyndi Lee does an exemplary job of illustrating the core ideals of OM yoga in this lovely book. She expertly weaves the worlds of yoga and buddhism/meditation in a straightforward, conversational style grounded in her personal experiences. The asana sequences at the back of the book have EXCELLENT photographs to accompany each posture, and Cyndi has included her handy stick-figure chart of beginner/int/adv. sequences that would be perfect for directing a home practice. A great way to learn about OM yoga, meditation, and integrating practice into everyday life.

A very enjoyable yoga book covering beginner, intermediate and advances asanas

An unusual yoga book that incorporates life on and off the mat. Cyndi Lee begins each chapter with anecdotes from her personal experiences that segue into the focus of the section. Chapters are divided by pose type - meditating, breath, standing, sun salutes, warriors and standing asanas, balancing, seated poses, backbending/heart opening, inversions and, finally, restorative poses. There is a little bit about chanting OM, and tips for establishing your own practice at the end. The most useful part of the book for me are the pictured sequences. Models with realistic body types demonstrate the sequences and vinyasas for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. Props like bricks, straps and walls are often suggested. I am looking forward to trying the modifications leading to the more advanced poses, like L-Shaped Handstand and preparations for Crow. The black and white photos are clear and useful, although a few inset details would be helpful for exact hand/foot placement in many poses. A recommended resource for advanced beginnners who are excited to attempt intermediate and advanced poses, or at least be inspired to think about them.

Great Introduction to Buddhism

I highly recommend this book, Cyndi Lee brings real depth to the practice of yoga and puts your efforts into context. Simple, uplifting and a pleasure to read.

Beautiful Yoga

I stumbled upon a review of Lee's Yoga Body, Buddha Mind in the Elephant and immediately got a copy. I have really enjoyed her presentation of meditation and yoga. Cyndi offers excellent instruction to bring the attention to the breath as an exercise for both the body and mind. Her style is simple and interesting. I've reccomended this book to my fellow students in yoga classes and all have raved.
