Strike a pose: Yoga to Stay Young Simple Poses to Keep You Flexible, Strong, and Pain-Free by Rachel Scott

Although this book is title Yoga to stay Young, I think that it will be welcomed by anyone who is new to yoga and wondering about giving it a try.  The author is a highly experienced yoga teacher.  She is a gentle and reliable guide to all of the poses that are included in the text.

The book begins with some basics including a brief history of yoga, a section on why yoga works and another on making yoga a personal practice.  This is followed by poses in sections that focus on different body parts such as the neck and shoulders, the hips, buttocks and hamstrings, the knees and more.  The book next includes yoga sequences that are related to different kinds of activities; included, for instance, are poses for waking up, walking or lifting heavy things, followed by yoga for activities such as running, swimming or biking. There is even a section on yoga for exercise recovery and one for aches and pains.

I highly recommend this title for readers who are looking for a helpful introduction to yoga.  Order your mat and begin!

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
