Overall it is a helpful book for all levels of yoga practitioners. The methods for meridian stretching and breathing are especially helpful when combined with the images. Easy to check your posture and feel the stretch and clear out any stress and/or energies that no longer serve you. Definitely something to check out - especially if you've never tried any kind of yoga before or if you are looking to combine yoga with strengthening exercises. (There are some poses that focus on core strength and some energy martial arts sequences that are amazing!)
