Easy Does It Yoga: The Safe and Gentle Way to Health and Well-Being

Easy Does It Yoga Description

The American Yoga Association’s Easy Does It Yoga is a safe, easy-to-use guide to renewed physical and emotional wellness.

Easy Does It Yoga, a nationally recognized fitness program, adapts traditional yoga techniques to make them safe and easy for people who may face physical limitations. But, although it is a gentler form of yoga, it is just as effective as more strenuous fitness programs for getting and staying in shape.

Alice Christensen, founder, of the American Yoga Association, guides you through the program, showing you:
-The basics of yoga exercising, breathing, and meditation with specific, easy-to-follow illustrations throughout
-Specific postures such as the Gentle Full Bend, the Easy Sun Pose, and the Elbow Twist to help you target your weaker spots and increase your overall flexibility
-The unique benefits of Yoga for alleviating chronic health conditions ranging from arthritis to depression
-A six-week program to get you started and to help you develop a basic understanding of essential movements
-Specially designed sequences to boost energy or bring calm, depending on your specific needsThis book was a very pleasant surprise. I’ve been teaching yoga for some time now, but wanted to begin a chair yoga class for people who either don’t want to get down on the floor or who can’t get down on the floor. I had some ideas of my own, but really wanted another person’s perspective so ordered this book. It was all I had hoped for and then some. Ideas and suggestions abound for those who are barely able to do chair yoga to those who are quite able, giving the instructor much to draw on to expand and enrich what is covered in the classes. Highly recommended.
-Strategies to incorporate the yoga lifestyle into your daily routine, not only with exercise, but also with tips on creating a healthy diet and ways to develop a more peaceful, positive mental attitude

Regardless of your age or physical condition, The American Yoga Association’s Easy Does It Yoga will inspire you to awaken your body and mind and experience the well-being and fulfillment that yoga brings.

“The American Yoga Association’s Easy Does It Yoga is very helpful because the directions and photos are clear. The text is also encouraging and takes a do where you are approach.”

“As a Yoga teacher I frequently review yoga books for ideas and new information. I am very excited about Easy Does It Yoga! Could it be that finally Yoga has come of age? This book might just persuade the Yoga doubters to view Yoga as an acceptable exercise that truly will benefit the mind, body and spirit in the present and on into aging. The author, Alice Christensen, has written a comprehensive and compassionate book on Yoga and its tremendous health benefits for the older person, and indeed, anyone physically challenged by bad health, addictions and inertia. The various disciplines of yoga are discussed and benefits illustrated by case examples. The exercises are well detailed in words and pictures. Nutrition is covered in a reader friendly style that lists detailed menus of wholesome foods. Easy Does It Yoga should be required reading for any business involved in the health care needs of today’s older population.”
