Yoga, The Iyengar Way by Silva, Mira and Shyam Mehta:This was the first yoga book I ever purchased way back in the, ahem, 90's. The pictures are archaic and the pages are releasing from their spine! I STILL reference this one often. The home practice sequences are perfect for beginners.
Yoga Mind, Body, and Spirit by Donna Farhi: Lovely book--thoughtfully written and a wealth of good information. Wonderful advice and sequencing for home practice.
30 Essential Poses for Beginning Students and Their Teachers, by Judith Lasater: This is made for beginners! Teachers will find valuable sequencing and adjustment tips.
