The Yoga positions are illustrated with photos, often more than one to show the full movement, and with comprehensive explanations. As with similar guides, the photos are invaluable because, for me at least, the descriptions can make my head spin. They are of good enough quality and fairly crisp, but are not clickable or expandable.
The poses are, obviously, not easy to implement, unless you are already fairly flexible, although the author insists that Yoga can benefit anyone. That is true, but one has to accept that, for most of the asanas, a lot of gradual and patient practice will be needed to approximate the perfect execution depicted in the photos.
The introduction of basic poses, divided into four weeks, seems a little random, and raises a slight problem when a new asana is described as being a variation of another pose which has not yet been shown. However, by providing links when necessary, the author directs us to the missing information.
Despite the flaws I have mentioned, I like this book well enough. It gives a concise and useful presentation of a huge subject, which can serve as an introduction to further study, or just be used as a portable reference to the correct execution of the poses that are described.
