I especially like the back section with specific sequencing for chair classes with special focus on topics such as shoulders, hips et cetera. It's very easy to go back and review directions for
teaching each pose. The drawings work well to show pose and the writing is clear and concise.
I find this an invaluable resource and highly recommend it to teachers of gentle and chair yoga.
