This review is from: The Yoga Bible: Godsfield Bibles (Paperback)
I am very new to yoga and started on home DVD's . I bought this book to help me with the poses I was learning and also to help me customise my work out. The book has some great descriptions of how and why to use each pose. Each pose has a photograph and detailed instructions on how to work on the pose. There are suggestions on how the pose can be simplified for beginners. The book is very user friendly and emphasises the importance of making yoga work for you, removing the competitive element. There are some very advanced positions which look a little scary but which means that the book will probably be useful for quite some time.There is also a section on meditation, breathing exercises and different types of yoga. A great introduction to the subject. Only criticism: the pages don't stay open so it's hard to keep the book open in front of you whilst you attempt a new pose or are trying to improve upon one.
