Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Hatha yoga teacher, practicing Tibetan Buddhist, and founder of the Om Yoga Center in Manhattan, Lee (Om Yoga) here combines the basic teachings of Buddhism and meditation with yoga instruction. The book is an easy introduction to Buddhism, stating that our bodies are part of the world's body; our minds are part of the world's mind. Each chapter focuses on the yoga body and Buddha mind, approaching the poses from both points of view. Meditation is about waking up to thought processes and experiencing all states of mind. Lee has a chapter simply on how to stand. Every sequence of poses is separated into levels for beginning, intermediate, and advanced students. Clear alignment instruction accompanies the individual asanas, which are illustrated with helpful photographs. The book closes with three yoga class programs, illustrated with stick figures. This is a useful and workable manual to develop a meditation and yoga practice. Lee's sensible suggestions make the poses come alive. A valuable asset to yoga collections.--Dede Fellrath, Tampa Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
