Product Testimonials

"Joseph's Yoga Teachers' Toolbox is convenient, concise, yet thorough. Each "flashcard" explains which chakras are affected, how to teach the posture, excellent modifications with photos, and these flashcards are easily copied to be carried to class. I can't recommend this toolbox enough. No matter which teacher training you have completed, this will be an excellent resource for beginning and experienced teachers."
- Libby J.

"This book offers a great overview of yoga with easily understandable language and explanations of sanskrit prefixes and words. Because the material is in a three-ring binder, it's easy formulate your own practice by taking the laminated pages out of the binder to use as a guide. Each page offers pictures of the asana, color-coded information about chakras, vayus, etc. On the back of each page is listed exactly how to do the pose and more. Great book!"
- Cynthia L.

 "I just wanted to say thank you for your wonderful Toolbox. This book made it possible for me to complete a 200 and 500 hour RYT teaching certification through Yoga Alliance, experience yoga in India, and establish a studio last September. I am still in awe in how you so carefully selected each word and organized the information in such a logical fashion."

- Susan R.

This is a great tool for teachers. The book is a three ring binder that holds removeable cards that can be used for your yoga lessons. Each card contains the posture, the chakras and the prana vayus (just to name a few) that pertains to the posture. Just a great learning tool and very useful!

"Great sequences. Perfect for using in class. Laminated clearly numbered pages, makes for easy reading as well as taking pages out , to take to class. As the pages are laminated and well laid out they do not get damaged. I am studying with the BWY in the UK and have recommended this book to all my fellow students."
- L. Edwards

"I bought this book at the Symposium for Yoga Therapists in January. It has become an invaluable tool as a teacher to help plan classes and look for posture modifications. I would highly recommend this book not just to yoga teachers, but for students looking for a little extra."
