I love this book and recommend it to anyone who does yoga or teaches yoga. As a teacher, it really gave me good insight on how to position myself when adjusting students so I won't injure myself. I don't remember going over a lot of this stuff when I was in teacher training. we did go over it, but not in so much detail like this book and with variations.

Easy to read, great cues on how to get in and out of a pose for teachers to be. Illustrations are well done and description of poses make this book a five star. If anyone is looking to become a yoga teacher, this is one of those books you will come back to again and is that good!

This book is a great overview for yoga teachers to the most common postural adjustments. I didn't find anything new here, but it's a comprehensive review and provides both photographs and descriptions of each adjustment. I bought this book on Kindle and found that it was ill-suited to this format, with lots of blank pages or pages filled with just one quote.

This is a useful book for beginning yoga instructors. Instructions are provided on how to assist students so that they can maximize their poses without compromising their alignment. Prop suggestions are made, and also verbal prompts: "What you might say."

The book was a little antiseptic. It would have been more enjoyable with some anecdotal input from the author. The quotes lack a degree of inspiration. A chapter for chair yoga would be lovely to include in future editions with considerations t

This book is really only relevant if you're a yoga teacher, but for that I found it a WONDERFUL companion to learning how to do assists and adjustments on people. it's something that intimidates me and is hard to find good material on (since you mostly learn by doing) so I am very thankful to have this book as a follow-up to what I learned during teacher training. Now I just need to find people to practice on :D

Although I would not attempt many of the assisting suggestions in this book, I did find a lot of information that was helpful as I progressed through my yoga teacher training course. Remember when reading this to be mindful about what you and your students are comfortable with before putting any of these corrections/adjustments into practice.

Great book. Gets right down to how to adjust postures with helpful instructions not only for the teacher but also for the student.
