Of course, there are the obligatory shots of poses that very human beings who are not already experts in Yoga could possibly assume, and my guess is that the experts are not buying this book. I guess that sort of thing is meant to be inspirational and in some ways it is, despite my certain conviction that some of that stuff will remain forever beyond reach.
I would have liked a bit more information on how to put together a full integrated session - i.e., a series of poses and transitions for different work outs. Also maybe a bit more detail on how long to hold each position and how many repetitions of the position to do in a session would have been nice. Finally, at the end, where they do make some suggestions along these lines, they note that some of the positions suggested for the integrated work out are NOT illustrated in the main text. Very curious omission - why not?
In any case, I'm glad I got it and find it generally quite helpful; the minor deficiencies kept it from a 5 however.
Not only does Hatha Yoga Illustrated offer photographs of various poses (and the succession in which you need to achieve them) but also offers in-depth descriptions about gentle variations (for beginners or people with injuries etc. that may not be able to achieve a pose as is), breathing, and the ailments that each pose has the potential to relieve. The book also offers a bit about the philosophies of yoga. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, the book offers, at the back, a number of yoga sequences/routines you can put into practice once you are familiar and comfortable with the individual poses.
At the age of 38, I am literally in the best shape of my life. Through Pilates and Yoga I have been able to achieve a toned and slender body without the use (and potential injury factor) of weight training. This book has proven invaluable to me and I recommend it to anyone who is looking for an introduction to Yoga. I've never been more limber, flexible and focused. And all this from two books (The Pilates Body and Hatha Yoga Illustrated). If you work well on your own and are motivated to change for the better, you need look no further than this book for a terrific start.
I would suggest buying a yoga mat if you don't have one already...
