Top critical review
Reviewed in the United States on May 13, 2019
I was so looking forward to reading this book. I'm going YTT and this book came with recommendations. On reading it, the poses are crazy advanced--and present higher risk of injury than I'm willing to accept. I'm baffled how this book has such good reviews--I think the layout is poor (it doesn't progress from beginner to advanced postures or any clear sequence. If I'd known how advanced this was (lots of arm balance, inversions) I'd have skipped it. Also, the poses are all in sanskrit and the index doesn't have the typical names so you can't reference them that way either. I was looking for a book with clear instructions to help me explain postures to students, but this is not going to fit that need. I just ordered the "bible" and hoping to have better luck there.
