The thirty poses constitute the foundation of yoga stretching and strengthening. They fall into standing poses (such as mountain, tree, triangles, warriors, side and forward bends, and lunges), lying down poses (such as cobra, bow, elevated legs, lying twist, and relaxation poses), seated poses (such as seated twist, hero-heroine, seated angle, child, and meditation poses), head and shoulder stands, up-plank, and bridges. These are also included in seven days plan at the end of the book. For regional anatomical therapy, the author had added a detailed section on "Theme Practice" that categorizes various poses for the lower back, hips and hamstrings, upper back, balance, strength, energy, fatigue, and relaxation.
Like many talented yoga practitioners, the author chose her photographs thoroughly to demonstrate the emphasized angles and posture of the body. This has greatly conveyed invaluable visual information that could hardly have been expressed by words in such memorizable manner.
For the price of $22.95 you are getting great lessons on getting and staying fit, learning the art of planning practical and safe yoga training, and enjoying a well written and designed book.

Other than that, it was a good book.
As a 65 year old with a low level of fitness, this book gives me the confidence that I can actually become skilled in the poses and develop my fitness to a good level. I also attend a yoga class designed for older people. Even though the activity level in the book can be fast, medium or slow, depending on your needs, it's a useful book for anyone. I practiced this morning for 15 minutes slowly and my muscles feel it!
I'm glad I decided to get this based on the other reviews as I think this will be a good reference for a long time! And certainly less expensive than a private lesson.
