Overview

From Women's Health contributor and yoga expert Kathryn Budig-the essential, authoritative guide to yoga, for beginners and beyond.

Approximately 16 millions Americans now practice yoga on a regular basis. Devotees can't rave enough about this ancient art of meditation, breathing, and physical postures that calms the mind and slims the body.
Unlike fitness fads, yoga is worth the hype. The postures stretch and tone lean muscle mass and sculpt a strong and slender physique-burning up to 400 calories in a 90-minute session. But yoga does something even better. It's proven to reduce the biggest cause of weight gain-stress-which 43% of Americans say makes them overeat.

This definitive volume features:

- every essential pose to help readers lose weight and transform their bodies
- Total Body Yoga: targeted workouts in 15 minutes or less
- core-strengthening routines for hotter, more satisfying sex
- a healthy, mindful eating plan centered around calming, cleansing foods

Covering everything from basic postures to relaxation techniques to avoiding common injuries, The Women's Health Big Book of Yoga is the only guide readers need to achieve their fittest, healthiest, happiest selves.

Got this book at the library and went to B&N the next day and bought it. I love this book, variations to all poses, exercise sequences, poses for health purposes and well being. Especially good for the beginner Yogster. The ladies at work went and bought their own copies to practice by.

I use this book all the time now! If you've never done yoga before it can be a little difficult knowing how to transition between poses. The book offers several different yoga poses, explaining how to do them and how they help your body. It has poses if you're working out a specific part of your body, if you're an athlete, or if you're looking to yoga for your health.

Love this book. Beautiful layout, written in a inspiring and empowering way! It really answers a lot of questions for the passionate western yogi. I really appreciate the sense of humor and encouraging way Kathryn writes. As a Yoga teacher, it is a must in my collection!!!  This book is great for anyone who l  loves Yoga, and wants to read about it in an understandable way. Kathryn has a way of making me feel that I can do all that too, and I love that.
