"Chip Hartranft has given us a fresh, authoritative, and brilliant new translation of and commentary on the Yoga-Sutra, and an entire generation of American yogis should be deeply grateful. His work successfully combines intellectual precision with emotional accessibility-a powerful marriage seldom even attempted with this notoriously difficult text. Hartranft is careful always to leave Patanjali's own genius in the foreground, and as a result the astonishing intellectual architecture of the Yoga-Sutra shines through. Bravo!" Stephen Cope, M.S.W., L.I.C.S.W., psychotherapist and senior Kripalu Yoga teacher, author of Yoga and the Quest for the True Self One of the two most important foundation texts, upon which all yoga is based, the Yoga-Sutra is required reading for anyone aspiring to full knowledge of yoga. The 196 short aphorisms which comprise the Yoga-Sutra, give the ethical and intellectual underpinnings of yoga as well as guidance to practice in a unique and eloquent way. This wonderful translation and commentary offers a perfect introduction to the Yoga-Sutra for first time readers and fresh insights that will make the work seem even more alive for those familiar with other translations and commentary. Chip Hartranft is the founding director of the Arlington Center in Arlington Massachusetts, a teaching center dedicated to the integration of yoga and dharma practice. He leads retreats in the US and abroad that blend yoga movement, breathwork and mindfulness.
