Very good

This book is great when you need to get a practice into your day. May not be for beginners. I am very familliar with yoga positions, so the stick figures are perfect, can be mostly fit on one page so you dont have to flip. If you're like me, a city girl, practice is often thrown throughout the day when I can - mornings, evenings - classes are a rarity for me. So no matter how much time you've got, this book can give you something to do.

Have you found yoga books to be overwhelming?

Then this book may be for you. I've tried book after book about yoga. After all, yoga sounds so great. But I've never been able to successfully get through even one routine. Either the routines are WAY too long for me (consider the book of "beginner's yoga" I bought that began with an hour long routine) or the descriptions of the poses are so detailed and intricate that I cannot hold the information in my head. No one can throw either of those accusations at this book! I mastered the 5 minute routine, and I've moved on to the 15 minute routine. For once in my life, I feel some measure of success with yoga. Yes, the poses are not described in minute detail, but for those of us who tend to get bogged down in minutiae, that is most likely an advantage. I'm figuring that an attempt at the pose is a good beginning. If I manage to master this entire book, perhaps I'll look for a book with all the detail to fix the way I'm doing the poses. Until then, some exercise is better than no exercise!

LOVE OM Yoga!

I have had many yoga books and CDs over the past 7 years, and the OM series is the best. Easy to use and to understand, and the colorful drawings are a nice break from the boring black and white photos of skinny people in leotards!

Handy for the experienced beginner

I love that this book has practices from 5-90 minutes but the instructions and illustrations may be too succinct for some. For instance, the locust pose has virtually no instructions and the stick figure just barely illustrates the pose. The poses generally don't mention modifications beyond the advice to bend the knees in forward bending if you're inflexible. For those with some experience the pared down written instructions and stick figures may be sufficient cues for practicing. The preface to each practice is wise and light-hearted, as is the overall tone of the book, which lies nicely flat for ease of use.

A delightful beginners guide to OM Yoga

I was interested in learning yoga, so I went to the bookstore and looked through the yoga section. This book stood out. Once I looked inside, I knew it was the right book to start with. Cyndi Lee has organized this book into sections: 5 minute yoga session, 15 minute session, 30, 60 and 90 minute sessions, so that you can fit yoga into your schedual. The routines are clearly laid out using sute stick figure drawings that are easy to follow, then each position is described by what you should be feeling, and how to use each position. This makes this book easy to follow for beginners like me. Not only did just one session make me feel relaxed and healthy, but I was in touch with my body. I highly reccomend this book to anyone even remotely interested in starting yoga, as it makes it easy, and you teach yourself. Thanks to Cyndi for making such a wonderful book that has brought the wonderful rewards of yoga into my life.
