On the one hand I appreciate that this book is a simple and easy to follow guide to yoga. She separates the workouts into different body parts. The problem is that each workout is only 10 minutes long, and she gives you absolutely no instruction on how to put the workouts together if you want a longer workout. It seems like it would have been easy to just explain how to order the workouts so you can get a longer workout, but she failed to do this.

I took hatha yoga classes for about six months in the past (a few years ago), and now I'm getting back into yoga mostly at home. I definitely subscribe to the no-Om philosophy of yoga. I don't do yoga because I want to hear about my sun and moon energy - I do it to build strength and flexibility. This book does a good job of explaining how to do the poses, the benefits of each pose, and how to move from one pose to the next. The book includes a good variety of basic and intermediate poses. They make a point of avoiding the "human pretzel contest" but they do include some more challenging poses. This book is a quick read but I refer to it regularly in my home yoga practice to find new poses to address a problem (tight lower back, or tight chest, for example) or to review a pose that I haven't done in a long time. It lives in my yoga corner now for easy access!

Written to filter out all the eastern mysticism and religious overtones that too many Yoga instructors want to inflict on new students. Gets right to the meat of using breathing and Yoga postures to good effect for exercise and rehabilitation healing.

This is a short spurt, non-fad yoga book with clear instructions, pictures and alternate poses. It is even broken down into chapters to target specific body regions. Extremely practical. Tends to be mostly yang as opposed to yin yoga for anyone who knows the distinction (active, more strenuous style versus passive, more deep tissue stretching).

As a relatively new Yogi, reading "The No Om Zone" has really helped to improve my practice. It provides a level of instruction that can often be hard to get in a packed yoga class. It is chockfull of photos that have been very useful in understanding the exact positioning of each body part during a pose. I feel my alignment has definitely improved since reading the book. Also, anatomy and physiology are discussed in a very useful, easy-to-understand manner, not in the cumbersome, overwhelming way of many fitness books. Lastly, as an Executive with a very hectic schedule, the 8 minute workout routines are a godsend!

I borrow a lot of books from the library, and if I find myself wishing I didn't have to return them, I feel good about going ahead and purchasing a copy. From the layout of the chapters to the targeted routines, the only thing I would change is to have a few more routines, which incorporate more than one target area, laid out somewhere in the book. I suppose I can give up that bit of laziness though and do it myself. ;-)

The fact that I regularly take class with Kimberly will, I trust, demonstrate that I not only talk the talk about her wonderful new book, but I walk the walk, as well. Kimberly's approach to yoga, which The No OM Zone is steeped in, really works for me. And I've taken yoga (on and off) since 1977. You do the math, I'll do The No OM Zone. Why? Because Kimberly's approach to yoga--straightforward, unpretentious and rock-solid technically--is the only one that's kept me practicing consistently. And the book makes it easy for those of you who can't make it to her classes regularly to benefit from that same accessible, no-BS style. The No OM Zone, with its short and targeted sessions and thorough-yet-concise insights into alignment and anatomy, is the perfect yoga primer for today. It moves along nicely...to get you moving. And though it's perfect for newcomers to yoga, it's a great reference, period. Kimberly demonstrates in The No OM Zone how yoga can help keep active people injury-free. As someone who for many years had to be intact physically to make a living (I was a longtime professional dancer then taught for years), I know when someone is guiding me properly in terms of injury-prevention, strength and flexibility, working safely and realistically. That's exactly what Kimberly does in The No OM Zone. And she's not at all precious about it. Such a breath of fresh air. The book and the author. Yoga skeptics take note: No gongs and whistle here, just accessible, practical fitness.

I enjoy this book a lot. It gives good basic information without pushing the whole yoga "program".
