I've been doing yoga for about a year and a half, and I this book has been a very helpful and handy resource. It contains a brief history of yoga, descriptions of the various types of yoga, an illustrated guide to all of the most common poses, advice for students and aspiring students, advice on diet, advice on sequencing poses and lists of additional resources. To top it off, this is a beautifully designed book with very attractive photography. This book would be a fine gift or investment for any yoga student.
A beautiful book inside and out makes this a perfect gift book.
Inside beautiful photos, descriptions of poses, illustrations of poses. Many of the pages have serene borders or backgrounds.
Outside the hard binding is covered with satin with a wooden piece that slips into loop that keeps the book closed.
