A request please. Do not advocate putting books underneath your feet. They are revered in India as Knowledge - Saraswathi Goddess of Knowledge and to place the feet on them is akin to dis-respect. Thanks.

welcome to the journey!


I am just getting into yoga (less than a week so far) through a beginner's book i found. During one of the thigh and knee stretches (I'm sorry I don't know the name of the pose) I found that it is almost impossible for me to keep my spine erect. I'm not sure exactly how to proceed as it seems like I simply cannot get myself into the pose, and this is supposed to be some of the easiest stretching...Any advice?


I,m interesting to learn yoga, but I need to have all the information of Yoga in spanish. Do you think that could be possible.

Thanks, Rita
