    I just got this book today, so I haven’t had a chance to go through every single page, but I am so impressed! It includes:

    * a brief overview of the history of yoga
    * language of yoga
    * benefits of yoga
    * answers to common questions on yoga
    * touches on some of the deeper spiritual aspects of yoga (enough to give a taste of it, but not to overwhelm)
    * how yoga keeps you fit
    * conscious eating and even includes a sample meal plan with a few recipes!

    That’s just the first 40 pages :) THEN the book goes onto:

    * a thorough break down of every essential yoga pose with beautiful photographic spreads that have anatomical cues
    * fun 15 minute sequences you can do at home to target different parts of the body (ie.legs, arms, butt, etc…), special health-focused sequences (ie. pms, hangover, carpal tunnel, back pain, etc…), performance sequences (ie. basketball, golf, climbing, etc.), emotional health (ie. anxiety, relaxation, broken heart, etc…) and much MORE!

    I am a yoga teacher and I would recommend this to any student seeking to perfect their asanas and gain a general understanding of yogic philosophy. However, if you’re looking to get deep into the philosophy of yoga, this would not be the book I recommend. There are many other yoga books on anatomy and philosophy. However, I found this book to be very user friendly and well thought out guide to deepening your yogic practice! I believe that every yogi and/or yogini would benefit from having this book in their library.

    I teach yoga and a student brought a copy to class to ask my opinion. I spent some time with it and discovered that Kathryn Budig has created a book very much like herself–it’s practical, informative, and downright entertaining. She appreciates the fact that many woman have incorporated yoga into their lives for all kinds of practical reasons, but mainly because it makes them feel good. She provides all of the basic information a beginner or an experienced yogini might need about the many questions that can arise during your practice, and has also shown how to use some of the various poses as a remedy for many of the common challanges we face in our daily lives. If you’re interested, she has covered pretty much the full gamut of yoga topics (breathing techniques, dealing with injuries, meditation, “I’m not flexible”, etc.) and you can pick and choose to read about those that pique your curiosity. The photography is stunning, and the photos are of real people who have developed some proficiency so that you can have an idea of where you may be headed. There is really good information here and it’s not presented in some obtuse, philosophical and hard to comprehend manner, nor does she demand that you adhere to the “my way or the highway” mode of teaching–like I said before, it’s very practical, informative and good advice on how to incorporate yoga into your daily life and reap its many benefits. I’m recommending it to all of my women students, and to those men who aren’t put off by the “women’s health” part of the title. Good stuff, entertaining, and highly recommended.
