Great for Beginners

I bought this book while deployed in Kosovo and I absolutely love it. The spiral binding makes it easy to look at while performing the exercises and the tabbed sections make for quick reference. I had never done Yoga before and this book really made it easy. I'm still not perfect at some of the exercises, but even though I sometimes stumble while trying some of the balancing poses, I still am able to laugh at myself and realize it's going to take work and dedication to become proficient at it. This book makes Yoga fun and uplifting. Don't hesitate to try it!

Truly easy (but challenging) daily yoga

I love this book! I take a weekly class, but this book gave me the tools to incorporate yoga into my daily schedule. The routines are short (15 minutes or so, though you can make them longer if you want to), there's variety so each day focuses on different challenges, and everything's well explained.My favorite features are: 1. there's a single-glance spread of the day's poses (no flipping while you're doing the routine!) as well as detailed drawings/descriptions of each pose so you can check your form, 2. the spiral binding, which makes it easy to lie open flat and flip as needed, 3. there are 'variations' of the more difficult poses, so it truly can be used by beginners and more advanced practitioners, and 4. it isn't overly wordy - just practical and straightforward.If you're interested in trying yoga out, take the occasional class, or are just looking for a new way to approach your practice, TRY THIS!!

Step By Step Yoga

Cyndi Lee has given those who practice yoga a practical and useful book, even for beginners. The book was written and illustrated by Cyndi, who explains easily the concepts of yoga and the easy to understand illustrations demonstrate the proper way to do each pose. The book is divided into 9 sections, by tabs. The Daily Warm Up, plus Daily Pratice guides for each day of the week, as well as a Recipes section which helps readers put together their own routines. The book also explains the proper way to sit and breathe, as well as the meaning of Om. Each day is a different day; Sunday (Restorative poses, they create a sense of relaxed awareness and teach us how to receive); Monday (Sun Salute, generates energy and creates heat in the body); Tuesday (Standing poses, create strength and develop correct posture); Wednesday (Balancing poses, teach harmony of effort and release inner and outer awareness); Thursday (Seated Poses, calming to the mind and rejuvenating to the organs); Friday (Back bends, encourage us to be brave and openhearted); and Saturday (Inversions, which rejuvenate the entire body/mind system). As well she goes into detail with meditation. To quote the book it says "The practice of yoga is not about trying to be different from who you are, but rather understanding that we all have many aspects and that we are vast enough to contain numerous emotions and qualities." This could not be more true. This is a wonderful book for any yoga fan, very helpful and useful.

Five stars for Cyndi Lee

Is your schedule awfully hectic but you still want to manage to stay fit and pliant? You crave spirituality but all that Sanskrit mumbo-jumbo seems too removed from your everyday concerns? Then this is the perfect no-nonsense yoga system to shoehorn into your busy agenda. Beyond the nifty presentation you will find amazingly intense (and yet positively short) routines that will do wonders for your posture and flexibility, and tips on how to combine them when you have more time (that ever dwindling commodity) available to you. The simple guidelines will positively seep into your psyche and boost your living quality as well. Whether you're fit or have rusted down the years, there's no way you'll miss any exercise. Besides, you will be happy to keep the book handy for its breathing and relaxation routines to wind down after a stressful day. You can do many things for others, but the time you spend devoting yourself to OM YOGA is the best gift you'll ever do to yourself, maybe the only one throughout a busy day. Five stars for Cyndi!

I Love Yoga

This book is very informative without being overly technical. I didn't believe I could do a good home yoga practice on my own. But first I got OM yoga in a box and then I got this book and between the two of them, I start every day with yoga on my own. It's really been great for my body (not to mention my spirit).
