"The Yoga Practice Guide" is a wonderfully-crafted book full of sequences; you can lay the book flat on the floor or prop it up, and just follow the series of hand-drawn pictures of each pose. There are sequences for beginning, intermediate, and advanced practitioners, as well as some of the standard vinyasas, pranayama, and even a chair sequence to do while at the office. Sequences are labeled for their emphasis (hip openers, back bends, etc.), and there are also some modular subsequences you can string together for a complete session.
The emphasis is on the practical: If you don't have the knowledge or time to craft your own sequence, you just flip open this book and get started. No space is spent on explaining why the poses are sequenced as they are, but seeing them presented graphically rather than being absorbed in the action, you can glean the patterns of warmup, peak energy poses, and cooldown, which will help you as you begin to do more of your own sequences or even improvise. For more thorough sequence design I expect you'll want some deeper training or a book dedicated to such.
The book's construction is very nice. The pages are light cardstock rather than paper, and the whole thing is ring-bound to lay flat. The cover is of the same light cardstock as the pages, which means the book needs care in handling.
There are some changes from the second edition. The type is set is a smaller but more readable font. On most pages the drawings a little bit larger in this edition, although on some they seem to be a tiny bit smaller. In any case, overall usability of this edition is better.Read more ›
