I personally loved this book. I had never really done much Iyengar yoga and always enjoyed a more flowing practice, but found that I really liked the practices and how they built on each other. I learned things about the poses and my body that were certainly limiting my practice. With the help of this book I am now able to get into camel pose, something that I had only done once before in two years of on and off yoga. This book has shown me the proper poses for preparation and counter poses for many asanas and has helped bring and understanding to the poses and how they work together that I never had before.

I liked that each pose was given 3 variations to find out which is most comfortable for your level. I also enjoyed the "Point of Play" for the poses so you can find your comfort zone in each or maybe where you need work.

The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is because I think it might be very difficult to learn yoga solely from a book. I would recommend this book for anyone who has had a few classes or done a few instructional yoga dvd's that would help with good alignment and form. That way you can check yourself and it will help you to understand some of the descriptions used for each pose and the correct way to get into a pose or help with the flow of a sun salutation.

I have scanned and printed many of the practices in this book and take them on vacation with me because I have enjoyed them so much. I will certainly be going through this book again and again in my home practice. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0875969216, Paperback)

Internationally renowned yoga instructor Rodney Yee is the instructor of more than 26 best-selling yoga videos. In Moving toward Balance, he outlines an eight-week program of yoga postures, meditation, and breath awareness designed to lead us toward the emotional and physical balance we all crave in life. Each week introduces a new category of poses--forward bends, twists, backbends, inversions shown with variations to accommodate different levels of strength and flexibility. Along with the instruction, the text explains the significance of each pose and how it contributes on physiological and psychological levels to a complete sense of balance.

At the core of Moving toward Balance is its emphasis on a home practice, enabling you to focus on what works best for your own body. Suitable for yoga students of any level, each lesson is illustrated with full-color photography and is laid out in sequential order, so there is no need to flip back and forth to follow along. There are also chapters on customizing your basic practice to address specific concerns such as lower back pain or PMS, as well as ideas to help keep your newfound practice thriving. Filled with years of Rodney's teaching expertise and more than 300 photographs, Moving toward Balance is the link that you've been searching for between the classroom and the home.
