If you've never tried yoga before and feel intimidated by the more advanced moves of other types of yoga this is a great book for you. I took the class back in college and still use it now that I am in the military. All I have to say is wow! After coming back from training and trying the sets again I realized how great it really was.
He also includes a section for runners and skiers in this book that athletes might find helpful.
If your ever attending UAA make sure to try and attend the class!
