This book looks like a great reference for those who would like to begin a yoga practice. The author suggests starting with just five minutes a day as one learns thirty basic yoga poses. Just a few of those included are the Downward Facing Dog, the Locust Pose, the Pigeon Pose and the Pendant Rose.
The author presents yoga as something that everyone can do, not just the most svelte and fit among us. She provides a history of yoga at the beginning of the book. Next come suggestions of ways to best practice yoga and then, of course, the poses.
With many photos, following the directions is pretty easy. That is not the same as saying that the poses are easy but, of course, practice is at the heart of yoga.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
