    "I could never get my self to do yoga, I always felt as though I could never find the right yoga sequence for my level of skill (beginner) and my needs. Then I read this book/guide and It made it so easy to find the right Yoga sequences for me! I can totally see why they call it the Yoga bible"

    "I didn't find this guide too helpful. It is geared toward a heavier female demographic and as a slim man I didn't identify much with it. I also want to do yoga to relieve lower back pain and I didn't see anything about that, or even about basic yoga poses. I found it to be more of a mentality guide than a practical yoga guide."

    "This is a decent solution if you need a resource but I would have liked something more creative. It does solve the problem, but a simple search on youtube would've provided me with similar results and is fairly low effort. I feel like if I had this problem I would want a resource that I could keep going back to, like a comprehensive blog site that had videos coming out consistently and more step by step tutorials and written descriptions for doing moves, maybe even with a beginner's or getting started guide."

The convenience of being able to do this in my living room and not wasting 25 minutes on the road just to get to my yoga class, makes me able to do more yoga.

    "This is actually pretty cool. My wife wanted to try yoga and decided we could do it together. Of course she didn't consult me on that decision. I begrudgingly accepted and we tried Brett Larkin. I actually loved the channel. Some "beginner" classes assume that you can already twist yourself into a pretzel but not this one. They teach you from the ground up which lessons the frustration of learning greatly. Great workout. I highly recommend this channel."

It's not really a technical resource for the more experienced practitioner, but rather, a good way to engage one's family in getting started with basic concepts and ideas related to yoga."
