Overview

For a person who has never attempted yoga before, it can seem downright daunting. Not anymore! Geared toward the absolute beginner, Idiot's Guides®: Yoga teaches dozens of basic yoga poses using a series of full-color, step-by-step illustrations that allow the reader to clearly see how every aspect of a pose is executed. Realizing that most people who are new to yoga won't be the most flexible or coordinated, Idiot's Guides®: Yoga eases the beginner into poses with sidebars demonstrating how to modify the poses for the less flexible and warnings to correct improper postures. The poses are also grouped in small sections, with a practice sequence at the end to show how to connect the poses into a routine. Idiot's Guides®: Yoga also grows with the reader: when they've mastered the basic poses and become more flexible, they can move on to more advanced techniques section for more challenging modifications to the basic poses. Best of all, the reader also learns how to string together poses into full routines that target particular issues such as stress and flexibility. Features include:



- Clear, comprehensive color step-by-step instructions for dozens of basic yoga poses



- Handy "Keeping It Easy" sidebars show ways to modify the poses for the less flexible



- Advanced techniques show the reader how to go further into poses after they have mastered them



- Sequences illustrate routines found in yoga classes, each targeting a particular area (stress relief, flexibility, meditation, etc.)
