I went through the book from the perspective of someone who has never practiced yoga before. I found the instructions very easy to follow but I was disappointed with the photographs. They are all in black & white and quite small, so it ‘s hard to see if what you are doing matches the photo.
I did feel that the ‘lifestyle’ routines were well structured and I tried the “Good Nights Sleep” and “Yoga at Work” routines. They would be simple to work into your day, and there seemed to be something for every eventuality. The chapters that touch on the history of yoga & on meditation are excellent, and I would certainly want to read more on these subjects.
On the whole, this book would probably be best for someone who had attended a few yoga sessions or who had someone with experience to practice with. I didn’t feel confident that I was doing it right and with the unclear photos I didn’t have a clear reference.
