Book Description

Yoga For Beginners: Essential Poses For Yoga Beginners Is The Perfect Book For
Beginners Trying To Understand Yoga


© KDI Publishing Company. All Rights Reserved
Yoga For Beginners: Essential Poses For Yoga Beginners is a book that outlines the basic yoga poses that a novice can try if they have an interest in starting to practice yoga.

The author has made a concerted effort to make everything as simple as possible so that it can easily be understood. There are many books outlining yoga poses but none is as simple as and easy to understand as this.

The book is also well timed as it is being published in a period when persons are seeking various solutions to remain healthy or to get healthy apart from modifying the diet of course.
The book is filled with over thirty illustrations as well as instructions on how to get the poses done. They are all basic poses which would be done in the initial stages of practicing yoga.

Before you move on to the intermediate level, the body would be properly conditioned by these poses. Some people may think that they are not very effective but once they start doing the various poses they start to feel the positive effects.

Yoga is a nice low impact way to exercise and keep fit. The author knows this and conveys this in her book.

By want-to-know - Amazon Reviewer

About the Author

Amy Gilchrist became interested in yoga at an early age when she learned of the numerous benefits that it has not only for the body but for the mind as well. Because of her love for it she made the decision to get the information across to as many persons as possible and tried to find the best medium to do so.

She settled on putting together a book which outlines some basic yoga poses that anyone can try. It is an extremely simple book which anyone can follow as the paragraphs outline the process to do the various poses is followed by an illustration which makes it even easier to understand.
Amy is aware that some are a bit skeptical over trying yoga for religious of other reasons but tries to convey that the benefits of yoga exercises far outweigh any negative aspect it could have.

If you are interested in living a life that is healthy and getting in all the exercise you can without slaving away in the gym then yoga exercises can be a great option that can be tried by anyone. It is not hard to get started and with the guidance of a professional yoga instructor things will be sorted out in no time at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Beginners Guide to Yoga March 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have always wanted to try yoga for the many benefits but have always been intimidated for one reason or another. This book breaks it down and makes yoga easy to understand. The book is nicely filled with great colorful pictures that decribe each yoga pose. As a martial arts student, I found that I actually was doing a lot of the moves in this book without knowing it as part of my stretching exercises. This book gives tips how to improve the moves I was doing for maximum results. BTW, just got done trying some of these exercises and my back feels better already.

1.0 out of 5 stars No good content, web sites offer better for free September 13, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I put my copy in a 'share a book' spot at work and feel guilty about it.
There is a terse one-page description per pose that does not explain terminology that might be needed by a 'beginner'.
There is a single image per pose - that doesn't even match the pose, it's an 'adjusted' version. These photos are of many different people, many different locations - they look like stock photography taken from the internet.

There is no cohesive plan for using the poses, just a simple listing. There is no explanation of which poses are good for what, or which muscles are worked/stretched. There is at least one pair of poses near the front of the book that are near-duplicates, with no mention of which to use or why to use both.

Finally, the explanations themselves lack descriptive power, and seem poorly written - though they are spelled correctly, and have no major grammar problems.

1.0 out of 5 stars A big disappointment March 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I do beginner yoga using the Wii Fit video game and was hoping this ebook would help me learn to do some of the poses that I have problems with (like the Tree). Unfortunately, the book only shows completed poses, rather than showing step-by-step illustrations together with the text. The text is scanty in its instructions when it is supposed to be aimed at a beginner.

If you want real beginner instructions I suggest you try the DVD by Peggy Cappy "Yoga for the Rest of Us" which explains how to use props such as chairs, mats, and yoga bricks to acheive poses when you need assistance because of age, lack of joint flexibility or weight.
