Reviews - What do customers think about Yoga Explained: A New Step-by-Step Approach to Understanding and Practicing Yoga?
Iyengar Yoga fans take note of this book! Feb 14, 2006
Once again, Mira Mehta has proven herself to be a valuable writer on the art of yoga. Although there are many yoga books available on the market today, her previous works "Yoga: The Iyengar Way" and "How To Use Yoga" remain two of my most used and treasured.
This new book is great for beginners. Mehta writes in a manner that is clear and not intimidating. The pictures are beautiful and the suggested yoga routines (each based on a theme such as stretching the arms and legs) are well thought out. Co-author, Krishna S. Arjunwadkar, adds yoga philosophy throughout the book - giving the reader an insight into the deeper mysteries of yoga.
For those of us who have been practicing for quite some time, there is still much here to appreciate. For fans of Iyengar yoga, the precision and spirit of Iyengar shines brightly throughout the entire book. Mira Mehta is most likely one of the best authors on Iyengar yoga - second to BKS Iyengar himself!
One of the best books on Yoga Aug 7, 2005
I think that it is one of the best books about Yoga. There are many photos and detailed explanation on how to perform postures and also many tips for beginners. I also found extremely useful the suggestion to perform with the help of props.
