    1. This remains my very favorite basic yoga book for my home practice It has the best step by step directions for each pose, as well as modifications It has photos of people in the poses, which I find much useful than the drawings found in other books The book also gives a good overview of the whole yoga lifestyle, and includes sections on creating your own practice using proper sequencing I especially appreciate their emphasis on being gentle with your body, and not pushing it beyond comfort.

    2. I recommend this for anyone interested in the theoretical not read scientific basis for Yoga There are concise explanations of the historical, spiritual and physical aspects of yoga, as well as possible long term benefits It gave me the information to understand other people s beliefs and to integrate the yoga lifestyle into my non belief.P.S the Explanations of the various breathing Exercises and Asanas are Ace

    3. This had a good structure for how to build your own yoga practice, though a somewhat limited amount of poses to choose from, which I suppose is appropriate for a book like this I enjoyed the parts of the book that discussed yoga as a lifestyle and the history and non physical aspects of it.

    12. I purchased this book 16 years ago on a recommendation from my yoga teacher at the time After reading the book for the first time, I diligently designed some yoga routines and continued to practice on my own after the yoga classes stopped Somewhere between 16 years ago and now, I fell into bad habits and my mind and body no longer benefited from the lifestyle I lead With a bad back and two week holiday, I decided to re engage Yoga classes have been booked and attended and Yoga for Dummies has be [...]

    13. 3.75This book is mostly designed as a reference where you can open at any chapter and not feel left out As such, reading from cover to cover was redundant However, what makes this book great are the broad array of beginner adapted yoga exercises, advice for designing a program, and my favorite are the conceptual chapters in the front third of the book I don t think many other books in the same niche properly address the mental aspects of yoga like its history and philosophies just from the first [...]

Yoga for Dummies is a solid introduction to Yoga The book presents its information in a clear and understandable manner Each posture presented in the book is explained in numbered steps, and includes a photograph as illustration, making it a great reference The book also goes over how to sequence postures to personalize your own Yoga program I found the book to be very helpful in introducing me to specialized language associated with Yoga It helped me get an idea of how Yoga helps people in diff [...]

    16. Definitely a beginner s book with lots of useful information A good range of topics and starting points if you find yourself interested in any particular part you will need to research further on your own That said, this book was sequenced well and serves as a pretty good appetizer using their own metaphor for serious study of yoga.

    17. A good beginners book, that gives valuable pointers and shows there are many facets from lets do some stretches to the whole philosophy, and gives tips on how to continue to grow in your practice The illustrations are helpful, as is the humerous tone Good for the beginner, but also for anyone who wants to revise and tighten their practice and read up on this way of life.

    18. Very clear explanation of the different types of yoga Was a great companion to my beginning Hatha yoga class Really helpful in developing an at home program that was simple enough in detail and verbiage to actually get it right.

    19. 3 5 stars But that was only because I own the Kindle version which has no pictures.Overall this is a useful book I would give it a higher rating if it had pictures for helping with the positions.

    20. A good basic read for complete yoga novices I think I would recommend this over The Complete Idiot s Guide to Yoga simply because it uses photos instead of illustrations, and has a section on the use of props something I m looking to learn a bit about.
