Had to read this for the Level 1 course, and though it's mostly walking you through poses and teaching, it was useful. YogaFit makes yoga accessible to people who aren't stereotypical *pretzel people* or could be put off by the stereotypical yoga class. Thanks to Beth Shaw, seniors, people with handicaps, busy moms, people who were told by MDs to try yoga but don't know where to start (or went to a class they didn't like) have an amazing option.

It's not something to just sit down and enjoy-----t

I'm currently reading this because it's required reading for YogaFit Level 1 training. There are other books that I have seen and read that are more in-depth for each of the asanas but this would be good for someone fairly new to yoga that wants an Americanized book to help them further their home practice (there are no Sanskrit names to the poses and many useful yoga asanas are missing).

I think this book would be a good primer for someone new to yoga. It show you poses and how to build a practice without the Sanskrit asana names that some can find rather intimidating.

Beth Shaw's Yogafit would also work well for a more-seasoned yoga practioner, however, I found the omission of the Sanskrit names of the asanas to be a bit off-putting. I understand her methodology here, but I think more serious yogis and yoginis will want to know the Sanskrit names.

Have completed my first reading of this required book for my YogaFit Level 1 training coming up in January 2013! Easy to understand. My Yoga teacher in Bella Vista was trained by YogaFit, so she teaches from this book. I am looking forward to continuing to learn and grow in my knowledge and love of Yoga.

I read this book in anticipation of taking the level 1 course. I found it a good "basics" book and a nice reference of different types of sequences to start with and expand upon as your practice grows. I find the sequences helpful when I am preparing to teach classes.

Very interesting and informative. Easy to follow. May read it through once more, because I want it to really sink in. ;)
Slow day at work today...need to read this for a class in May. Not too much reading, much of it is poses and 3 sample programs. Good info.

Like others, thus is required prior to participation in a Yoga Fit program. Great marketing ploy at $26. Actually, learned from it and have implemented
Some into my classes.

Another book to add to my yoga collection. I'm thinking of taking the Level 1 course. I'm enrolled in a teacher certification course now but am a sponge and need more.

Great pics and description of poses. Very clear explanations combined with some eastern philosophy..makes it pretty easy to make your yoga practice applicable to all parts of your life.
