Positive points: I do find that all the exercises (except the plough and modified headstand) are very easy to perform. This book is good for people like me who like to exercise alone and on my own time (full time student here). Overall this author does not encourage straining and exercises are low-impact. I do feel more relaxed just due to exercising, and performing the deep breathing exercises feels really good. Flexibility-wise I only notice a little improvement. I have stiff back/shoulders and the stiffness has only lessened a little for me.
Right now I do my best for each exercise. I don't like some of them (headstands/head massage) but I still talk myself into doing them. I don't think I will feel comfortable doing a full-on headstand or similar position so I will only perform to *my* extreme position (which is highly emphasized)
Nutshell: Overall a very easy to follow book, exercises generally easy, be careful when performing exercises involving spine!

This is a yoga plan that I have dabbled in, here and there for 20 years. My first book was your typical paperback size and I found it difficult to keep my page position. Read morePublished 22 months ago by BJohnston
