Review:

We all experience some ailment in our lives, whether it is suffering from a cold, feeling depressed, not being able to sleep or just generally feeling anxious and frustrated. Wouldn't it be nice to relieve our bodies with these discomforts? Well you can--and the first step is to get hold of this excellent step-by-step guide to yoga.

This book discusses and justifies how yoga is a therapeutic technique in enhancing both physical and spiritual well-being. It is filled with fascinating information and exercises to try out to help alleviate the frustrations of a stressful lifestyle so that we can become at peace with ourselves.

The great thing about this book is that there is a specific programme for each condition and each exercise has notes on the benefits of carrying out that technique. It also provides warnings on certain exercises for people who suffer from particular problems such as back pain.

But that is not to say this guide is not suitable for them because it does offer lots of other alternative techniques which are just as rewarding.

The book also looks at relaxation and meditation and whether it be for three minutes, 10 minutes or for hours, following this step-by-step guide will prove to be advantageous however long you do it for.

This neat little hardback is packed with information which is beneficial to our health and to complement the techniques there are illustrations of how the different movements should be carried out which will aid the reader when putting the technique into practice.

This pocket-sized guide is an invaluable introduction into the therapy of yoga. If you feel there is no way that you can fit this natural treatment into your busy lifestyle, do not fear as this book also provides a weekly planner of ways to establish a personal daily programme which is simple and easy to integrate into any type of lifestyle. --Louise Coyle
