A complete practical guide to yoga from one of its most inspiring young teachers.

Includes more than 200 colour photographs that take you step by step through the essential asanas (postures) and sequences.

Is accessible and inspiring to readers of all levels - from beginners to more experienced yoga students.

Shows how to adapt the classic asanas if necessary to make them easier to perform.

Teaches yoga as part of a fulfilling holistic lifestyle that embraces not only posture and breathing but also diet and meditation.

Describes the traditional wisdom behind yoga, to explain the why as well as the what and the how.

Yoga for You is a complete illustrated practical guide that reflects some of the most important developments in modern teaching - 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 the holistic approach, which combines yoga with an appropriate lifestyle, especially with regard to diet and meditation.

Whatever your level of fitness and flexibility, Yoga for You is designed to meet your needs - whether you are a complete beginner or already have experience from classes.

More than 200 step-by-step colour photographs take you through the essential asanas (postures) and sequences. The author explains the essentials in plain, simple language. 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.

The practical core of the book is complemented by coverage of yoga's traditional physiological and spiritual context, and its roots in ancient India. The idea that the body has its own energy pathways and centres in the form of nadis and chakras is explored in a way that it is clear and inspiring to Western readers.

Specific topics addressed include: the different types of yoga; finding and working with a teacher; how to start practising yoga at home; posture sequences; doing yoga with a partner; and learning to meditate.

Whatever your lifestyle, time pressures, beliefs, or levels of flexibility and fitness, Yoga for You takes you step by step along the path to inner and outer calm.
