Worthwhile addition to the Yoga Library
on 4 March 2013
This review comes from the perspective of a yoga teacher.
If you're not a yoga teacher and are recovering from illness or co-living with chronic problems, this book will give you wonderful and supportive ways to receive the benefits of yoga practice without any risk of physical strain.
However, if you are a yoga teacher, and especially if you have been trained or influenced by the Iyengar teaching, I imagine you will find that you already know a lot of the suggestions here, and there is a lot of repetition. For example there are 5 variations on the Basic Relaxation Pose, and 7 variations of a supported backbend.
I am glad to have purchased the book. I have integrated the postures and sequences into my classes and into my own practice, and am very, very glad to have done so. Powerful and deep stuff, to be sure.
