This book has nice clear black and white photos of people doing the yoga poses.
What is particularly nice is the way the book is broken out into 3 distinct parts - the 1st is a programmed series of moves for beginners - a GREAT way to start.
This book is slightly oversized and printed on thick, glossy paper so it feels really nice to use.
I'm a new student to yoga (only 3 classes so far) and this book is helping me understand the practice and poses of yoga. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Paula
