Does not translate!

I expected this book to cover the philosophy behind Yoga and provide an interesting insight into living a spiritual life that included Yoga. Instead I got a series of exercises explained that do not translate into an audio book. A very boring book. I cannot imagine who the client group would be that could enjoy this book. Very disappointed!

This is not the full book!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

From browsing the kindle preview I can instantly see that this is not even nearly half of the book. I can see it is described as abridged - but assumed it would mean missing out the table of contents & unnecessary things, this is a very short overview & should not be equivalent to the full book. Very disappointing, now I will have to buy the kindle edition.

Great overview of history of yoga

This was a great insight into the spiritual side of yoga. Certain stories were a little complicated and I needed to listen a few times to get the message. However that's probably the point! Hehe. Would recommend as a good listen.
