Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspirational. Long regarded by many as THE definitive Yoga test, the Yoga Sutras were originally passed down from generation to generation orally by means of Sanskrit Chants. What we have inherited is a verbal sketch of these profound teachings which scholars have offered countless interpretations. As Nischala Joy Devi points out, most of those interpretations have been created by men and in-cased largely in rational, left-brain terminology. The Secret Power of Yoga is an ambitious and eloquent endeavour to interpret the Yoga Sutras in a more feminine and heart-based spirit. Drawing on her years of studying and teaching this text, The Secret Power of Yoga is a poetic and heart-opening rendering of The Sutras. Both men and women will find deep inspiration in this work.
