Full Description

(excerpt from the Proposal)
           "I work in conjunction with MDs, chiropractors and acupuncturists in developing a unique yoga therapy curriculum for patients that works with specific injuries and disabilities. In doing this, Iíve learned that patients with chronic aches and pains have found lasting relief with simple Yoga postures and breathing techniques. Some have had recoveries that they term "minor miracles."
           Your chiropractor will tell you, "You are as young as your spine is supple." But if you have a serious bone, joint or spine problem, the orthopedic surgeon will say that until your condition is severe enough to need surgery, there is nothing he can do.
           YOGA FOR COMMON ACHES AND PAINS will move you away from surgery and toward a supple body. In less than five minutes a day, and using only a few movements, anyone can relieve most headaches, stiff necks, sore shoulders and tormenting backs. Throughout the book, numerous "mini" sequences (3, 4 or 5 poses) are suggested for specific physical conditions. Breathing techniques are incorporated to calm the central nervous system, reduce hypertension and other systemic disorders, and diminish the symptoms of sinus conditions and asthma, while building strength and stamina in low-energy sufferers and those with challenged immune systems.
As with my first book, How To Calm Down, the amount of time needed is only five minutes in the morning and evening. Most of the encyclopedic tomes on Yoga are much too dense for the new or early student. YOGA FOR COMMON ACHES AND PAINS, easily accessible, offers more depth than many books three times its length.
