Among the many writers on the subject of yoga, Barbara Currie, author of 10-minute Yoga Workouts, has attained a position of considerable respect. She has been teaching yoga for over 30 years, and has some claim to being one of the first to bring about the subject's great popularity today. Known as a popular presenter on GMTV, the sales of her videos (such as The Power of Yoga) have guaranteed vast audiences. So is 10-Minute Yoga Workouts able to present in a book format the invaluable advice that she dispenses in other media? The answer is: definitely!
Subtitled Power Tone your Body from Top to Toe, this large-format, handsomely illustrated book dispenses with the less-than-helpful line drawings found in so many yoga books, and features Barbara Currie herself in large photographs, demonstrating unambiguously such topics as power toning for hips and bottoms, gentle stretching for the thighs, twists to remove tension from the spine and a programme for toning midriff and waistline. Currie does not assume we are fully conversant with the finer points of yoga, and the accessible beginners' work-outs and 10-minute morning energisers are perfect for those coming to yoga for the first time.
10-Minute Yoga Workouts is also simultaneously tailored for the more experienced yoga practitioner--the 40-minute advanced class is perfect for those at a more experienced level. Whether you're using simple stretching to relax mind and body, looking for ways to combat tiredness and lack of energy or using yoga to alleviate particular medical conditions, all of these topics may be found in this colourful and accessible guide. --Barry ForshawReview:
