This book is amazing. It is so in-depth but at the same time simple to follow. I love the fact that Mr Iyengar really goes into the mental and physical benefits of each posture, it's made me aware of all the health benefits.
As a beginner, some of the postures look a bit intimidating but this has not put me off, as the week by week yoga course at the back of the book gives sequences of postures for beginners to the more advanced. This provides a structure that allows the student to develop and gradually improve.
