Many people wonder, "How can I ever perform yoga postures?" Austin's third book (after Yoga for Wimps and Meditation for Wimps) demonstrates more than 100 techniques that may enable participants to execute traditional postures that could be too difficult to perform without various props. By using wooden blocks, yoga mats, bolsters, walls, chairs, benches, straps, and other people, students can extend their bodies' capabilities to perform these asanas safely with proper body alignment and control while enjoying the health and psychological benefits that these poses have to offer. The instructions are clear, and the numerous black-and-white photographs are easy to follow. Both yoga teachers and students can apply Austin's techniques to their routines as a way to progress comfortably toward what could have been an unattainable goal. Her user-friendly book supplements works that describe how to perform basic yoga postures and would be serviceable in both public and academic libraries wishing to expand their collections on this topic.-Deborah Broocker, Georgia Perimeter Coll.
