Yoga Toolkit by Rica Lewis is an honest and slightly irreverant introduction to Yoga. It is sub-titled “A Beginner’s Guide to Finding Magic & Momentum on the Mat”.
There are no drawings or photographs of impossibly flexible people tangled in tendon-snapping poses.
Instead, we find simple explanations of basic concepts and some great advice. For example:
“So here’s the truth: If you discover you are good at yoga, check your posture.”
Imperfections are to be found in all things and my primary complaint about this book is that she gives wonderful advice and hints at so many interesting paths, that the book is too short. Like any good work, she leaves us wanting more.
Thank you, Rica!
