Book Overview

Internationally renowned yoga instructor Rodney Yee is the instructor of more than 26 best-selling yoga videos. In Moving toward Balance, he outlines an eight-week program of yoga postures, meditation, and breath awareness designed to lead us toward the emotional and physical balance we all crave in life. Each week introduces a new category of poses--forward bends, twists, backbends, inversions shown with variations to accommodate different levels of strength and flexibility. Along with the instruction, the text explains the significance of each pose and how it contributes on physiological and psychological levels to a complete sense of balance.

At the core of Moving toward Balance is its emphasis on a home practice, enabling you to focus on what works best for your own body. Suitable for yoga students of any level, each lesson is illustrated with full-color photography and is laid out in sequential order, so there is no need to flip back and forth to follow along. There are also chapters on customizing your basic practice to address specific concerns such as lower back pain or PMS, as well as ideas to help keep your newfound practice thriving. Filled with years of Rodney's teaching expertise and more than 300 photographs, Moving toward Balance is the link that you've been searching for between the classroom and the home.

   Wonderful, amazing book by a great Yogi.
Awesome book. There are pictures with the step by step guide. Good guidelines for practicing. There are several versions of poses that work best for you. Don't eat these things or how much this will change your life, it's all preached. Following this book will change your life. It works well for a yoga class at home or for a yoga practice at home. You should get a mat, blocks, straps, bolsters, and lightweight blankets at the same time you get the book. You' ll need them.
   Yoga as PT
I find myself pacing myself to avoid injury when I reach the head stands and shoulder stands in week 5. I would love to have a training app or video that could be paused so that I could appreciate yoga in a new way.
   guidebooks, yoga
Yee's work is helpful as a new yoga student. He gives rationale behind each of the poses, and gives a bit of coaching for the neophyte as to how to align and anticipate each asana. I want to savor the book, page by page, rather than rushing through it. As yoga has turned out to be a great experience, why would anyone want to rush it? The book is large and well done, and it has many illustrations that are easy to follow. This is also a companion for your time on the mat.
   I Love Rodney Yee
I keep giving this book to friends because it is my third copy. I try to get this program in my life once a year. It gives you the chance to learn yoga in a way that is personal to you. It takes 6 days a week for 8 weeks of dedication. The poses are difficult but there are alternatives.
   Not just routines or rhetoric but real plans for progressing in your practice
I'm considering having this book spiralized. It's pretty good at showing you how to warm up. Yee goes in depth as to how to make wheel pose a reality. Sometimes I stay there for a few weeks, because some of the poses are very detoxifying. It's a funny thing. A good book.
A good book for beginners to put together a home practice. Although, so far, I don't follow his sequence or do all of his suggested poses, preferring for the time being, to stick with what I' ve come up with on my own, I learned so much about balancing and finding a workable approach to home practice. I was reassured by the book that the path I'm on is sound. Thank you.
   Gorgeous book
Many other reviewers have laid out the subject matter of this book, so I will just add that this is an absolutely beautiful book, with glossy pages and many beautiful full- color photos. It's a pleasure to look at. Yee's approach is straightforward. I have been trying to figure out how to build a personal practice, so I am excited to read this book. I' ve taken many yoga classes, but didn't know how to do it on my own. The book is the answer. It was very excited! It's!
   Revered by my friend who teaches Yoga
It tells you how long to hold a pose and how to do variations of it to help you build strength and balance. I will feel confident going to class when I master these poses. It tells you how to hold your foot in the poses. Love it.
