    My aunt (a flourishing over-50 yoga devotee) recently sent me (a very stiff 33-year old beginner) a copy of Suza Francina¿s marvelous book, <i>The New Yoga for People Over 50.</i> I previously acquired Mira Mehta's authoritative <i>How to Use Yoga,</i> which I find quite instructive and aspire to begin using (yoga isn¿t as easy as it looks, folks!). However, I don't believe anything could inspire me as much as seeing and reading the testimonials of so many over-50 yoga practitioners in Francina¿s book; their execution of some of the more challenging postures is absolutely mind-altering! Francina¿s book and her work in general are truly a blessing. Bolstered by the knowledge <i>The New Yoga for People Over 50</i> has given me I have begun 'converting' my mother, who frequents the weight machines at the gym. She is a fit and vibrant 54-year old, but her hectic lifestyle, which includes a six-day work week (she owns a business) needs the addition of yoga to ensure her health and longevity. This book is a wonderful, invaluable tool for everyone, regardless of age. I hope to catch up with Francina¿s octogenarian students within a few years!!! With Francina and her students as examples, I expect I will do just that ¿ and anyone who reads this book will be motivated to set a similar goal: feel better and live longer with yoga!

    Yoga, when all else fails.

    I had a frozen shoulder and went to therapy for a year with little or no relief from it. I bought a beginners tape of yoga and began doing Yoga and within 3 months, my shoulder became flexible again and I felt younger and more vibrant. It also gave my body a sense of peace and well being. I recommend Yoga to anyone desiring a heathier body and mind. I enjoy your newletters. They are always very interesting and informative. Shan
