Comments: This isn't a tarot deck at all, but a guide to basic yoga postures. The idea is that, if you have to learn yoga by yourself, you can more easily use cards to learn, than you could with books that fall shut. Hence the cards are large enough for you to see them while you exercise.

The cards are color-coded and divided into nine categories:

1. Red - warm-up exercises.
2. Orange - side bends.
3. Yellow - twists.
4. Green - back bends.
5. Blue - forward bends.
6. Violet - inverted postures.
7. Brown - sitting postures.
8. Black - relaxation position.
9. White - balance exercises.

As the various postures are fully explained on the back of the cards, the book concentrates on structure & techniques.

The packaging is to be commended. It is a good, sturdy box which will sit nicely on your bookshelf.

Feedback time: What do you think? There are lots of non-game, non-tarot card sets available. Would you like to see more sets like this one?
