Review by JoWright
The book is divided into different secions in order to explain not only the physical aspects of yoga - the asanas- but also, the mental and spiritual aspects of yoga. Bikram has a no-nonesense and no-excuses approach to yoga. He writes as though he is talking directly to you and encourages everyone to get started with his style, specifically designed for issues in North America such as knee, hip and back problems. It is a delightful read, well organized, and inspiring.
