I didn't get to look at this book through my library, one of the reasons why I was skeptical. I usually only get books that I have already decided are a worth while investment. So I threw caution to the wind and wound up with a wonderful book.
It goes into how the book should be read and then breaks down poses like Mountain, Tree, Warrior 1 and 2 by:
Telling you their joint position (Mountain = the knees are extended, hips neutral, . . .)
How to prepare for the pose
And what muscles you are using through various stages of the pose with some amazing muscular photos to go along with it.
It also give you some example workouts for vinyasa yoga as well.
Overall my impression: This is great, You can easily focus on proper alinement a pose or two at a time for a week until it becomes natural to your everyday practice. I am buying the rest of the set.
The quality of the paper, the drawings, the detail of the muscles, the clarity of the information,etc.
Inside you'll find instructions to ace the final Asana, options for preparing it like another asanas or how to use props (like in Iyengar style).
The book have a guide for muscles used in every asana or involved in it.
I expect I'll be getting great value from this series for many years to come.
