I took a YogaFit class in college and really enjoyed it. On my break from school I was afraid Id get out of shape so I found this book. I liked it so much I sent one to my yoga buddy for her birthday! Read full review

What the heck is a preface about animal protection doing in a yogafit book? Yogafit is supposed to be for everybody and every body but I put the book down after reading that preface. If someone thought it was going to motivate me to read further then the plan backfired. I may not ever go on to practice yogafit now.
.
Beth would be well advised to take that preface out if she wants the program to be for everyone. It is misplaced politics. If I wanted to read about animal protection I wouldn't have purchased a book on yoga, which was required for the Level 1 Instructors Workshop.
