The best thing about this book is how it gives you ideas on how to put things together -- it's well organized, it doesn't have pictures of weird yogis in spandex short shorts, and is easy to flip through. The only downside is that some of the poses are difficult to unpick -- the stick figures are uncomplicated, but that works for and against them at times.

This book is illustrated with the author's own stick-figures. Most of the time the stick-figures are awesome, because for a lot of poses (especially if you're already part of a class) the little notes are all you need to get your home practice going.

This is one of the first yoga books I purchased and I learned a great deal about putting practices together by using some of Lee's moves as a foundation. There is a different practice for each day of the week to keep practitioners from doing the sam
A great little do-it-yourself yoga book. Glad I've had the experience of teacher-led classes, though, as the adorable stick figure drawings aren't super clear.
Recommended by my instructor. It's a handy book to have around, I like that it's spiral bound. By far the best within my yoga collection. I think it's probably a little easier to use if you already have a basic understanding of yoga(like a few beginner's classes).
This is similar to what we're doing in classes with nice annotated stick figure drawings that convey the poses better than most photo books I've seen. Also has good sets of poses to work on different areas as well as a daily warmup.

I was introduced to this book a few years ago having never done any sort of yoga. The explanations are simple and the pictures of the moves are stick figures yet its fun and understandable!
Great warmup followed by seven different routines for each day of the week. Stick figures illustrations are really easy to follow.

This is a great book for people who want to practice at home but need help with variety and sequencing.

going to start this tomorrow May 6th 2009 it is illustrated with stick figures LOL looks like fun sorta
The Sunday poses are a little too advanced for me, but overall it was a nice little book.
Nicely organized and I love the way the stick figures represent the poses.
Great book! Really simple yoga you can do at home in 15-20 minutes.
Insightful but too slight to warrant more than 3 stars.
Great for when I can't make it to class.
