Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The ancient Indian philosophy of yoga offers a much-needed unified and holistic approach to bone health . . . . The yoga perspective has everything to do with alignment, balance, harmony, and a life lived in accordance with natural laws."—Susan E. Brown, Ph.D., author of Better Bones, Better Body

Praise for The Woman's Book of Yoga and Health, by the same authors:

"As practical as it is inspirational, this is a reference I'll use for years to come."—Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom

Library Journal
These two books discuss how yoga can be incorporated into women's overall wellness routines. In Yoga for a Healthy Menstrual Cycle, Sparrowe (The Woman's Book of Yoga and Health) openly discusses this traditionally sensitive health topic in light of current medical information and provides instructions for the accompanying yoga sessions, which were designed by Walden, an internationally recognized yoga teacher. The photographs of her executing the poses are clear and easy to follow. The idea is to relax during this physically and mentally stressful time, which may relieve some of the common complaints associated with menstruation or reproductive disorders. In Yoga for Healthy Bones, Sparrowe uses a similar approach, except the aim is to help women prevent bone loss (osteoporosis) related to aging and to maintain lifelong healthy bones. She does not claim that yoga can prevent or reverse bone loss (which has not been proven), only that it can contribute to better general bone health. Both are recommended for health and wellness collections in public libraries. Academic libraries may find Yoga for a Healthy Menstrual Cycle especially informative and therapeutic for their female students.-Deborah Broocker, Georgia Perimeter Coll., Dunwoody Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    Definitely a must read...

    This was such a wonderful book! I read it from front to back. I even read some of it while walking on the treadmill at the gym! It is a very informative book and easy to understand. The yoga poses have good pictures to show examples as well. I am in my early twenties and believe that women of all ages would find this book to be a good read. Even if you aren't doing yoga this book is still informative enough for women who want to try to take care of themselves.
