"Life is breath. Breath is life."
The body is an energy system with close interplay between breathing, heartbeat and brain function. Yoga provides a maintenance service for that system. Described as "the heart of healing", yoga also provides a harmonising process that leaves no part of the body untouched.
In this beautifully illustrated, practical guide, Howard Kent demonstrates that yoga is more than just a series of exercises, and that it can be used by anyone to promote their own health and well-being. With comprehensive information on energy, diet and lifestyle, as well as fully illustrated step-by-step guides to the basic asanas, this guide is perfect for anyone interested in taking up yoga.
