    This book is AWESOME!!! Not only is the information in it diverse and inspiring, 1,001 Pearls of Yoga Wisdom is great to read in any situation. It can be read the whole way through, section by section, or opened to a random page for one ‘pearl’ paragraph at a time. It contains yoga poses, quotes, insights, visualizations, advice, mantras, mudras, and much more. I am a yoga teacher, and I’ve used it in my classes. The students seem to really enjoy it as well. If you like yoga, or even if you don’t know much about it yet, this book is an excellent buy.

    A great book with lots of quick information and interesting tidbits. Has given me great ideas to share with classes and I now start my practice each day with the warm-up suggested from the book. The reason for the 3 star rating is the books format. A little larger book with less pages would have been better. I have a feeling this book will eventually start to pull away from its binding. I open it and hold it ever so carefully. The other small complaint is the layout. The author broke the information down by morning, noon and night, That makes it hard to use it as a reference style book and find things you want. Putting the info together in categories ( ex. all mudras, all breathing exercises, all sayings, etc. ) and coding them with a symbol to suggest when in the day they are useful, would have made this book a gem……..a pearl even. The illustration art is very pretty.
