From Women's Health contributor and yoga expert Kathryn Budig-the essential, authoritative guide to yoga, for beginners and beyond.

Approximately 16 millions Americans now practice yoga on a regular basis. Devotees can't rave enough about this ancient art of meditation, breathing, and physical postures that calms the mind and slims the body.
Unlike fitness fads, yoga is worth the hype. The postures stretch and tone lean muscle mass and sculpt a strong and slender physique-burning up to 400 calories in a 90-minute session. But yoga does something even better. It's proven to reduce the biggest cause of weight gain-stress-which 43% of Americans say makes them overeat.

This definitive volume features:

- every essential pose to help readers lose weight and transform their bodies
- Total Body Yoga: targeted workouts in 15 minutes or less
- core-strengthening routines for hotter, more satisfying sex
- a healthy, mindful eating plan centered around calming, cleansing foods

Covering everything from basic postures to relaxation techniques to avoiding common injuries, The Women's Health Big Book of Yoga is the only guide readers need to achieve their fittest, healthiest, happiest selves.

This is a plain-language introduction to yoga that includes excellent photos, showing the poses. I learned a lot and think some of the other yoga sources will make more sense now. Certainly a stand-alone resource that can meet all your needs. Well done

This is a great book for anyone interested in starting yoga. It shows you pictures of many different poses and then incorporates them into sequences such as morning/night yoga, arms/core/ legs sequences, for back pain/headache/relaxation, yoga for runners, swimmers etc. There is definitely something for everyone, as the book shows different variations of the poses, and there is a lot of challenging ones too for those who are more experienced!
