Got some fine info - I do better with video instruction, but this helped a lot.
Of course my favorite yoga book is "Yoga For Wimps: Poses for The Flexibly Impaired"- because I am!

La guía más completa para la práctica del yoga, que abarca todos los aspectos de esta milenaria disciplina, con claras instrucciones e ilustraciones paso a paso. Indicada tanto para principiantes como para expertos. El nuevo libro del yoga ha sido elaborado siguiendo las enseñanzas de Swami Vishnu-devananda, pionero en Occidente de la práctica del yoga y fundador de los Centros de Yoga Sivananda Vedanta, máximas autoridades en hatha y raja yoga.

Très bon livre de yoga, les postures y sont parfaitement expliquées. Par contre, il faut avoir un bon niveau si on veut vraiment profiter de ce livre (ce qui n'est pas tout à fait mon cas...)
