The Big Yoga Book Publication date : March 23, 2006

The health benefits of yoga are now well known; the positive physical and psychological effects of yoga therapies have been amply demonstrated. But this book, by an eminent expert, does not simply aim to teach the various postures and their characteristics, it also examines the numerous applications of yoga therapy to personal development.
This multidisciplinary approach to yoga for all ages — yoga as physical therapy, as psychotherapy and as a means of personal development — will prove to be indispensable for anyone who wishes to stay in good health, master their emotions and find inner peace.
