This is an excellent book with great illustarions for beginners. Each pose has been described in details with comments for students and teachers. There is chapter at the end with recommended daily schedule with pose pictures and reference to the chapter of the book. I am a beginner, go a class twice per week, and have checked several books from the Library on Yoga. If I could buy only one book on Yoga, this book would be my choice.
Great book! with instructions and photos demonstrating each pose.
