Summary

Summary

Slow Yoga is a unique and enjoyable combination of physical exercise used in traditional yoga, and slow, sustained muscular tension, used in strength training. The benefits of traditional Yoga are well documented: it calms the mind and reduces stress; it improves flexibility, posture and balance and strengthens breathing muscles. Slow Yoga produces all these effects, but also allows you to work at your own pace to enhance your body health in many other ways, including improved muscle tone, increased strength and greater endurance. Using easy to follow instructions and step-by-step illustrations, practising Slow Yoga on a daily basis will increase general fitness and well-being, and combined with a healthy diet, can decrease the risk of diabetes, coronary heart disease, cancer of the colon, and fractures and falls.
