Show synopsis This complete illustrated practical guide that reflects some of the most important developments in modern yoga teaching, including: the release of pent-up stress from busy lives, the emphasis on physical comfort and safety (working within your own abilities rather than forcing yourself into demanding postures), and a holistic approach, combining yoga with an appropriate lifestyle, especially with regard to diet and meditation. More than 200 step-by-step colour photographs take you through the essential asanas (postures) and sequences, accompanied by clear and simple explanations. Special "boxes" suggest how beginners can adapt the classic postures to make them easier to perform - while more experienced students are shown how to progress to more challenging asanas as they build up their skills. Whatever your level of fitness and flexibility, "Yoga for You" is designed to meet your needs. 'A great mini bible for those in the first years of practising yoga' - "The Times".
