From Library Journal
Carrico, the choreographer of Jane Fonda's yoga video, and the staff of the well-respected Yoga Journal have produced both a good introduction to the history of yoga and helpful instruction in a range of basic poses. The book describes nine primary varieties of Hatha Yoga for the general reader and suggests ways of finding a good teacher. The beginner's postures are described in thorough fashion, with photos of correct and incorrect techniques. The book also includes recommended sets of postures, depending on the time of day, and advice on meditation. A class or video may still provide the best introduction to yoga, but this book is both an excellent complement to other instruction and a good reference source in itself.?Norman Oder, "Library Journal"
