Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book offers a good overview of the most commonly offered yoga practices and styles. It is not, and does not try to be a substitute for an in the flesh class with a knowledgeable teacher. Do you need it if you have a good teacher? Probably not. But it is still an informative read.

The guide centres on the various disciplies of physical "Hatha" yoga, including Iyengar and Astanga, the names we often hear in the UK.

Each pod comes seal-wrapped in a little packet for freshness.

Worth giving them ago. These things are all down to personal taste but they work well in the machine and the flavour works for me.
