Yoga for Partners teaches readers to share Asana practice and explore an intimate tradition that has been handed down from guru to disciple for thousands of years.

The book opens with brief introductory material covering the core principles of yoga, the importance of breathing and the role of mental focus; then Yoga for Partners presents the 75 postures across two page spreads that picture the posture on one page while describing on the opposing page the proper way for two people to execute the posture together. These explanations are divided into easy-to-understand categories including a short paragraph on the positioning of the bodies and the movements each partner makes, as well as a simple, straight-forward sentence describing breathing, focus, hold and possible variations for the posture.

Everything about the book's package is inviting. The pictures are beautiful with an stylish black and white gallery feel. The author writes in a friendly style and the text is subdivided into those simple categories. The trim size is a small, nearly square 6.5 by 6.75. And the book is priced at only $14.95.
