Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Perfect for beginners or folks with a bit of yoga experience, The Little Yoga Book is a perfectly portable antidote to stress. The book is based on a "gentle, flowing yoga" called Hatha yoga. It features poses to undo tension related to computer use, and packs in more than 40 illustrated poses for improving flexibility and stamina, 7 powerful breathing exercises for soothing both your mind and body, and 10 individual workouts, from a quick workplace refresher to an intensive at-home program.

Author Erika Dillman started practicing yoga after being diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome. She was nervous when she went to her first class: "I couldn't shake from my mind the pictures I'd seen in yoga books of gaunt, solemn men, wearing what looked like giant diapers, with one leg wrapped around their necks, and cold, expressionless women in Jack LaLanne-style polyester unitards nonchalantly twisting, bending, and lifting themselves into torturous positions." Dillman successfully dispels myths like these, explaining how she slowly learned that yoga can be an uplifting, individual pursuit, and one that reduced her fatigue, boosted her flexibility, and may very well have saved her sanity. Her awe and respect for the art of yoga is palpable, making The Little Yoga Book a big pleasure to read.

Format: Paperback
I'm taking my first yoga class next week after reading this book!! The author's personal account of using yoga to improve her health is inspiring. What prompted me to explore yoga myself though was her explanation of how it can benefit others, plus her down to earth approach to yoga. She has easy to understand descriptions and depictions of poses and breathing exercises. She also emphasizes that yoga is an activity that can be beneficial upon first attempts but is even more useful if one is patient and practices over time.

I have been taking yoga classes for over a year, have several videos and cds. However, I carry this book with me. Whenever I have a wait in an office, I just do a few simple stretches from the book. Some mornings I only have 15 minutes, and I choose a few from each section. The poses are easy to understand, the descriptions are well written. This book is simple, yet powerful.

Living in the fast-paced city of LA, working a the fast-paced industry known as show-biz, I never thought I'd have the time or the inclination to slow down for even ten or twenty minutes a day to focus myself let alone to breathe. Dillman managed in her book to lead me easily and entertainingly into trying out yoga. Now it seems that I have more time and I get more done than ever before. I've given several copies to friends, and they've all thanked me.

I loved this book! It helped make yoga postures accessible and unintimidating, unlike the plethora of others on the same topic. Dillman's emphasis is on neither the purely mystical nor the purely athletic yoga experience, but on the practical and playful benefits of yoga practice. Never sanctimonious, this book really got me stretching and moving. I'd love to see more by her...maybe on meditation.

This book is a great start for a person interested in yoga. The pictures are helpful. The descriptions great. It is a wonderful size for taking to the gym or anywhere. If you are interested in getting into yoga this book would be of great assistance. I have given a couple away as gifts so far.

Format: Paperback
This book is the answer to years of practicing yoga and never being able to really integrate it into my life. Thorough but easy to follow instructions and an attitude of genuine yet practical spiritually make this book really refreshing. Although it's small enough to be portable, I own two copies. One at home and one at work!

As I was in the "downward-facing dog" yoga position enjoying Oolong tea with a dash of soy contemplating my little pilates workout that I had just completed, I thought, "darn that Erika Dilman, if she hasn't completely changed my "little" life for the better"!
I look forward to her next little book and hope she considers "the little prostate care book" for her next project.
