I already had the original deck and now I've got as much variety as I need to aid my yoga workout.
A simple idea, but a good one!

I really like the packaging of this item. It's sturdy, small, and can go anywhere with you. The line drawings of the poses give enough of a picture without getting too complex. For the most part, the directions for each pose are easy to follow. I like the ease the deck format allows in developing my own routines. You can use the poses you like and skip the ones you don't (or the poses you can't do), better still it's easy to flip through and find cards that feel appropriate at the time (more soothing or relaxing poses at bed time or times of stress and energizing poses in the morning when I'm trying to wake up). As a new and working mom I don't always have the time for an extensive routine. Getting 20 minutes to myself is a rare thing. I bought _Yoga Mom, Buddah Baby_ by Jyothi Larson, and while I think it's full of great photos and information, I generally don't have time to do the routines. I hate to start a routine if I can't finish it. With the deck, I feel okay just grabbing the cards I have time for.
My only complaint is that this is a bit of an odd mix of poses. As this is the Yoga Deck II, I'd expect more complicated poses, which there are. There are also some very easy, very beginner poses but no real intermediate poses. I'm not saying that you shouldn't combine the complexity in your routines, just that as a set the easy poses seem out of place. I also found a couple of the descriptions inconsistent and difficult to follow, which means you may have trouble figuring a pose out if you are completely unfamiliar it. The pigeon was particularly bad in this regard.
