Pro-yoga, anti-meds.

I mention this up front, because the author sneaks it in at the end: do enough yoga and inner work, and maybe you can cut down on all that horrible medicine you take! And, as usual, not a shred of medical evidence whatsoever to back it up: presumably the rest of the book will lead you to this "obvious" conclusion.

Narrator: Reader, it will not.

But since this is Llewellyn we're talking about, the target audience is not necessarily looking for medical advice. This is why it

A must read for anyone suffering from stress or anxiety that wants to help themselves. This book offers as a guide to empower you to become the master of your anxiety. Full of great lifestyle tips and exercises. Even though it requires practice even after reading the book I feel I have great control on how I chose to respond to external factors
A really great read

Amazing book! Very nicely organized and with a big amount of scientific information and explanations. Liked it so much because it included not only practical physical therapy, but also some exercises for your mind and thoughts.
Highly recommend it to everyone who wants to dig into what yoga is and how it works. Thank you very much to the authors - great job!

Very thorough and helpful. I love how not only are the yoga poses explained clearly, but there is also very detailed information about the history and psychology of yoga and why it works so well.

Inspiring. Yoga Therapy is my life. Dr. Butera along with his wife and colleagues at the YogaLife Institute are bridging the gap between Eastern and Western Medicine.

Good for a beginner but for me, way too basic

So I recently signed up for NetGalley to expand my reading horizons and try out genres that I don’t generally think to check in my local bookstore. This was something that caught my eye because I love yoga. I practice several times a day and it’s one something I come to for a variety of reasons. To stretch after a days work, to breath through illness/asthma, to relax and have alone time, to meditate on my place in the universe and goals for the present and future, to cultivate a healthier body, ...more

I received this book, for free, in exchange for an honest review.

This book centered on using mindfulness to change your life. The authors use Yoga proper to describe how to reduce stress/anxiety.

Since this book covers many different aspects of Yoga there is a lot more here than just poses. If you are expecting a book about how different poses
relate to anxiety/stress you won't see much of that until the appendices. What you will see are plentiful exercises that encourage readers to apply

From Netgalley for a Review:

As someone who has really bad anxiety and stress problems, I always try to read these books that pop up on Netgalley pertaining to easing the subject at hand, you never know, I might learn something that is helpful.

This book is nothing new to me, it takes a combination of mindfulness and different paths of yoga, things that have been known to help stress and anxiety. This book, however, is taking positions and such that are thought to help stress and anxiety, making

Full blog review in progress closer to release date:

This book is so much more than what I even thought it was going to be. As I find myself utilizing yoga as my life becomes more hectic and stressful, I found this book to be an absolutely dynamic read that will be going into my Amazon cart. It is very rare that I will purchase a book once I have reviewed it. This occurs maybe once to twice per year, but this book definitely fits into that category.

This book not only discusses yoga poses, but
This book is dense with text, so it can seem a bit intimidating to read and the authors actually suggest taking parts if that is better for you. The advice may not be utterly shocking to anyone, but there are good explanations for how we get wound up and how yoga can help. Reflection exercizes are there for those who want to really journal- but it is easy to just do the couple that intrigue and not miss out. The routines were really nice, I would have liked more.

This is a very well written book. It gives you not only information on how to help center your life but gives you plenty of poses to use in your daily yoga routine. A very helpful read.

Ultimately, this ended up being an enjoyable read. It's a little new-agey at times, but there are some good ideas in here that I'm going to implement.
