    Fantastic Funny Book for Yourself or Your Mom, Sister or Friend!

    This is a great little book. If you've never tried Yogo, then buy this book if you have tried but thought most yoga books or tapes were too stuffy, then this is the book for you! Easy to follow and fun!

    A YOGA BOOK FOR REAL WOMEN

    Finally a yoga book that swaps the patchouli for a martini! I've been very reluctant to try yoga because of its heavy spirituality and intimidating 'perfect' women, but much to my relief I didn't find gurus or supermodels in this clever little book. Instead, I found something far more pleasing and useful for me--yoga poses addressing my pains and problems, from the occasional hangover to insomnia,and yes, I must admit, the dreaded JIGGLY BUTT! It seems as if this book was written just for me. Last week, to put it mildly, I wanted to push my boss off a short pier (excuse the overused pun), but instead I opted to keep my job and do Pose 12 which cools anger and it worked! A few nights ago, after a spicy, bean-filled Mexican dinner, I found myself reaching for my trustworthy little book and getting into Pose 35 which relieves gas and bloating (the family appreciated this one). Unlike other yoga books, Yoga to the Rescue separates poses into very useful categories, like Restore, Sanity, and Energy. There is even a Ragtime category which is great for those of us who suffer the monthly munchies to the blues. I honestly have to say, I may have never tried yoga, if it wasn't for this uplifting, clever, user-friendly book!!! I highly recommend it to my fellow female yogaphobics you will silently thank me after a spicy, bean-filled Mexican dinner.

    What a Great Gift!

    I received this book as book as a gift from a friend, and I was so taken by it that I bought 5 more copies to give to other friends. I was even inspired to buy the ring version of this book, since it is easier to follow the instructions in that format. I highly recommend this book (as well as the ring version) to anyone who does yoga or wants to give it a try. The book is filled with humor, good advice, and easy-to-follow instructions.

    Yoga to the Rescue: Remedies for Real Girls.

    I was given 'Yoga to the Rescue: Remedies for Real Girls' as a birthday present and just adore this book. It is so well done. So real. So fun! With Yoga being a personal passion of mine, this gift couldn¿t be more loved. Amy Luwis is very talented and illustrates the joy one can derive from yoga while eliminating the mystique that sometimes shrouds it. Well done! Yoga IS for real people. This book will be one of my favorites and shared with my yoga buddies.
