4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Cold in Canada on March 1 2011
Format: Paperback
I have dabbled in yoga over the last several years and this is by far one of the best books that I have purchased. I have tried several of the routines that Tara Stiles has developed with great results; that is, I feel calmer and my muscles really feel the lengthening and strengthening that they were meant to. The routines are short enough to perform when you are trying to fit in a little bit of fitness into your day, or double up a few of the workouts and stretch your session into a longer one for a total body workout. The abdominal routine alone will work wonders!!

This book was so much more then I expected. Not only did it have fantastic yoga poses and descriptions in it, but it also posses some really good advice, and an easy categorization of yoga for whatever your need may be. Would definitely recommend, and I have!

Love It! Sept. 13 2010
By Elle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am 50 years old and out of shape. I've been really bummed out since I have had trouble finding some type of exercise I can stick with. Then I found Tara Stiles on youtube, and I got hooked. I always avoided yoga, thinking it was too difficult for someone like me, but she shows even the most out of shape person how to get started and how to feel comfortable with where you are now. I got the book, and it's a wonderful book on it's own, since it gives some really good ideas, tips, and encouragement. Coupled with her youtube videos, it's really all you need to start a yoga practice on your own time, in your own place if that's what you want. (It's good to see the poses in action, and to use the book as a reference for more detail behind the poses.) It also gives information for more advanced poses, so I think it would be great even if you're not a beginner like me. Her enthusiasm is contagious, and if someone can make me enthusiastic about exercise, that's saying something. I have also started to use her meditation and breathing tips, which I probably wouldn't have done in the past either. I think it's great she is bringing yoga to everyone. I'd recommend this book to anyone interested in improving mental and physical health. And she makes it fun.

Get excited about yoga! Oct. 30 2010
By Della Hall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Tara Stiles teaches yoga in a light-hearted realistic way. She understands that we can't all bend our bodies into pretzels and teaches us to accept ourselves where we are. She teaches yoga in a playful way. I have never been a big sports person, and always disliked running as I have asthma and vertigo. Yoga to the rescue! Yoga is not just stretching - it is a workout! I love this book because it is divided up into different sequences for different goals or problems (i.e. arm toning or insomnia). And, as per her teachings, you can do each sequence in just 15 minutes a day. This book makes doing yoga easy: the pictures and instructions are clear, the tone is motivating, and you can't say you don't have 15 minutes to spare!

Tara Stiles Rocks Sept. 6 2010
By Missyplaymate3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Slim Calm Sexy Yoga is a great book for anyone interested in the benefits of yoga. In her first book Ms. Tara Stiles talks about what yoga can do for your mind, body and soul. Tara will teach the many benefits of doing yoga on a regular basis. Ms. Stiles says yoga can help you lose weight, improve your memory and have a better orgasm. She shares great tips and advice on how yoga can help with headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome (hello too much time online hehe) and heart disease. She shows the different yoga poses and tells you how often you should do them to heal whatever ails you. Tara gives a brief introduction about what led her to yoga. This book is a wonderful reliable reference guide, great pictures and good reading for anyone interested in yoga. One of my favorite chapters in the book is chapter two. She talks about the three important principles of yoga. Those three principles are breathing, meditation and alignment. Tara makes these points because we need to slow down and take some time for ourselves. All of the chapters you will find tips from Tara that I found to be useful. Tara recently started a v log on [...]. I think its great and Tara rocks.

Excellent yoga book with great photos of poses Oct. 19 2010
By j-potatoes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've been practicing yoga for nearly a year and still very new to yoga. This book has large colorful photos showing each of the yoga poses along with instructions. The photos are especially helpful to understand the poses. Too many books have too many words and lack photos to show you how to properly perform a pose.

The design of the book is beautiful with large easy to read typeface and great photos to accompany each pose. If you are a visual learner, then this is the yoga book for you.

The book also has program designs if you want to:

improve flexibility
build stamina
improve strength
deal with back problems
allergy problems
headaches

CONS: Book design: What I don't like about the book is that it is a bit too glossy and light reflects off the pages. Also there is not enough space between the text and the spine of the book. I have to fold down the pages to see the text closer to the book spine.

Great with a Little Experience! Dec 21 2010
By km613 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love this book and have been using it often since I purchased it. I have taken enough yoga classes with an instructor that it made it safe and easy to enjoy doing it at home with this book. I would not suggest doing this without any previous yoga knowledge.
