Review by shanaqui
Handy little thing, but by virtue of it being so little, quite limited. A couple of poses I wanted to look up weren't in here at all. It has a lot of information on what yoga is and why people practice it, but not many poses. One handy thing it has is a little box suggesting the benefits of each separate pose, and also who shouldn't do the pose (e.g. people with high blood pressure, people with wrist injuries, etc).
