This book was great and is perfect for anyone who is larger and needs a bit of help to make the yoga poses work for them.

The book is easy to understand, has good tips (including the strap suggestion, which can be applied to any large breasted woman) to make Yoga a more comfortable experience. Plus she has a whole bunch of poses I've not seen before... as a casual yoga participant.

Megan Garcia is a beautiful and talented magazine, catalogue and video model. She is also a certified yoga instructor from the respected Kripalu Center in Massachusetts, she teaches regular yoga classes in Manhattan, New York, and has starred in the yoga video: Just My Size.

Intended for beginners, Mega Yoga is a user friendly entry level yoga treatment that more than covers the basic concepts of yoga. Mega Yoga also teaches compassion and is judgement free.

Bright, glossy, and full colour, the work is user friendly. Each category of poses has Megan wearing a different colour to clearly mark the sections and generally follows the level of intensity of the treatment.

As a yoga instructor, I was hoping for some tips and trick to help modify and accommodate the challenges for curvy and plus sized yogins and Megan delivered. Options and props like blocks, walls and chairs to intensify or modify a pose, are there, oh but I won’t dare spoil the awesome trick she has come up with for straps. She has some skills and is not afraid to put herself out there. I really enjoyed and recommend this work.
