This simply illustrated handbook is suitable for the absolute newcomer to yoga practice through to the experienced teacher. The asana are illustrated in simple drawn figures, showing a variety of alternatives for individual postures. Unlike many other instruction books on yoga with intimidating photographs of beautifully held postures, this is by no means intimidating. It promotes total comfort in practice, enabling practitioners to find their way and enjoy the journey of yoga practice. I thoroughly recommend this book, a basic handbook that all yogis should have.
