For toning, for flexibility, for feeling composed when life gets demanding, nothing beats yoga: and these poses, drawn from Hatha, are simple to learn. Each one appears, in full detail, in photo sequences. Energize with Warrior, Triangle, and leg raises. Wind down with easy twists and Supported Child. Focus on spirituality and the inner life with breathing and meditation exercises. Quotations from such classic texts as the Bhagavad Gita, along with a variety of sutras, illustrate yoga's philosophical side, and help link body, mind, and spirit. In addition to the postures, advice on "yoga living" includes several checklists on personality and physical type, as well as advice on food.Fraser, Tara is the author of 'Live Better Yoga Exercises and Inspirations for Well-Being', published 2004 under ISBN 9781402711510 and ISBN 1402711514.
