    For people who love yoga but have some restrictions due to back injury and associated pain

    My husband and I have both suffered back injuries (from over doing sports) that have limited our ability to do many yoga moves. This book emphasizes yoga that is safe for people with back injuries and recommends poses that are therapeutic. Lots of easy to read, interesting information about common causes of back pain.

    Informative

    If you have a back problem or deal with clients or patients who do this book is a great resource. Very informative, its has exercises and explanations that will help the layperson and the professional dealing with back issues . I recommend this to my clients and close friends who have back problems. Even if you don't suffer with pain, the stretches are great for prevention as well- I've done the exercises presented in the book and I can tell you that they do help!
