For a person who has never attempted yoga before, it can seem downright daunting. Not anymore! No one is watching, so now is the perfect time to begin your at-home yoga practice.
With full-color, step-by-step illustrations for the absolute beginner, The Idiot's Guide to Yoga teaches dozens of basic yoga poses. In these pages, you will see clearly see how every aspect of a pose is executed. You don't have to be the most flexible or coordinated person out there—this book eases you into poses with instructions on how to modify so it works for your ability.
Poses are grouped in small sections, with a practice sequence at the end to show how to connect the poses into a flow (that's yoga talk for routine). This book grows with you: when you've mastered the basic poses and become more flexible, you can move on to more advanced techniques and more challenging modifications. Best of all, you'll also learn how to string together poses into full flows that target particular issues such as stress and flexibility.
Features include:

   • Clear, comprehensive color step-by-step instructions for dozens of basic yoga poses. 

   • Handy "Keeping It Easy" sidebars show ways to modify the poses for the less flexible.
   • Advanced techniques show you how to go further into poses after you have mastered them.
   • Illustrated flows found in yoga classes, each targeting a particular area (stress relief, flexibility, meditation, etc.).
