I was amazed at how this guide made me realise that even though I know my yoga and the poses this book made me open my other reference books and nod in agreement. I love reading non-fiction like this that actually helps me in a clear and concise way to build sequences for classes. It has all a teacher needs and gives just that little bit more for the student to better understand the classes one takes.

It not only gives background information on yoga, but has very detailed explanation of poses, their counterposes, and contra-indications, as well as modifications all described in a clear and concise way.
The book doesn't require a full knowledge of all yoga entails to be able to understand it, but I do stress the fact that even with books like these students should take classes from a well informed teacher before trying poses unsupervised.

It does amaze me that while in the olden days we just held certain poses longer as a part of the routine, today it is a whole class in itself and even has a name of its own.
Yin yoga is a great way to de-stress and wind down in a most challenging way. Because don't mistake being sat in any one pose for a prolonged time for being easy. If anything Yin yoga is not easy at all and should always be practiced under guidance of a teacher, especially by those that have certain issues.

A valuable book! Good solid information on how yin yoga and the human body works both physically and energetically.
Well laid out suggested practice sessions for varying abilities. Clear photos and instructions - though I will never be as flexible as the model, I felt confident enough to do them to the best of my ability. Love the wall yoga section! Recommended this book to a friend abroad who also now feeling the benefits.

Amazing book for the following reasons:

1) Easy to read, structured content on the history, benefits and how to practice yin yoga

2) Yoga poses are explained very clearly, with several pictures from different angles of the same poses, with variations

3) There are different flow sequences that target different meridian channels,so it explains clearly dependent on the aim of the practice of the day - ie. tiredness, stress, digestive issues/other, you can pick the flow sequence that suits you!!!

4) Price - very good value for such a good book

I bought this book because I'm going to a yin yoga class. I'm enjoying the class, however I'm unfamiliar with some of the terms used and need to find out some background information. I haven't finished reading the book yet, but so far it has been useful in helping me to fill in a few gaps in my knowledge.

I'd would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in Yin yoga!

Bernie has got a friendly style of writing, which makes the book nice to read (so do definitely also read the theoretical stuff : ). For me, this book literally and figuratively really deepened my practice.

Excellent book with detailed, helpful information about getting into the poses and also any contraindications to be aware of. Lots of background information about ligaments, fascia etc as well as meridians, chakras, etc. About half a dozen useful yin sequences too.

refreshing, a sense of fun, down to earth, there are times when you need something purely yin. I am pleased I took the chance on this book.
