About Get Started: Yoga
Take the first step to mastering yoga with Get Started: Yoga, part of a new series of structured learning guides from DK where nothing is assumed and everything is explained. Each course follows the same structure: start simple and learn the basics, build on what you've learned, and then show off your new skills!
Get Started: Yoga teaches complete beginners the skills needed to master 49 yoga poses and 12 sequences. Start simple with basic poses like downward facing dog and the cobra, build on them with the more advanced poses like the warrior lunge and the half lotus, and finally take it further with the dolphin and the rocking bow poses.
With step-by-step pictures and practice exercises to keep you on the right track, Get Started: Yoga will help you learn your new skill in no time.
More than any other series on the market, DK's Get Started aims to provide the reader with carefully structured learning and a classroom approach to teaching that allows you to build your own course from practical lessons and themed projects.
Each book begins by answering fundamental questions, identifying an essential starter kit of tools and equipment, and explaining how to build a course. The book then divides into subject areas, with key techniques for each area demonstrated through visual glossaries and step-by-steps, followed by graded projects with annotated instructions and an assessment of how to build on achievements.
Let DK be the perfect one-on-one tutor you never had: patient, illuminating, inspiring - always at hand to point you in the right direction so you can achieve your potential.
