The Women's Book of Yoga is an essential resource for any woman interested in accessing the power of Yoga to improve her overall health. Through personal stories and careful explanations Linda Sparrow introduces the many ways yoga can be of benefit throughout the various stages of life. The sequences designed by Patricia Walden can be used to focus practice on specific life and health issues as well as to provide beneficial regular daily practice. Each sequence and each pose within each sequence, together with it's desired effects, is described in detail. This is the most helpful book I have ever read on this subject and I look forward to using it as a reference for my Yoga practice.
Author Sparrowe, former editor at "Toga Journal, " has joined forces with Walden, "the best yoga teacher in the world" ("Time" magazine), to offer both a health-enhancing yoga program and a comprehensive reference guide for treating specific health problems. 400 photos.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 353-357) and index.
