Moving Toward Balance: 8 Weeks of Yoga with Rodney Yee

Rodney Yee, Author, Michal Venera, Photographer, Nina Zolotow, With Rodale Press $24.99 (394p) ISBN 978-0-87596-921-3
Yee's trademark long dark ponytail, rock-hard body and constantly serene facial expression have comforted many stressed-out would-be yogi who watch his dozens of bestselling yoga videos. In this new work, he offers yoga practitioners a two-month regimen that they can adopt as a home practice. Yee promises that his regimen will bring readers""physical and emotional well-being,"" as well as""various insights... about the nature of yoga."" The book begins by covering practical concerns--how to prepare a home yoga practice, decide on practice times, set up a location and props--before proceeding to lay out the eight-week program, which tackles a different aspect of yoga each week (e.g.,""Moving Toward Balance"" and""Being Present""). Anatomy lessons, advice on breathing, copious photographs and detailed directions enhance this friendly guide, making it one of the most comprehensive and accessible yoga books on the market.
