I really enjoyed reading Yoga and the Twelve-Step Path. Even though I do yoga on my own I knew very little about it. Now I feel I can understand the poses so much better and can go back to this book whenever I have a question. I loved how clear it was in explaining the different kinds of yoga. It deals with recovery but I don't feel you have to be going through that to get the benefits. This book offers so much good information and was very easy to follow. I like how it was written with honesty and went into great detail for the reader to understand the benfits of yoga in everyday life. I can tell there was a ton of research that went into writing this book. It is very impressive and I would suggest it to all my friends.
