It takes a bit of patience to read and do each position slowly while trying to learn the routine...be patient it will come to you, then you vcan flow without having to pause so many times as I did the first 2 days.
My girlfriend says its true what the book says, you think some days your not progressing but the you see the stretching of your body gets further limber. I noticed by 2 day a bit more. DO NOT PUSH YOURSELF...I can not even get close to what she is doing, I have gotten so stiff after all my yrs. of no exercise since my early 40's.
I am so glad I was able to obtain a copy...I do not follow the Yogis ideals, only the stretching...that makes perfect sense, "MOVE IT OR LOSS IT" .That's is what happen to me. it would be nice it this was on a dvd or cd to look up at the screen but after my 2nd days as I said the add on's get easier without always looking into book.
Each day ends with a page long thought or idea to consider about yoga. The beginning of the book said plan for about 20 minutes a day for your yoga. I must breathe slower than most because it takes me about 30 -40 minutes a day (not counting meditation) to do each session. A minute of meditation is suggested before beginning. I've gradually been lengthening my meditation 'cause it's fun.
Some of the alignments may seem mysterious to modern yoga enthusiasts. I decided to do the poses as depicted in the book even if what we do in the studio now is slightly different. For example, cobra pose in this book has the elbows way out to the sides. Follow the directions because they are linked to subsequent poses.
The breath exercises are the best. I feel they are covered in greater detail than the newer yoga books i have read.
