We have within us natural resources that can promote health and healing: our body, our mind and our breath. These three components of the whole person have been part of the discipline of yoga for centuries and 'Healing Yoga' shows you how to put them to work safely, efficiently and enjoyably. The main part of the book looks at both physical and psychological common ailments including arthritis, digestive problems, depression, anxiety, fatigue, menstrual problems, stress and allergies. It takes each ailment and offers advice and information on the problem and then gives a sequence of easy yoga postures that can be done to aid the discomfort. Each posture is fully explained and illustrated with step-by-step photography. The book also gives a brief history of yoga and its benefits. It also guides you through aspects of breathing and meditation, warming up and cooling down, what to wear, where to do it and safety. The book ends a selection of wellness routines for men and women that can fit easily into your daily life.Rochester, Minnesota: Mayo Clinic, 2004. Krucoff, Carol, and Krucoff, ...
