I thought this book is a great book for instructors of yoga. Her way of describing the yin/yang aspect is very clear along with the meridians in the body(which can be complicated). The pictures provided also will help anyone whether a teacher or a beginner student be able to follow along.
I started my yoga explorations in the late 60's. Today I have two daughters who teach yoga classes. I am not a beginner. But I stopped doing yoga years ago because of my painful scoliosis. This is a great book for those who prefer to do their yoga at home, at their own pace and level. My meditation path is different from Sarah's, but the book wouldn't be complete without Sarah's suggestions for meditation, as yoga is primarily a preparation for meditation. I do recommend this book highly for those who wish to slow down, heal themselves and and/or enter the world of yoga safely.
I had the opportunity to attend one of Sarah's classes. It was pure Yin, which is why I bought this book. I found it well written and with good suggestions.
