Big Book of Yoga

WH Big Book of Yoga
The Big Book of Yoga arrived by FedEx today and just as I needed it. Authored by the beautiful (inside and out) Kathryn Budig, a full-time yoga instructor and very wise woman.
The first chapter, Ready, Set, Om begins "If you picked up this book, you're probably one of three types of people: either you're curious about yoga, you want to deepen your practice, or you're just a sucker for pretty pictures."
Tick, tick and tick!

There are beautifully photographed guides to poses and sequences by genuine, actual yoga instructors (not bored-looking models!) Here's what I'm loving...
Rejuvenating, uninterrupted sleep with the soothing P.M Yoga workout on p. 170.
Tight or sore from running or cross-training? Ease your muscles with the restorative poses on p. 155.

You can order it at Booktopia

Kathryn Budig
Kathryn Budig moved to LA at 21 initially to get into acting. As a lean, fit yogi she was told to lose 10kg to get any lead actress roles or be resigned to "the best friend". Racked with self-doubt she found that where she really felt peaceful and assured she was beautiful just as she was, was when practicing yoga.
Lately, I've been told I look great, which is a double-edged sword because actually I wasn't well and lost 5kg and I know I need it back on (at least) to function at my best! So, perhaps it's time we all stopped listening to other people and whether on the mat, or in a crowd, learn to be yogis from the inside-out.
