    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Beginners Guide to Yoga
    ByBrian Savianoon March 2, 2013
    I have always wanted to try yoga for the many benefits but have always been intimidated for one reason or another. This book breaks it down and makes yoga easy to understand. The book is nicely filled with great colorful pictures that decribe each yoga pose. As a martial arts student, I found that I actually was doing a lot of the moves in this book without knowing it as part of my stretching exercises. This book gives tips how to improve the moves I was doing for maximum results. BTW, just got done trying some of these exercises and my back feels better already.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice

    I got this book on my Kindle so I could get started with Yoga. It is very easy to understand and there are illustrations. They said to hold the poses for like 30 seconds or so; I try and hold the poses for much longer, that seems to produce more significant results. I really like the pose where you bend over at the hips and try and place your hands on the floor. This pose seems to focus on activating the root chakra(base of the spine). When I did that pose for like 5-10 minutes, I could feel a vibration in the base of my spine. I believe that the root chakra is primarily for grounding our consciousness. I believe that humanity is destined for far greater things than merely being grounded, but nevertheless such a pose surely has many uses and applications. I think you will really like this book.
