Yoga for Everyone
|Author:||Dianne Bondy; Dorling Kindersley Travel Staff|
Yoga is for every body, including yours
For years, yoga books have asked readers to bend over backward (literally ) to conform to their physical demands. It's time for the opposite--for readers to demand that yoga conform to their individual needs. It's time for a yoga book to reflect the broader population that would benefit from a yoga practice geared toward them. It's time for Yoga for Everyone
This book offers yoga for every type of body: big, small, elderly, pregnant, disabled--everyone. No matter who you are or what you look like or what your abilities are, you can do all 50 poses in this book. The variations to classic poses in this book will also allow you to perform all 10 sequences, which combine different poses into one singular experience and focus on specific physical and mental benefits.
So forget what you've heard. Yoga isn't just for the privileged few. It's meant to be enjoyed by everybody and every body. Yes, you can do yoga--and Yoga for Everyone will show you how
"Dianne is a wonderful teacher with a voice and a message that's absolutely needed not only in the yoga community but also in the world. I'd go as far as to say that this book is the most important yoga book released this year. This book smashes the myth of the thin, able-bodied yogi and provides a safe introduction to the art of yoga in a way that's accessible to all. Yoga is for everyone "
-- Rachel Brathen, author of Yoga Girl
"Dianne's approach is creative, customizable, and firmly rooted in compassion and inclusivity. Because Dianne presents several options for each pose--each one explained in a clear, digestible manner that demystifies the purpose behind the pose and addresses common frustrations--Yoga for Everyone will make a great matside companion for students of all levels."
-- Kat Heagberg, editor in chief of Yoga International
"Dianne Bondy is one of the most important figures in contemporary yoga, and her brilliance is reflected in this book. Her yoga is an exploration of potential and possibility--inclusive and accessible. She explores the diversity of abilities and experience, and she lifts us all up through her embrace of humanity."
-- Jivana Heyman, founder of Accessible Yoga
