The definitive guide to yogic breathing from . Iyengar, the world's most respected yoga teacher. Iyengar has devoted his life to the practice and study of yoga.

Discusses how the respiratory system works and demonstrates a series of hatha yoga breathing exercises

I teach meditation and I am educated in biology, biochemistry and psychology. I am also a student of world religions and a yoga practioner. During my graduate school years, I was also a Teaching Fellow in Physiology and I teach workshops on pranayama and biofeedback. Therefore, I think my opinion has some weight in this arena although I realize there are more serious yoga practioners who have more in-depth knowledge than me. My purpose in sharing this information is to provide context from my review. I hope this is useful.

This book is incredibly detailed and goes deeply into respiratory physiology, muscles, practices and the details of pranayama practice. There are clear explanations, however, many people may find them to technical without a biology background or the desire to take this information in slowly.

There are many good diagrams and photos in the book that any practitioner will find helpful. In some cases, they are unique in the yoga literature in some way and I can't imagine not having this book on your shelf if you are serious about the practice of pranayama.

While this is not the most colorful or modern looking text, it certainly packs a lot of information into a small space. It is also written by someone who has travelled this road and understands it both technically and from the inside. In short, it is an authoratative text on this subject.

A lighter book along the same lines which I have also read is the Science of Breath. For beginners, this title might be more appropriate. However, any practioner at any level will eventually want to own this book.
Ancient wisdom. Look to the ancients for the true essence of yoga.
As a yoga teacher and practitioner, I love pranayama! This book goes in-depth and is a fascinating read. I have expanded my teaching and practice of pranayama using this book.
Outstanding introduction into yoga breathing. A great guide, step by step details, enlightening your journey. A great combination with yoga sutras and his yoga instructional book.
This book is a treasure to me. It teaches a safe means of progressing through all of the variations of pranayamas. If all of the advice is taken, there will be no problems in this area of your personal practice.

This is only one part of the yogic path, though. The rest needs to be in place for this to be effective. For that I rely on Yogani's Advanced Yoga Practices book. It gives step by step, safe instructions utilizing the techniques of the Gheranda Samhita, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, as well as other great works. I highly recommend it to any serious yoga student.

I am so glad to have found "Light on Pranayama". I am somewhat of a beginner to the serious practice I've undertaken, but with this book I feel confident that I will succeed. Thank you BKS Iyengar.
This book is excellent. It should be read patiently and put into practice with the same patience and diligence. The health benefits will be felt immediately and if you contemplate the spiritual side, you will benefit even more.
An amazingly detailed explanation of the complexities involved in Pranayama.
I have never found a better book on pranayama. Go to the source!

Iyengar explains everything so well inclduing pointing out what your issues or problems might be.
