If you are looking to start yoga this is a great resource book. It is packed full of great information on the history, poses, how to eat, meditation, and making sequences. The author is direct without any added fluff. It is really a KISS (keep it simple stupid) book for people looking to expand their knowledge of yoga.  I have been practicing yoga for about a year now and found a lot of useful information in this book. I am not huge history person but I do want to know where yoga came from and the author tells us without rambling on and losing me. I love how clean and crisp the book is laid out. Each pose has a bit of information about the purpose, preceding pose, counter pose, precautions, the yoga term/name with the English name.

The section on nutrition is broken down into ways people can eat to be healthier without saying there is only one way to eat. The meditation section is direct to the point with five different meditations to learn. I found this to be the best meditation that I have found that is to the point and don't have me feeling overwhelmed in the end. I know I could sit down and do any one or all of the five with no problems on knowing how to do each meditation. I really want to learn how to make my own yoga sequence and this book had a really good breakdown making me feel more confident in being able to accomplish this on my own.

I give this a 5 out of 5 stars and highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn yoga.
