Loved it

As someone relatively new to Yoga, I loved this book. Explained so many concepts about
be practise that just clicked and made sense. I look forward to revisiting the book once I’m more confident with yoga and assimilating more of the knowledge put forward in this book. Highly reccomend.

No download PDF What a Pity

This material is lacking without access to a pdf containing the yoga poses, mantras etc It is a time consuming task to take notes so that you can remember the words of the mantras etc. This would be great purchased in hard cooy!

Not the right narrator for this title.

This narrator's voice is too strong for this material. Subject is soft and flowing, narrator is not.

Horrible narration

What did you love best about The Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga?

The book's content

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator was reading extremely fast,he made it very difficult to actually take in what was being read. He was reading as if he would only be paid for the 3 hours and 40 minutes therefore had to complete it in that amount of time. I actually could not finish the listening to the book and chose to purchase the hardcover because of his reading,

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No but I did want to enjoy it while driving to and from work. I started it several times and finally just gave up, because the narration was irritatingly fast and harsh. It felt like when you someone starts talking to you and they are talking and talking so fast you can't get a thought in never mind a word.

Any additional comments?

I hope they redo this book with a different narrator.

Good content but needed a different narrator

Content was great but the narrators tone and pace didn't work for me. I had to rewind at several places to connect to what was read and this is the type of book you must connect with in order to benefit from the intent of the authors.

Good book, fast reading

Great book. Too much to take in, the fast reading makes it exhausting and not so fun. Reader needs to slow down and actually read what is being said as opposed to just reading words mechanically. Too fast to digest.

Narrator reads extremely fast

I overall liked the book and its contents but it was challenging to follow along because the Narrator was going at such a pace that by the time one statement or idea had settled into my brain I missed something else of importance. I wish also had a print copy to catch up on the parts I missed (or to easily reference later).

A must read

I’m on my third cycle of listening to this audiobook back-to-back. I even ordered a printed copy so I can follow along and take notes. The information provided within this book is practical, approachable and exactly what I was seeking. The performer has a gentle deep voice that is the prefect balance of soothing and strong, and won’t put you to sleep. The world can use more yogis, I hope this review inspires you to read & practice. Namaste.

Yoga law

I really enjoyed this book , nice and simple , not to much senseless info but just good practical methodology, a good book for someone who wants to know what yoga is about on a deeper level but not so much they just give up trying to understand 🕉👍
