Yoga For Beginners: Essential Poses For Yoga Beginners is a book that outlines the basic yoga poses that a novice can try if they have an interest in starting to practice yoga. The author has made a concerted effort to make everything as simple as possible so that it can easily be understood.
There are many books outlining yoga poses but none is as simple as and easy to understand as this. The book is also well timed as it is being published in a period when persons are seeking various solutions to remain healthy or to get healthy apart from modifying the diet of course.
The book is filled with over thirty illustrations as well as instructions on how to get the poses done. They are all basic poses which would be done in the initial stages of practicing yoga. Before you move on to the intermediate level, the body would be properly conditioned by these poses. Some people may think that they are not very effective but once they start doing the various poses they start to feel the positive effects. Yoga is a nice low impact way to exercise and keep fit. The author knows this and conveys this in her book.

REVIEW:
A great book for beginners!
Easy, step-by-step instructions, paired with an illustration to show you how to do the stance. Each chapter is learning a new yoga pose, and teaching you clearly how to do it, as well as the proper breathing techniques.
I loved learning a new pose every day and will continue to incorporate these into my normal work out.
If you're looking to better your body, gain more physical strength and tone up your muscles, then this is for you.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
