Yoga has been studied and practised in the East for thousands of years. We in the West, coping with the stressful demands of modern life, have only recently discovered the restorative and peaceful benefits of this ancient art. While yoga releases strain and tiredness from the body, it also clears the mind and restores energy levels. Half an hour of yoga each day brings greater enthusiasm and more balanced energy into our lives. It has the capacity to improve sleep, increase concentration, and deepen our levels of awareness and contentment. Simply Yoga, the book, guides you with clear instructions and step-by-step photographs. There are detailed instructions on simple breathing techniques and a meditation practice. Simply Yoga, the DVD, encourages you through twelve dynamic postures in a 30-minute routine. All you need is a cushion and a blanket.
