Booklist Review

Yoga has been gaining popularity as a holistic alternative to traditional Western therapeutics. Addressed to beginning students, this book takes the middle ground by encouraging better health through yoga but also advocating regular care by a health professional. Claiming yoga can help heal several common complaints and illnesses, the authors lay out a basic exercise plan and then suggest variations of it for alleviating symptoms of ailments ranging from fatigue to AIDS and for bettering overall health. Illustrated and simply written, a good choice for those with no previous training in yoga. ~--Tracie Richardson

Library Journal Review

This slim volume is a good example of what hatha yoga manuals ought to be: attractively illustrated and clearly written (though a novice might wish for a spiral, stay-open binding). The focus is on designing a yogic regimen appropriate to one's own health status. The expert authors, of the Vivekananda school of thought, not only emphasize asanas (yoga postures) that they find helpful for certain illnesses but also caution against ones that could prove harmful to those suffering from hypertension, heart disease, and other ailments. A moderate, sensible approach, this is recommended for public libraries and subject collections.-- Judith Eannarino, Washington, D.C. (c) Copyright 2010.
