The Lotus and the Stars, written by Rob and Trish MacGregor, is a fabulous book for beginner yoga students who want more out of yoga as well as experienced students who are interested in deepening their personal practice. The book is well written and gives lots of examples of how to do the postures. I love the concept of how to physically connect the inherent energies that are unique to particular sun signs into a yoga practice. The book also offers suggestions to ways of handling everyday problems and situations. The idea of connecting astrology with yoga is great-I can't believe that it hasn't been thought of before!
