I always intended this to be a baby book, an introduction, and I fully expected to have to find better books later as I advanced. It turned out that this book was good enough on its own. I lost track of it over the years, and was please to be able to find the book again.
This book is in a larger format than the original pocket-sized book I once had. You can still get the smaller book. I like the larger format.
I regret discontinuing my yoga practice. I had started late, in my thirties, and after a few years I had had made good progress. I don't remember why I stopped, except that I did when I got remarried. I must have been distracted by a full life.
I remember coming home from work and being tired. The last thing I wanted to do was thirty minutes of yoga. I almost always practiced anyway, and when I was finished I felt refreshed and glad that I had made the effort.
Now, as a senior, I believe it is best to return to at least some parts of Hatha Yoga in order to gain flexibility and suppleness. I dislike the idea of slowly becoming rigid and contracted, both physically and mentally.
Richard is the master and created a systematic approach that builds upon each day to show you new asanas and clearly explain how to do them and their purpose. His tone is patient and affirming. Each chapter ends with thoughts for the day which recap the daily lesson or offers other health tip benefits. He provides 3 yoga routines at the back of the book that are all referenced if you need to go back to read the instruction on how to perform a pose. Truthfully, I still prefer using the routines in his book to today's newer yoga DVDs. Something about his book is just pure. Over the years I have been up/down in my practice with this book but he has a routine that remains my "go to" today if I am short on time or energy in the chapter Work is Not Exercise that always leaves me feeling revitalized and refreshed no matter how tired I was when I started the routine. I always struggle with weight issues and the routines in this book helped me lose weight. This book is also responsible for changing my approach to diet and nutrition and I eliminated several items from my diet that I still don't eat today. I try to do his routines 3-4 times per week.
My original book is so tattered and torn from using it so much. I've gone back to his original book so many times and decided I wanted to see if it was still available. I was thrilled to find it here and in the "larger size". This book contains the exact same content as the original but is just super sized compared to the original pocket sized book. The original pocket sized book is also available here at amazon. Over time you will come to memorize the three routines but I just like going back to the book. Each time I read it there are new nuggets to discover and pick up.
