iPad / iPhone / iPod touch Enhanced EPUB iBooks has the best support for all the enhanced functionality in the Yoga Resource Practice Manual, so we recommend downloading the book onto your computer—and using it in the free desktop eReader app, Calibre  and transferring the book onto an iPad or iPhone—via iTunes sync. iBooks is available as a free download through iTunes if it is not already pre-loaded onto your device.

How do I transfer downloaded files to my eReader?

To download & transfer to your iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch

  1. Download the Enhanced EPUB file to your computer (note the default download location so you know where to retrieve the file later). If you are having trouble using the download links, try right+click (windows) or control+click (Mac OS) and then select “download linked file” (or similar). Choose a download location.
  2. Connect your iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch to your computer using the device’s USB cord.
  3. Open iTunes and select or iPad/iPhone in the upper right corner. Then select “on this iPad” (again in the upper right. DO NOT drag and drop the file and DO NOT try to use Calibre to sync your iPad. Go to the file menu and select “add to library,” then navigate to the file “Yoga_Resource_Practice_Manual.epub” in the location on your computer. Sync your device.

Q: “I’m having trouble downloading the file using the emailed links,” or “When I click on the links I get an error that says ‘you do not have permission to download this file.'”

A: Only one download is available per link. If you get an error, it is likely that you have initiated a download already and it is downloading in the background. Search your entire system for this exact filename: “Yoga_Resource_Practice_Manual.epub” or “Yoga_Resource_Practice_Manual”

If you find the file, proceed with the instructions below. If you do not have the file, please email us at

Q: I only see a .zip file and cannot find the .epub file.

A: If your email program or system has automatically unzipped the .epub file or 
named the file: “,” simply change the suffix to “.epub” Once you locate the file and change the suffix, DO NOT double click on the file. Rather, take note of exactly where it is located on your computer, and open it from within either Calibre or iTunes. If you open iTunes, use “add to library,” and then choose the *.epub file, and it should load into iTunes. From there you can sync it to your iPad.

Q: I ordered the book and still haven’t received the download links.

A: The download links emails is automatically generated from Paypal upon completion of your order.  If the order is marked “pending,” you will not receive the download link emails until your order is complete.  If the order is complete, please check the Junk and Spam folders of the email you supplied to Paypal when ordering the book.
