"Unassuming, generous and brilliant, Dave and Ranju have been a steady source of inspiration for me for over twenty years. In this book, you are getting the no-nonsense, deep-reaching, honest, real-life yoga lived and breathed by these two wonderful teachers. This is the most readable book on the Yoga Sutra I have ever come across. It will be required reading on almost every yoga teacher training course in the country before very long." - Tara Fraser, Director Yoga Junction, author Total Yoga, Easy Yoga Workbook, Yoga Bliss, Astanga Yoga for You, and others

"This remarkable gem shines with clarity and poignancy, beckoning the modern yoga practitioner to take a deep dive into the meaning and purpose of Patanjali's Yoga Sutra. Yoga offers a path for greater health and awareness and this book provides the map: the nature of obstacles, tools for self-improvement through movement and breath, and the centrality of meditation and good intent. With the dawning awareness of the interconnection between psychology and spirituality, this book is both timely and sophisticated. Superb!" --Christopher Key Chapple, Doshi Professor of Indic and Comparative Theology and Director, Master of Arts in Yoga Studies, Loyola Marymount University, author of more than 20 books, including Yoga and the Luminous: Patanjali's Spiritual Path to Freedom--Christopher Key Chapple
"The fruit of a lifetime of inquiry and practice." --Mark Singleton, author of Roots of Yoga and Yoga Body --Mark Singleton
"Through their many years of dedication to the path of yoga, Ranju and David have brought the ancient insights of the often terse and complex Yoga Sutras to life. Here is something different - more than just a commentary - a way to understand and embody the wisdom held within these enigmatic threads. It's both an academic as well as a practical book for the dedicated practitioner wanting to deepen their experience of the yogic mysteries." --Sebastian Pole, Herbalist, Yogi and Co-founder of Pukka Herbs--Sebastian Pole
