I really love this book, though I don't have time to use it often. It's nice to have a reference for practice with illustrations that look more like me, with modifications that actually work. ( )

This is a much needed book for larger people who want to practice yoga. The photo were very clear and the explanations easy to read. I enjoyed reading the book. ( )

It is harder to start doing yoga when you are an “XXL” size, so it is great that someone wrote a book specifically to address this problem. The photographs are excellent, as are the explanations. This book makes taking up yoga actually look like a reasonable possibility if you are a large person, unlike the average yoga book. The alternative pose positions give reasonable options for a variety of body types and abilities. I would recommend this book for anyone with size or other mobility issues. If you have been scared off of trying yoga by looking at pictures of yoga experts excelling at poses, you should take a look at this book. ( )

Although I have not finished working through all the exercise in this book, I have been working through the easier ones. They are creative and effective adaptions of yoga positions - who would have thought you could do the Tree posture while lying on your back! And yet the stretch is still wonderful, helping develop the flexibility and concentration I associate with standard yoga asanas.

Besides being for those with excess weight issues, I think many of these positions would work for other people with mobility issues such as the elderly.

I am loving this book - and my body and back do, too.

My only criticism is that all the models demonstrating poses are female - the intro states that the book is for men as well as women, but we need a few males in the mix to make that a believable statement. ( )

I never review books unless I can send them to my Kindle, but I am very glad I made an exception for Yoga XXL. I'm someone who stopped practicing yoga when I became XXL and misses it terribly. This book shows me how I can make accommodations for my size and still enjoy the benefits of yoga. Thank you Dr. Kollack for acknowledging the needs of a population often overlooked. I highly recommend this book. ( )
