My rating: 5 Stars
My opinion: This book is so much more than what I even thought it was going to be. As I find myself utilizing yoga as my life becomes more hectic and stressful, I found this book to be an absolutely dynamic read that will be going into my Amazon cart. It is very rare that I will purchase a book once I have reviewed it. This only occurs maybe once to twice per year, but this book definitely fits into that category.
This book not only discusses yoga poses, but works with readers to identify, target and address causes of stress and anxiety, which really stood out to me. One of the things that was most important to me was that this book didn't have the "new age" feeling to it that I have seen in other yoga books. I found that really drew me to it. and I was more receptive to what the authors were saying.
